What is Reiki?
Reiki (RAY-key) is a holistic healing art that aids the body by creating deep relaxation and a sense of peace. Reiki promotes healing and health at the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
All living beings have life force energy within them. This energy is referred to as Ki (pronounced key). When you are not feeling your best physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually, this Ki, or life force energy, may become blocked or diminished and will not flow easily. You may compare life force energy to water flowing through a garden hose. When there is a bend in the hose, the water will not flow.
Perhaps you are experiencing some kind of challenge or “bend” in your life, a health challenge or even an emotional situation. Reiki can loosen or remove blocked energy, and bring balance and wellness back to your body, heart and mind. When you improve the flow of your life force energy, you feel more energized, healthier, and more joyful. I invite you to experience Reiki for yourself.
Usui and Karuna Reiki®
Usui Reiki and Karuna Reiki® are two forms of energetic healing. Usui Reiki began in Japan about 1917 with Mikao Usui; he was grateful for this healing modality and used Reiki extensively. Dr. Hayashi further developed Reiki; Mrs. Takata learned Reiki from Dr. Hayashi and shared Reiki with the Western world. They all trained students to pass on the Reiki tradition for which I am infinitely grateful. Karuna Reiki® has its roots in Usui Reiki and was developed in the U.S. by the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT).
