What is Reiki?
Reiki is an energy healing technique that promotes relaxation and can reduce stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to your body, improving the flow and balance of your energy to support healing.
Reiki” (ray - key) is a Japanese word meaning “universal life energy,” the energy found in all things. Mikao Usui developed reiki in the early 1900s, deriving the term from the Japanese words rei, meaning
“universal,” and ki, which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Now, reiki is used all over the world to complement other forms of health treatments.
Reiki promotes relaxation, stress reduction and symptom relief to improve overall health and well-being. It can:
Bring on a meditative state.
Foster tissue and bone healing after injury or surgery.
Stimulate your body’s immune system.
Promote natural self-healing.
Relieve pain and tension.
Support the well-being of people receiving traditional medical treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.
During a session, a Reiki practitioner will gently move their hands above or close to the body in a series of positions. Each hand position focuses on a different part of the body — including the head, shoulders, stomach, and feet — and is held for roughly 3 to 10 minutes, depending on the person’s needs. There is very little to no
talking during sessions, which typically last between 60 and 90 minutes. An essential piece is the presence and state of being of the Reiki practitioner, whose training also includes ways to support their own “grounding.”

Our Reiki practitioner, Clare, in her own words:
"It was through experiencing the power of Reiki in my own life that led me to become a practitioner so I was excited from the beginning to share this powerful method of energy healing. However, I could not have anticipated that sharing Reiki would become one of the absolute greatest gifts of my lifetime, and it certainly has. It never ceases to amaze me how unique each session is to the specific person I have the joy of coming alongside, and how powerful the energy healing is for them. I simply offer myself as the vessel and what has unfolded in every single session has felt miraculous. I am so grateful to be able to share Reiki and am constantly inspired by the people that so graciously trust me to assist them in healing and balancing their energies." - Clare Ellinger
