Reiki is hands-on natural healing using the universal life force energy. The term comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things. It is a spiritual touch practice based on the notion that human hands can redirect one's “life force energy” for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.***
Reiki is an abundant and gentle spiritual energy that is not tied to any specific religion or nationality and is beneficial to everyone. It is a meditative practice that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety, and promotes a positive mental state through gentle touch. Reiki self-treatment is a way to benefit from the therapy in your own home.
Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being. This energy opens and unblocks the chakras creating better energy flow and alignment within your body supporting your bodies own natural healing capabilities. Reiki is a form of Quantum Healing, so it is able to travel through time and space, and can even be sent to the future and the past to help healing throughout your life.
I am attuned to Kundalini Reiki Master Level and Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Level 2, and am working towards attaining my master level this summer. I am offering mobile (in your home) sessions and distant healing sessions at this time.
Reiki is a very relaxing and meditative experience. After a safe space is cleansed and prepared for the healing session and I am myself grounded and open to channel energy, the receiver of Reiki lies on a massage table or on the floor as comfortably as possible face up. Using symbols and hand positions over your body, I direct the energy to flow through to where you need it the most. Often images also come through to help with the direction of energy and any messages that also wish to be noticed. I start at your feet to ground you for the session and then work from your crown down to your feet again before you turn over onto your back and I repeat the process on your back body. For most of the body, my hands will be on aside from sensitive and private areas, where I will keep my hands a few inches above your body. The session ends again with grounding you back to your body and going over what came through if you wish to know and what you felt during the session. The energy continues to work with you throughout the day and days ahead. Sometimes the shifts are subtle and sometimes they are more profound. The energy always works as is needed at the time.
May only what is of the highest and best use for ones body, mind, and soul transcend during our healing sessions.
"Usui Reiki is the most common form of Reiki that people practice today. Reiki was developed by Dr. Mikao Usui who was born in Japan to a wealthy Buddhist family in 1865.
Growing up, he always had an interest in medicine, psychology and theology. He wanted to find a method for healing that would be available for anyone with no ties to any religious beliefs. He studied all different types of healing systems before becoming a priest/monk living at a monastery.
Sometime during his years of training in the monastery, Dr. Usui attended his own training rediscovery course in a cave on Mount Kurama (International Association of Reiki Professionals). He meditated, prayed, and fasted for 21 days, until a life changing event happened. Usui saw the Sanskrit symbols that would help him develop a system of healing. It is also said, on the morning of the 21st day he was about to give up and leave, then a powerful spiritual energy came down into the top of his head and he became enlightened.
Usui created the first healing clinic for Reiki in Kyoto. The first school for Reiki was established in 1922. Dr. Usui trained several Reiki masters before he died. Dr. Chujiro Hayashi was one of them, who is known for creating more hand positions and improving the attunement process.
Reiki Comes to America
Dr. Hayashi trained more Reiki Masters, after improving Reiki, including Hawayo Takata a Japanese-American woman. She had received Reiki healing from Dr. Hayashi after being told she needed surgery for tumor, gallstones, and appendicitis. After receiving weekly treatments from Dr. Hayashi, her health greatly improved and she decided she needed to learn Reiki. After Takata learned Reiki, she brought it back with her to the United States spreading it across Hawaii. Takata passed her Reiki teachings onto 22 Reki masters before her death in 1980. The 22 Reiki masters spread it throughout the west. In the 1980’s it also moved into Europe.
