What is Reiki?

Reiki is a powerful yet gentle method of healing touch designed to bring profound peace and healing to the mental, physical and emotional body. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a precise method for connecting life-force energy to be in perfect balance in the body.

Reiki complements and enhances all types of medical treatments. It helps relieve stress, agitation and acute and chronic pain; it is helpful as an aid for sleeping; and it also can be an energizer. It promotes the release of emotions such as grief, anger or anxiety and provides comfort in palliative care. Reiki accelerates wound healing. It produces a feeling of mental clarity, calmness, well-being and spiritual connection.

Reiki aids healing in virtually every known illness and injury. Every person responds differently to Reiki. The person being treated is not “healed” by the practitioner. The person’s healing comes from the life force flowing through the practitioner.

Reiki clears and balances true energy and in doing so removes imbalances in the mental, physical, spiritual and emotional bodies. The effects of this cleansing and rebalancing process are variable. The benefits often include the following:

  • Reduces physical symptoms
  • Reduces anxiety
  • Increases sense of well-being
  • Increases relaxation
  • Releases toxins from the body
  • Releases negative emotions
  • Increases spiritual connection
  • Supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself

The effects of Reiki are cumulative; the more you receive, the better you feel. Reiki is a healing tool, not necessarily a cure for disease. While it can compliment all forms of allopathic and holistic therapies, it is never intended to replace medical advise or treatment.

In a Reiki session, the practitioner passes energy to the recipient through a gentle, still placement of the hands on specific energy centers through the body. A typical Reiki session takes approximately an hour and the recipient remains fully clothed during the process.

Reiki is soothing and calming and often promotes deep relaxation, a reduction in stress, and a general sense of well-being. Recipients often report feeling warmth, heat, or soothing waves of energy during the sessions.

It has been more years than I care to remember when I did not feel pain when walking. Your Reiki treatments have made a huge difference in not just diminshing my physical symptoms, but my sense of well being had heightened. Thank you, Katie!” (Christine N.)

Katie, thank you for the long distance Reiki energy. It soothed and healed physically and emotionally. I have so enjoyed my balm and the sinus cleared up that congestion. I’m so happy and thank you for making difference for so many of us who get to know you.” (Polly W.)
