An ancient art of hands-on healing that eases discomfort, restores balance and sustains health.

The word “Reiki” comes from the Japanese word rei, meaning “universal life” and ki, meaning “energy.” Reiki is believed to be the life energy that flows through all living things; this “ki” energy should be strong and free-flowing, nourishing and revitalizing the body and mind. By easing tension and stress that often block the natural flow of energy, Reiki helps your body create an environment that facilitates healing on all levels—physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Reiki helps alleviate side effects of medical treatment, such as fatigue, nausea, pain and anxiety.

Reiki therapy involves the laying of hands on or above a clothed person. The hand positions focus on the energy centers of the body, helping to balance energy, thereby reducing stress and promoting relaxation. Reiki is not a cure for a disease or illness. Rather, it’s used to complement traditional medicine and is practiced in many hospitals and medical care settings.
