The word Reiki (Ray-key) comes from the Japanese word Rei- meaning “Universal Life “ and “Ki”- meaning energy. Through scientific studies in Quantum Physics,  energy healing has become a mainstream form of holistic healing.

Reiki is often described as “ meditation done with the hands”. It is the Universal Life Energy that is in all things. Channeling the Life Form Energy helps to shift the body into balance on an emotional, physical and/or Spiritual level. Gentle hand placement over the 7 Chakras, legs and feet by the Practitioner assists the person in finding relaxation, to begin to address emotional issues or assist in removing blocked energy channels. Reiki energy is cumulative with each session assisting the body to homeostasis. 

Reiki sessions last 50-60 minutes in a gentle and comforting environment.
