What is Reiki, and How Can It Help You?

Reiki (pronounced ray- key) is a Japanese healing technique that is simple, natural and safe. Reiki is done through gentle touch. A warm and soothing energy flows from the practitioner's hands into the client and promotes relaxation and release of tension. It is facilitated through light, non-invasive touch to a fully clothed person who is lying down or sitting comfortably.

Reiki is based on the idea that an invisible life force energy flows through us. This same life force energy surrounds & permeates all living things, gives order to our world and is the underlying creative intelligence of the universe. If one's life force energy is low or blocked, then we are more likely to become sick or feel stress. If it is high, we are able to maintain balance and health. Reiki treats the whole person, which includes the body, mind, and the soul.

The human body is set up to heal itself. When we cut ourselves, our body starts immediately to heal itself. Reiki helps the body to heal by taking it out of the "Fight or flight" state and putting it into the "Rest, relax, repair" state. Reiki is a balancing energy. What is in excess, Reiki lessens (like pain). What is lacking, Reiki increases, (like energy). It puts one's physical body in the best condition to promote healing. The body's innate intelligence regulates the amount of Reiki that one receives and where it goes so one cannot give or receive too much Reiki.

Reiki works in conjunction with traditional or alternative health care treatments. Side effects of regular medical treatments have also been known to be reduced with Reiki.

What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other unwanted feelings. A state of peace & wellbeing is experienced. At the end of a treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
