Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is alight-touch healing technique developed in Japan a century ago. Reiki taps into the energy referred to as "ki" in Japan, "chi" in China, and "prada" in India. The awareness that an unseen energy flows through all things and directly affects the quality of a person's health has been the wisdom of many cultures throughout history. This pure energy surrounds us at all times.
Reiki allows us to re-charge, dissolve blocks, and heal on a deep level -- healing body, mind, and spirit. From simple issues to the more complex, Reiki can help with:
Dis-ease and physical conditions often have an emotional beginning (example: the heart attack that occurs after a painful divorce). Stress and other situations can cause disharmony which results in what we call dis-ease. Deep Reiki healing brings the body, mind, and spirit back to its natural state of harmony so that healing can occur. Often, deep-seated issues are released easily and effortlessly. By dissolving blocks and restoring harmony, it is often much easier to make lifestyle changes (diet, exercise, etc.).
It is also possible that today's Reiki session could dissolve some emotional energy and/or blocks that are not yet visible, thus preventing that energy from becoming toxic and creating disease later in your life.
Reiki is safe for everyone - from babies to end of life. As a pure, loving energy, Reiki always goes where YOU need it and for your highest good.
Reiki is often used in combination with standard western medical care and in conjunction with any medications - serving to enhance other modalities. Currently, over1,000 hospitals in the U.S. offer Reiki to their patients. Among these are Yale-New Haven Hospital, Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Institute, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Research shows that, at a minimum, Reiki improves sleep, reduces pain and nausea, and reduces anxiety during childbirth. More and more, the general medical community is learning about Reiki and how we can work together.
