The Gift of Reiki
Reiki is an ancient Japanese Healing Art that channels energy through the hands. The energy of Reiki is defined as Universal Life Force, from the Japanese interpretation of REI = Universal and KI = Life Force.
Reiki helps you relax, grow and heal on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Reiki's applications are very diverse, ranging from relaxation and stress reduction to clinical use in the recovery of serious and chronic illnesses.
Reiki is the adding of energy. The Reiki is like a big, clear, powerful river of energy nourishing your personal river of energy. This added energy allows your body and energy to come into balance in its own time and in its own way, enhancing the body's natural healing process. Your energy is being "added to," not manipulated or "moved around" by a practitioner.
As such, Reiki is completely non-invasive and very safe and gentle. And it is not the energy of the practitioner that is being utilized. Receiving Reiki is like "lying in the sun." You don't have to believe in it, or prepare for it – you will simply absorb the Reiki energy, as you would absorb the sun's rays, based on the Principles of Nature. All you have to do is relax and enjoy. Reiki may be experienced on its own or as a wonderful complement to other conventional or alternative therapies. It can be enjoyed by everyone – all ages, belief systems and lifestyles.

What is a Reiki Treatment?
During a treatment, you may sit or lie down, fully clothed, in a comfortable position. One of the beautiful qualities of Reiki is that you, as a recipient, need not be physically touched. The practitioner's hands are gently placed over the major energy centers and organ systems of your body and any other areas that you have identified as needing extra attention. Comfortable cotton or "breathable" clothing, and removal of metallic objects and jewelry, is recommended to allow the greatest flow of, and benefit from, the Reiki.
The average session is 90 minutes, but can range from 30–120 minutes. A series of Reiki sessions, close together, is recommended when beginning treatments, to allow the body to acclimate to, and therefore receive the highest benefits from, the energy. Reiki is cumulative – each treatment builds on the next. Chronic health conditions are also more effectively addressed with regular treatments.
How will you feel during and after a treatment?
Benefits of Reiki.
During, and immediately after, a treatment, you may experience a sense of deep relaxation and/or release. In the days and weeks following treatment, you may notice subtle, and sometimes distinctive, shifts in the physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual aspects of your being. These may include a feeling of rejuvenation and increased vitality, relief from physical pain and tension, more vivid dreams, greater clarity of thought and perception, and a sense of being more "grounded" or "centred."
It is important to remember that the practitioner of Reiki exists as a channel through which Reiki can be more fully directed to you. The will and intention of the Reiki Practitioner is never involved. You guide the energy and do the healing, as the energy of Reiki flows to where it is most needed.
