What is Reiki? Reiki(pronounced ray-key), which means "Spiritually guided life-force energy", is a Japanese spiritual practice that aids the body in releasing stress and tension and creates deep relaxation. When we calm our minds, our bodies can heal. Reiki is a spiritual practice and natural healing method that helps to remind you of your own "Bright Light" or Divinity. The Usui Reiki system, or Usui Reiki Ryoho, was created in Japan by a man named Mikao Usui over 90 years ago and years later brought to the western world by Hawayo Takata. Usui brought together a system of healing that includes meditation, positive affirmations (in the form of the Reiki Precepts), Reiki symbols, hands-on healing for self and others, and Reiju or as it is known in the west, Reiki attunement. Reiki is simple, yet powerful.
Reiki is a lifestyle, a way of life and a path to enlightenment. Reiki calms the mind, decreases stress and heals the body, mind and spirit. With the simple practice of Reiki, we place our well-being into our own hands; healing ourselves, our families, the planet, and creating vibrant health, peace, love and joy in every area of our lives. When we embrace the energy of Reiki, it helps us to achieve this and so much more. Allow your Reiki practice to help you to become the best you.

Part of the practice of "Reiki" is what is most people know of a hands-on-healing or a light touch Reiki session. During a Reiki session the client lies in a relaxed manner, fully clothed on a massage table or sitting comfortably in a chair. The client then draws the energy that is required to bring balance to their body through the Reiki practitioner. It has been said that "Reiki feels like a warm gentle sunshine which flows through you, surrounds you and comforts you." It promotes healing at the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels of the body by helping to restore balance and relieving the physical and emotional effects of unreleased stress. The Reiki practitioner acts as a channel for the healing to occur.
A Reiki session or treatment is safe and gentle; it incorporates a series of hand positions either directly on, or just above the body. During a Reiki session you may feel a sense of inner peace, calmness and deep relaxation. Common physical sensations that one experiences during a Reiki session include: heat, tingling vibrations, gentle cool breeze and movement of energy throughout the body. Generally people relax so deeply, that they fall into a meditative state, or even asleep. It is in this state, that deep levels of healing can occur --so the more frequently one experiences Reiki, the more effective it is, and the stronger the healing effects.
Reiki sessions can help to accelerate healing, relieve stress, facilitate the body in releasing toxins, release energy blockages and also help to create overall balance within the body. Reiki is not a substitute for medical treatment, however it supports any medical or supplemental healing methods a person may be using; it is safe during pregnancy and throughout all stages of life. Its use is also becoming more popular in hospitals in the United States and is being encouraged by many doctors in the medical community, such as Dr. Mehmet Oz. Thanks to their support and encouragement, Reiki treatments are currently being used in over 800 hospitals in the US as part of the standard hospital care. Reiki is easy for all ages to learn (even children) and classes of all levels are held regularly. Try a Reiki session, join a Reiki level 1 class or come to a Reiki share today!
"Even though Reiki does not presume any specific philosophy or religion, it did grow out of the spirit of Japanese culture and language." Frank Arjava Petter, This is Reiki.
