Beginning with a mother’s calming hand, touch on a crying child is an instinctive means of relieving pain, and one that we use throughout our lives. Reiki is a gentle method of hands-on healing for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.
The Japanese word “Reiki” is made up of two words – REI is the universal life energy, while KI is the vital energy life force. Originating in ancient Tibet thousands of years ago, Reiki was rediscovered in the mid-1800’s by Dr. Mikao Usui of Japan. Though Reiki techniques appear simple, the effects can feel profound.
Reiki can accelerate the healing process for those who are ill, under medical treatment, and/or in the recovery stages. Reiki may not cure your ailment, but will compliment any modalities or medications that you are currently using by offering “side benefits” rather than “side effects.”
If your health is already well maintained, experiencing a Reiki treatment will leave you feeling more peaceful and relaxed. Unlike massage, the client is fully clothed during treatment. The experience is safe for everyone, including babies, children, elders, and pregnant women.
