What is Reiki?
At its essence, Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy.” In practical terms, Reiki healing is a safe, non-invasive therapy that works on the cellular level. It can be experienced as a stand-alone treatment to healing and it can also be used together with most other therapies to support specific health problems or for prevention, general health, and well-being.
What Are The Common Benefits of Reiki?
Reiki healing is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can benefit from.

What Can I Expect?
Reiki healing sessions are a loving expression of your commitment to self-care and healing. Your intent to simply receive the energy is all that is required.
In-person and remote sessions can expect a brief consultation prior to and after a session to discuss your current needs and concerns.
A Reiki session typically lasts between 45-90 minutes while resting on a comfortable, padded massage table in which you are fully clothed.
During a Reiki healing session, the practitioner places their hands lightly on, or slightly off, the body to channel and direct the flow of Reiki energy to the recipient, clearing blockages, restoring balance, and infusing the whole being with additional universal life force energy.
Distance and absentee Reiki is provided regardless of your location. Distance Reiki is ideal for those unable to receive a session due to geographical constraints, physical or health reasons yet want to be engaged and present for the session via phone or Zoom. Absentee Reiki is ideal for those that prefer to receive the healing treatment without being present and prefer to receive session notes upon the completion of the session.
What Reiki is Not:
Healing and medicine are two very different disciplines. Please remember to seek medical advice from a qualified doctor or practitioner in the case of serious illness.
Reiki sessions should be used with the understanding that Reiki is part of a holistic treatment plan. Reiki is not meant to take the place of standard medical or psychological treatment, but to accompany and work along with it.
