What is Reiki?

March 30, 2017

With Reiki's ever-increasing popularity, there is also an ever-increasing amount of information online about this incredible healing modality so I won't take up too much time here but I do want to give you a brief explanation of Reiki and what to expect in a session with me.


Pronounced RAY-KEY, it is an energy healing modality that was founded by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan. The word Reiki is a Japanese term meaning "spiritually guided life force energy". Reiki is not a religion and requires no particular beliefs for it to work. By the laying on of hands, the Reiki practitioner channels this spiritually guided life force energy to the client for a relaxing and peaceful feeling that puts your body, mind and spirit at ease and ready to heal. While Reiki is becoming widely accepted in institutional settings such as hospitals and hospices, it's not just for physical or medical conditions. It is also a remarkable complementary healing system emotionally, mentally, and spiritually as part of your personal wellness and healing program for self-awareness and transformation.


So what should you expect when you show up for your Reiki session? Just like when you go to the doctor, I will have you fill out a brief client sheet for some basic information and we'll have a brief discussion about why you have sought out Reiki. Once that is done, it will be time for you to hop up on the table. Generally, Reiki is administered to the client while lying on a massage table, usually on your back, but accommodations can be made for those that find that uncomfortable. The client remains fully clothed and covered with a blanket if desired for comfort. After establishing permission to touch, I will start the session at your head, work my way down your body laying my hands in different positions on your body, all the way down to your feet or I may just go straight to wherever on your body I am guided by intuition. If you are not comfortable with physical touch, that's okay! I can still administer Reiki by holding my hands about 6 inches above your body to work in your auric field. It will be just as effective. And because Reiki is spiritually guided, it knows where it is needed and where to go in your body! You may experience different sensations as the session is conducted, such as warmth, tingling, coolness, or even seeing different colors in your mind's eye, but mostly people report the deep sense of peace and relaxation they feel. Everyone experiences Reiki a little differently though so it is good to keep an open mind. The session is usually ended by beaming healing energy to your whole body to seal what was done. 


Whether you're just looking to treat yourself or you're looking for a complementary tool for your healing program, Reiki is always a valuable and effective therapy that will leave you feeling balanced and peaceful!
