What is Reiki?

1.  Healing Energy. Reiki is simply Universal Life Energy that we as practitioners channel for healing body, mind, and spirit.
2.  Soothing Energy.  It works on the body, mind, and spirit, producing calming effects.
3.  Cleansing Energy.  It raises our vibration as it clears our energy field of debris and blockages that interfere with our growth.

Who Performs Reiki?

All healing comes from the same Divine source.  Reiki is one method with ancient Tibetan and Japanese roots whereby energy is
transferred through  from a ReikiMaster to a student/initiate.  It can be hands on or auric (just above the body in the auric   field).  
Anyone who has been attuned by a certified Reiki Master canpractice Reiki.Three levels are taught in the traditional Usui Method
of Natural Healing (the type of Reiki I perform and teach).  First Degree focuses on the  physical attunement and physical healing
and purpose/history of the art.  Second Degree expands the Reiki energy, teaching sacred symbols   to   use for distanceand
emotional/psychologtical healing.  Third degree, the Reiki Master level, enables practitioners  to teach and initiate  others.  It  raises
one's vibration further topromote healing of the self and others

                         Who Receives Reiki?

                                 Reiki works on all living things (and even on inanimate objects, too).  Of course, people were the  initial Reiki clients,
                                 but the energy works wonders on all living things.  Plants and animals enjoy tremendous benefits from Reiki, and even
                                 more than people since they are neither skeptical of nor resistant to natural healing methods.  When I received my Reiki
                                 I training back in 1989, I didn't realize how important it was until I came home that night to see my terminally ill standard
                                 poodle in distress from  auto-immune intestinal diseased.  I  gave him Reiki energy, and within moments, the violent noises
                                 in his belly subsided, and he fell into a calm sleep.  I knew then what would be my primary purpose as a Reiki practitioner
                                 and completed the next two levels of training within a couple of years.   I have had quite a few terminally ill canine  clients;
                                 Reiki is truly a gift for them as it eases the effects of stressful chemotherapy and aggressive steroidal therapy.  It also eases
                                 the transition from this life to the next, for animals and people as well.

                                                 How is it given?

                                                         People receive Reiki treatments on a massage table.  The recipient lies on the table while the practitioner administers
                                                         reiki the chakra points or over the entire bodyand on areas that require particular attention.  We always start at the
                                                         crown as energy flows from the head down. Breathing becomes deeper as the body melts into relaxation..
                                                         Often the cllient will drift off in meditation or sleep while soft music plays in the background. Reiki can also be
                                                         sent via distance if the practitioner  has earned the second degree certificate.Visit our online Reiki Circle page to learn
                                                         how you and your animals can participate in our weekly sessions.

                                                         Can Anyone Learn?

                                                                         YES!!!!  Reiki requires no prior experience or belief system. It is not confined to an elite few but meant for
                                                                         everyone with an interest.  Anyone can learn,  regardless of spiritual background, training, religious conviction.
