Reiki - The Gentle Healing Art:

Reiki was developed by a Japanese man, Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900s. Reiki is a very gentle, pleasant , deeply relaxing, healing touch therapy to help you become energetically balanced physically, emotionally, and mentally. Reiki is NOT massage therapy.

What happens during a Reiki session?
It is important to know and understand that the Reiki practitioner does not do the healing. The Reiki practitioner is the conduit between the client and the universal life force energy. Healing energy flows through the practitioner to encourage the healing processes of the body and mind by restoring and balancing the flow of energy in the body. Each individual is unique and their body will regulate the amount of energy and where it goes.
Reiki is performed in a space free of outside noises and distractions either laying down or sitting comfortably in a chair fully clothed. Soothing music and soft lighting usually assist in the relaxation process. The Reiki practitioner will place her hands slightly above areas of the body in specific energy locations. There is no pressure, massage or manipulation. A typical full-body treatment can last from 20-40- or 60 minutes, but benefits can be experienced in just a few minutes.
