Balance Through Reiki: Reiki Description
What is Reiki?

Reiki, pronounced "ray key", is a Japanese word meaning "universal life energy". It is an ancient healing modality that balances and purifies the body, mind and spirit through the gentle transmission of energy through the practitioner to the client to promote healing, relaxation and stress reduction.

Reiki is based on the philosophy that a limitless, universal life force energy is the source of all life. This life force energy (also known as Qi or Chi) flows within us, creates our bodies, and determines our state of health.

While its origins may be traced to India and Tibet, it was in the early 1900’s that Dr. Mikao Usui, a university professor from Koyoto, coined the term Reiki and developed it as a Japanese system of healing. Reiki came to the West in the 1970’s through Hawayo Takata, a Japanese-American healer.


Reiki works to treat the root cause of a problem and heals from the inside out by bringing balance to our lives.  Reiki treatments facilitate healing on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.  Many clients believe that by balancing their systems, they are better able to cope and heal with a wide range of conditions such as: 

  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Chronic pain
  • Infertility
  • Autism/developmental delay
  • Digestive diseases
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • PTSD
  • Fatigue
  • End-of-life care and bereavement
  • Benefits:

     Although at this time, the evidence for most of these benefits is anecdotal, there are research data showing that Reiki treatment can be effective. Reiki always acts for the highest good. Because of this, Reiki will never do any harm. Some of the reported benefits of Reiki may include:

  • Reduced stress and improved relaxation
