why reiki

Many new clients tell me, “I’ve heard of Reiki,

but what exactly is it and what’s it for?”


Stress and Anxiety

Physical Pain


Exploring meditation

Spiritual awakening

Feeling stuck


Finding life purpose


When life is uncomfortable, we often look outside ourselves for answers. But really, the answer can only be found within. 

After you’ve exhausted the options OUT THERE: after the incessant googling, the asking friends what works for them, the scrolling through social media, the medications, the buying the next big thing…

Maybe you’d like to stop. Maybe you’d like to take some breaths. Maybe you’d like to meet your own true self. Maybe you’d like to listen to what that special, sacred, perfect person wants. Maybe you’d like to get real. Maybe you’d like to be Brilliant. Right now. Right where you are. That’s what Reiki is for.




Reiki(ray-kee) is a healing system originating in Japan. It’s actually a form of meditation, along with mantras and guidelines for peaceful living, similar to yoga or tai chi.

“Rei” and “Ki” are Japanese concepts translated roughly as “universal life force.”

“Ki” is the same as “chi” in tai chi. It’s the energy moving through and around our bodies. It’s the energy acupuncturists affect with needles and shiatsu practitioners affect using pressure points with their hands and fingers.

In Reiki we affect the same energy by simply placing our hands lightly on or slightly above the body. The receiver often experiences a peaceful, floaty feeling of easy well-being and a deep, grounded relaxation.*

A reduction in pain, stress, anxiety are typical effects of Reiki sessions.

A healer of body, mind, and spirit, Reiki has a way of illuminating the way if you are faced with a life situation that needs shifting or resolution. After a Reiki session, don’t be surprised if a problem suddenly seems easier, dissolves, or a solution presents itself that you hadn’t thought of in the past.

While a miracle healing is always possible, it is more common that Reiki will guide your life in a way that allows you to grow and heal at the pace that’s just right for you.



*You may feel the Reiki energy as tingling or warmth. You may feel like you’re dreaming and awake at the same time. We may get intuitive information about your life and health. Or you may just drift into a nice long nap. The thing about Reiki is that you can’t “control” what it will or won’t do. We never know what to expect, except that Reiki “knows” what to do. Every time. And will ONLY work for your best and highest good.
