Reiki approaches healing in a natural and gentle way focusing on the energetic systems of the body. It is sometimes used to address pain and suffering associated with unexpressed emotions, emotional suffering, and past traumas. We often incorporate many other modalities into our energy work sessions in San Francisco & Marin (Mill Valley).

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an energetic healing technique. People use similar methods across the world as their first step in addressing health concerns. Even though it has only recently become popular in the West, energy healing has been practiced in various forms for hundreds, probably thousands of years.
Reiki is simple to learn and can have profound effects on the body. It is thought to help supply the body with the energy needed to heal. Western medicine does not accept it as a valid healing technique, but research is being conducted on an ongoing basis. The mechanisms of how energy healingi works are not yet understood, but they seem to be similar to those employed by Acupuncture and Chiropractic.
A Reiki practitioner transfers energy through the laying on of hands. A standard treatment includes placing the hands in positions around the head, shoulders, stomach, and feet. In addition, the practitioner may use other positions for specific concerns the client may have. The practitioner holds each position for between five and ten minutes, and the entire treatment lasts right around an hour.
A treatment benefits both the client and practitioner and provides deep relaxation. Reiki does not focus on specific issues as is often the case with both Chiropractic and Sports Massage. Rather, it approaches the body as a whole helping to energize and balance the receiver. Other methods, such as sound healing, are often incorportated into an energy healing session.
