Discover the Essence of Reiki

Explore the roots of Reiki, a powerful technique introduced in Japan around 1922 by the esteemed Dr. Mikao Usui, sometimes known as Usui Sensei. The term “Reiki” originates from the fusion of two Japanese words, symbolizing the essence of “Universal Life Energy.”

Balancing Life’s Energies: The Core of Reiki Philosophy

At its core, Reiki embodies an ancient form of energy work, meticulously designed to alleviate stress, induce relaxation, and facilitate profound healing, making it a valuable tool in trauma therapy. Rooted in the belief that the flow of life force energy within us dictates our overall well-being, Reiki endeavors to harmonize and rebalance this vital energy, addressing both physical and emotional imbalances that may arise when it is out of balance. Research studies are finding that Reiki can activate the body’s parasympathetic nervous system, resulting in lower stress hormones and an increase in relaxation. This activation of the parasympathetic nervous system, which houses the Vagus Nerve, a key component to a body’s mood, functionality, ability to digest, rest, have creativity, and maintain social connection, suggests Reiki’s potential for trauma healing. Embraced as a pivotal component of somatic practices, Reiki seamlessly complements conventional medical and psychological interventions, offering a holistic approach to trauma recovery.

It’s important to acknowledge that while Reiki offers a holistic approach to wellness, it is by no means a substitute for professional medical or psychiatric care. We urge you to maintain regular consultations with your healthcare providers and adhere to prescribed medications for comprehensive well-being.

What to expect in a Reiki session?

During a Reiki session, intentions are set for what the client would like to gain from the session. The client will lie down comfortably on a massage table and remain fully clothed. The practitioner begins by placing their hands lightly on or just above specific areas of the body, depending on if the client is comfortable with touch or not. The practitioner focuses on channeling healing energy. As the session progresses, clients often experience a deep sense of relaxation and may feel sensations such as warmth, tingling, or gentle pulsations. Reiki aims to promote physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being by balancing the body’s energy centers, known as chakras, fostering a sense of harmony and rejuvenation.
