What is Reiki?
"Reiki is a healing prayer using touch." --Marj Selle
WHAT IS REIKI? DENVER REIKI MASTER EXPLAINS
Japanese Buddhists believed that an unseen energy flowed
through the body and was necessary to live. Brought to the West, Reiki is the
practice of nurturing this life force into its full potential through a Reiki
Master’s intuition and touch.
How Reiki Works
Reiki uses the body’s natural energy in a guided series of
hand placements to harness our own ability to heal and repair. It is believed that the energy in our bodies
can be guided by a Reiki Master to help balance chakras, aid in relaxation,
and provide healing benefits. Reiki
works in conjunction with other medical treatments, including psychological
The use of energy healing can
help to lessen the side effects of various treatments, including chemotherapy
and post-operative pain. It is the use
of energy from the Reiki Master and the patient that helps to align the body’s
natural healing powers and bring all systems and functions into alignment.
"A feeling of calm, glowing radiance that flows through and around you"
Reiki is, simply put, the channeling of energy from one
person to another in order to receive health and wellness benefits. By channeling this energy in a guided
session, patients become more relaxed, less anxious and stressed, and feel
relief from physical and emotional pain.
Reiki can also help to remove energetic blocks that exacerbate symptoms of disease or physical ailments. Advocates of Reiki have often described the treatment as a feeling of
calm, glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Energy healing of this type has been used for
thousands of years in Asian culture and is gaining popularity in modern Western
culture. Reiki is not a religion and can
be used and experienced by anyone, regardless of cultural or religious beliefs.
NOTE: Reiki is not a remover of any disease or ailment. If any client suffers from chronic health issues, disease, or ailments, it is their responsibility to continue to see their medical doctor for such ailments. Reiki can be used as a healing tool but does not replace any medical modalities.
What to Expect During a Reiki Treatment
In order to perform a Reiki treatment, the practitioner may
ask the patient to lie on a massage table, fully clothed. Reiki can be performed in a seated or
standing position, but the flow of energy is thought to be more effective when
the recipient is lying down.
Master will use a series of hand positions either touching or hovering just
above the patient in order to channel energy to that particular part of the
body. The hand placements are held for
various periods of time, usually not to exceed ten minutes per location. A typical session lasts between 45 and 90
minutes with areas of focus normally including stomach, feet, and the head/neck
Clients are encouraged to add a Reiki session to any skin care or massage service. Session times start at 15 minutes for $20. The sense of well being experienced will be well worth the extra time.
DO YOU NEED REIKI THERAPY?
When was the last time you felt good, really good? Feeling
out of alignment is like floating outside of your own head. Life is happening,

conditions in the body that develop into pain, emotional stress, and energy
If you’re tired of feeling this way,
you may experience extreme benefit from Reiki Therapy. The following is a list
of common symptoms that can be treated through Reiki therapy:

Fear and doubt
INCORPORATING REIKI AND ENERGY HEALING INTO MASSAGE
Energy blockages can occur at any location within the
body. When a blockage of energy occurs,
patients may experience sluggishness and a dramatic lack of energy.
If a blockage exists, the body is less capable of removing
toxins and cleansing itself. An example
of a blockage that may occur is the swelling of joints due the lack of energy
flow. Joints may become inflamed and
sensitive to the touch. Using energy
healing like Reiki therapy helps to clear blockages and allows blood and
energy to resume normal flow through the joint, thus reducing or eliminating
the pain and swelling.
