What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing and health.
Reiki is a source of healing and renewal for the mind and body. When the body is imbalanced, the mind follows, and vice versa. Reiki is a gentle and non-invasive healing approach that fosters healing and balance between the connection of both mind and body.
Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive and powerful form of hands on healing that works to remove blockages or imbalances in the body’s subtle energy systems, as well as negative thoughts, feelings and sensations that are held in the mind and body. It is a natural healing art that creates increased overall health and wellbeing. It can be a source for addressing and clearing negative patterns of acute and chronic conditions and dis-ease that are a part of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual experience.
Reiki healing creates a sense of deep relaxation which heightens the body’s natural ability to rejuvenate the immune system by reducing and removing toxins, stress, emotions that can build up over time. Reiki healing sessions can provide the results and relief that will maintain and enhance your over well-being.
If you are integrating Reiki healing with therapy sessions, it will be a powerful adjunctive to your growth and healing process.
