Come to the Reiki Orientation to learn more about Reiki and to see if this is for you.
Reiki is a gentle, soothing Japanese touch therapy for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on the concept that everything in the universe is made up of energy and that this "life force energy" that flows all around us is drawn in by the body nourishing the cells, organs, and glands. When our energy is depleted, imbalanced, or the flow is restricted by stress and "holding", injury, illness, etc., we are more susceptible to discomfort, further illness, and disease (as with restrictions of the circulatory and nervous systems). Once our energy is restored, free flowing, or balanced, we are more likely to feel relaxed and our body's own innate healing abilities are "jump-started" and utilized for healing.
Unlike massage, Reiki is administered through a soft touch rather than deep pressure. While a person is seated or lying down and fully clothed, the Reiki Practitioner's hands are placed along energy centers and pathways on the head, neck, chest, abdomen, arms, hands, legs, and feet. As energy is transferred to the body, the patient may feel warmth, coolness, gentle tingling, or just deep relaxation. For those in the final stages of life, it can also provide a more peaceful "transition."
