about Reiki / healing energy

The word Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a combination of the Japanese words "rei" meaning universal and "ki" meaning life energy. Reiki is an ancient Eastern energy healing methodology that was codified and introduced to the West in the early 20th century. Though Reiki's foundation is spiritual in nature in that it draws upon our connection to a higher universal energy, it is not a religion: It involves no dogma or worship.

Eastern energy healing practitioners have known for some time and Western scientists and medical professionals are beginning to recognize that all living beings have intrinsic energy fields or biofields. [1]

Challenges to our health and well-being from circumstances such as physical or mental illnesses, injuries, surgery, emotional trauma, abuse, spiritual questioning and ancestral issues are mirrored in our biofields. Though medical providers, therapists and religious mentors can help us heal on various levels, we may still feel a bit out of step with life and even ill as a result of imprints that such challenges leave on our energy fields. Healing our energy fields is where Reiki / healing energy excels.

As a complement to services from more conventional professionals, energetic adjustments, corrections and enhancements provided by a trained Reiki practitioner / energy worker have been shown to help

  • accelerate healing on multiple levels (physical, emotional and spiritual),

  • reduce pain and discomfort,

  • support deep relaxation and quality sleep, and

  • improve well-being.

With its record of positive outcomes in the West, Reiki is becoming more widely accepted by Western medicine as an effective complementary healing modality. [2]

Though Reiki is my core practice, I also identify as an energy worker to acknowledge influences from other domains in which I am trained such as shamanism, Qigong and intuitive healing that inspire my work and enrich the healing experience for my clients.
