What is Reiki?

“Reiki” (ray-key) is a simple, yet powerful relaxation and stress management technique.  It is Japanese in origin, founded in the early 1900s by Mikao Usui. 

“Rei” means spirit and “ki” means energy, which translates as as “universal life energy.”  Since all things are made up of energy, all things consist of Reiki. 

A Reiki session can help "unblock" and let your energy flow uninterrupted.  Most people feel "refreshed" and "balanced" after Reiki.

Optimally, we want the energy within our body to "move freely."  When it does not, you may experience a "blockage" (clogging up or stoppage) of energy flow.  (This blockage may manifest itself as stress, headache, pain, etc.)

Benefits of Reiki:

  • Promotes health and well-being
  • Relieves or decreases physical pain
  • Calms the mind and emotions
  • Reduces and releases feelings of anxiety, stress and depression
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Aids in relaxation
  • Can help you sleep

Reiki is not a substitute for proper medical care.  However, Reiki is offered in over 800 American hospitals and works as a complimentary practice to help patients relax before or after a rehabilitation treatment.
