It has been termed as “universal love shared through the hands”. It is intelligent energy which supports your highest good. It is non-religion based. Reiki is scientifically proven in medical and alternative health care studies to reduce pain, improve memory and increase clear thinking, and speed up post-surgery recovery. “Rei” means divine and “Ki” means life force, which combines to universal or divine life force energy. It is an ancient healing practice defined as Reiki by Dr. Usui in the early 1900’s.
How does it work?
This energy is inside everything and everyone. The practitioner, by receiving the Reiki symbols and attunements from a Reiki Master, is a clear channel through which Reiki flows at will. People are energetically depleted and unbalanced by stress and anxiety, toxic relationships, family obligations, loss of loved ones, trauma, war, pollution and lack of life purpose, this leads to illness. The practitioner provides a safe, calm and nurturing environment to channel the restoring and healing energy of Reiki to you which creates harmony within.

What to expect from your session?
The recipient will remain clothed and lay down on a massage table, while the practitioner’s hands may gently rest on various areas of the body or hover slightly above it. Reiki effectiveness is increased when the recipient has a desire for the change and healing to occur with an equal exchange of energy.
Reiki is perceived by each individual differently. There may be sensations of tingling, heat or waves of cold, or no perceptual sensations at all, either way Reiki is flowing where the person needs it most. Depleted energy is re-balanced on a physical, emotion and mental level which result in a general sense of well-being.
