WHY CHOOSE REIKI? Is It Just Mumbo-Jumbo?!


Most people fall asleep or go into a meditative state and Reiki is the quickest way to find this quiet place within, where healing occurs and where you can hear the Inner Messages of your Higher Wisdom.

Reiki is an effective STRESS MANAGEMENT tool.

Reiki gets underneath to the source of your stress, and melts it away!

In addition to physical, emotional and attitudinal healing, Reiki often becomes a path to PERSONAL and SPIRITUAL GROWTH.

Reiki is always positive, and heals to your Highest Good and Greatest Joy.

Reiki blends with, and facilitates, all other treatments, both traditional and complimentary.

Reiki is done FULLY CLOTHED, and for most people, this provides great comfort and safety.

Reiki, although very powerful, is VERY GENTLE. It is comfortable and safe for everyone, from newborns to women in their ninth month of pregnancy, to the elderly and those in hospice.

Reiki helps you feel BALANCED, PEACEFUL, and ENERGIZED!

The word “Reiki” comes from the Japanese words “Rei” (universal) and “Ki” (life energy).

Reiki is a type of energy healing.

Energy healing targets the energy fields around the body.

According to practitioners, energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness.

Energy healing aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure. Improving the flow of energy around the body can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and reduce inflammation and other symptoms of illness.

Reiki has been around for thousands of years. But its current form was first developed in 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist called Mikao Usui, who reportedly taught 2,000 people the Reiki method during his lifetime. The practice spread to the U.S. through Hawaii in the 1940s, and then to Europe in the 1980s.

It is commonly referred to as palm healing or hands-on healing.

What Happens In A Reiki Healing Treatment?

Reiki is best held in a peaceful setting, but it can be carried out anywhere. The patient will sit in a comfortable chair or lie on a table, fully clothed. There may or may not be music, depending on the patient’s preference.

The practitioner places their hands lightly on or over specific areas of the head, limbs, and torso using different hand shapes, for between 2 and 5 minutes. The hands can be placed over 20 different areas of the body.

If there is a particular injury, such as a burn, the hands may be held just above the wound.

While the practitioner holds their hands lightly on or over the body, the transfer of energy takes place. During this time, the practitioner’s hands may be warm and tingling. Each hand position is held until the practitioner senses that the energy has stopped flowing.

When the practitioner feels that the heat, or energy, in their hands has abated, they will remove their hands and place them over a different area of the body.

Some Reiki Techniques

The techniques involved have names such as:

  • centering

  • clearing

  • grounding

  • extracting harmful energies

  • infusing

  • smoothing and raking the aura

Some Reiki practitioners will use crystals and chakra healing wands, because they find these can enhance healing or protect a home from negative energy. However, Reiki relies on no other instruments beyond the practitioner.

One of the benefits of Reiki healing is distance healing (where Reiki is sent over several miles) then, many practitioners will use crystals to assist with the energy vibrations.

Reiki Healing Treatments can last between 40-90 minutes and the number of treatments will vary, depending on what a client wishes to accomplish. Some clients prefer to have a one-off treatment, others have a series of sessions to work on a particular issue, and many have a regular/monthly treatments to aid with general well-being, balanced emotions, improved mental health and spiritual and physical balance and growth.
