What is Reiki ?

Reiki is a natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that anyone can benefit from. It has been effective in the healing of many adverse health conditions concluding in positive affects.  It works in conjunction with all other medical and therapeutic techniques to relieve side affects and promote recovery.

A treatment has been referred to as the healing warmth of a blanket, integrated by the simplistic approach of light, gentle touch without manipulation or intrusion to a person’s body.

Reiki treats the whole person; body and mind, which then creates a space of relaxation, calm, sense of well being, and renewed energy.

Reiki is a 3000-year-old healing modality originating from India, migrating to China and onward to Japan being rediscovered in the 1800’s by Dr. Mikao Usui, now being utilized universally. Reiki is also referred to and recognized as Chi, or life force energy in chinese medicine.
