Reiki is pronounced ray-key and is most widely known for reducing stress, inducing relaxation and healing the body, mind and spirit. This healing technique is channeled through the practitioner to the client by the laying on of hands. It is holistic, stimulating a person’s natural healing abilities. Physical and emotional blockages that result in illness are released and cleared. Reiki is divine and allows us to connect to the universal life force that flows in and around all of us.
Reiki was beautifully described by one of the Grand Masters of the past as follows:
“The universal life force is so big we cannot measure it, so deep we cannot fathom it; therefor in Japanese we call it Reiki. It is comparable to a radio station, broadcasting radio waves everywhere. There are no wires connecting the radio station to your home, yet when you turn on the receiver and tune in to the radio waves, you receive what they are sending. The principles of Reiki are the same. The energy is everywhere. It travels through space without wires. Once you have been connected to the energy it flows automatically, forever. It is a universal and immeasurable energy and its power is unlimited.”

As a Reiki Master, I have completed four levels of classes and attunements and have received the ability to teach Reiki to those interested in adding this beautiful treatment into their lives. Sharing this healing treatment with your pets, children and other family members is something you can do on a regular basis. You’ll notice they sleep better, are more balanced energetically, and heal faster. You can also practice this on yourself daily! Scroll down for more information on learning Reiki.
What happens during a Reiki treatment?
Reiki treatments are gentle and non-invasive, making them perfect for all ages. You will be asked to lay down on a Reiki table, close your eyes and breathe deeply. You will remain fully-clothed while you relax and feel the warm energy that transfers through my hands to you. During the treatment, I will place my hands on your body in locations that correspond to your chakras and energy meridians. Healing energy will transfer through my hands into your energy systems helping to release blockages. The Reiki energy and your natural ability to heal will work together to provide you with a wonderful, healing experience.
How will I feel?
Experiencing a Reiki session is different for each individual. Some describe the feeling as a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around them. Some experience the sensations of bright colours and vivid visualizations. Many recipients feel so relaxed – they don’t feel the weight of their own body on the table. The spiritual nature of this treatment can enhance intuition over time and promote personal soul-level evolution.
Reiki provides you with deep relaxation, feelings of peace, security and well-being. It assists all other medical and therapeutic techniques you may be taking part in, to relieve side effects of illness and promote recovery. In allowing your body to heal itself, your energy is balanced, providing an overall feeling of comfort and enhanced quality of life.
Reiki energy is ever-present in our bodies which means that anyone can harness the ability to heal. If you haven’t been attuned to Reiki, you will only be using 10 to 20% of its capacity for healing. The flood gates open once you have received your attunement. This process can only be transferred by a Reiki Master who will open your crown, heart and palm chakras creating a link between you and the Reiki source.
Each time you take a course in Reiki, you receive an attunement from a Reiki Master. The ability to channel specific healing energy is awakened in you through this process. As the recipient of an attunement, you will peacefully relax while the ritual of opening your energetic pathways takes place. Once you have been attuned to Reiki, you will always retain the ability to channel an amplified healing energy. The process is peaceful, gentle and empowering.
Learning Reiki requires no special ability and starts with Level 1. In this class, you will learn the history and basics of Reiki and receive an attunement that will open you to the energy of this particular form of healing. Reiki Level 2 is a fascinating continuation of learning where you learn more about healing the mental, emotional and physical body. In this level you will receive another attunement and will learn various symbols that will increase your ability to channel specific healing energy. A third level of Reiki includes yet another attunement, more symbols and the expansion of your ability to channel healing energy. Last but not least, the fourth level is where you become a Reiki Master. As a master, you will obtain the knowledge and ability to teach and attune others to Reiki.
