What is Reiki


The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese kanji. The two syllables illustrate two concepts: the Rei (the top portion of the kanji) represents the divine, universal life-force energy and our Spirit our Soul, while the “ki” (the bottom part of the kanji) represents our earthly energies, our bodies and that part of our mind which is manifesting in this material world. Reiki, therefore, helps to align divine energy with our earthly energies.

The practice of Reiki can be described as the “laying on of hands”. In the traditional Usui practice, healing energy is directed mostly to the body / organs / glands requiring balance and healing. In the Holographic practice the body sends out images in its auric field, through your chakras, which can be interpreted and cleared. These images can be memories from this life or past lives, or they can be energetic debris. With both practices, it is the Divine Light, or God’s Love, which is channelled to effectuate a release of the old energy and increase in renewing energy. Reiki is simple and produces measurable results. It is power, light and love. Reiki transcends the man-made divisions of religion, economics, location, gender, and race.

I have been trained in and practice both Usui and Holographic Reiki. Depending on your healing intention, your session may be more “Usui-style” or “Holographic”. For instance, if you need help healing from a cold or a surgery, I will start with Usui Reiki to send healing energy to your body, your filtering organs and your glandular system to strengthen your immune system. However, if you have a long history of colds and flus or other dis-ease, the Holographic system may be used to investigate what, in your auric field, is attracting this body condition.


You will feel deeply relaxed during and re-energized after your session. This state of well-being will help you achieve significant healing in the various layers of your being. Feeling refreshed and positive, you can bring healing to others and to Earth.

This list has been comprised through anecdotal research. Clients have reported feeling:

  • More creative
  • More balanced
  • Less emotional
  • Less stressed
  • More relaxed
  • More vitality
  • More awareness
  • Less or no pain
  • More ability to fall asleep quickly
  • More ease of movement

These reported benefits generally lasted at least three to ten days, and often the original problem did not re-occur.
