What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a form of complementary and alternative medicine administered through gentle, non-invasive touch.   It was developed in the early 20 th century in Japan and is based on the theory a vital life energy flows through the body.  When this energy is strong and balanced, we feel better physically, emotionally and mentally.  When this energy is weak, we are more likely to be vulnerable to the effects of stress and to succumb to illness.  Reiki treatments are thought to promote stress reduction, relaxation and the body’s natural ability to heal.

Who does Reiki help?
Research has shown Reiki is able to reduce pain and anxiety, as well as improve a sense of well-being, and an enhanced quality of life.  That is why Rose finds Reiki so helpful to use for people who are coping with chronic illness and pain-related issues, such as fibromyalgia, arthritis and other musculoskeletal issues, as well as for those who suffer from anxiety, depression and stress.  People who receive regular Reiki treatments also report improved digestion, improved sleep and better ability to focus and remember.  When sleep has improved, anxiety is reduced and pain is diminished, overall functioning improves.  This leads to a better outlook on life, better decision-making and creative problem solving.  Thus, Reiki is a potent contributor to the counseling process.  Other words people use to describe the benefits of Reiki include feeling peaceful and calm, centered, open, confident, relaxed, refreshed, restored, connected, and like themselves again.   For those who are interested, Reiki can also add a spiritual dimension to their lives.

How does Reiki work?
This question can be answered in two ways.  From a strictly scientific point of view, the answer is simply, “We don’t know.”  When methods and technology have been developed which can make scientific study of Reiki possible, the scientific answer may be different.  On the other hand, although we cannot say HOW it works, if we trust the reports of people who have experienced Reiki, we know that it seems to work by supporting a normal flow of energy throughout the body, which in turn can enhance and accelerate the body’s innate ability to heal.  By placing the hands on or just above the person who rests comfortably and fully clothed on a massage table or in reclining chair, the Reiki practitioner encourages a flow of energy to be drawn into the body.
