Supporting Health and Well-Being, Alleviating Suffering
“Mine is a spiritual method of healing, not a scientific one.” Mikao Usui, founder of Reiki
“Reiki is love.” Mrs. Chiyoko Yamaguchi studied with Dr. Hayashi and practiced Reiki in Japan for 65 years.
The human body is programmed for self-healing. Reiki is a soothing flow of energy that facilitates, supports, and enhances this natural healing process by moving energy. A Reiki session induces deep relaxation, releases tension and stress, and activates the body’s healing processes.
The energy used is not the practitioner’s, but the Universal Energy that flows through all of life. Because it is directed by the Higher Power and not the practitioner, the result is specific to each client. The healing that takes place is between the recipient and the Higher Power—the practitioner is simply the conduit for connecting the two in a more powerful way than the client can typically do for themselves.

Supporting other healing modalities
Reiki is not a substitute for medical or psychological treatment; rather, it supports other modalities in a powerful way. For example: What psychotherapy addresses on a cognitive level, Reiki supports by shifting energy on a cellular level. As chemotherapy seeks to destroy cancer cells, Reiki aids in mitigating side-effects such as fatigue and emotional distress.
A Tool for Spiritual Transformation
For those who desire it, Reiki is a powerful tool for spiritual transformation, whatever your spiritual path. Reiki is unconditional love—the purest form of compassion. The deepest healing comes about through acceptance of ourselves and others without judgment. As we allow Reiki—unconditional love—to flow through us, we integrate the masculine with the feminine (cerebral brain with the intuitive brain in the gut) through the ministrations of the compassionate heart, and we come into balance with ourselves, with others, with our world.
