The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese kanji for universal life-force energy.
When the flow of the "Life-Force Energy" is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur.
Reiki is a holistic, healing method which works by balancing and increasing the energy flow of ki (life force energy) throughout the system. This simple, non-invasive healing system works with the Higher Self of the Receiver to promote health and well being of the entire physical, emotional and psychic body. It is the augmented and balanced energy which enhances and accelerates the body's innate healing ability. The energy provided by the Reiki session allows the body to function at its peak ability.
The energy is directed through the Practitioner's hands either directly on or just above the body. The Practitioner acts as a gathering point and focus of the ki, which is present in all things, and allows for the flow of energy through their body. The client's own body draws off the amount of energy that is required. The simplicity of a Reiki session may raise some skepticism, however, after experiencing it, many clients keep coming back for more of those relaxing feelings.
Reiki is power, light and love.
What Can Reiki Do?
Reiki is excellent for accelerating healing of many physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues. Reiki can:
What happens during a Reiki Session?
The client, fully clothed, lies on the treatment table. The practitioner's hands remain in a stationary position, gently on or slightly above the body (depending on the client's preference) through several positions. The private areas are worked on 4-6" above the body. There is no manipulation of the skin or tissue. Reiki is not massage.
Although the Practitioner draws and focuses the energy for the client, the client's body must accept and use the energy. During the session, the client is encouraged to relax and practice meditation. The Practitioner will assist with a variety of meditation techniques to aid in the energy transfer and balancing. As Buddha said, "With our thoughts we shape our reality." And so, visualization, meditation and positive outlook on the part of the client all aid the Reiki session, increasing its effectiveness and results.
Many individuals report feeling cold, pulsating heat, or a tingling sensation during a session, and most enter a calm, relaxed state. In some, chronic or acute pain can diminish or completely vanish. Sometimes allergies and other infirmities completely disappear. It's different for each person.
It's important to remember that, whatever is troubling us, 'we didn't get this way overnight' and we won't 'recover overnight', either. Reiki is not any more magical than any other modality or allopathic medicine. Healing takes commitment and it takes time... one moment at a time.

Reiki and Other Holistic or Traditional Medicines
Reiki should never be considered a replacement for other modality of treatment. Never discontinue any medications or session plan your medical practitioner or other holistic healer has deemed necessary, unless you first speak with them personally. Reiki energy works in concert with all other forms of therapy. It is a wonderful complement to other treatments. We can all work together to get you feeling healthier, happier and more whole. This is the holistic approach.
The Reiki energy goes to exactly where it is needed so a Reiki Practitioner never needs to diagnose nor prescribe - nor does ethics or law allow them to.
