The Benefits of Reiki

Reiki is a technique of channeling universal energy that originated in Japan. This energy is a nonphysical, spiritually guided life force energy that can be used for hands on healing. Reiki can be taught and passed on to people by a Reiki Master. For those who are ready to listen and to learn, Reiki is in and of itself one of the greatest teachers. Anyone can learn and practice Reiki, though it has deep, profound effects on the apprentice. Reiki energy helps strengthen and guide a person's healing abilities to new heights and steers their mind towards deeper understanding.

People often find themselves energized rather than tired after treating others with Reiki because it uses energy that is spiritually guided and is not specifically the practitioner's own energies. The Reiki practitioner is not specifically the healer but instead is the channel that the Reiki energy moves through. The recipient's higher self, upon accepting the Reiki energy, then works with the energy and healing takes place. Reiki does not conflict with other health care practices but can in fact enhance their results.

Unlike other healing techniques that can be forgotten or lost over time if not practiced, Reiki is something one can practice for life once one has been attuned to it. Even if you do not use Reiki for years it will still be available to you if you call upon it again.

Reiki training contains three essential parts: the theoretical overview of what it is, the practical techniques of how to use it and the spiritual attunement to the energy.

"To be a Reiki Master means not to have mastered Reiki but to be mastered by Reiki".

The Reiki Ideals

"Today I give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today, I will let go of worry.
Just for today, I will let go of anger.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I will be kind to my neighbour and to every living thing".

What Happens in a Reiki Treatment?

A treatment is performed with the recipient wearing comfortable clothes and lying down on a massage table. The practitioner places their hands gently on or over the joints, and the major energy centers of the recipient's body. During a treatment, the Reiki practitioner channels Reiki energy, and it is drawn to the areas of the body that are open and ready to accept this life-healing energy.

How Might I Feel after a Treatment?

Each person responds to Reiki in their own way. But most often individuals are relaxed, emotionally rejuvenated and at peace with themselves after a treatment.

How Long is a Treatment and How Much does it Cost?

A treatment takes an hour and costs $65.00 per session.

What Will I Learn in a Reiki Course?

In Reiki classes people learn the history and philosophy of Reiki. They also receive personal instruction and have many opportunities to practise the techniques. At each level of training a person is "attuned" to a specific level of Reiki energy. This attunement boosts their vibrational level and allows them to access the energy more readily.
