What is Reiki?

Originating in Japan, Reiki is a healing system of energy work that addresses energetic imbalances with the body and spirit. Thought forms, belief systems, traumatic experiences, and formative life events can all get stuck in a person's energetic field, leading to health and emotional issues. Clearing these blockages can help you break free of the repeating cycles of fear, trauma, and negative belief systems. 

How does it work?

The Reiki practitioner uses hands on or hands above light touch over your body’s energy centers (chakras). It is common to feel warmth, cold, tingling or subtle pulsations coming from the practitioner’s hands. Some people have emotional releases during a treatment; others drift off to sleep or have visions. After a treatment, people generally feel a sense of peace and contentment, greater mental clarity, relief from pain and a more positive, balanced outlook.

Who would benefit?

Reiki is also an excellent adjunctive therapy to medications, surgery, chemotherapy and psychotherapy. It is beneficial during times of transition, such as moving residence, changing jobs or ending a relationship or in cases of stubborn medical issues, or those stemming from mental or emotional imbalance.
