Reiki Energy Healing


Balance your mind and body with the healing power of Reiki.

Reiki is a powerful, hands-on, ancient Japanese healing technique that channels and clears energy. When you come in for a session, our highly skilled Reiki healer will assess and balance your chakras by acting as a conduit between you and the universal energy field.

In Reiki, the “life force” or energy that flows through us is called Ki. When Ki flows effortlessly, we experience a sense of well-being. We feel healthy, happy, and optimistic about the future.

When the flow of Ki is disrupted, it weakens the functioning of organs and tissues, causing your mind and body to feel unbalanced. It often shows up in the form of pain, illness, stress, anxiety, negative behavior, or an overall pessimistic state of being.

Reiki Questions

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a gentle yet powerful healing modality originally from Japan. The character “rei” means “universal” and “ki” means “energy.” Reiki is widely accepted in hospitals and wellness centers as a supplemental therapy that supports relaxation, stress relief, and physical recovery. It is also known by spiritual teachers and healers to help clear and balance our chakras (the seven main energy centers in the body) and awaken our intuition and spiritual gifts.

What happens during a Reiki session?

During a session, a practitioner who has been attuned to Reiki serves as a conduit for universal energy to move through his or her hands. The hands are gently placed on different places on the body, including head, torso, and limbs. While this happens, you are free to do as you please: meditate, sleep, or drift off into a world of your own. As Reiki energy flows into the body, it gently opens and releases blocks to your health and well-being.

What can you expect after receiving Reiki?

Every Reiki session is different depending on the individual. Among the most commonly reported effects are: an increased sense of ease and peace, being less reactive to stressful events, more restful and deep sleep, increased energy and mental clarity, and a reduction of physical pain from various ailments.

How often should you have Reiki sessions?

That is totally up to you. Think about how often you like to work out or get a massage for your physical body. Reiki is like a work out or massage for your spiritual body! The best part is that all you need to do is relax and receive.

Some Reiki facilitators, including myself, practice self-Reiki every day. Most people like to receive Reiki at least once a month, or whenever they feel stressed or out of balance. After any kind of significant life change, shock, or trauma is another good time to consider having a Reiki session.

Who can benefit from a Reiki session?

Everyone who is willing and able to lie still on a massage table, relax, and receive.

What do I wear to a Reiki session?

Anything comfortable. It is recommended that you remove your jewelry or watch.

How long does a Reiki session last?

Typically, Reiki sessions last 60 minutes.

Do you have to do it more than once?

Again, that is completely your choice. Those who experience the greatest benefit from Reiki are those who receive Reiki regularly.

How can you know how many Reiki sessions it will take to heal something?

You can’t. Healing is not linear or predictable, which means that an issue or ailment that one person can release in one session could take several sessions for another person. You may, however, choose to ask your Reiki practitioner to address particular issues or symptoms. Clear intention is incredibly powerful!
