kanji reiki modernoReiki is coined as a Japanese technique for reducing stress and promoting relaxation and healing.

In a hands-on session it is applied by “laying on hands” (client is fully clothed and usually lying on a massage table or sitting in a chair). See below for “Distant Reiki”. 

Energy medicine such as Reiki or acupuncture is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us. This “life force energy” is what causes us to be alive. If one’s life force energy is low, then we are more likely to become ill, and if it is high we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is comprised of two Japanese words – ‘Rei’ which means “God’s Wisdom or Universal Higher Power” and ‘Ki’ which means “life force energy”. So Reiki means “Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy”or “Universal Life Force Energy”.

It was in Japan, in the early 1900’s that Mikao Usui (Usui-Sensei) founded the Reiki system of healing, tho it is believed that the actual power of Reiki goes back thousands of years, perhaps even before Biblical times.


Reiki practitioners don’t “create” or cultivate Reiki. We’re “conduits” to help guide the energy to you. Coupled with your intention to receive, Reiki finds its way to you more directly and effectively. 

Because Reiki is Universally or Spiritually guided, it can never do any harm. It has been proven effective in helping with virtually every known illness and malady and works in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic techniques. Whether subtle or profound, it always creates a beneficial effect.

Reiki is both powerful and gentle. In its long history of use it has aided in healing illnesses and injuries as minor as a bruise to more serious issues like cancer, and anything in between. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method for healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. 




What is Distant Reiki?

Distant Reiki is just as effective as a hands on session. As humans, we tend to prefer a tangible touch but a Distant Reiki session provides an opportunity for a much deeper experience, as well as convenience and ease.

As a recipient of Distant Reiki, if we want to tangibly “feel” it, we’re called to tune into our spiritual side. Meditation, or “quieting the mind” helps us tune into that spiritual side of ourselves. But just sitting or laying comfortably, eyes closed (or you could “mindlessly” be watching the fish swim in your fish tank, or the birds at the bird feeder), try to do nothing but just “be” and breath. If this is challenging, try a guided meditation CD. 

Because Reiki comes from the Source/Creator of life, there is no limitation to where Reiki can go or what it can do.

Intention has a significant role in Distant Reiki. My intention is to direct it to you in your highest good, and your intention would be to receive.

For many, a treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you, somewhat like being in the warming rays of the sun. If you’re able to position yourself in a quiet space to be present, you will be best able to sense this radiance and the transformations being delivered to you.

Reiki treats the whole person including body, mind, spirit and emotions, creating many beneficial effects. Because each session is unique to you, you may experience random emotions, relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results.

Your part…

For our session, you’ll be asked to lay down or sit comfortably in a chair. If you’re unable to do this, you’ll still receive every bit of Reiki sent to you. You can play some soft music, be in silence, or driving the car or anything. I do encourage that you are able to take time to be present for receiving but it’s not necessary.

Set your intention to receive the wisdom, healing, and balancing of Reiki. Allow for this Higher Power to serve you in the best way for you.

My part…

For your Distant session, I’ll be quietly visualizing our connection and interaction just as I would if I were doing a hands-on session. I allow for the Higher Power to guide me intuitively throughout the session.

I might be called to certain areas of the body (IE: feet, head, arms, etc) or simply to hold space as the energy finds its way to any place or issue needing its attention. 


Technical aspects…

We’ll begin at the time specified/scheduled, and the session will end 40 minutes later (via timer). You’ll receive an email the day before our session with a self assessment form and any notes you might want to jot down. After your session concludes, you’ll get another email with another form to assess your post session state.

Healing takes it’s own route and time so its encouraged to be mindful of the synchronicities of unfolding changes and improvements as they come in the days/weeks following your session.

Some practitioners like to have chats before and after the session but I don’t, and I’ll tell you why… it’s not helpful for me to know your business. I don’t need to know the outcome. This is between you and your/our Creator… the Universally guided life force. Think of it as a silent prayer. I don’t need to know. And honestly, I don’t want to know everyone’s business. Me knowing your intentions or desired outcome doesn’t hasten or improve your results.

That said, I am happy to answer any questions you have about your experience, and your session includes open communication, via an email exchange or two, in this regard. I want you to feel informed and satisfied with the process and the experience.


Benefits of a Distant vs Hands-on session

With the busyness of our lives, we actually need MORE self care such as Reiki, but it’s hard to get to a location to get it.

Traffic, gas expense, travel time… and then there’s the chance you might be sensitive to environment (smells or sounds) of the practitioners office. I encountered this with clients being allergic to cats (I have 3). And even if I didn’t have the cats in my office, their fur or dander may have hitched a ride on me or the table linens.

Being in your own environment is often more comfortable and therefore more conducive to your experience.

Also, Distant sessions allow for me to reduce the price of your investment since I don’t have to rent an office, wash and tote linens, etc. Less expense, travel, carbon footprint, etc… It’s a win-win for us and the environment.


!!—> As always, if you are dealing with anything acute or life threatening, please seek the advise of a qualified health practitioner. While Reiki is very powerful and produces amazing results, it should not be used as a substitute for appropriate or responsible healthcare but rather as an adjunct to your total care and well being.
