Reiki is a Japanese technique for relaxation and stress relief believed by many to promote the bodies ability to heal itself.
As a Reiki Master, I have been trained (initiated, attuned) to channel Universal Life Force Energy through me to you. This energy is experienced differently by each person but most agree its the most relaxed they have ever felt. It is this “relaxation response” that is believed to initiate the body’s inate healing ability.
Reiki benefits every living thing it comes in contact with. Besides using it on people, I also use it on pets, plants and even electronic equipment.
Receiving a Reiki session stimulates the immune system and releases endorphins into the body (feel good chemicals) and eases pain. Because of these factors, Reiki is beneficial to those with disorders like fibromyalgia, arthritis and lupus where the patient cannot tolerate the deeper touch of massage.
Anyone who takes a reiki class is immediately able to channel the Universal Life Force Energy to themselves or another. The ability to use Reiki is given by direct transmission from teacher to student. There is no studying involved. One simply receives the attunement and begins channeling the energy. It is through using this gift that one increases the flow of energy that can be used.
