What is Reiki?



Many ask, ‘What is Reiki?’ or ‘energy healing Reiki’ as referred by some.

It is “Universal Life Force Energy” that aids one to achieve a deeply relaxed state creating room for healing as a result. The benefit of Reiki lies in its simplicity. The energy healing Reiki can reduce stress and anxieties; is capable of soothing both the receiver as well as the practitioner and is being used more every day to compliment conventional medicine treatments and practices; in addition to its preventative qualities.

“Stress”, if left unattended or allowed to get out of control creates many negative effects, especially if sustained long term.

Stress is created by several factors, including but not limited to, bad eating habits, the thoughts you choose, your perception towards life, everyday toxins from the food we consume and our environment, spinal imbalances, sedentary lifestyle, insufficient quality sleep, etc. We must work to understand stress, our bodies and their links.

Who can benefit from Reiki? Anyone.

Reiki has proven supportive for people who suffer from:

  • insomnia
  • depression
  • chronic physical problems
  • high blood pressure
  • illnesses, etc
As well as for and/or people who are going through tough times in their life:
  • such as separation
  • divorce
  • death of a loved one
  • job loss
  • terminal illness, etc.

Reiki energy healing promotes a state of deep relaxation, much like a great nights rest, and in return, reduces stress promoting self-healing all the way to the cellular level: One benefit of Reiki that cascades to a large number of other aspects of our lives simply by working with such a primary aspect of our bodies.

This holistic healing method works on a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level, re-establishing balance and well-being.

Reiki raises the vibrational level of the aura in the areas where negative, lower vibrational energies are attached and attaches higher vibrational Reiki energies. Reiki energy infuses these areas with positive energy which allows denser energy to break apart, enabling the stronger life force to flow in a healthy, natural way again.

Energy healing Reiki supports your natural healing ability by helping you strengthen from within!

Some of the many benefits noted by recipients after a session included:

  • a great night sleep
  • a surge of energy
  • increased creativity
  • less emotional intensity
  • clarity
  • less stressed
  • more balanced and focused
  • and lessened or little to no pain

Reiki energy can sometimes induce relaxation that even the best night’s sleep hasn’t provided.

Is your life force energy low? If so, you are more susceptible to illness and stress. Negative thought patterns, attitudes and beliefs will all contribute to low life force energy and can result in illness if left unaddressed for too long. Anger, frustration, depression, hatred, fear, and other draining negative emotions are stresses that weaken the immune system. Essentially your energy is consumed by the ‘fight or flight’, instead of concentrating on ‘healing and repair’.

With strong life force energy you are more capable of balancing health, accepting happiness, and embracing great joy. In order for the Reiki healing energy to have lasting results, the client must accept responsibility for his or her healing and take an active part.

Not only is Reiki great as preventative and alternative therapies but it is also an excellent compliment to conventional medicine. Reiki means ‘Universal Life Force Energy’ which is the very same thing we are made of. The benefit of Reiki energy is the improved speed to our healing processes; those which have previously been slowed or eliminated by negative thought patterns and beliefs. It increases higher vibration energy in your system and improves the natural energy flow.

In short, energy healing Reiki benefits everyone with its magnificent healing potential Naturally!
