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 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.

Review for Diane Occupational therapist: We have been using Diane to treat our son for several years now. She is a great OT and PT and has done wonders for our son who suffers from quadriplegia and aphasia from a TBI. She is such a cheerleader that everyone who uses her loves the care and attention she provides.
Highly recommended!

I have been attending weekly Mindful Art Classes for over a year at Flourish and have enjoyed every minute of it! In addition, I have attended a few of their Free Wellness Wednesday workshops and evening Move My Chi Classes. I’ve learned a lot about Mind/Body/Spirit wellness and have integrated it into my everyday life. The people I have met in the workshops and the staff have all enriched my life in many ways. Flourish is a warm, welcoming, safe place. I highly recommend exploring all they have to offer!

I have been a client of Flourish Counseling and Wellness Center since its inception. I have participated in Flourish workshops, Mindful Art, Mindful Conversations for Difficult times, and nutritional counseling. All are very beneficial. Over the last two weeks, I suffered migraines. Dr. Park came in on her day off to give me an acupuncture treatment. I felt immediate relief. I will be forever thankful to Dr. Park and Flourish. Thank you for teaching the many effective methods of dealing with lifes many challenges.
