What is Reiki? 

Reiki (ray-key) is a Japanese wellness practice.  It was discovered by Mikao Usui in 1922.  Essentially, "the laying on of hands" is used as a way to channel healing energies into areas of the body that could use some assistance.  This practice can be used to treat physical, mental, emotional and spiritual conditions.  It is a powerful tool that may assist you with whatever is challenging you.

What can I expect?

A traditional Reiki session begins much like any other holistic wellness treatment such as massage therapy, reflexology or hypnotherapy.  You will be in a calm, soothing environment.  Often, gentle music is playing.  There may be candles lit, unless you are sensitive to these.  The practitioner will speak with you briefly about your needs. Aromatherapy may be used if you would like.  You will remain completely clothed. Then, the practitioner will use appropriate touch to activate regions of your body in order to get the Reiki flowing wherever is is needed.  You should begin to feel relaxed and at ease within minutes.
