The entire universe & your body is made up of energy.

  • Reiki is an Energy Healing Practice in which life-force energy is transferred from the Reiki Practitioner’s hands into the recipient with gentle hand placements on or slightly above the body.

  • This energy transfer induces a state of extreme relaxation & stress reduction which activates your own body’s ability to self-heal your physical & emotional self.

  • Why do we need this? Because long-term blockages of energy pathways (also known as chakras & meridians) can cause pain & illnesses. Reiki’s goal is to strengthen the flow of energy through these blocked pathways, decreasing pain & increasing your body’s natural ability to fight illness & promote self-healing.

  • Reiki stimulates energy to move through the body.       It does not direct or manipulate energy. Reiki simply facilitates an open pathway for free energy flow.

  • Reiki complements conventional & holistic medicine but is never intended to postpone or replace any medical care.

  • Who can benefit from reiki?

    • Everyone of all ages & stages of life from pregnancy through end of life.

    • All animals.

    • Even plants.


  • Reiki treats imbalances & will bring about a unique response in each individual.

    • Every reiki session is different. Sometimes the experience is subtle and other times, profound.

    • Reiki works whether you feel it or not. Reiki can flow slowly or rapidly, smoothly or erratically.

    • You may feel heat or coolness, pins & needle tingling, vibrational buzzing, electrical sparks, numbness, throbbing, itchiness, sleepiness.

  • Reiki energy is intelligent and always supports the recipient in exactly what is needed at that moment in time.

  • Is there any preparation needed prior to a reiki treatment?

    • No, although being well hydrated and not consuming excessive caffeinated beverages is recommended.

    • Loose fitting clothing is recommended for comfort. The only clothing removed are shoes, belts and large metal jewelry. Reiki energy is absorbed by metal.

  • Are there any restrictions after a reiki treatment?

    • No. Drinking an increased amount of water is recommended to assist your body with any detoxification effects of the session. Water also acts as a conductor of enhanced energy frequencies now circulating in your body’s energy system.

  • Are there any side effects?   No.                                                       

    • Some individuals are more sensitive to energy than others and may experience a temporary ‘healing crisis’ when energy is shifting throughout the body & rebalancing, triggering a cleansing and detoxifying process. Symptoms may include: pains & aches; increased perspiration; frequent urination, diarrhea or constipation; crying, etc. Although these symptoms may last for a few days, they are followed by an increased sense of energy & well-being.

  • What is the difference between reiki and massage?

    • Massage involves manipulation of muscles & surrounding tissues whereas reiki works with specific energy channels & subtle energy fields with or without light touch. Reiki heals the body & mind as one.

  • What is the difference between reiki & acupuncture?

    • Both reiki & acupuncture address root causes, not symptoms. Both work with energy channels.  In acupuncture, specific healing needs are identified and the recipient receives passive treatment. In reiki, the power to heal rests with the recipient.
