What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese-Tibetan technique, a spiritual and healing energy. It is accessible to everyone, but many have forgotten the way. Reiki translates from Japanese as “Universal Life Force Energy,” which balances our energy and brings us back to wholeness. It sustains life and promotes healing in all living things. Reiki exists within the entire universe. Reiki healers serve as channels for this spiritual energy.


Traditional Usui Reiki consists of three levels or degrees. A Reiki student is initiated by a Reiki master by way of attunements, this connects the new practioner to the healing energy. The healing energy enters the body removing energy blocks, clearing out toxins, releasing pain and stress and helps promote our bodies natural ability to heal itself. Reiki works on the body and mind, helping emotional and spiritual levels. Over time it enhances intuition, meditation and personal spiritual evolution. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice.


Reiki is an ancient oriental technique that is thousands of years old. It is an effective healing modality that compliments traditional therapy and modern medicine, as well as other complimentary therapies.
