Reiki Healing

What is Reiki? This versatile spiritual healing practice can be given to anyone, anywhere, whether hands-on in person, or distantly. Regardless of the issues you face, Reiki can help you to meet those issues with more clarity and greater peace of mind. Reiki treatments have been reported to be help people cope with a wide range of health conditions including:

  • Anxiety

  • Cancer, and side effects from cancer treatment, including nausea and fatigue

  • Chronic Pain

  • Depression

  • Digestive issues including Crohn's disease and irritable bowel syndrome

  • Fertility issues

  • Grieving, especially in death and dying issues

  • Heart Disease

  • Immune disorders

  • Infertility

  • Insomnia

  • Major life transitions

  • Neurodegenerative disorders

  • Rehab after illness, injury, or surgery

  • Releasing addiction

  • Stress relief

  • Trauma

​The most commonly reported benefits of Reiki treatment and Reiki self-practice are relaxation, pain management, reduced anxiety, and reduced depression. However, an expanded sense of self-awareness, better communication and satisfaction in relationships, increased intuition, and a general experience of enhanced well-being and happiness has also been reported. The lack of standards in practice and education has created a lot of confusion and misinformation about the practice of Reiki. Search the internet or read any books or articles on 'Reiki' (pronounced ray‑kee) and you may find definitions ranging from a 'hands‑on healing technique' to 'spiritual energy work' to an 'ancient Tibetan or ancient Egyptian practice.' Or you may be lead to believe that a Reiki practitioner 'transfers energy' into a recipient and/or has been 'given' the ability to 'heal' others. Seems pretty mystical and magical, doesn't it? Unfortunately, it's also pretty misleading. So what IS Reiki?

The truth is, the practice of Reiki is an individual experience and therefore it cannot be definitively explained or defined, however it can be described. Simply put, Reiki can be described a non-religious, individual spiritual practice of stillness and quietude, like yoga or meditation, created by a Japanese man named Mikao Usui in 1922 (see photo at right).
