What is Reiki anyway and who performs it?

Updated: Nov 21, 2018

Reiki was developed in Japan, in 1922 by a Buddhist monk during his meditation,

though some believe it has been around for much longer. Reiki is a metaphysical

modality which promotes balance and harmony. Reiki is not a religion or a

contradiction of other spiritual foundations.

I have been a Reiki practitioner since 2007 and have been working with a wide range of clients from those struggling to overcome addiction, become pregnant, decrease anxiety, relieve Multiple Sclerosis pains, those in hospice, PTSD, eating disorders, depression or going through cancer treatments to others who feel ‘stuck’ or conflicted, or just want to have general increase of well being. Even dogs enjoy receiving Reiki.

I consider myself a conduit for healing. I do tune-in with people and their body/

emotions, from there, darkness or negativity can surface, be healed and therefore,

people feel better.

Reiki has helped me by healing my emotional wounds in such a way that incidents of my past don’t cause me current struggle. Living a Reiki life allows me to live a much more joyful, peaceful and meaningful existence. I encourage all types of people to give Reiki a chance because it’s a refreshing style of bodywork. Not only do our muscles need attention, but so do our energetic fields.
