The gentle art of Reiki draws on universal life energy to benefit people of any age and in any state of health. It offers comfort, nurture, and support for the good health and balance of your mind, body and emotions. Reiki is Japanese; meaning universal life energy. It is a non-intrusive method of hands-on healing that taps into the energy, or also known in Japan as Ki, Chi in China and Piana in India. Reiki is not a massage, hypnosis, or a tool for diagnosing illness. Reiki is a technique that addresses both chronic and acute conditions, gently and powerfully promoting balance among all the body’s systems and the normal regenerative processes of the body and mind.

What is Reiki treatment like?

You will normally lie on a table fully clothed however, RMTs who practice Reiki often intersperse Reiki and Massage Therapy. Your Reiki practitioner will explain everything to you prior to your treatment. Reiki practitioners use little or no pressure, and no oil is used. Being still and focused, the practitioner will simply place a hand on or above your head, shoulders, back, chest, stomach and limbs. The teachings say that the energy will flow through the practitioner, to you. You will receive the amount of energy you need to bring your mind and body into balance. The effects of Reiki vary from person to person, however, most people experience deep relaxation.
