Energy Work

Reiki, an energy restoration system, was developed in Japan over 100 years ago by Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki Practitioners have been trained to use soothing touch to promote deep states of relaxation. Reiki brings a sense of peace to the mind, body, and spirit.

These deep states of relaxation stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system which brings the body to rest after stressful situations. Rest is necessary to counteract stress, one of the most common causes of disease. While at rest the body is able to restore tissues and nourish cells. The parasympathetic response initiates the body’s ability to heal itself.

Reiki is an excellent compliment to medical treatments. The gentle energy has been proven effective with post-operative patients. It is beneficial to those recovering from illness or injury. It has been used in hospitals to assist patients in the process of chemotherapy.

Medical care should not be replaced with Reiki. Some conditions require a physician’s treatment. It is unethical for a Reiki practitioner to diagnose a condition, prescribe medications, or perform any medical treatment. Seeking a licensed health care physician is recommended for any condition.

Every individual responds differently to Reiki energy. It may provide the relief you are seeking or it may not. Simply allowing the body to take control and restore itself can be a powerful experience. Reiki energy has been described as compassionate, nurturing, and spiritual.
