What is Reiki?

Reiki’s literal translation means “Universal Life Force Energy”. It is a natural, holistic, light touch, energy healing technique. It was founded and developed in Japan in 1922 by Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki assists the body back into a natural rhythm by helping realign and replenish the energy that has been displaced, depleted or blocked by stress (mental, spiritual, and physical), illness or injury. The Reiki Practitioner places his/her hands either lightly on the body or hovering just above the body in a series of hand positions, which helps direct the distribution of Reiki energy.


Reiki is a beautiful and gentle healing modality if you’re looking for something that is non-intrusive. It is relaxing and peaceful and allows you to attain a that Zen space so often needed for deep healing.
