simbolo reiki ReikiWhen I tell people that I am a Reiki practitioner, I often hear “I have never heard of that. What is it?”. 

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy.” So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

The technique for Reiki was developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui, which has since been adapted by many teachers of varying traditions. It is a very specific form of energy healing, in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body, as in “laying on of hands.” Reiki can also be done “long-distance,” as a form of prayer. It is not a religion, nor does it require that a person believe in any particular deity or dogma, thus making it ideal for anyone who wishes to experience relaxation and stress reduction.

In a Reiki session, I focus my intent to create deep relaxation, to help speed healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms you may be experiencing. Reiki does not replace other therapies, but instead complements them. This is why I incorporate it in the massages I perform if requested. The Reiki energy is natural and positive, so there are no drug side effects or invasive procedures required to feel relaxation and to promote balance and healing.
