Reiki is a system of natural healing that was developed in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki involves the channeling of energy from practitioner to recipient in order to enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. It is a holistic, natural, hands-on energy healing system that has profound effects on the body, mind and spirit. Reiki brings us directly into contact with the creative intelligence and the vital energy of the universe.
Reiki is a Japanese word that means "Universal Life Force Energy." It is translated from two words, Rei, which means "Universal" or "Essence of Creation," and Ki, which means "Life Energy" or "Life Force." The two characters, when joined, express the coming together of divine life force, the unification of body and soul.
Life Force Energy exists in our bodies and moves through our aura or energy field, the chakras or energy centers, and the pathways called meridians. When the energy becomes blocked or disrupted in any of these areas, it can result in illness. Likewise, the major organs of the body can be affected when there are blockages or imbalances in the energy flow.
When Reiki is allowed to flow freely through the organs and tissues, it opens blocked passages, reactivates energy centers and gives balance to the Ki of the entire body, restoring health and wholeness. Reiki enhances the body's natural ability to heal itself.
The ability to use and administer Reiki is passed to the student in the form of an "attunement" given by a Reiki Master. This attunement allows the student to access the Reiki Life Force Energy.
Learning Reiki is a simple process and is a wonderful gift to give yourself. As a Reiki practitioner, you will find an inner peace and harmony that will carry forward into your every day life. You will discover your ability to be a channel for Universal Love and Peace.

Reiki Master/Teacher training gives the practitioner the tools necessary to become a Reiki Teacher and to administer the Reiki Attunements.
A Reiki treatment is a simple, non-intrusive, yet powerful process. The Reiki practitioner channels the Reiki healing energy to the client by gently placing the hands in key position on the body. The client is fully clothed during the treatment.
The client typically experiences a feeling of complete relaxation and inner peace. Some individuals feel tingling or a warm sensation. Reiki helps reduce anxiety, pain and stress and increases energy within the body.
While Reiki is not a substitute for treatments prescribed by a doctor, it does enhance the body's ability to heal itself. It therefore complements all other treatments.
