The system of Reiki is a Japanese spiritual practice from the early 1900’s that supports healing and personal development. It is a traditional method of using Qi or light and energy to heal body, mind and spirit.

Reiki is a touch healing technique that balances life energy. It can be used to heal self and others. Reiki is also a means of self-transformation and evolution.

Reiki energy is life energy. Life energy is what the entire universe is made of including you. Quantum physics defined life energy as “the consciousness that exists in everything.”

At the physical level, life energy is order and perfection. At the mental level, life energy is bliss. At the emotional level, life energy is love.

Life energy is known by many words. In Japan, it is called Ki. In China, it is known as Chi. In India, it known as Prana.

Reiki, the word, is Japanese. The literal translation in Japanese is as follows:

Rei – spiritual or sacred

Ki – energy

Reiki as we know it today originated in the early twentieth century in Japan and was brought to the United States in the late 30’s. It is now practiced worldwide.

“Hands on healing” is a traditional healing method that has always existed. Since the mists of pre-historic time, indigenous shamans used life energy to heal, guide and create balance and harmony within the individual and with nature. These practices were considered sacred and were closely guarded

Buddha and Christ healed by the laying on of hands. It was performed in ancient Greece and Rome. European kings healed the sick with the “Royal Touch” which is a form of touch healing.

Every living being possesses life energy. That is what gives us natural healing ability. To comfort or ease pain, we touch. For injury, we touch. This action is instinctive.



Nature is the rhythm of the Divine Mind. As human beings, we are part of nature. When in resonance with nature, we experience radiant health. When this balance is broken, we experience disease in body and mind.

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”                                                                            -Nikolo Tesla

“If you want to find the secrets of healing, learn Reiki. Reiki brings you into resonance with all of nature.”                                                          -Margaret Glatfelter



Stress creates imbalance preventing an organism from balancing naturally. Reiki releases unnecessary stress, activating the immune system, our vast self-healing potential.

Reiki doesn’t change you; it restores your natural balance. Reiki grounds you. It brings you into balance with all of nature.

“True healing of any condition means to restore the mind, body and spirit to their natural balanced states.”                                                                                                                                              – Charaka Samhita (Ancient Ayurvedic Text on Internal Medicine)



To heal, we relax. Relaxation is healing. When relaxed, sleep deficits are made up. Stress normalizes. Old patterns and bad habits are released.

Relaxation promotes a cohesive flow of life energy throughout the entire structure. This creates wholeness in body, mind and spirit.

When truly relaxed, the hands, heart and mind can then work together. The entire individual is then available to succeed in life.

Reiki relaxes deeply, developing full human potential – the very best you can be.
