Reiki Information


What Is Reiki

Since the mists of time, the act of touching to bring comfort, healing and to relieve pain has been practiced. Energy/Ki/Prana is the creative life force that operates on all levels of the cosmos and is vital to all life. Quantum Physics teaches that all life and energy expressions are interconnected, are interdependent and, therefore influences everything in the Universe. Reiki is a natural healing method that is thousands of years old. Reiki is composed of two Japanese words. Rei, Incoming, Universal, Guided, Spirit or God. Ki, Incoming Life force Energy. Every culture has a name for this life force energy which permeates every living thing. In India it is called Prana. In China it is called Chi, etc. The Universe is described as being spiritual in nature, governed by laws with intelligence present at every point. Rei can also be described as the Higher Intelligence that guides the creation and functioning of the universe. Ki is the non physical energy that animates all living things. Reiki practitioners are channels for this powerful healing energy.

Reiki (Universal Life Force Energy) is a laying on of hands touch therapy which assists the recipients to achieve balance (body, mind & spirit) creating greater mental clarity and focus. Because our immune system is linked directly to cell memory, Reiki revitalizes and activates the body's own immune system to heal itself. Reiki reduces stress and helps to detoxify the body of harmful toxins. It also creates deep relaxation and a total sense of well-being. The quality and quantity of the flow of Ki in our bodies determines our overall state of well-being. Reiki compliments and enhances traditional as well as alternative medicinal modalities. It is safe for everyone including pets.

This ancient healing art was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 20th century. It was introduced to the United States by a Japanese Hawaiian lady named Hawayo Takata. Mrs. Takata opened her first healing clinic in 1937 in Kapaa, Hawaii.

Our Services


What Happens During a Reiki Session

During a Reiki session the recipient lies fully clothed on the massage table. The practitioner channels Reiki while gently laying their hands on or above the energy centers/chakras and or meridians of the recipient's body. This channeled flow of Ki creates a deep sense of relaxation while activating the recipient's immune system that affects the healing process. Recipients often experience physical,emotional and spiritual release during a treatment because Reiki works on the physical,emotional and spiritual levels, breaking through the barriers of past long held memories, behavior patterns that can cause blockages,physical pain,depression,fear,mental confusion, etc.
