Frequestly Asked Questions

What is Reiki?

Reiki is Universal Life Force Energy. It is an ancient healing technique which was re-discovered in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki is present in all living things and is activated in individuals through a process known as attunement.

In Eastern traditions, attunement is a commonly known method of passing on spiritual knowledge from a Master to a Student. When an individual is trained or attuned to practice Reiki, this energy acts in a healing capacity which benefits a person on physical, spiritual, mental and emotional levels. Reiki passes through a practitioners hands and is directed by the practitioner to energy centres in the body.

How does Reiki work?

In our physical world and as quantum physics attests to, what we think of as matter and energy are one and the same. People are made up of both a physical body and an energetic body. The energetic body includes the aura, chakras and meridians. The aura is an energy field that surrounds our physical body. Chakras are centres of energy located at different points in our body. Meridians, in the Eastern medical tradition are channels of energy.

Reiki works on these subtle energies by introducing pure, positive, powerful life force energy to restore and replenish what may be missing. When we encounter stress in our lives, that energy can actually be stored in our bodies – sometimes for very long periods of time and eventually leading to disease. Reiki can help release these, bringing about a sense of balance and well-being. Reiki is self-regulating so you will only receive what you can handle and the energy you receive will automatically travel to where it is needed most.

What are the benefits of Reiki?

The benefits of Reiki are many and varied. Most clients will report a feeling of calm and a lessening of anxiety during and after a treatment. Aches and pains can dissolve, peace may come into a situation of concern, a connection to the Divine may be strengthened, emotional states may change for the better or new and positive thought patterns may be established. In other words, healing of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual concerns are the chief benefits of receiving a Reiki treatment.

What does Reiki treat?

In a physical way, it can lessen or remove pain and speed up healing. I have often used Reiki to treat backache, headache and stomach pains to great success. I know that it works well to reduce allergy symptoms and insomnia as well. However, this is only a partial list as Reiki has the ability to work on any area where a person needs it most.

If you have emotional concerns such as anxiety, phobia, relationship issues or depression, Reiki can provide insight and relief. It can be effective in treating mental concerns such as improving memory or breaking old thought habits. Last but certainly not least, Reiki is a great way to get more in touch with our connection to the Universe, our higher selves or simply to find more meaning in life.

What is a Reiki treatment like?

A Reiki session looks essentially like a massage but with clothing kept on and the practitioner’s hands are stationary. The practitioner will either be touching certain areas of the client’s body or hovering over them for a couple of minutes at a time and then move on to the next area.

Clients vary in the experiences they have during a Reiki session. Some clients experience emotional releases such as crying or laughing. Clients may also experience temperature changes, pulsing, involuntary twitching, a tingling feeling or jerking movements. The vast majority of clients experience a feeling of relaxation and being at peace. There is also a chance that a client may not feel much of anything. No matter what a session is like, know that Reiki is doing its work for your highest and greatest good.
