What is Reiki Medicine?

What is Reiki?

Modern medicine is now recognizing what the ancients have always known: there is a unified field of energy that makes up everything. There is no point at which your energy ends and the energy of another person, thing or thought begins. Energy can be felt, though it is invisible. Ancient healers understood that this invisible force has a profound effect on our well-being. When negative energy in the form of thoughts or emotions becomes dominant in our energy field, it can manifest as psychological or physical ailments.  


Reiki practitioners attune to energetic patterns and identify blockages. We transmit positive energy and clear blockages to promote the free flow of energy, allowing the body to rest and heal.


The sacred work of Reiki is the recognition of our energy anatomy and a powerful way to transform your energetic being.

It all starts here. It starts with you.

Benefits of Reiki Medicine

Reiki works because it operates on the principle that the human body is its own best healer. By activating the parasympathetic nervous system, Reiki encourages deep relaxation so the body can prioritize recovery, healing, and restoration. 


How does this healing occur?


In each Reiki session, heart rate and blood pressure decrease while energy and circulation are redirected to the internal organs, stimulating digestion. The immune system can relax and revert its energies from “triage” mode or short-term survival, to long-term health rather.


As a non-invasive healing practice, Reiki is completely safe for the elderly, immunocompromised, and even children. Sessions for pets are also available.

Regular Reiki Clients Report:


  • Reduces anxiety

  • Better sleep

  • Improved circulation

  • Elevated mood

  • Emotional equilibrium (especially for those suffering from PMS and menopause symptoms)

  • Improved focus

  • Feelings of groundedness and relaxation

  • Reduced reliance on pain medication

  • Emotional Trauma

  • Life Transitions


Besides these physical benefits, Reiki promotes deep introspection and greater self-awareness. Patients report feeling more alignment in their work, life, and self-image as well as improved self-esteem. Best of all, Reiki complements medical treatments and other therapies by actually accelerating healing. 


Right from the first discovery call, I hold space for my clients so that they can be open about their vulnerabilities and fears. I keep an open channel of communication where I focus on active listening without rushing to provide answers. Everything shared in my sessions is protected by a code of confidentiality.

