What is Reiki?

REIKI is a Japanese stress reduction and relaxation technique that also promotes healing. Administered by "laying on hands," it is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and causes us to be alive. If our life force energy is low, we are more likely to get sick or feel stressed; if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The name Reiki, pronounced "Ray-key," comes from two Japanese words: Rei, which means "Spirit; God's Wisdom or the Higher Power," and Ki, which is life force energy. Reiki literally translates to, "spiritually guided Universal life force energy." Reiki is a natural, noninvasive, simple, and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that yields powerful results for the body, mind and spirit.

In practicing Reiki, Shari holds the healing space for her client and sets the intention to facilitate the healing process. Reiki flows through her as the "channel," with the client regulating the amount of energy flow he/she wishes to receive. There is usually a gentle, energetic pulling sensation from the part of the body most in need of healing.

What to Expect

A Reiki treatment creates the feeling of a wonderful, glowing radiance flowing through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person: body, emotions, mind and spirit. It creates many beneficial effects, including relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results including: strengthening the immune system, clearing toxins and energy blockages, stress reduction and self-healing, pain relief, as well as increased vitality and self-awareness.

Everyone can use Reiki. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness/malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. Reiki can do no harm, as the energy works within our bodies, where balancing is most needed. It targets the source of the problem, supporting balance, harmony and well- being.
