What is Reiki?
Reiki is a hands-on natural form of healing using universal life force energy. The term comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Reiki, is an abundant, gentle spiritually guided energy that is not tied to any specific religion or nationality.

According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, people use Reiki for relaxation, stress reduction and symptom relief, in efforts to improve overall health and well-being. A Reiki treatment may do the following:
- Bring about a peaceful, deep state of relaxation
- Dissolve energy blockages
- Detoxify the body
- Support the well-being of a person receiving traditional medical treatments
- Supply universal life force energy to the body
- Stimulate the body’s immune system
- Help to relieve pain and muscle tension
- Stimulate tissue and bone healing after injury or surgery
- Increase the vibrational frequency on physical, mental emotional and spiritual levels
Reiki, which is used all over the world, including hospitals and hospices, aids in healing by helping people become energetically balanced physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
The awareness that an unseen energy flows through all living things and directly affects the quality of our health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. When our life force energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress and anxiety, or heal from illness or injury. In these cases, we may not be sleeping well and this makes us more susceptible to illness. But, when our our energy is high, we feel strong, and can more easily maneuver through life and are less likely to get sick. Reiki is a technique that increases a person’s supply of life force energy.
Will I benefit from Reiki if I am in good health?
Yes. If you are in good health already, regularly applied Reiki treatments (about once a month) enhance your ability to respond to unhealthy elements in your environment and help you to handle stress. By promoting the harmonious distribution of energy, Reiki is an excellent form of preventive medicine.
How does Reiki work?
Reiki is administered through the hands of a Reiki practitioner with the client laying fully clothed on a massage table in a quiet room with soft music. A session usually lasts one hour. The Reiki Practitioner places his or her hands lightly on or slightly above the body at certain locations from the head to the feet. Tissue is not manipulated. The practitioner’s hands are simply held at each location for a time as the Reiki energy flows from the practitioner’s hands and into the client’s body and energy field. A Reiki session feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that surrounds and fills the client and includes feelings of relaxation, peace, love and well-being that also promotes healing to take place.
The client may experience the energy as sensations such as heat, tingling or pulsing where the practitioner has placed their hands. Sometimes, the sensations are felt moving through the body. Most people feel very relaxed and peaceful, and many fall asleep during the treatment.
Anyone can benefit from a course of Reiki treatments; all people regardless of age or state of physical, mental or emotional health. Depending upon your situation, multiple treatments may be recommended initially and then regular maintenance sessions may be advised.
What conditions can benefit from Reiki?
Reiki is not specific to any particular type of disease or condition. Because it works on the entire self- mind, body and emotions – it may be successful in all types of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing.
Reiki can help clients to prepare for surgery, which may help boost recovery afterward. Reiki can help clients dealing with:
- Chronic Pain
- Digestive problems
- Parkinson’s disease
- Stress-related diseases
- Psychological illnesses
Reiki energy also allows muscles to relax and increases blood flow to tense areas, which in turn quickens the healing process. Clients report help with stress, anxiety, headaches, insomnia, tension, upset stomach, sprains and many other conditions. Miraculous results are also reported. Reiki also promotes psychological healing, including release of anger, fear, worry, sadness, grief, depression and other unhealthy feelings, and replaces them with self-worth, support, confidence and tranquility.
