Reiki is known for:

  • treating the whole person including body, mind, and spirit

  • creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation, inner peace, and wellbeing 

  • being a complementary therapy; working in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques

  • relieving side effects and promoting recovery 

The side effects of regular medical treatments have also been reduced or eliminated. This includes the negative effects of chemotherapy, post operative pain and depression as well as improving the healing rate and reducing the time needed to stay in the hospital. 

Everybody can benefit from Reiki. It is beneficial to the health of women, men, children, animals, plants, water, etc.


How Reiki works 

The life force, Ki, nourishes and

harmonizes our whole being – physical,

mental, emotional, and spiritual through

our energy field (aura),

energy centers (chakras), and energy

pathways (meridians).

Stress, lifestyle, attitudes, environmental

influences or traumatic events negatively

affect our energy field and centers causing

blockages thus disrupting or

dis-harmonizing the flow of Ki. This can

lead to discomforts or illnesses. 

The Reiki energy channeled through the hands of the Reiki practitioner flows through the recipient and clears the affected parts of the energy field and centers, thus allowing a normal healthy flow of Ki to resume and restore balance and harmony to the whole person.   

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to benefit, learn and use Reiki. 











What is Reiki?

Reiki is an exceptionally gentle, non-invasive energy healing therapy for stress reduction that also promotes healing. 

Reiki (pronounced "ray-key") is a Japanese word meaning “universal life energy”, the energy which animates all living things and is found all around us. 


Interesting Fact: The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, which is the Government’s lead agency for scientific research on complementary and alternative medicine, is now sponsoring studies to find out more about Reiki’s effects, and the diseases and conditions for which it may be most helpful.
