About Reiki

To learn Reiki, an attunement must be done by a Reiki master for each level. This opens you up to the Reiki energy and connects you forever to the Divine Reiki Source. The Attunement is permanent and cannot be lost or taken away. Each attunement adds up to the precedent one and increase the ability to receive more energy and more clarity with the flow of the Universal Energy.


Just like the bright sun shines to bring you light and warmth, Reiki will take you on a sacred journey to your inner self to bring you deep healing, positivity and a peace that will warm you from the inside out. The knowledge you gain about your mind and body through Reiki’s healing energy provides the deep healing, insight and power necessary to move you forward in your life in a more integrated and complete manner.

Our minds and bodies tell us the story of who we are, and every experience we have ever had, good or bad, gets stored in us energetically through our memories. Just as the good experiences continue to bring us joy and confidence, those moments that brought us anger, pain, doubt, fear or suffering continue to trigger the same negative emotional responses in our bodies, even though we are often unaware of it. These emotional memories manifest as subconscious negative blocks impeding us in our lives and preventing us from meeting our fullest potential as human beings.

Reiki energy can locate these energetic pattern blocks in your body and dissolve them in a very powerful, yet gentle, way. Through a series of Reiki treatments spaced closely together, your mind and body begin to realign to your original energetic pattern and function in a healthy, natural rhythm.

Healing is unique and happens in different ways for each of us. Sometimes, we are highly aware of the issues that need healing in our bodies or in our minds. An illness would be an example of this, as would a troubling emotional relationship. Other times, we are unclear as to what may be causing us to feel out of balance, we just feel it and know we want to feel whole and aligned again. In either case, Reiki is remarkably effective at eliminating the blocks that cause these issues.

When there is uncertainty as to where to begin, Reiki guides the healing. In fact, Reiki always guides the healing. Reiki is Source energy. Reiki knows. It simply is. Reiki works whether one has the ability to understand it or not.

Reiki is safe enough to receive daily, but at least one treatment per week over four weeks is required to see and build the results worthy of your wellness. In this way, your commitment to your healing and growth will create the awareness and inner peace that will lead you to a new way of being.

The energy of love that never ends…

Reiki is Japanese, Rei is spiritual wisdom, some say life force, and Ki is energy. Mikao Usui (1865-1926) is the man responsible for bringing Reiki into existence. Now there are multiple branches of Reiki worldwide.

No matter where you learn Reiki or where you receive a session it is always:

  • Gentle
  • Harmless
  • Natural
  • Healing
  • Balancing
  • Relaxing- when that is what your body is asking for.
  • Energizing- if your energy is drained.

Reiki is not:

  • Religious, all faiths can practice Reiki
  • Massage or Reflexology
  • A substitute for medical care
  • Magic

The universal energy is available to everyone and once your hands are attuned to the energy you become the conduit for that energy. You can share that “love” with nature, pets, people, and material possessions. There is a program where people will hug a teddy bear and put their loving energy into it and then those teddy bears are given to sick kids for their enhanced healing. It really works and everyone is capable of doing it.

Hospitals are increasingly adding programs that allow patients and their family members to receive Reiki. Patients can get per and post operative treatments that help them heal faster. Nurses that know Reiki are a valuable asset to the patients.

*You can receive Reiki from a distance, where the practitioner is not in the room with you.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a natural healing system designed to assist in healing and help achieve balance. Reiki is administered by a practitioner, who serves as a conduit through whom the Universal Life Energy can be transmitted to the recipient, by either hands-on or distance healing techniques. Practitioners may also practice Reiki self-treatments.

How does Reiki energy flow?

Reiki flows through our palms at different rates of speed, depending on various factors such as the extent of the recipient’s illness, degree of blockage, his or her readiness to accept change, and so on.

Is Reiki a form of faith healing?

No, Reiki is not a religion, nor is it based on the acceptance of any religious doctrine. Having a belief system is not a requirement for Reiki to work. Reiki does not infringe on anyone’s right to believe what he or she wishes. However, Reiki’s principles are spiritual in nature and do encourage spiritual empowerment and growth.

Who can benefit from a Reiki treatment?

Reiki’s gift of increased energy and vitality can be extended to anyone. It doesn’t matter what a person’s gender, race, intelligence, or financial status is. Reiki is not a healing energy reserved only for the elite, wealthy, educated, or spiritually evolved.

What does Reiki feel like?

Common Reiki sensations are heat or coolness, “pins and needles” tingling, vibrational buzzing, electrical sparks, numbness, throbbing, itchiness, and drowsiness.

What is a Reiki attunement?

A Reiki attunement is a ritual performed by a Reiki Master. The ritual involves energetic placement of Reiki symbols through a specific set of sequenced actions into the student’s crown and palms.

Will Reiki ever run out?

When you are giving a Reiki treatment to someone, you are giving of your time and your intent to assist, but you are not giving away any of your own energy. Reiki is in infinite supply. It never runs out.

What is the purpose of the Reiki hand placements?

Emphasis is placed on devoting five minutes on each hand placement so that no part of the body is neglected and to ensure that each body part is given equal consideration.

Do I need to direct the flow of Reiki?

Reiki will automatically go to wherever it needs to go with no mental involvement of either the practitioner or the recipient. However, when mental intention is used, a linear pathway is opened. This cleared route allows Reiki to flow more effectively to that part of the body where attention is most desired.

What purpose do Reiki symbols serve?

Independently, each Reiki symbol has its own unique purposes. The combined function of these symbols is to provide Reiki practitioners with focal points for their healing intentions.

Why is Reiki called “smart energy”?

Reiki is an intelligent energy because it knows which areas of the body most need healing and will automatically flow to specific areas where suffering or imbalance are prevalent.
