What is Reiki?

Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy and is an energetic healing method. Universal life force within the human body is vibrational energy.

It is commonly understood that during stress and illness, energy that usually flows through the body can become depleted, blocked, and unbalanced. Reiki helps raise, replenish and rebalance that energy. Reiki promotes relaxation, a sense of peace, security and well-being that promotes self-healing. 

Reiki-- a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch [or distance], to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being. Definitions from Oxford Languages

What is a Reiki Session Like?

Reiki is administered through the hands of a Reiki practitioner with the client lying fully clothed on a massage table. The Reiki practitioner places her hands at locations around the head, shoulders, abdomen, legs and feet. The Practitioner’s hands are held at each location lightly touching, or slightly away from the body. If preformed at a distance the client and practitioner will set up a time where both parties can be in a relaxed distraction free state. The client will set the intention to receive the Reiki healing, and the practitioner will do their work at a distant location. 
Many people report that a Reiki session feels like a wonderful, glowing radiance that surrounds and fills them with feelings of relaxation, peace and well-being that promote healing. Sessions may be guided with Imagery, Meditation, Sound Therapy, Crystal Healing or Intuitive Life Coaching.

What are the Side Effects of Reiki?

There are NO side effects. It is non-invasive and safe for all ages from premature babies to the elderly. Reiki can be performed on a person while they are lying down, sitting or standing. No adjustment in clothing needs to be made, since Reiki flows through any barrier including casts. While it does not need to be done at the same time, it is most effective when the patient is in a relaxed or meditative space at the same time as the therapist is preforming the distance Reiki.

**Reiki is just as effective at a distance as it is in person!**
