“First the mind must be healed.  Second, the body must be made sound.  If the mind is healthy, conforming to a path of integrity, then the body becomes sturdy of its own accord.”

~ Mikao Usui (1865-1926), Discoverer of Reiki

Reiki (ray-key) is a natural healing energetic technique.  People use similar techniques across the world as the first step in addressing health concerns. Even though it has only recently become popular in the West, Reiki has been practiced in various forms for hundreds, probably thousands of years. 

Reiki is simple to learn but can have profound effects on the body. It helps the body to heal. Western medicine has yet to accept Reiki as a valid healing technique.  We don’t yet fully understand it.

A Reiki practitioner transfers Reiki 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.

Sei Hei Ki helps in purification of the body and gaining emotional balance.

Raku, also known as the “fire serpent” helps to ground the practitioner and receiver after a Reiki session. Drawn from head to ground, the purpose of raku is to allow the body to receive the benefits of Reiki—much like how savasana is used at the end of yoga to help the body absorb all the benefits of the practice.
