What is Reiki?

The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese characters. The first, REI, means spirit, guided, conscious, or universe; the second, KI, means life force. When you put them together you have a conscious energy that may be used to heal. The system is called the Usui System of Natural Healing, after it was rediscovered in Japan by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and later brought to the West.

A Reiki session usually takes between one and two hours. Reiki is not massage, nor is it based on belief or suggestion. The session is performed by a Certified Reiki Practitioner or Certified Reiki Master/Teacher (CRP or CRMT) using specific hand positions or energy scanning either lightly touching the body or just above it. During the Reiki session, the client is fully clothed while comfortably reclining on a massage table or seated in a chair. Reiki is a very relaxing experience and has many benefits including: stress reduction, pain reduction, emotional release, and helping your body heal itself.
