About Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese healing modality. The word Rei means universal, and Ki means energy. Every culture has a reference to this energy. In China it is Chi, in India it is Prana, for Christians it may be the Holy Spirit. 


It is believed that a practitioner who has been attuned to this Reiki energy can then pass it on to a client. The Reiki energy may help a client feel more in balance by helping to reduce stress, anxiety, and in some cases pain. This supports wellbeing and healing. It is non-invasive and only requires the client to lay or sit comfortably. It produces a feeling similar to deep meditation.


More than 20% of medical facilities in the United States offer Reiki services. These include Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, OSU’s Wexner Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Harvard University’s Cancer Center, and Columbia University Medical Center. In many of these institutions, it is offered to patients and employees as part of employee wellbeing.
