What is Reiki?


The Japanese word Reiki means:



It is a system that promotes healing on many levels and are techniques for spiritual development to support you in finding balance within your life.

  • People use and learn Reiki to promote overall health and well-being.
  • Reiki is used by people who are seeking relief from disease-related symptoms and as an alternative to the side effects of conventional medical treatments.
  • Reiki has historically been practiced as a form of self-care.

Reiki is an energy medicine and healing practice that originated in Japan. Practitioners place their hands lightly on or just above the person receiving treatment, with the goal of facilitating the person's own healing response. In the United States, Reiki is part of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).

The Essence of Reiki

"Such as a flower is beautiful and gives off a pleasing aroma, it at it's true essence stirs the inner beingness of a person. There are many kinds flowers: roses, sunflowers, orchids and daisies. Stay true to the essence of the flower that is unpretentious and simple - that it, everything inside us and around us is sacred spiritual energy - flawless, beautiful and innocent. Instead of emulating the physical beauty of the flower with your mind, instead sink into the essence of how the flower makes you feel and be that for others. We can only experience it with an open mind and open heart to understand it's true nature."
