​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Reiki is an ancient wellness art known for relaxation, reduction of pain and an intuitive opening of the mind, heart and spirit.  Reiki can be traced to Egypt, Sudan and Japan.  The restorative art was re-discovered in Japan during the 1800's by Mikao Usui.  The touch is gentle or there is the option of scanning with hands slightly above the body.  Clothing does not have to be removed.  Participants can lay down on a massage table or sit in a chair. ​ Reiki relieves energy blockages from the source of stress and pain.  Reiki operates as a form of relaxation.  The relaxation leads to a feeling of a meditation massage with direct or indirect touch.  Reiki blends within the mind, body and spirit creating a sense of inner peace, emotional and physical safety.  For many people, relaxation can be a powerful pain reliever. This form of relaxation supports healing and well being which can also reduce/manage pain and swelling.


​Most indigenous cultures all over the world continue to maintain their restorative traditions which pay homage to energy connections.  Reiki is spiritual in nature, as it is focused on compassion and peace, however, it is not a religion.  Reiki can open and develop healthy outcomes providing transitional support for a better quality of life. Reiki can also be performed on a person in the presence of others who will enjoy the peaceful environment it creates.  Reiki can be used within a group to create a Circle of peace.

Reiki complements other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.  Reiki practitioners work as part of a healing team in a hospital, clinic or privately for patients who are in care.  Reiki practitioners work as part of stress management services within corporate and non profit organizations, social service and senior centers.  Overall, Reiki is a practice designed to help people live their life (universal energy) to its fullest.
