Reiki is a hands on Japanese healing art. In the late 1800’s Mikao Usui developed reiki, deriving the term from the Japanese words ‘rei’ meaning “universal,” and ‘ki’ which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. It was from his teachings that Reiki made its way to North America. Reiki is not a religion or a structured set of beliefs to be followed.
Reiki is a healing art that can bring relaxation, relief from discomfort, reduce stress and anxiety. This is done through gentle touch improving the flow and balance of energy to support healing and wellbeing mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
A Reiki treatment is unique to each person and unique to each circumstance. One session will likely never be like a previous one. It may feel relaxing, comforting, energizing, stimulating or it may feel “neutral’ as this is also a feeling. Reiki works with the individual to meet their personal needs.
