Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice.

It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion.

It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy.

Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things.

Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others.

It is believed that a person’s “ki” (aka Chi) or energy, should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.

A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional.

A session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness.

“Mikao Usui” is credited with rediscovering the root system of body energy now called Reiki.   His tradition and methods were passed through several grandmasters of Reiki.

Today, Reiki takes many forms, however, The Usui System of Natural Healing is still the form most widely practiced. Practitioners and Master Teachers are trained through an initiation process where Masters pass on their knowledge and expertise to their students.

If you are interested in a healing session or in learning the system you can go online and discover many avenues for both.
