“Reiki” (ray-key) is a Japanese form of energy healing that originated in the early 20th century. Energy healing is a form of alternative medicine based on the thought that we all have an unseen life force energy flowing through our bodies. It is believed that energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or even emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness. The goal of Reiki is to balance that energy flow.
Reiki practitioners use their hands to channel energy to your body, improving the flow and balance of energy to support healing. During a session, you’ll typically lie down fully clothed, as your Reiki practitioner gently places their hands, palms down, on or just above your body. Some practitioners use a series of different hand positions during the treatment. Styles and processes may vary so speak with your Reiki practitioner for questions regarding their specific approach.
I was introduced to Reiki over 20 years ago. I experienced a traumatic event and couldn’t seem to move forward. I felt incredibly stuck in this trauma. A friend suggested Reiki to me…it was the first time I had ever even heard the word, let alone be familiar with its benefits. For me, Reiki helped to clear blocked energy.
If you could benefit from one or all of these, Reiki is right for you!
A certified Reiki Master is someone who has been attuned to the highest level of Reiki. The attunement process opens up your body so that you're able to transmit healing energy, and lasts for your entire life. I am a Holistic Wellness Coach AND a certified Reiki Master. I practice Reiki self-treatments almost daily. I can tell the days that I don’t do it…I’m less grounded, less focused, and tend to have more physical ailments (achy muscles or joints) on those days.
Reiki can be done in person or through distance Reiki. Distance Reiki sessions work because energy is not limited by distance. Distance is only a physical limitation, so sessions can be done without clients being physically present. We are all connected, as we are all energy matter and part of a larger whole.
