What is Reiki?



Reiki is the name given to a natural healing method for body and mind that originated in Japan during the 19th century.  Based on the premise that a “universal life force energy” is present both in and around us, Reiki is “channeled” through the practitioner to affect the recipient on any level:  physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.  While it has a spiritual aspect and can enhance an individual’s spiritual practice, Reiki is not a religion having no doctrine or creed.  Reiki will always work toward your highest and best good and can be safely used with any other medical treatment.  Anyone can learn Reiki and it can be self-administered.  The recipient does not have to be present with the practitioner; Reiki can be sent over a distance or through time.  The recipient does not have to be human…animals/pets, plants and electronics respond positively to Reiki.

What to Expect in a Session


During a Reiki session, the recipient is fully clothed and can be seated, reclining or laying down.  Reiki is administered through the gentle laying of hands.  If an individual does not like to be touched, it can be administered with the hands hovering 3-6 inches above the body.  Individual experiences vary.  A Reiki session can elicit feelings of peace, relaxation and well-being.  You could experience changes in temperature, colors, images, sounds, or nothing at all.  The effects of Reiki can be immediate or could take some time to develop and continue after the session has been completed.

  • Each person must complete a health history prior to the first session.
  • Each session begins at the appointed time and continues for the allotted time.  Plan to arrive 5-10 minutes early to allow time to update Christine on your needs/goals.  Additionally, plan to allow time to get off the table and to share feedback on the session with Christine.
  • Twenty-four hour notice is required for cancellations with the exception of emergencies and illness.  Less than 24 hour notice will result in the client being responsible for the amount of the session unless the appointment is filled.
  • There are no contraindications to receiving Reiki, however, you should consider rescheduling or scheduling a distance session if you develop a condition that is contagious and could put the practitioner at risk of getting ill.
