How is a Reiki treatment given?
In a standard treatment Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands into the client. It is important to note that the Reiki practitioner is a conduit to healing energy and not actually providing the healing energy. Meaning, Reiki energy flows through rather than is provided by one person.
What does a Reiki treatment feel like?
What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside their bodies or have visions and other mystical experiences. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
Is it safe to receive Reiki treatments?

How does Reiki work?
Your life force energy (qi or chi) flows through your body in channels called meridians, according to Eastern traditional medicine. If one of these meridians is blocked, you become ill, either physically or emotionally. Reiki unblocks these meridians, allowing your energy to flow freely, restoring the body and mind to a state of balance and health. It’s a cumulative healing effect. The level of healing in each session is dependent on the individual receiving Reiki. Reiki is used in both eastern and western traditions.
Why use sound healing in Reiki?
Every living cell has a frequency of vibration generated by its own electrical field. Cells communicate through both chemical and vibrational exchange. The wellness of an individual depends on the harmonious balance of cells. As cells interact with each other they also interact with the vibrational frequency of other organs and the body as a whole. Sound therapy/healing is effective in not only achieving a state of relaxation but it also has a way of moving energy through the body. Sound therapy has been known to help alleviate a variety of common symptoms such as stress, anxiety and more.
