Reiki is a traditional Asian practice which originated in Japan thousands of years ago. It does not conflict with any religious beliefs, meditative disciplines, medical practices or alternative health-care modalities. It only enriches and strengthens the universal theory that anything is possible.
Reiki is a means of channeling universal life energy through the hands of the practitioner into the body of the client in order to balance and align the energy within (chakras) and around (aura) the body. This is done on all levels (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual), strengthening and supporting a healthy mind-body connection. By bringing all aspects of a person into balance, according to his/her specific needs and desires, Reiki promotes a holistic and natural self-healing.
Reiki is quite powerful, yet very gentle – no actual touching of the client’s body is required. It can help to treat any type of dis-ease by assisting with the body’s own natural healing processes.
The concept that all living things have energy fields which need to be balanced for optimal health has been a premise in Eastern medical thinking for centuries. Today, interest in Reiki is being explored and accepted by alternative and holistic approaches to health-care as well as traditional Western medical, chiropractic, dental, veterinary and mental health-care practices.
Many hospitals and hospice centers have now accepted and are utilizing the supportive benefits of various alternative and holistic modalities (including Reiki). The American Medical Association (AMA) has added Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) treatments to their directory of billable procedures. Numerous hospitals and universities have Centers for Integrative Medicine, with CAM courses being offered at over two thirds of their medical schools.
Reiki supports standard health-care treatment modalities by finding the physical, mental, emotional and/or spiritual causes of the symptoms a client is experiencing. The Reiki energy then balances them with the right vibrations so that health can be re-established.
Many double blind studies that have been conducted by both the medical and mental health communities which scientifically support this premise. Reiki was often found to be just as effective as the more traditional treatment protocols. However, when combined with conventional treatments, the degree of lasting success was significantly increased.
Pet owners can also benefit since animals are especially open to the healing energy that Reiki provides. It yields quite powerful results while causing no stress, discomfort or pain. As with humans, Reiki transfers its healing energy, into the animal to assist in restoring physical, emotional and behavioral balance.
Distance Reiki is a way to send the supportive, relaxing, healing energy that Reiki provides to people, animals and situations that are not in the same location as the Reiki Master. Because energy has no boundaries, it can travel to the time (surgery next week, stressful exam coming up tomorrow, sudden illness in the present, etc.) and place (teething baby in the next room, friend battling cancer in another country, transitioning animal companion across town, etc.) when and where it is needed. The results of a distance Reiki treatment are just as effective as an in-person treatment.
A Reiki Share is a time for giving & receiving – where all are able to experience the gift that Reiki has to offer. Each person has the opportunity to receive a Reiki treatment given by a group of Reiki Masters & Healers. Everyone is also encouraged to participate (at whatever his or her current level) in giving a Reiki treatment to others. One need not be attuned to Reiki in order to attend and participate.

CLASSES ~ ATTUNEMENTS
Becoming attuned to this centuries-old practice provides you a valuable tool for self-care. It also teaches you, not only how to achieve a balanced state of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health, it allows you to assist others in doing the same. This is achieved through a series of Reiki Classes or Attunements. Before and after class Aura Photo demonstrate the effects of the Reiki energy.
Reiki I expands your awareness physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually while learning the basics of Reiki, the chakras (energy centers of the body) and giving oneself a Reiki treatment. Physical imbalances in the body begin to clear.

Specific aspects of performing a Reiki treatment are taught, with guided practice taking place during the class. Emotional imbalances in the body are addressed.
Reiki III, the Master Practitioner Attunement, further increases your ability to facilitate a client’s self-healing on all levels. It involves more symbols and a more in-depth understanding of the causes or origins of issues which can manifest into various forms of dis-ease. Additional techniques for giving in-person as well as distance Reiki treatments will be learned and practiced. This attunement focuses more on the mental aspects of a person.
Reiki IV, the Master Teacher Attunement, is for everyone, not just those intending to pass Reiki knowledge and training on to others. With this attunement an increased knowledge and insight into the intuitive or spiritual aspects of Reiki is attained.
