About Reiki Therapy

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key), is an ancient form of touch therapy. It works in a very similar way as acupuncture, in that it brings the body into balance by removing blocked 'chi' or 'energy', but without the use of needles. It is non-invasive and there are no side effects. Reiki induces a natural state of relaxation. The body will heal itself, but only when the body is completely relaxed. Reiki heals on the physical, mental and emotional levels.

It is said that Reiki originated in India 5,000 years ago, and shortly after it spread to Tibet. It wasn't until Dr. Usui of Japan rediscovered it in the early 19th century that Reiki found its way to the modern world. I am a certified Reiki Master and practice Reiki under the Usui system of healing.

A Reiki treatment takes about an hour to complete. The client stays fully clothed and the practitioner places their hands on them in a specific sequence. The therapistsí hands remain still during treatment and emanate heat, a calm, soothing feeling. The sensation that Reiki produces is subtle but its effect penetrates deeply, thus accelerating and assisting in the healing process.

When our body experiences stress, it may take a long time before disease or pain result. Just the same, it may take a while for the body to achieve the necessary level of relaxation to completely heal. Therefore, it may take more than one session to achieve your goal.
