The word Reiki, is the combination of the words:
“Rei”, which means Universal Life force and
“Ki”, which is energy.
Reiki is a Japanese healing technique of “laying-on” hands, where the Reiki practitioner
serves as a conduit to channel life-force energy to the recipient, activating the recipient’s
natural ability to heal the body, and balancing the subtle energies. Reiki is an Alternative,
Holistic form of healing, not only focusing on the physical aspect, but also the mind, emotions and
spirit as a whole.
Reiki is a complementary treatment modality, that stimulates energy to move through the body. Reiki is not a religion, and does not require any specific belief system in order to be effective. Reiki works on the principle of the Life Energy that is inherent in all things within the Universe. This Universal Life Force Energy is what connects us all to one another, to our surroundings, and to the Universe.
I recommend that you dress in loose fitting, comfortable clothing. When you arrive for your session , you will be asked to lie down on a massage table. You will remain fully clothed. During the session, I will place my hands on or just above your body, channeling Reiki energy through you. Each person’s experience is unique, however most commonly, you will feel your body relax and you may feel warmth coming from my hands. You may even fall asleep during the session. As the energy moves through your body, you may feel different physical sensations arise, visions/messages or you may feel emotions stirring. This is all very normal and a natural part of the healing process.
