First, I want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope that everyone who reads and shares this Blog will prosper in Mind, Body and Spirit!! That is my intention and focus for 2016.  I am feeling a renewed energy, but wanted to explore ways that will keep me on my life journey with continued EXCITEMENT!!  When I was doing my research, I came across a modality called Reiki, which I have followed for many years and decided to fully engage myself in learning, so that I could possibly incorporate it into my practice.  So, I did some in depth research and then finally decided I had to have a open mind and explore the Pros and Cons of Reiki by taking the Reiki Practitioner training.  I can honestly say that I see the value of Reiki, now more than ever.  I plan to use it in my Massage Practice as a separate modality for both the Massage and Wellness areas, but in a way that I believe will have the best affect for my Clients.  This is what I found in my research and training......

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a word from the Japanese language, meaning “Guided Life Force Energy.”



Life energy, which makes up our thoughts, emotions, and consciousness, tends to be in all living things and connects us all. We all have places in our energy which become unbalanced, due to our very chaotic lifestyles and the extreme "fit in" conditioning in our society. We can be off balance due to stress, disease, pain, or emotional blocks, that leave us confused and weary about the future.

A Reiki Practitioner offers this life force energy to you thru entrainment which allows you to receive new energy where you are off balance, to help your body heal itself and rejuvenate.

Reiki does not require any religious belief in order to be effective. Being open to trying Reiki is all you need.

Reiki is not Meditation, Massage or Prayer. It is also not a Religion. But the one thing we can mostly all agree on, Practitioners and Clients alike, Reiki heals in ways that are simply hard to explain. 

Reiki isa calming and effective holistic technique for effortlessly receiving the life force energy you need to restore your mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. That is what I love most about the Reiki modality. 

Is Reiki Science or Hype?

Reiki is a therapy based on the electromagnetic biofield, or a type of energy field that “regulates everything from our cellular function to our nervous system,” says Shamini Jain, ​assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of California–San Diego. 

While the biofield itself is generally accepted – it “consists of things that we can measure like electromagnetic energy that actually emanates from us,” Jain says – biofield therapies such as Reiki and therapeutic touch are more controversial​ because they’re based on the idea of a “subtle” aspect of the biofield,​ which is harder to measure.

“It’s difficult for our Western science to wrap its mind around” because it’s not about popping pills, injecting needles or otherwise altering the body’s chemical composition, says Jain, a clinical psychologist who studies Integrative Medicine.​

Closing Thoughts....

In closing, although Reiki has its critics and to date no known medical risks, I want to be very clear it is not a substitute for conventional medicine, it is complementary and integrative medicine.​

BUT....The reason that I decided to add Reiki into my practice is, I am now convinced that Reiki, like Therapeutic Massage Therapy makes a positive, calming contribution to one's overall health and wellness! 

Most important, Reiki seems to bring clarity and peace of mind to people when they relax, open up and believe that healing truly begins within!! In a world that is so chaotic and a culture of "Do or Die", calming peace within can aid the Mind, Body and Spirit to a higher level of consciousness, where all healing prospers!  When you experience that balance of peace of mind, everything else on one's life journey is possible!! And that is what I LOVE about Reiki......PEACE OF MIND!!
