Reiki Energy Healing

What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese Spiritual Healing Art that uses the universal life energy. Reiki is uses universal life energy to move stagnant energy from the body. Stagnant energy can be emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual energy that can causes pain. Stagnant energy can make us like we are in a rut, stuck, or that we cannot move forward in life. The life force energy helps promote emotional and physical wellbeing.

Energy healing is not based on religion, though a belief of a higher power than yourself, is helpful. Reiki is based on love and compassion for others. Reiki is not a cure, nor is it used as a replacement to traditional medical treatment. Reiki is a companion to traditional medical treatment.

How is Reiki Perfromed?
Reiki is performed with the practitioner’s hands either hovering over the body or with the hands on the body. The healer channels the life-force energy from their hands to the client. The healer will use their intuition and divine guidance to remove energy. Reiki can be administered in a chair or on a massage table with a client being fully clothed. Reiki sessions can be anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour. Many clients will have emotional and physical releases during their session which include unexplained crying, twitching, involuntary body movements and coughing. Clients may feel heat or a tingling sensation coming from the practitioner’s hands. It is also common for clients to fall asleep, laugh, recall memories, or see bright lights.
