About Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese word that translates as universal life energy. It  describes the common energy found in all life. This natural healing art involves the body-mind connection and movement toward wholeness.

Dr. Mikao Usui  brought Reiki to early 20th century Japan.  There is an inscription on his gravestone that describes the body-mind-spirit interplay: “The Reiki method is not only for curing illness, its true purpose is to correct the heart-mind, keep the body fit and lead a happy life using the spiritual capabilities human beings were endowed with since birth.”

Reiki is classified as a biofield therapy by the National Institute of health and is being utilized in hospitals, hospices and other medical settings throughout the country.

TREATMENT DESCRIPTION:

Reiki is administered by gentle placement of hands in very specific positions covering the head, torso, and back. Additional positions are used for specific symptomatic needs. The patient reclines on a massage table, bed or chair and is fully clothed.

A state of deep relaxation is very commonly reported with Reiki treatments. Research studies have demonstrated this with measurements of slowed heart, pulse and respiration rates.
