What is Reiki?
"Universal life energy" Everyone is born with Reiki. It is the energy of life itself. Reiki was developed in Japan in 1922 by Mikao Usui (pictured) and brought to the West in 1937 by Hawayo Takata. The Usui system is a healing art that utilizes this universal life force. It is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. http://www.reiki.org/
What to expect in a Reiki session
Reiki energy flows through the practitioner and into the client through the gentle laying on of hands. The client remains fully clothed. This is a non-invasive, gentle and highly intuitive session with the practitioner placing their hands at different locations on or near the body. Sessions may last 45-90 minutes according to the clients needs for their specific healing journey. (Muscle and tissue manipulation is not involved).
