Reiki is a type of energy healing. The word Reiki is made of    two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which means “life force energy”.  So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.” The Reiki practitioner is the conduit for this energy, which  flows through them.  It is transferred to the client through the practitioner’s hands either on or above the body.  As spiritually guided life force energy, Reiki goes where it is needed and is totally safe.  It is complementary to both holistic and traditional healing modalities.  It promotes relaxation and stress reduction that supports and allows balance for all levels of being: body, mind, and spirit.  An energy healing session may go deeper by supporting a client’s awareness and release of physical, emotional, and mental patterns that no longer serve, as well as, assist them in the creation of patterns that embrace wellness and joy.  Depending on the needs of the client, different modalities may be combined for a synergistic effect in supporting wholeness.  Reiki, breath work, visualization, aromatherapy, and crystal therapy are just some of the modalities that may be utilized in a session.
