What is Reiki?

” Reiki is love, love is wholeness, wholeness is balance, balance is well being, well being is freeness from disease.”   ~ Dr. Mikao Usui

Universal Life Force Energy

Reiki (RAY key) as a natural healing art was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan during the mid 1800s.

Rei means God or spirit, and Ki is a version of Chi, meaning energy.  It is a non-physical healing energy made up of life force energy that is guided by the Higher Intelligence, or spiritually guided life force energy. It is not associated with any particular religion, it is all-encompassing. 

Reiki is designed to balance the chakras (connection of our light bodies to our physical bodies) and harmonize resistance impacting health and wellness.

Reiki has three levels. A practitioner must have a Level 2 certificate, and Karen is designated the highest Reiki Master and Teacher level (Teacher can be a  fourth level enabling teaching and attunement of others).

What to expect?

Sessions are fully clothed, and in-person is mainly hands off, with light touch on connection points for limbs, shoulders, and head areas. Most people will feel warmth generating from the hands of the practitioner. A sense of calmness and relaxation accompany.

Remote sessions are performed by absentee healing, connecting energetically to the electro-magnetic field or aura. Distance plays no role – sessions are just as effective.


Reiki FAQ

How does this work remotely, isn't it normally hands on?

Everything is energy. Reiki can be done remotely. You sit or lie down in a quiet location while we communicate by phone. Most of the session is silent, with soft music playing. I may ask you questions to help move the energy and also to discuss what is found. 

What can I expect to feel?

Reiki work installs a sense of calm and balance. It also can give a sense of increased peacefulness and mindfulness. 

Will it ease physical discomfort or symptoms?

There are no claims that Reiki can “treat or cure.” However, most feel a reduction or elimination of physical symptoms as you clear blockages from energy centers.

Can this be used for pets?

Absolutely! I especially work with dogs, cats, and horses, but Reiki is a gentle energy that can also be used to help release the same type of emotional, mental, and physical imbalances in pets as in humans.
