What is Reiki?

ReikiReiki is a vibrational healing practice. In Japanese, Reiki is the combination of two words. The first, “Rei” means Universal Intelligence, while “Ki” means a nonphysical energy, commonly known as (Universal Life Force Energy). Reiki helps to bring us to a state of balance on every level – mental, spiritual, physical and emotional. Reiki strengthens our natural ability to heal by encouraging balance. Reiki does not cure symptoms or attack disease; rather it strengthens our natural ability to heal and brings us to a state of greater wholeness.

Reiki came from Japan and is infused with Japanese culture. The treatments are safe and painless, and Reiki requires no belief – only the willingness to experience a noninvasive and holistic treatment.

Pamela Miles, an integrative health consultant and Reiki master offers the following explanation of Reiki: "A Reiki treatment is pleasant, soothing, relaxing, and centering. It can also be energizing, depending on the recipient’s current state. Reiki is always balancing, and follows the need of the receiver, not the intention of the practitioner. Besides immediate stress-reduction and symptomatic relief, there are other subtle and profound effects that unfold over time and accumulate with continued treatment. As we regain balance, superficial symptoms disappear, and the body's innate healing potential is enhanced. Whereas specific results are never promised and vary from person to person, Reiki can be a valuable addition to any treatment plan or well-being program.

Reiki will not interfere with any medical interventions being used, and will provide comfort and relief from their side effects. The effect of Reiki treatment is cumulative, and although treatment is generally relaxing, there are often distinct differences in the experience over repeated sessions."

Reiki Treatment

Lying down fully clothed on a massage table. The treatment will include a full range of hand postions, that cover the area’s from the top of the head to the soles of the feet. You will be asked to roll over onto your stomach and areas on the back of the body will be included. Reiki is generally a laying on of hands healing modality, however, if you are uncomfortable with touch or have any condition that does not allow touch therapy the session can be done with the hands positioned above the body and not touching the skin or area of discomfort. Sessions range from 30 to 60 minutes.

How long is a Reiki Treatment?

Each person is unique and therefore we can not recommend a general amount of treatments but tailor a program custom to the individual. we have however created a system of treatments that are a guide and can be useful for those who are just looking into Reiki.

Rescue: 60 minute sessions over the course of four days. This type of treatment plan is usually recommended for those in a crisis situation that requires healing, emotional or spiritual. Daily treatments are very helpful in the case of chronic health conditions or to support the system while undergoing chemotherapy. They are also beneficial for support during a divorce, loss of a job or death of a loved one.

Refresh: A 30 or 60 minute treatment once a month for prevention, maintenance and well-being. These can be a wonderful addition to any other medical treatment or alternative healing practice, and can also be combined with a facial or acupuncture for a complete restorative treatment.

Revitalize: A 30 or 60 minute session each quarter or season designed to realign the system and focus on any issues that require support. Consultation with information on how to shift in harmony with the seasons for increased positive change. Each session is tailored to the individual and can be combined with flower essence therapy for a more comprehensive treatment.
