Essentially, it is an energy transfer. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. It is sometimes administered by "laying on of hands" and is based on the idea that life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. I do not personally choose to practice reiki in a hands-on method. Instead my hands transfer this energy to you while 6 inches or so away from your body. It allows me, personally, to feel your energy body better and gauge where you might have blockages or where energy is needed most.
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."
What does it feel like?
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many report feeling euphoric and peaceful afterwards. It is not uncommon for me to receive messages or images for you from spirit. I always ask permission from you before I give this information.
Is Reiki right for me?
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.
