Reiki is a type of holistic energy healing that channels the essential soul energy that flows through all living things. It promotes relaxation and stress reduction. Reiki supports one’s own ability to heal, physically, emotionally, or spiritually.

Reiki History

Reiki was discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese minister, and teacher, in the 1920s. A student asked him what made it possible for Jesus to be able to heal with his hands. Usui had no idea, so he traveled to Mt. Kurama Yama to fast and meditate in order to find the answer. After a series of miracles over the course of 21 days, he discovered the Reiki symbols we use today. Before he died, Master Usui passed Reiki to Dr. Chujiro Hayashi who further organized the system. And before Master Hayashi left the Earth, he passed the Reiki knowledge to Mrs. Hawayo Takata who bought the knowledge to Hawaii. Reiki continues to spread throughout the world.

Despite its Japanese origin, Reiki is available to all cultures and one need not believe in any particular faith or religion.

Reiki honors all beings.

‘Rei’ means intelligence or spiritual consciousness and ‘Ki’ means life force energy.  Although the energy is guided by the practitioner, Reiki knows exactly where it needs to go within your energy body. Reiki is its own medicine and gives you exactly what you need to heal. It cannot harm and is always beneficial.

Reiki is not bound by space or time, therefore, it can be sent without the practitioner and recipient being in the same room. One must simply be open and willing to receive the energy.

What is a Reiki session like?

A Reiki session begins with a conversation about the intention for the session. We start by getting clear on what it is we want to create, call in or release.

Since Reiki is given via touch by laying hands directly on the body or without touch by hovering hands, I’ll ask which you prefer before we begin.

During a session, clients lay fully clothed on a massage table with soft music or ambient sound playing. Relaxation sets in pretty quickly and it’s common for some to fall asleep. Some clients feel sensations like warmth, cold, tingles, or nothing at all. It varies per client and per session. Reiki is a wonderful way to practice trust and surrender. The energy knows exactly what you need. The healing continues throughout the day or weeks as needed.

Some ways Reiki can help:

  • support navigating life changes and transitions
  • anxiety, stress and pain relief
  • self-healing & immunity support
  • increase energy & vitality
  • grief and loss support
  • autoimmune diseases
  • support breaking habits and addictions
  • mental clarity
  • improve sleep 
  • and many more!

Reiki is it’s own medicine and can show up in one’s life in ways that are unique to the individual.

The best way to understand Reiki is through experience!
