Reiki is a technique that promotes relaxation, diminished stress and pain, and healing at the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. While a precise translation from Japanese to English is difficult, the word “rei” refers to spirit and/or universe. “Ki” means vital or life force energy. A basic understanding of Reiki is that this universal life force energy can be accessed and channeled to support healing. Known too as the Usui System of Natural Healing, Reiki is likely an ancient practice, which Dr. Mikao Usui rediscovered in Japan in the early 20th century. A Japanese-American named Hawayo Takata brought Reiki to the West after extensive training in Japan.

The following are commonly reported benefits of Reiki practice. Although at this time, the evidence for most of these benefits is anecdotal, there are research data showing Reiki treatment can be effective for relaxation, pain management, reduced anxiety, reduced depression, and enhanced well-being:

  • Relaxation
  • Pain management
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Reduced depression
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved digestion
  • Enhanced well-being
  • Stronger self-esteem
  • Support for substance abuse recovery
  • Accelerated surgical recovery
  • Reduced side effects from radiation, chemotherapy and Rx meds
  • Greater self awareness
  • Greater ease and satisfaction in relationship
  • Heightened intuition

When you receive Reiki healing, you’ll lie fully clothed on a treatment table while the Reiki practitioner places hands lightly on or just above your head and torso.
