Are you chronically tired, stressed, or anxious? Consider booking reiki treatments to heal and restore your well-being.

Reiki is a natural energy healing technique rooted in ancient Tibetan Buddhism. In the 1800s, Mikao Usai, the son of a wealthy Buddhist family, was educated at a Buddhist monastery. He was drawn to learn about medicine in addition to theology. As an adult, Dr. Mikao Usai wanted to learn about healing practices. He was said to be particularly interested in laying on of hands, which would have physical, psychological, and faith-inspired benefits that could transcend particular religious beliefs. He traveled extensively and learned about healing practices in various places.

In his later years, Dr. Mikao Usai returned to living at a monastery. This time as a Buddhist monk. After fasting and praying, he was inspired to establish what became known as Usai Reiki. His clinic in Kyoto became known for energy-based healing. The practice of reiki has gradually spread, with reiki masters trained worldwide.

Reiki uses gentle touch to help with relaxation, stress reduction, and calming anxiety. The idea is that it is possible to “adjust” the energy fields within the human body through touch, clearing blockages or imbalances that contribute to mental or physical issues. Additionally, a Reiki master can offer healthy reiki energy to help promote healing in others.

Many people who have reiki treatments describe them as relaxing and even soothing. Some people experience goosebumps or tingling sensations. Others describe feeling cool or warm as the energy flows. It’s not unusual for reiki treatments to make people so relaxed that they yawn and feel sleepy.

Since the early days of Usai reiki, people have sought reiki to complement medical treatment and other traditional remedies for ailments and illnesses. Many consider reiki a helpful alternative medical treatment for various conditions, including insomnia, high blood pressure, pain, and anxiety. It has also been recognized for boosting the immune system.
