Reiki (pronounced ray-key) can do all of the above commonly reported benefits and more!

Developed in Japan in 1921 by Dr. Mikao Usui and brought to the United States in 1938, Reiki is a light touch healing technique which gently facilitates each person's own ability to find and maintain balance in the body, mind, and spirit. Often known as a spiritual healing practice, Reiki helps each person to discover meaning and purpose in life, often serving as a bridge to a better connection with yourself and others.

The technique is based on the belief that there is an energetic flow in and through all living things. When this energy is low or blocked, we are more likely to get sick and feel stressed.  

Your Reiki Treatment:

Reiki sessions are ideally held in a quiet and comfortable setting. While lying fully clothed on a padded massage table, the client's experience is enhanced by soft music, scented candles (clients preference) and low lighting.  

With light touch, the practitioner will gently place hands on multiple locations on the client's body. It is common for warmth, tingling, and/or movement to be experienced during a session as the client draws what is needed.

An immediate positive response by clients is almost always expressed. A decrease or elimination of pain is common. Individuals who were previously feeling anxious or stressed often report a high level of relaxation and sense of increased energy and vitality.

In fact, many clients fall asleep during a treatment where the body can heal and repair. While many benefits are immediately evident, the positive shifts in your rebalanced body may be experienced for days or even weeks afterwards.

Reiki clears toxins in the body. During a Reiki session, toxins are released from areas of the body that are receiving healing. The Reiki heals and releases the toxins for the body to dispose of. When healing takes place, it is in with the healing and then out with the stress, disease, and blockages.

So, it is important to drink lots of water after a session. The fact that the toxins are no longer in your body is the good news.

Reiki is "Smart energy." It is direct from the Creator, the Divine, and The Universe. Reiki goes to the root cause of illnesses and begins the healing process there because our Creator knows where the root cause is.

Reiki is used in tandem with conventional health practices and medicine. Reiki is actually used in some open-minded hospitals to help lessen pain and reduce the side effects of drugs, and Reiki can shorten the recovery time of disease and surgery.
