Reiki is an energetic healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”.

In short: Reiki is the Universal Life Energy that flows through ALL living things

How does Reiki work?

Your body is one amazing machine. Not only does it automatically take care of all your breathing, circulation, digestion and other vital processes without you even lifting a finger, but it has the phenomenal ability to bounce back and heal itself when faced with certain amounts of stress.

Most of the time, at least.

There may come a time in your life when your body has simply had enough. Perhaps you’ve been subjected to a constant barrage of ongoing stress, experienced a particularly sudden and intensely stressful situation or have come to accept negative beliefs, patterns and thoughts that are bogging down your entire being. In such cases, the body’s self-regulating mechanisms (your chakras, which work nonstop trying to keep you balanced ) can no longer do their jobs, resulting in a decline in the health of your body, mind and soul.

You may become irritated or angry and prone to outbursts; suffer from headaches, stomach aches, muscle tension and pain; feel anxious, restless and depressed; or even start overeating, under-eating or reaching for alcohol or drugs for relief. And let’s not even talk about erratic sleeping patterns…

A Reiki session assists the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all these levels – physical, mental, and emotional. A Reiki Practitioner doesn’t heal you but facilitates and activates your body’s own healing ability. The Reiki practitioner channels Universal Energy into your energy field and body and with that “jumpstarts” your system into self-healing mode.
