Definition of Reiki

Reiki is a spiritual healing art. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. A Reiki session usually is between 60 and 90 minutes in length. The session is performed by a Reiki Practitioner (RP or RMT) using specific Reiki hand positions. During a Reiki session, the client is fully clothed while comfortably reclining on a massage table or seated in a chair. A Reiki session aids in stress reduction and it is almost always a very relaxing experience. Reiki sessions or classes are a great investment in yourself.

  • A subtle and effective form of energy healing using spiritually guided life force energy (Rei-ki)
  • Practiced in every country of the world
  • Being used in many settings including hospitals, hospice, as well as in private practice and in self-care
  • A wonderful complementary modality in a personal wellness or healing program

Reiki is not:

  • Affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice
  • New. Reiki energy itself is thousands of years old

Defining qualities of Reiki:

  • A practice of transmitting healing energy through the hands
  • Passed on through the attunement process
  • The energy is not guided by the practitioner, but the energy has it’s own innate wisdom to guide itself.
  • Reiki energy is not based on belief, faith or suggestion.

A Reiki session may help ease tension and stress and may help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels- physical, emotional and spiritual. A session is pleasant and relaxing and is most often utilized for one’s own personal wellness. A Reiki Level I class is a great gift to give to yourself.
