What the Heck is Reiki?

Updated: Jan 8, 2023

I get asked a lot, “What is Reiki?” Reiki is a type of energy healing. It is used to relax the body, mind, and spirit. It grounds and centers you. When you are in a deeply relaxed state, and your energy is flowing the way it is meant to, you are able to heal.

Reiki is a gentle healing modality that will, at the very least, leave you feeling relaxed and grounded in your body. You may feel hot or cold sensations, you may see colors. You may feel any number of emotions. When you are done you will most likely feel lighter and very relaxed.

Reiki can be done in person or over a distance. The idea of distance reiki can be difficult to wrap your head around. It can be explained by quantum physics, but we aren’t going to go there, at least not today. For a more straightforward analogy, we can look at prayer. If someone needs help to heal, we pray for them. We don’t need to be with them to pray for them. Distance reiki works just like sending a healing prayer to someone.

Reiki can help with stress reduction, insomnia, and pain, among other things. More and more large hospital systems are offering reiki to patients, primarily surgical and cancer patients. They are finding patients need fewer pain medications, have less stress, anxiety, and depression, and heal faster. In my own practice, I have seen similar results.

There is so much more I could tell you about Reiki and energy healing, but we’ll save that for another post. If you have any questions or want to know if Reiki is right for you, please contact me or book a free discovery call.
