an introduction to reiki and its benefits

Reiki Energy Healing is a natural and gentle method used to help open energy blockages in the body and assist in the healing process of physical injuries, illness, emotional imbalances, past wounds, and fears. It also helps relieve stress, anxiety, depression, tension, and insomnia. Reiki is also very beneficial to women who struggle with hormonal issues.

Reiki Energy is Pure Life Force Energy and is in all living things: people, plants, and animals. It is our aliveness and flows in and around our bodies in a certain way. Much like our circulatory system, we have pathways that our Life Force Energy is supposed to flow freely through and when it does we feel good but when there is a blockage you will soon start to feel out of balance and can have a number of symptoms, ranging from:



Brain fog

Muscle ache


We are under stress like never before in our culture and it never seems to go away. We never seem to get a chance to just unplug - this gives us stress that compounds. We tend to hold onto this stress and carry it with us, often times for many years. When we carry past stress and trauma in our bodies, it creates blockages in our energy flow and can eventually manifest into physical, mental, and emotional imbalances within our bodies even causing illness and disease.

By utilizing Reiki as a holistic tool to healing emotional and physical pain, we can release the blockages by moving the stuck energy and allowing it to move freely again therefore bringing balance and harmony back into the body. Light touch, if preferred, takes place on different areas of the body, including the head, shoulders, legs, and feet. Clients often go into a relaxing state, sometimes even falling asleep.

The relaxation response is pretty important & scientific studies show Reiki shifts the body from the ‘fight or flight response' to the ‘rest digest and restore’ (parasympathetic) mode. This is the state our immune system is supported and natural healing occurs.

After treatments, clients report feelings of clarity, "lightness", worry and stress-free, as well as a sense of peace and calm. Reiki Energy Healing lasts for several days after each session, sometimes longer and aids for a good night's sleep. Some clients come to me to just switch off and relax.

Lowering everyday stress is essential in maintaining optimal health. In today's fast-paced world, it is very easy to ignore our well-being to focus on our jobs, our families, our friends. However, if we spent a little more time listening to our bodies, we would discover they have plenty to say. Illness, physical pain, and disease are just some of the ways our bodies speak to us and Reiki is a fantastic way to help.


Reiki Practitioners do not diagnose conditions neither do they prescribe or perform medical treatment, prescribe substances nor interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional. Reiki does not take the place of medical care. Reiki should not be used as a replacement for the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions by a physician, or as a replacement for the diagnosis and treatment of psychological conditions by a psychiatrist and/or a psychologist. Reiki can complement any medical or psychological care the client may be receiving. The body has the ability to heal itself and to do so complete relaxation is often beneficial. Long term imbalances in the body sometimes require multiple sessions in order to facilitate the level of relaxation needed by the body to heal itself.
