The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75%-95% of all visits to doctors are the results of reaction to stress. They call stress "America's #1 Health Problem" and it has been linked to increasingly common health problems including diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure and infertility. Continual stress hinders the body's natural ability to repair itself. Reiki can help unblock the body's energetic pathways and support your natural healing process.
15% of over 800 American hospitals offered Reiki as a part of hospital services in 2007 (1).This number is even larger today, with hospitals incorporating Reiki into treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention programs. Why? Because it works.
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese healing technique. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words: Rei can be translated as "spiritual guided" and Ki is "life force energy." So Reiki literally means "spiritual guided life force energy." Reiki practitioners are attuned to and then trained in the application of Reiki Energy. We direct this energy during a Reiki session in order to help your body restore energy balance and vitality by relieving the physical and emotional effects of unrelieved stress.
Science is now recognizing some of the physical components of the work as BioEnergetics. While shifting the electromagnetics of our biofield sounds like the work of science-fiction, a number of experiments continue to show that Reiki is a powerful aid in physical healing. In hospital and controlled settings, Reiki has been proven to improve sleep, reduce pain, reduce nausea, reduce heart rate and improve relaxation in Cancer rehabilitation, and support the body process of healing in acute & chronic illness(2).
I have spoken to doctors, nurses, and patients who have found Reiki to be a powerful support in healing medical challenges such as asthma, broken bones, old sports injuries, and fibromyalgia. While Reiki is not a substitute for all forms of medicine(3), studies and personal experience show it to be a life-changing complimentary therapy.
Reiki is absolutely painless. During a treatment, clients are asked to sit back and relax. Simply doing that can sometimes be the most difficult thing of all, and yet my personal belief is that the relaxed open state allows you to receive the Reiki even more clearly.

Reiki in my office is done fully clothed. Depending on the client I will either lay my hands gently over the key Reiki points or they will hover just above. I feel it is important for all of my clients to feel comfortable during their session, and I encourage questions about the process. See Rates and Services for more details.
