What is a Reiki Healing?

A Reiki healing consists of laying the hands on or over the body in a prescribed pattern, allowing the energy of life to flow through the hands to the person being treated.

The basic element of life energy is the essence of this healing practice.  Human beings are energy systems.  If we accept this premise, then life energy is the essential and most basic element of the human energy system.  We suffer when we don't have enough energy to carry out our life functions or when we, as energy systems, are out of balance.  The effect of receiving a Reiki healing is that our supply of life energy is increased and we return to balance.  In this state of balance and renewed energy we can then heal.

The Usui System of Reiki Healing is first a healing practice focusing on self-treatment.  Daily practice is ideal.  The practice balances and strengthens the functions and health of the physical body, enhances relaxation and self-awareness, and quiets and nourishes the spirit.  

Applying Reiki is practical and useful.  It accelerates and strengthens any healing process from bruising to chronic illness to mental/emotional imbalance.  Reiki can be used at any time and in any situation when we can lay our hands on or over ourselves or another.  

Reiki is broken down into three sections:

  • Reiki 1 - Self healing
  • Reiki 2 - Healing of others/distance healing
  • Reiki 3 - Master/teacher level


I work with a professional massage table, various healing stones & crystals and can provide aromatherapy using doTerra essential oils, upon request.  We will discuss your intention and any blockages you feel you may have and work from there.
