What is Reiki?


USUI REIKI:  Reiki is a very gentle and profound healing touch technique.  Reiki is a system of healing and spiritual development that has grown in popularity and success worldwide.  Reiki promotes self-healing of your physical health, well-being of the mind, emotions and spirit. It is a non-intrusive hands-on practice that is used side by side with conventional medicine.  Reiki is being used in most of the major leading hospitals in the country.  Reiki is sometimes called energy medicine and is recognized and used as a CAM (complimentary and alternative medicine) therapy in traditional medical settings without contra indications. 


Reiki is the Japanese word for “Universal Life Force Energy”.  When “Rei” and “Ki” are defined in two component parts: ‘Rei” is universal, transcendental spirit, mysterious power, essence.  “Ki” is the vital life force energy, similar to Chi of Chinese acupuncture, Light to Christians, and Bioplasmic Energy to some researchers. Reiki is not a religion, as it holds no creed or doctrine.


We are all born with energy (Universal Life Force Energy). It is what holds us together and keeps us functioning on all levels.  Reiki allows us to heal the emotional, mental and physical body. Our bodies capture our emotions and cause illness and disease. (See Reiki Services)  You can experience Reiki as a client receiving a treatment or you can learn how to utilize this energy by taking a class- or both!  It is easy and simple to learn. Many of my students practice Reiki on themselves every day to achieve a more balanced and healthy life.


What makes Reiki different from other healing methods is the attunement process which the student experiences in the various levels of Reiki classes.  A person who has been taught Reiki has a very ancient technology for fine tuning the physical and etheric bodies to a higher vibratory level and has the ability to channel higher amounts of Universal Life Force Energy. (See Classes)


KARUNA REIKI®:  Karuna Reiki® evolved out of Usui and Tibetan Reiki.  This form of Reiki utilizes higher frequencies of energy. Karuna Reiki® is only taught to people who are already Reiki Masters. 


Karuna Reiki® can be defined as the Reiki of Compassion.  The word Karuna is a Sanskrit word.  It is translated to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could also be translated as “compassionate action”.  


Martha uses this technique along with Usui Reiki, and many of her clients have experienced their treatments as having stronger and deeper healing energies.
