What is Reiki?


Reiki is a Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction that has been noted to promote healing. Reiki brings mind, body, and spirit into harmony. It was developed in Japan in 1922 by Mikao Usui. Rei means “spiritual wisdom” Ki means “universal life force energy.”  Essentially, Reiki means “spiritually guided life force energy.”  It is commonly known as “healing energy.”

Reiki is safe, non-invasive and does not cause harm. As with all Reiki sessions, the intention is to clear, cleanse, open and activate the 7 main chakras, or energy wheels, located along the spine of the body.  As Reiki is intelligent energy, it knows exactly where to go and guides me to those areas.  While also using my intuition, I am guided to other areas that are in need. This provides a total mind, body and spirit alignment and allows the body to facilitate the healing process.

Reiki energy allows the muscles to relax and increase blood flow to the treated areas, which aids in the healing process.  Reiki has been noted to help with stress, anxiety, insomnia, headaches, upset stomach, pain and inflammation, and so much more.

Reiki is becoming popular in hospitals across the United States and in other countries. Reiki is being offered in conjunction with standard hospital care.  Reiki practitioners do not diagnose medical or psychological conditions, nor do they prescribe medicine or medical treatment, nor interfere with a licensed medical practitioner.  Reiki does not take place of medical care, treatment, or medications. Reiki does not treat or heal; it can be used to compliment traditional medical issues.
