What Is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by hovering the hands over the body, and also "laying on hands". Reiki is based on the belief that an unseen "life force energy", or chi, flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress or anxiety. If it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Reiki translates directly as "spiritually guided life force energy". The method of reiki used around the world today was developed by Dr. Mikao Usui. It is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that can benefit everyone. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. The fundamental principal of reiki is that it can do no harm, and only transmits positive, healing energy.

Receivers of reiki generally describe a warm, tingling feeling where the reiki is being transmitted, and often report "seeing colors", which can be attributed to shifting energies. At Blue Lotus Massage Therapy, reiki can be given as a separate treatment, and can also be incorporated into any massage, upon request, at no additional charge.
