Reiki is an ancient Japanese practice that while subtle and gentle in nature, can offer deep and profound healing. Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy. In this form of energy work the practitioner will either hover their hands over or lay them upon the client, acting as a conduit, flowing energy that offers calming, balancing and stress-reducing effects that trigger the persons natural capacity to heal. Similar to an acupuncturist using needles to facilitate the free flowing of energy throughout the body, Reiki assists in moving energetic blockages and increasing the energetic vibration of the client.
Within just a few sessions, some of the many benefits that one can expect to experience are:

Healing can be experienced on a cellular and energetic level, within all components of ones being, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Reiki is not affiliated with any religion or religious practice, nor does one need to be spiritual to benefit from it, however for some it can be a very spiritual experience.
For those with cancer, studies and anecdotal evidence has shown that, in addition to promoting relaxation, reducing pain, anxiety and sickness, Reiki can also be used to encourage healing. Some studies have explored the effect of Reiki on patients who are undergoing cancer treatment concurrently. These studies have found that, although Reiki is not a substitute for other cancer treatments, it can enhance these treatments and offer a number of benefits to patients as they deal with the symptoms and stresses of cancer.
Individuals will remain fully clothed during their treatment. Often more than one treatment is necessary to guide one back into a state of balance, yet each person’s needs will be unique.
