Reiki Is Holistic & Complimentary

Reiki is compatible with any other medical or healing technique.  It cannot interfere with medicine, bandages, physical therapy, surgery or other treatments, and in fact, can only enhance their efficacy.  Reiki is not guaranteed to instantly cure any or all ills, but can always add a sense of calm and comfort, and will generally help relieve pain and accelerate healing by supporting the body's, and the mind's, own natural healing systems.

Reiki is frequently used along with massage, physical therapy, psychotherapy, even chemotherapy, and just about any healing modality or medical practice you can think of.  Mothers in labor appreciate the calm support and relaxation that helps minimize pain.  Hospice patients at the end of life find comfort and peace in their passing.  Reiki can often make headaches manageable while waiting for pain medication to take effect, may replace medication altogether, and can offer relief from anxiety.  Reiki is a powerful tool for any medical professional or healing practitioner from nursing staff to doctors to support staff.

Reiki is similar to other spiritual and energy healing techniques such as therapeutic touch, Spiritualist healing, polarity therapy,, shamanic healing, or healing prayer, yet is unique in the way it is taught and practiced, and in the way it works without draining the practitioner's energy or transmitting the illness or anxiety from the recipient to the practitioner as some other healing techniques can.  Reiki can also be a spiritual path, and even a beautiful way of life.

Reiki Is Affordable


Reiki returns incredible value for every dollar and every moment spent.  While Reiki does not claim to cure COVID-19 or any other condition, it can help everyone achieve and maintain their Optimal Wellness at any time, and help us help each other.

This is a crucial time to use every possible effective resource for self-care, and Reiki is one of the most effective with the least risk.  To begin with, it's relaxing, and relaxation has a deeply empowering effect on our immune systems, but it's so much more than that.

When we are stressed, our nervous system is overstimulated and we may feel overwhelmed, which strains our other systems and can even shut them down.  This is how the fight-or-flight response works.  When we're upset or afraid, for instance, digestion slows or halts so we'll be ready to run away or face an enemy.  Another automatic response is to freeze or hide, but this isn't true relaxation, even if we're immobilized.

Relaxation and safety are necessary for our healing systems to function at their best.  While this pandemic situation isn't exactly safe, we can learn to create a more relaxed state deliberately, but it's hard to do this by ourselves.  We need support, especially in times like this, to trigger the helpful tend-and-befriend, or rest-and-relax physiological responses instead of the fight-or-flight instincts.  

Reiki provides opportunities for both personal practice and shared wellness support.  Even a few sessions can begin to teach your mind and body to create habits of calm and relaxation, and enhance your own relaxation practice.  

Compare the modest price of receiving the support you need to the crushing costs of illness and stress, as well as your quality of life, and make the investment that's right for you.
