The health of our bodies is directly related to the healthy flow of our energies. When they get blocked, become stagnate, or don’t flow in the proper way, illness results. Unlike Western medicine that focuses on treating symptoms with chemicals and views the body as separate parts, Energy Medicine focuses on the body as a whole and on manipulating the body’s energies to promote self-healing.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for calming and “grounding” the mind and body. The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words, “rei” means “God’s Wisdom” or “the higher power” and “ki” means “life force energy”. Therefore, Reiki means, “spiritually guided life force energy”. Reiki reduces stress and anxiety while promoting healing. It is administered by the gentle laying on of hands and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. Reiki energy works on what is integral to one’s well being; relaxing, reducing stress, releasing blocks, strengthening life force energy and promoting natural self-healing
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It can be used with any malady and works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit. Its beneficial effects include relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and wellbeing. Although Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in if you wish to learn and use Reiki. It has been successfully taught to people of all ages and backgrounds. In order for the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, the client must accept responsibility for his or her healing and actively commit to self-improvement.
