What is Reiki?

Reiki pronounced (ray-key) is a Japanese word for UNIVERSAL LIFE FORCE ENERGY. It is a holistic hands on approach to well-being–an energy form that supports our natural ability to heal. It is non intrusive and has calming effects on the person receiving it as well as on the one giving it.

It is the energy found in and around all living things. It is a natural, gentle, non-invasive yet powerful method of healing that is given by gentle touch. Reiki is a calming energy form that reduces stress and promotes calm.

REIKI is thought to have originated in ancient Tibet and rediscovered in ancient Sanskrit records brought back to Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui in the late 1800’s. Dr. Usui taught this hands-on, hands-off healing method as well as how to pass on Reiki teachings. Today REIKI is used as a complement to western medicine in a variety of settings, hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, etc. REIKI can enhance pain relief, reduce stress, promote deep relaxation and inner peace. Some people feel heat coming from the practitioner’s hands, others feel a tingling or vibration and others nothing at all. It just means each one’s sensitivity level differs.

We offer an individual Reiki session with our Reiki Master Practitioner, Jeannine Ayres, or you may join our Reiki healing circle held the first Tuesday of every month.  See our EVENTS page for details.
