What is reiki?
“Reiki,” a Japanese word meaning “Universal Life Force Energy,” is an ancient Oriental healing art that uses a non-invasive touch to promote balance and healing within the body, as well as in the mind and spirit. It is a very gentle, yet powerful, energy, suitable for individuals of any age or state of health.
Reiki therapy has been found beneficial for:
- Pain management
- Reduction of stress and anxiety
- Promoting faster healing of wounds and fractures
- Reducing complications of surgery and promoting quicker recovery
- Improving immune function
- Mood stabilization
- Overall balancing of energies
- General health and wellness issues
Why does reiki work?
Reiki works because it addresses not only the physical symptoms of a client’s condition, but more importantly the whole range of attitudes and behaviors surrounding the condition. It also recognizes and deals with cycles of stress, anxiety, physical tension, symptoms and disease.
Client care can be greatly enhanced by incorporating complementary therapies of biofield medicine, such as Reiki, into behavioral approaches, such as biofeedback, support groups and psychotherapy, as well as into the traditional medical approaches of drug and physical therapy.
Reiki therapy works by encouraging clients to participate more fully in their treatment plans, by decreasing stress and pain levels, and by improving overall mental/emotional states. It often results in a decreased need for pain medication.
Clients are given tools to use on their own throughout the day, thus empowering them to become more independent, enhancing not only their quality of life, but also that of their families and/or caretakers.
Reiki is a catalyst for self-healing and offers the possibility of well-being on all levels: spiritual, mental/emotional and physical.

This search for a better, less-toxic way led her first to energy medicine, with Reiki and Kinesiology.
