Reiki is an ancient form of hands-on energy healing, with its origins in India and the East dating back thousands of years to the time before Christ and Buddha. Reiki consists of two words. Ray, which means universal or spiritual consciousness and Ki. Ki is the energy current that runs through our bodies, providing us with the circulation, nutrients, and minerals needed to be whole. It is also known as Chi by the Chinese and Prana in Indian culture. In traditional Chinese medicine, Chi was thought to be the life force and ultimate measure of one’s vitality. The proper movement of both Ki and blood through the body creates health and harmony in the human being. With the aid of Kirlian photography, we are able to see this energy that encompasses all living things. Many successful disciplines such as Reiki, Tai Chi, Feng Shui, meditation, yoga and acupuncture have been developed to control and greatly enhance the flow of this energy in and around the body. 

During Reiki treatment, the practitioner channels universal life energy through their hands to the client’s body. The client lies fully clothed on the Reiki table, which is the same as a massage table. Reiki is a gentle touch practice that does not involve muscle manipulation. The treatment balances the body’s energy field and energy centers. This balance puts the body in its optimal state and promotes the body’s healing. Reiki works on all levels of the mind, body and spirit by stimulating a person’s natural healing abilities. Reiki helps to clear the blocked emotional and physical elements that lead to illness and disease. Adults, children and animals can safely receive Reiki alongside conventional healthcare. Reiki complements any healthcare or wellness routine.
