Reiki Treatment


Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an ancient holistic healing modality facilitated by using universal life-force energy to heal the body. The word ‘Reiki’ finds its origin in two Japanese Kanji words: “Rei” and “Ki.” The word “Rei” can be translated to English as either “spiritual wisdom” or “universal.” The word “ki” is often translated to English as “life-force energy” or simply “energy.” The end result of joining these two Japanese Kanji words together is a rough English translation of “spiritually-guided, life-force energy” or “wise energy.”

Ki, the omnipresent (present everywhere), omniscient (all-knowing) energy behind Reiki, goes by many other names around the world: In China it’s known as Chi, in India it is known as Prana, in Hawaii it is known as Ti or Ki, and by the ancient Egyptians it was known as Ka. Regardless of its name, this polyonymous energy is believed to have no origin in religion or spiritual tradition. I say “believed to” because the original roots of Reiki are unknown, however, it is believed to be ancient dating back thousands of years.


Despite its mysterious origins, Reiki can be traced back to its “rediscovery” of sorts by Master Mikao Usui (1865-1926) in Japan during the 19th century. While much is unknown about Master Usui, it is generally accepted and understood that Master Usui was heavily influenced by his time studying in the Buddhist temples of Japan. Like many before and after him, he spent much of his time in meditation and drew inspiration from his connection to Source. He also travelled throughout Chinese monasteries studying sacred texts in search of any information he could find regarding the subject of energy healing, what the source of this energy was, how it worked, and how to transmit it to others. It is said he discovered formulas in some of these sacred texts that helped him access these higher, healing energies, though him simply discovering them was not the same as learning to put them to use. Some believe these formulas to be the Reiki symbols.


While it is true that Reiki’s origins cannot be found in religion, some have said Master Usui was also the principal of a Christian Seminary in Japan for a short time and was influenced and inspired by the healing abilities of Jesus Christ, too. He also visited Mount Kurama-yama in Japan, a place said to be of great, yet calming, energy. It was in this home to Buddhist temples for thousands of years that Master Usui fasted and meditated as part of a 21-day solo retreat. With the intention of gaining insight and answers about energy healing. It was here where it’s said an energy of great power entered Master Usui through his third eye which, in turn, connected Master Usui with the Reiki energy. Accompanied by visions of a symbols, this experience attuned him to a powerful healing energy and the understanding of how to transfer not only the energy to others, but also the gift of healing itself. You guessed it, he called this energy, Reiki, and the Usui Reiki Ryôhô (the Usui System of Reiki) was born.


At first, Master Usui practiced on himself, on his family, and on others in his community before opening a clinic in Japan in 1922. It was through this clinic that he began teaching and attuning students to Reiki. One of these students, Chujiro Hayashi (1879-1940), passed on all the levels of Reiki to Hawayo Takata (1900-1980) who is credited for bringing Reiki to North America in 1938. She taught 22 students to the level of Reiki Masters before her passing, and through their descendants, they have helped spread the practice of Reiki throughout the world.

Unlike most other healing modalities, Reiki is transferred from a Reiki Master Teacher to a Reiki student by way of an attunement. This standardized energetic process transfers the Reiki energy to the student as well as connects the Reiki student with the source of Reiki. Each level of Reiki requires a new attunement. The First attunement (First Degree Reiki), the attunement activates the student’s palm chakras by opening the crown and heart chakras creating a channel that the universal life force energy can enter, flow through, and exit the palms to provide healing. This process will occur whether in person or being conducted from a distance. This channel expands with each attunement increasing the amount of Reiki that can flow through it. The channel becomes stronger with use, but a student/practitioner can only perform Reiki treatments at the level for which they have been attuned. Reiki does not wear off and once attuned, the student/practitioner can never lose it or deplete it. I’ve received my level-two attunement and a third level-2 Reiki Share attunement and intend on completing all 21 to become a Reiki Master.


So what does this mean to you? The history of Reiki aside, essentially, Reiki is one of the healing energies that I summon for use in the facilitation of your healing. Being omniscient, it knows everything there is to do with each person’s unique situation regardless of the ailments and symptoms they present with; their causes; and perhaps most importantly, exactly how to heal them and in which order the body is ready for. Reiki, in all its wisdom, only heals what each person is ready to have healed and nothing more. It can be performed both in person and from a distance. This all seeing, all-knowing, all-powerful energy is not confined to the boundaries of space and time. Fueled by love and intention, this energy permeates every cell of your body and begins the process of returning it to a place where it can heal to its natural homeostasis. I have seen Reiki do wonders, not to mention the wondrous effect it has had on me.


As implied above, I incorporate Reiki into all my healing sessions, but it always depends on the situation. If requested, I'm happy to only use Reiki, but all of this will be discussed with you during your free consultation. My sessions are billed at the hourly rate that you can read more about here.
