  Holistic Energy Healing Therapy  for your Spirit, Body, Mind & Soul

ORIGINS OF REIKI

Reiki is believed to have been rediscovered in Japan in 1922 by Mikao Usui and was brought to the West in 1937 by Hawayo Takata. The Usui system is the modality mostly practiced worldwide and is trained through an initiation process where Masters pass on their knowledge and expertise to students on different levels.


The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-Kee) comes from the Japanese word "Rei" which means Universal Life and "Ki" which means Energy. This energy is the power that acts and lives in all created matter whether organic or inorganic; people, animals, plants and rocks. Christians call this energy God, Buddhists call it Buddha, Ki is analogous to Chi in Chinese medicine, Prana in Hindu and Light in Christianity.

WHAT IS REIKI?

Reiki is a therapy to heal one's Body, Mind & Soul on a physical & spiritual level. Reiki healing promotes stress reduction and relaxation, administered by a Reiki healer using life energy force to help you heal yourself. The awareness that an unseen energy flows through all living things and directly affects the quality of a person's health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. When your life energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress, you may not sleep well, and you're more susceptible to illness. When your life energy is strong, you feel strong, you are in a positive state of mind  and you can more easily deal with stress, and are less likely to get sick. Reiki is a technique that increases a person's supply of life energy. In the science world they refer to this energy as biofield energy.


WHAT IS HOLY FIRE REIKI

Even though the word Holy is in the name Holy Fire it is not intended to take on any religious meaning. Holy Fire is a spiritual energy that purifies, heals and empowers guidance.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A SESSION

A complete Reiki session is offered to a fully clothed recipient who is lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably in a chair. It is offered through a light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner's hands placed and held on a series of locations from the head all the way down to the feet avoiding any private areas. The placement of hands is never intrusive or inappropriate. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and soul, creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.


IS REIKI A RELIGION?

Reiki is not a Religion, in fact as the popularity of Reiki grows, many Christians are becoming interested in the healing art and have begun to practice it. They have found that Reiki is a useful technique that helps them express compassion toward others and relieve suffereing. At the same time, some say it creates a closer connection for them to God. Because Reiki is a laying of hands healing technique similar to what Jesus practiced, it is especially appealing.

REIKI IN HOSPITALS

Reiki is becoming increasingly popular with the medical community, with over 800 hospitals across the U.S. offering Reiki as a standard part of hospital care. A research study at Hartford Hospital, Connecticut indicates that Reiki improved patient sleep by 86 percent, reduced pain by 78 percent, and reduced anxiety during pregnancy by 94 percent. In addition, nurses report that Reiki helps patients heal faster with less pain, reduces stress and improves mental attitude, improves appetite, and reduces the negative side effects of chemotherapy, radiation and other medical procedures. Reiki also is given to staff (nurses & doctors) to help with stress, keeping them calm and focused.

CAN REIKI HELP THE TERMINAL ILL & ELDERLY PATIENT?

Yes, Reiki is ideal for people or animals who are in the terminal stage of an illness or life. Reiki helps prepare the person for their passing. It helps them adjust and not feel scared of the unknown. Clients whom I have worked on have said that it has calmed them in ways they cannot explain and let them feel at peace with their life, letting go of guilt, anger and other emotions that seem to come up at this late stage in their lives.
