Reiki promotes healing through stress reduction and relaxation. Developed in Japan, the word “Reiki” comes from two Japanese words:
“Rei” – Universal, Spiritual Consciousness, Higher Power
“Ki” – Life Force Energy
During a Reiki session, this “universal life force energy” is channeled through the Reiki practitioner to the recipient. Reiki energy helps to harmonize the body, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects.
Reiki is not a substitute for medical care and is not a cure for disease or illness. Reiki promotes deep relaxation which may foster an environment that encourages healing and may help reduce stress in those who are dealing with chronic pain or major illness. Even Dr. Oz included information on Reiki on his popular television show. The links below contain interesting videos
of information given by Dr. Oz concerning the use of Reiki and a video of an ABC broadcast concerning Reiki:

Although Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. If you have questions about how Reiki fits in with Christian religious beliefs, you may find the website www.christianreiki.org helpful.
What to expect during a Reiki session:
We strive to create a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere with soft lights and meditative music.
You will most likely be lying on a massage table, but treatments may also take place while sitting in a chair. You remain fully clothed for a Reiki session. Loose, comfortable clothing is recommended and you will be asked to remove your shoes.
The Reiki practitioner’s hands will either be placed lightly on your body or held slightly above. There is no muscle manipulation as there is in massage. You may feel tingling sensations or warmth emanating from the practitioner’s hands as the Reiki energy flows. Many clients relax deeply and have a meditative experience. Some people even relax so much that they fall asleep.

Everyone is capable of becoming a Reiki practitioner. As part of your Reiki training class you will
