What is Reiki?

Reiki is one of the most widely known forms of energy healing. This transformational energy technique is practiced by millions of people around the world to promote optimal energy flow for overall health and well-being.  


Reiki and other vibrational healing modalities work on the principal that we are made of energy, and that health is optimized when the energy in our body flows properly and is in balance. Energy work is holistic in nature; when we stimulate our subtle energy, we also affect our body, mind, heart, and soul. Treatment is focused on refining and strengthening the bio field, for as we shift our energy patterns, we nourish wellness from within and experience benefits throughout our lives.

Hands-On Healing Technique

Reiki is a specialized form of laying on of the hands, an early healing art that is the simplest form, and an origin, of energy healing. Hands-on healing is no doubt rooted in the instinctual reaction we have of soothing ourselves: whenever we are wounded or become ill, we reach to the place of pain with our hands to stream healing energy through our body.

Where does Reiki come from?

Reiki was developed in Japan in the late 1880s. Its roots may be traced back thousands of years ago to Tibetan Zen Buddhism, and is based on the traditional secret methods practiced by monks for healing. Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese physician, re-discovered this ancient technique and refined it for modern use.


What does Reiki mean?

To further understand the nature of Reiki, let's look at the meaning of the word. Reiki, pronounced 'Ray-Key', is a Japanese word composed of the two root words 'Rei' and 'Ki'. These words may be translated as follows:

'Rei' ~ universal source energy, of the eternal wisdom of spirit

'Ki' ~ the Japanese word for life force energy, the energy that animates all living beings

'Reiki' may be loosely defined as spiritually guided life force energy, or simply, universal healing energy.  


Dr. Mikao Usui brought Reiki to the modern world.


How does Reiki work?

Reiki promotes optimal health and wellness by stimulating our bio energy flow with universal healing energy, most often facilitated by light touch, to help our energy field restore itself. Reiki supports our overall vibrancy by connecting us with the flow of healing source energy, which in turn activates our own body's inherent powers of rejuvenation.  


Connecting with source energy is deeply calming, and induces a relaxation response in our body. Reiki energy stimulates our life force to restore its proper flow through our body and energy system, helping the body to heal itself naturally, clearing any blocks along its path. In this space, we may unwind and allow healing to occur through a process of release, balance, and alignment.  We are replenished and strengthened, and our overall energy is uplifted with the healing force of universal love and light.

Reiki provides a natural solution to many conditions, and may be used to offset side effects of traditional Western medical medications and enhance treatments you may be receiving. Reiki is increasingly used in conjunction with conventional medical care internationally, in hospital settings and otherwise, as it provides excellent support to patients before and after medical treatments.


Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy. 

The best way to understand Reiki is to experience it for yourself.
