~A present-day Energy healing modality
with ancient-reaching roots~
What is Reiki
Reiki (pronounced, "ray-kee") is a gentle, yet powerful energy healing technique, developed in Japan. While there are many translations of these Japanese words, rei means "universal" or "spiritual" and ki means "Life Force Energy." Therefore, Reiki is Universal Life Force Energy.
How Reiki Works
Our body uses energy to run efficiently and heal,
but sometimes our energy flow becomes imbalanced.
Reiki provides us with an opportunity to connect with the source of Universal Life Force energy; thus, replenishing and redistributing our own energy supply.
We are energy. Energy surrounds and moves through our bodies, filling every cell and facilitating overall bodily functioning. Stress, injury, grief, illness, daily living, and other factors can sometimes alter our energetic flow. Reiki, which is channeled through the Reiki practitioner and into the recipient, works to help restore, replenish, and reopen energetic pathways. This allows the body's own energy to circulate properly again, which can lead to healing.
About the Practice of Reiki
While we all have the ability to learn and utilize Reiki, those who have been attuned to Reiki serve as conduits, able to readily and reliably access and channel Universal Life Force energy. In this way, attuned & trained practitioners can assist any living being in tuning into and receiving Reiki, so natural healing may take place on all levels. The body strives for energetic balance. Reiki can help facilitate the process of achieving energetic health and harmony. Reiki knows where to go and what to do and can be useful in a variety of situations.
Animal Reiki/Pet Reiki
Animal Reiki/Pet Reiki is similar to Reiki for people in that the practitioner accesses and shares Reiki. Also, the benefits are believed to be the same. However, there are some differences in how the Reiki is delivered to the animal/pet in a Reiki treatment.
Some Humane Societies and shelters welcome Reiki as a benefit to the animals.
Due to its soothing and peace-invoking effects, Reiki is thought to be a way to help our pets with such things as illness, behaviors of concern/focus, and easing the final transition.
Why Reiki is a Good Choice
There are no known risks to receiving a Reiki treatment and Reiki is now being used in some hospitals to supplement other healing methods. Reiki is not associated with any particular religion. Though Reiki is not a replacement for medical advice or treatment, studies indicate Reiki may complement other healing approaches, while offering numerous benefits of its own.
Reiki can be energizing, relaxing, balancing, and revitalizing.

~reduction of stress and anxiety
~relief from pain

~promotion of deep relaxation and better sleep
~support during the final transition
