Founded in Japan, Reiki is a form of non-invasive, light and love-based energy healing that assist us in our self-love and self-healing. The theory lies on stress, trauma, and illness restricting the natural flow of “ki”- the life force energy through the body and all living things. By restoring this ki to the body, Reiki rejuvenates our ability to relax, de-stress, and support our potential to self-heal. Learn more about Reiki’s theories and logistics here.

More On Reiki
Self-healing has been an ancient knowing and practice, and recently science is catching up to verify this innate capability we all have as in all of nature. In The Healing Field documentary, one can witness the entanglement between quantum physics, energy medicine, the power of emotions and thoughts, environmental effects, and DNA/genetics. It is highly fascinating what empirical studies are showing in the field of healing, and I highly encourage you to watch this film.
By restoring this ki to the body, Reiki rejuvenates the body’s ability to relax and de-stress and support its ability to heal itself. Imagine a dam restricting the natural flow of a river through the landscape, and how by removing this obstacle or blockage we can allow the healing stream of water to rehydrate and restore the earth’s health. Likewise, we can envision this healing balm of our natural flow energy or ki or chi to restore vitality in our body organs and tissues as we heal ourselves from our blockages. Reiki is gentle, kind, and warming from the hands of the practitioner above the client’s clothed body. It is the reiki that radiates from the hands that assists the healing, not the practitioner.
Breathing techniques, vocal tones, and the sweeping of hands above the body in various ways and throughout the room/space also can be used to break up energy blocks and clear the energetic space. Reiki can be performed with light touch from slightly cupped hands on the body of the recipient/client with their permission or it can be done without touch if the recipient prefers with hands above the body 2-3 inches.
Reiki may be defined as a spiritually guided life force energy or Universal Life Energy. Reiki is made up of two Japanese words- Rei and Ki. Rei is a subtle wisdom that permeates everything and guides the evolution of all creation. It is infinite, and thus, all-knowing. It may be translated as Consciousness, God, or Purusha, depending on the culture.
Ki is the nonphysical energy that animates all living things. Ki flows through everything that is alive, including plants, crystals, animals, and space. Ki can be prana, chi, or mana. The source of health comes from this Ki that flows through and around our bodies and organs. Ki responds to our thoughts and feelings. Negative, disharmonious thoughts will cause disruption of ki. Western medicine recognizes the role of the mind in causing illness. Some doctors estimate that 98% of illness is caused directly or indirectly by the mind. (From Reiki Manual)
Healing is available:
Intention is everything.
Reiki flows to the part of the body that needs it.
Reiki can never cause harm.
The beauty of reiki is that because it is directed by higher intelligence, it knows where to go and how to respond to restriction in the flow of ki. Reiki assists to restore this natural flow. Our desire and true intention to change our patterns will greatly help reiki perform lasting effects.
“What we are beginning to discover is that the physical/cellular body that medicine has begun to understand all the way down to the molecular level is nourished, structured, and almost invisibly guided by a variety of spiritual and life-force energy systems. This new perspective of human physiology is based on an understanding that the atomic structure of the body, at the quantum level, is actually made up of particles of frozen light… or compressed miniature energy fields. Subtle energy is tachyonic, or supraluminal, in character, meaning that it travels faster than light.”~Richard Gerber, MD

Although one session may be adequate, long-term imbalances in the body sometimes require multiple treatments in order to allow the body to reach the level of relaxation necessary to bring the system back into balance. Improvement often requires commitment on the recipient/client’s part (e.g., willingness to make lifestyle changes) in order to fully benefit from Reiki treatment(s).
Reiki’s effects vary from person to person, however it is encouraged to nurture yourself through any energetic shift you could experience. Self-healing can occur more gracefully by supporting the body’s natural detoxification process, which can be mental, emotional, physical, or a mix of all. Stay present with yourself, using breath relaxation, and allowing the process to be its own. Self-care, self-loving routines are so many and can be chosen through our personal choice, such as massage, yoga, writing, or a walk in nature. When these are performed long-term and sustainably, they create more openings towards self-healing.
Some symptoms after reiki can include: emotional release, crying, sensitivity, fatigue, desire to sleep or rest, headache, feeling warm or cold, tiredness, and wanting space-time to process or integrate.
Your body possesses its own wisdom to know what is helpful for Your healing. Use your intuition, listen to your body, and follow its guidance. A few simple recommendations can include drinking lots of water, eating clean foods, getting lots of rest, meditating, journaling, and avoiding strenuous activities. However, always follow your medical doctor and practitioner’s guidelines and protocols.
From Richard Gerber, MD in Astrology and The Rising of Kundalini by Barbara Hand Clow
The chakras are not actually part of the physical body but are vortexual energy centers that exist in the higher subtle bodies known as the etheric, astral, and mental bodies. Each of these higher bodies that has its own specialized functions is formed from etheric, astral, or mental matter, a variety of “subtle” matter that vibrates at speeds beyond that of physical matter, allowing the subtle bodies to interpenetrate the physical body. These subtle bodies and their associated chakras actually exist at higher dimensional levels. Thus the term “multidimensional reality” implies interactions not only in the physical body, but also in the higher dimensional bodies, such as the etheric and astral as well.
[This] will make sense only if we view human beings from a higher energetic perspective that takes into account the meridians, chakras, and subtle bodies as energy systems that help to coordinate and regulate the physical body. The chakra system is linked by special channels that travel the length of the spinal cord. In the yogic and tantric traditions, there is an energy force referred to as kundalini, that usually lies dormant in the root chakra at the base of the spine.
In reality, the kundalini is an evolutionary and creative subtle life energy that ascends the spinal pathway, progressively activating each major chakra along its path. As the kundalini energy rises, it may encounter resistance from so-called blockages in the major chakras. These obstructions to energy flow are usually related to an unconscious difficulty the individual has in dealing with particular emotional and spiritual issues that are associated with the blocked chakras. When the kundalini energy encounters resistance to ascent due to the blocked chakra, the energy will continue to hammer away at the area of resistance until the individual either resolves the “blocked emotional issue” or begins to manifest physical symptoms in the particular chakra-associated body region. The physical symptom is often a symbolic message from the higher self to examine the way the individual is dealing with the lessons of [that chakra].
