Reiki (pronounced ray-key)
can do all of the above commonly reported benefits – and
Developed in Japan in 1921 by Mikao Usui and brought to the
United States in 1938, Reiki is a light touch healing technique
which gently facilitates each person's own ability to find and
maintain balance in body, mind and spirit. Often known as a spiritual
healing practice, Reiki helps each person to discover meaning
and purpose in life, often serving as a bridge to a better connection
with yourself and others.
Every aspect of your life may be
enhanced, whether you want to maintain a healthy state of
wellness or you are facing the physical and emotional challenges
of a life-altering disease.
The technique is based on the belief that
there is an energetic flow in and through all living things.
When this energy is low or blocked, we are more likely to get
sick and feel stressed. The Chinese intention of “moving
chi" to bring harmony into the body is also the foundation
for the proven modalities of acupuncture, acupressure, tai chi,
and qi gong. A Reiki session restores this flow of energy, naturally
helping the body's own innate ability to rediscover wellness.
Your Reiki Treatment
Reiki sessions are ideally held in a quiet and comfortable setting,
whether in a private studio in The Reiki Center or in your
own home. While lying fully-clothed on a padded massage table,
the client’s experience is enhanced by soft music, scented
candles and low lighting.
With light touch, usually no more than the
weight of a nickel, the practitioner will gently place her hands
on multiple locations on the client’s body. Many of the
selected hand locations correspond to centers of energy known
Often the practitioner’s hands are a few inches above the
client, assessing the energy field surrounding the body. It’s
not uncommon for warmth, tingling, and/or movement to be experienced
during a session as the client draws what is needed.
An immediate positive response by clients
is almost always expressed. A decrease or elimination of pain
is common. Individuals who were previously feeling anxious or
stressed often report a high level of relaxation and sense of
well-being. In fact, many clients fall asleep during a treatment!
While many benefits are immediately evident, the positive shifts
in your rebalanced body may be experienced for days or even weeks
