What is Reiki?

The Johns Hopkins Medicine definition is:

Reiki is a very specific form of energy healing, in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body, as in “laying on of the hands.” Reiki can also be done “long-distance,” as a form of prayer.

Reiki is so much more to me. As water replenishes my thirst, irrigates my organs and boosts my immune system, so does Reiki on an energy level. It makes you feel good and the more often you receive Reiki treatments, the better you feel.

When my Reiki Masters shared this gift with me through organized classes, it changed my life exponentially the deeper I went. Through Reiki, I have become a vehicle for emotional, spiritual and physical healing. This is the most rewarding experience other than being a mother that I have ever felt.
It was revealed to me during Reiki II that a large part of my mission here is to assist with our veterans.
Through Reiki healing energy we can begin to heal wounds on the soul level and bring the energy forth to the physical. These are the areas that medicine and counseling can’t reach.

Reiki does what the recipient needs. Each time that I go into a session with a client, the energy is never the same. Each treatment is specifically tailored to what is needed. I enjoy clearing my mind and allowing the energy to flow. Sometimes the energy is very strong and very warm and at others its very light and always loving. Clients tell me that it’s always exactly what they needed. Now that’s really cool.