  • What Healing Modalities Do You Use?
    Reiki Reiki is a stress reduction and relaxation technique that supports the bodies natural abilities to heal itself. The technique was developed in Japan and is administered by the laying on of hands. It is based on the idea that all living things have a special energy flowing through them called life energy. When your life energy is high, you'll feel strong and confident, you are more relaxed and centered and less likely to get sick. When it is low, you'll often feel tired, you will be more easily affected by stress and less resistant to illness. Jin Shin Jytsu Jin Shin Jyutsu® is an ancient healing art of harmonizing the body through gentle touch, very similar to Reiki. It is a 3,000-year-old healing art originating from Japan. Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) is a gentle form of acupressure therapy that uses light finger pressure over specific points on the body while fully clothed. JSJ restores the flow of energy, which may be blocked due to illness or pain. JSJ is beneficial for a variety of conditions including acute and chronic pain, increasing immune function, eliminating fatigue, reducing stress, and improving digestion. I use a combination of JSJ along with Reiki in my practice. The combination has proven remarkable results. Cupping Cupping has been around for thousands of years and traces its roots to ancient Chinese and Egyptian medicine. Cupping was documented in one of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, Ebers Papyrus, which was written in 1550 BC. During a cupping session, I first massage the area; then I place round cups directly on your skin. The cup is a silicone base and is squeezed to create a suction; then I glide them on the skin. The cups are then left on your skin for several minutes. It is believed that the suction created by the cup encourages blood flow—and this increased circulation may promote healing and reduce pain. The primary side effects of cupping are bruising and skin irritation. Both should heal on their own in 7-10 days. (Add on a 30 min. session for $50 to any service/ Cupping with back massage 45 min/$85) Tuning Forks Tuning forks are used for healing because of their ability to emit vibrations and frequencies. Striking a tuning fork vibrates the fork and the surrounding air space, creating a frequency that can be harnessed to increase our bodies’ ability to heal holistically. Many Energy Healing practitioners include tuning forks in their practice to provide sound and vibrational healing therapy. This alternative form of therapy applies specific pitches, sounds, and vibrations to relieve stress, relieve pain, and bring about homeostasis within the body. Practitioners use tuning forks to treat children and adults alike. Breathwork Breathwork exercises teach you to manipulate your breathing rate and depth with the goal of bringing awareness to your breath and ultimately providing the same benefits you might get from a meditative practice. During breathwork you intentionally change your breathing pattern. People who practice breathwork describe feeling tingling sensations throughout their body, feelings of clarity, alertness, increased mind-body connection and even emotional purging. Visualization Imagining in your mind the things that you want in your life. Visualization is simply training your mind. Some benefits from practicing visualization include: decrease in anxiety, helps you become more aware of your goals and what you want, and helps lower stress levels.
  • What is Distance Reiki Healing
    Distance Reiki is just as effective and impactful as an in-person session. Reiki works through the manipulation of energy not the physical body; therefore, you don’t have to be in proximity to receive an effective treatment. This technique is also used for group healing and to send healing energy to a specific place where many people are impacted by a traumatic experience. This is an excellent support for staying healthy and grounded during these uncertain times, or when you simply want to squeeze a quick treatment into your busy schedule.
  • How does Reiki Medicine work?
    When you sustain an injury – be it mental, emotional, or physical – energy stagnates at a specific point in the body. Think of it like energetic scar tissue, or like a knot in muscle. These energy blockages can lead to further illness. Reiki heals by “massaging” these knots loose. A practitioner performs Reiki by placing her hands just above the body or gently and directly on the body. The practitioner maintains a meditative presence and allows the healing energy to flow through her to wherever these energetic knots might be. Most clients report feeling deeply relaxed and restful during and after a session. Some even fall asleep! Others may experience warmth, coolness, or tingling sensations throughout the session as different chakras in the body are activated. Each person experiences the healing energy of Reiki differently, because Reiki meets your body’s unique needs.
  • What makes Energy Medicine “Sacred”?
    When practicing Energy Medicine I go into a deep meditative state and send a prayer for healing by connecting to the divine energy. I receive messages from the divine and I transmit to your body to aid in the release of stagnant emotional or physical blockages. These messages come in the form of images, thoughts, or feelings. This guidance and healing energy from the divine makes the session Sacred Energy Medicine.
  • Why we need Reiki Medicine more than ever.
    Your body is designed to heal itself. But in a world with so much stress, trauma, stimulation, and isolation, our bodies are working round the clock just to reach equilibrium. Our sympathetic nervous systems (SMS) are in a perpetual “fight or flight” response, leaving little time for healing and restoration. Reiki restores balance to the mind, body, and spirit by awakening the parasympathetic nervous (PMS) system and activating the body to heal itself. Practitioners frequently perform Reiki to support stress reduction, relaxation, serenity, well-being, self-esteem, and faster recovery from illness or injury. These days, we could all use a lot more healing. That’s why I offer distance and house call sessions. Some people may find that confusing, but you see, Reiki is not a matter of transferring my energy to you. I merely call attention to the life energy around and within you so that you can see it more clearly, and feel it more deeply. Energy has no limits.
  • How can I get the most out of a session?
    I recommend that patients be mindful of their emotions, mood shifts, and any other notable response to the practice. Make notes in between sessions if this helps you remember so that we can talk about it in the next scheduled session. I can also schedule an impromptu session for special circumstances. I would urge you to be as honest and genuine about your experience as possible. This helps us work together to address the health challenges you face.
  • Is Reiki only for women?
    Not at all. There are Reiki practitioners and beneficiaries among men, women, and other genders. It is a practice of healing that helps anyone de-stress, build confidence, and balance within their body. It helps dissipate stress among a wide range of ages for all sexes. Reiki finds patronage among a lot of women and those who identify as women because it offers great relief from PMS, hormonal imbalance due to pregnancy, and the various stages of peri to post-menopause.
  • I’m too busy. Should I wait to make an appointment?
    Too many people wait until they have more time, more energy, more money to take care of themselves. What they don’t realize is that carving out a little time to take care of their bodies and minds could have a profound effect on their happiness, relationships, productivity, and so much more. I encourage you to schedule a discovery call and learn how Energy Medicine might create more space for joy in your busy life.
  • Will Energy Medicine interfere with my medical treatment?
    Reiki Energy Medicine does not interfere with medical treatments. In fact, energy healing is a great complement to medical treatment and other health practices because it strengthens and supports your body’s natural defense mechanisms.
