What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced ray – key) is a Japanese holistic, non-invasive deep relaxation treatment.  The effect of this treatment, that involves light touch or no touch, is to reduce stress, pain and tension while bringing a person’s system back into balance on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Reiki treatments stimulate the body’s own innate wisdom to promote self healing and recovery. It facilitates self-awareness and supports building your resiliency.

Commonly referred to as energy medicine, Reiki is also know as a type complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Reiki works in conjunction with conventional medical treatments with no known contraindications.

Reiki is being administered with positive results in Hospitals, Cancer Centers, VA Centers, and Hospice across the United States, Canada and the UK. Patients who have received Reiki report faster healing with less pain, accelerated recovery from surgery, improved mental attitude, reduced negative effects of medication, and reduced anxiety during pregnancy.

Treatment sessions are usually one hour long


You lie fully clothed on a table or sit in a chair


Reiki is administered through light hand placements on or just above the client’s body

  • Sessions are typically scheduled once a week or every 2 weeks. Each session is cumulative in promoting the body’s natural ability to heal. Healing occurs in layers over time.

  • No two sessions are alike. Clients may feel warmth or cooling in specific areas, tingling or twitching sensations of releasing energetic congestion, seeing colors, a sense of being comforted or feeling lighter. Some clients notice enhanced intuition and at times have spiritual experiences.

  • After your Reiki session, drink plenty of water to wash away toxins released during the session.

  • Let your body do whatever it needs and allow yourself quiet time or return to your life’s activities with a sense of less stress and increased energy.  Notice the changes you feel - you are the best judge of what your body needs!
