What is Reiki and  What are the Benefits?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation, which also promotes healing. Reiki is, “hands on healing,” and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy," flows through us and is the foundation for us to be alive. If one's energy is low, then you are likely to feel stress and become ill. When your energy is high, life is lived with a greater passion and you are healthy and happy.


The word Reiki derives from Japan. Rei, which means, "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power," and Ki, which is "life force energy". So, Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."


Reiki treats the complete body, emotions, mind and spirit, generating beneficial effects, which include relaxation, feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that anyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness, creating a beneficial result. It also works in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic techniques to reduce side effects and help to promote recovery.


People find that Reiki can provide a greater awareness with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it. While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Reiki founder, Mikao Usui, praised the practice of simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are practically universal across all cultures.

Reiki Healing Health Benefits


Reiki healing is a natural therapy that gently balances life energies and brings well-being to the recipient. One of the greatest Reiki healing health benefits is stress reduction and relaxation. This alone will initiate the bodies’ natural healing abilities.


This simple, non-invasive healing system works with the Higher Self of the Receiver to promote health and well being of the entire physical, emotional and psychic body. Therefore, it is truly a system of attaining and promoting wholeness of Mind, Body and Spirit.


Reiki is a specific type of subtle energy work, in which healing is performed by the touch of the hands, allowing the flow of the energy from a higher source to the patient via the Reiki practitioners hands. It is an extremely powerful, yet gentle energy that can be easily channeled to others.




When the flow of the "Life Force Energy" is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative thoughts and feelings, including fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, negative self-talk, toxicity, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others, from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way.


Reiki is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind, giving the recipient wonderful results.
