Reiki Therapy Healing
Reiki is an ancient energy healing technique that promotes relaxation and reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki is the Universal vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Practitioners access this energy and allow it to flow to your body to support healing. When your body is relaxed, your energy can flow more freely, stress levels can reduce, and immune function is enhanced, strengthening your resistance to disease.

Reiki Therapy Healing
What is Reiki?
Reiki healing is a Japanese technique used to reduce stress and promote relaxation and healing. Your therapist administers Reiki by laying hands on or off the body. It is founded on the principle that Qi, universal life energy, exists and flows through and around us. It’s the energy that animates and sustains every living thing.
How does Reiki work?
Reiki, or life energy, exists and flows through and around us. In our bodies, it concentrates through a series of channels known as meridians and energy centers known as chakras. This life energy nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting all vital functions. When this flow of energy is disrupted or blocked, it causes diminishment of bodily functions.
Reiki heals by flowing positive energy to adversely affected parts of the body. It raises the energy field in and around the physical body. This can strengthen and heal energy pathways, allowing Qi to flow naturally and healthily.
Is Reiki based on religion?
No. Reiki is not based on any religion. It is simply a healing technique that facilitates contact with the vital life energy around us.
Can Reiki heal my condition?
No promises can be made about the outcome of Reiki or, for that matter, any other healing system, including conventional medicine. It all depends on your intent, background, and the nature of your problem. Healing is an experience unique to the individual. A step forward in one’s healing process is sometimes realizing one’s need for healing.
All of this being said, there are countless testimonies of people praising the healing effects of Reiki. Additionally, it is totally natural and non-invasive.
How is Reiki given?
Reiki is administered with the client lying down, fully clothed, on a treatment table. If you are more comfortable sitting in a chair, that is fine too.
Your therapist gives Reiki energy using light, non-invasive touch. Your therapist will touch and hold various areas of your body — for a period of time — perhaps starting at your head and working down towards your feet.
How does Reiki feel?
Every experience is unique to that individual, but you may feel certain sensations while receiving Reiki. Some clients comment that they feel sensations like heat, tingling, pulsing, and cold, just to name a few. Others may not feel any sensations. Sensations, or their absence, simply relate to the person’s sensitivity to energy. Reiki flows regardless of whether you feel it or not.
What happens after Reiki session?
Your therapist may offer common-sense suggestions for aftercare, such as drinking water, being gentle with yourself, and following your body needs more closely.
After a Reiki session, some people share the following experiences— all positive signs of the body’s natural, cleansing process:
Light-headed: This can be caused by increased energy flow, as areas that were once tense are released.
A little more tired than usual in the evening.
Experience a sense of calm, and/or mental clarity
Immediate relief from discomfort. Or, there could be a temporary increase in discomfort, even muscle soreness (usually a sign that a once-restricted area is receiving increased blood flow). However, the discomfort typically subsides within 24-48 hours.
How many Reiki sessions will I need?
One session alone can bring noticeable improvement.
Reiki is cumulative, so receiving a series of sessions can be beneficial to get more lasting results. Typically, clients come weekly for one month and then begin to space out sessions to bi-weekly and then monthly. Of course, we can always discuss and personalize a treatment plan for you.
Can I stop seeing my doctor or stop taking medication after the session?
No. Reiki works in conjunction with regular medical or psychological treatment. If you have a medical or psychological condition, it is recommended that you see a licensed healthcare professional in addition to receiving Reiki treatment.
Reiki works in harmony with all other forms of healing. Many people have found that meditation can enhance the benefits they receive from receiving Reiki.
