Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an ancient Japanese healing art that was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s.
Usui’s passion for helping others lead him on a path of self discovery and transformation which he taught down through to a lineage of Reiki Masters. It is a light-touch, energy-based modality.
Working as a support mechanism to the body, Reiki re-establishes a normal energy flow of Qi (life force energy) throughout the system, which in turn can enhance and accelerate the body’s innate healing ability.
Through a series of hand positions either directly on or just above the body, the certified Reiki practioner allows for the flow of energy through their body. The client’s body then draws off the amount of energy that is required. Reiki energy works in concert with all other forms of therapy and is a perfect compliment to other treatments.
How is Reiki done and what can I expect in a session?

This can accelerate and enhance the client’s innate healing ability, so pain, stress and injury are replaced with health and vitality. Because Reiki is simple and produces measurable results it is a great compliment to any treatment and has no negative effects.
