What is Reiki?

Reiki translates into “universal energy.” Energy is all around us. Quantum physics described energy as the force that holds tiny particles together so that we perceive things in nature as solid. All matter is made up of energy—including human beings. The reiki model of healing focuses on how energy, through the chakra system, affects physical, mental, and spiritual well-being by redistributing imbalanced energy throughout the body or removing blockages. A chakra is a wheel of energy within the body that affects physical and emotional aspects of the human experience, which can get blocked a create uneven distribution of energy.

What Does a Reiki Treatment Feel Like?

Everyone experiences reiki differently; some see memories or colors; some feel temperature changes or sensations within the body. Most receivers experience a deep sense of relaxation and peace. A reiki practitioner will often use hands to transport this energy, but touch is not necessary for healing. Reiki has minimal risk and can be given to anyone willing to receive.

Reiki can help with any type of ailment, among those are:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Self-esteem/Self-worth
  • Grief/Complicated Grief
  • Chronic stress-related diseases
  • Chronic Pain
  • Digestive Issues
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Complimentary treatment for medical treatment, such as cancer treatment or surgery
  • Complimentary treatment for mental health therapies

Reiki is used all over the world, including in hospitals and hospices, to complement other health treatments and help people become more energetically balanced—physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.  Reiki does not adhere to any spiritual or religious tradition; it is universal and safe.
