What is Reiki?

Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things.  The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy.” Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energywork.

• In layman’s terms, Reiki is an energetic “tune up” for the body.  It helps physical and spiritual energy flow more effectively, thereby creating better health.

• Reiki focuses on pouring healing energy into the body as well as removing old blockages which can occur from past traumas (physical or emotional) and current stress and anxiety.  Reiki also clears and opens the chakras as well as balances one’s total energetic (auric) field.

• A non-invasive and very gentle form of pain relief, Reiki is safe for all ages.

• Although traditional Reiki involves “hands on” healing, if you are uncomfortable with healing touch, energy can effectively be sent into the body from a distance.

Heather Describes Reiki...

Even with practicing Reiki for over 17 years, I still find myself at a loss to be able to put Reiki into words.  It is such a unique experience with each person I spend time with in session.  Let me explain…  The Reiki practitioner has been attuned so channels have been opened letting Reiki energy  flow through the practitioner.  In a sense the practitioner is a vessel the energy flows through.  The client is allowing how much energy flows to them through the Reiki practitioner in a session.  There is never a rush or push, just a very gentle presence of support and an infusion of energy.   Reiki can balance and bring harmony to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of ourselves.

With Reiki we are not limited by the confides of time and space therefore we can send energy back to moments in time that may be causing the symptoms or stress of today.  We can also send energy forward to any moments that are coming up that may be stressful or feel imbalanced.  The possibilities of using Reiki is truly unlimited.  There is never a rush or push, just a very gentle presence of support and an infusion of vital life force energy for when we are empty.  For me Reiki is a beautiful experience of unconditional love and channeling it to support the aspects of us that are ready to heal.
