Expanded Information
Reiki is a spiritual healing art. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. A reiki session usually takes an hour, some practitiones offer 1 1/2 hour sessions. The session is performed by a Reiki Practitioner (RP or RMT) using specific hand positions. During the reiki session, the client is fully clothed while comfortably reclining on a massage table or seated in a chair. It is stress-reducing and a very relaxing experience.

Reiki is:

• A subtle and effective form of energy healing using spiritually guided life force energy

• Practiced in every country of the world

• Being used in many setting including hospitals, hospice, as well as in private practice and in self-care

• A wonderful complementary modality in a personal wellness or healing program

Defining qualities of Reiki:
