Introduction to Reiki


Reiki is a holistic healing practice that originated in Japan in the early 20th century. The word "Reiki" is derived from two Japanese words: "rei," which means universal, and "ki," which means life force energy. Reiki is based on the belief that there is a universal life force energy that flows through all living things and that this energy can be harnessed and channeled to promote healing, relaxation, and overall well-being.

Reiki: What is it?


The practice of Reiki involves the practitioner acting as a conduit for this healing energy, transmitting it to the recipient through their hands. Reiki is typically performed through a light, non-invasive touch or even with the hands hovering slightly above the recipient's body. The intention of Reiki is to restore balance and harmony to the body's energy system, facilitating the natural healing processes.

Reiki is not affiliated with any specific religious or spiritual belief system, making it accessible and adaptable to individuals from all backgrounds. It is used as a complementary therapy alongside conventional medical treatments to support the body's healing journey.

Key Things to Know about Reiki

Energy Healing: Reiki is a form of energy healing that works on the principle that disruptions or imbalances in the body's energy flow can lead to physical, emotional, or spiritual ailments. By channeling healing energy, Reiki aims to restore the body's energy equilibrium.


Holistic Approach: Reiki takes a holistic approach to healing, addressing not only the physical symptoms but also the underlying emotional and energetic aspects of a person. It is often used to reduce stress, alleviate pain, enhance relaxation, and promote overall well-being.


Chakras and Energy Centers: Reiki practitioners often work with the concept of chakras, which are energy centers located throughout the body. Each chakra is associated with specific qualities and functions. Reiki helps balance and align these energy centers.


Attunements: Reiki practitioners undergo a process called attunement or initiation, conducted by a Reiki Master. Attunements open the practitioner's energy channels and enable them to channel healing energy more effectively. Different levels of attunements correspond to different levels of Reiki practice.


Self-Healing: Reiki can be practiced for self-healing. Individuals can learn techniques to channel Reiki energy to themselves, promoting their own well-being and personal growth.


Distance Healing: Reiki is not limited by physical proximity. Practitioners can send healing energy across distances, allowing for remote or distance healing sessions.


Complementary Therapy: Reiki is often used as a complementary therapy alongside conventional medical treatments. It is not a replacement for medical care but can support the body's healing processes.


In times of stress, use Reiki to calm your nervous system.

How to use Reiki?

Utilizing Reiki as a healing and wellness practice involves channeling universal life force energy for self-care and the well-being of others. To use Reiki effectively you will need to be attuned by a Reiki master.

  • Self-Healing: Begin by practicing Reiki on yourself. Find a quiet and comfortable space, place your hands on or near your body, and allow the healing energy to flow. Focus on areas of tension or discomfort, and visualize the energy bringing balance and relaxation.​

  • Daily Ritual: Dedicate a few minutes each day to a Reiki self-care ritual. Incorporate deep breathing and mindfulness as you let the energy flow through your hands, nurturing your body, mind, and spirit.

  • Chakra Balancing: Use Reiki to balance and align your chakras. Place your hands on each chakra point and allow the energy to cleanse and harmonize these energy centers.

  • Meditation Enhancer: Infuse your meditation practice with Reiki energy. During meditation, place your hands in a comfortable position and let the energy enhance your sense of calm and inner peace.

  • Stress Relief: In times of stress, use Reiki to calm your nervous system. Gently place your hands on your heart or forehead, and visualize the energy dissipating stress and promoting relaxation.

  • Energizing Food and Water: Before consuming food or water, hold your hands over the item and visualize Reiki energy infusing it with healing vibrations.

  • Support for Others: Offer Reiki to friends, family members, or pets who are open to receiving it. Place your hands on or near their body and channel the healing energy to support their well-being.

  • Distance Healing: Send Reiki energy to loved ones who are far away or in need. Intend for the energy to reach them and provide healing, even if you're physically apart.

  • Before Sleep: Use Reiki to promote restful sleep. Perform a self-Reiki session before bedtime, focusing on relaxation and inviting peaceful dreams.

  • Intentions and Goals: Infuse your intentions and goals with Reiki energy. During meditation or quiet moments, direct the energy toward your aspirations, enhancing your focus and determination.

Reiki is a powerful and accessible healing practice that can bring balance and harmony to the body, mind, and spirit. Trust your intuition as you work with the energy, and always approach it with a pure and positive intention for healing and well-being.
