What is Usui Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) translates into spiritually guided (Rei) life force energy (ki). Reiki is a hands-on energy practice designed to enhance the flow of universal life-force energy within the receiver, resulting in feelings of renewal and enhanced well-being. Devised in the early 1900's (by Dr. Mikao Usui of Japan), this healing modality works with the body's innate ability to heal energetic blocks that often result in illness.

Reiki energy has an intelligence of its own, providing whatever is required for a session in service to healing. As a practitioner, I do not give away my own energy nor do I use my Will to direct a session. Instead, I act as a conduit, channeling universal life-force energy to my client, while acting in support of their healing process.

How does it work?

Universal life-force energy animates all of life. We are alive because of it. When it is flowing through us unimpeded we feel vital and alive. When blocks exist we feel tired, insecure, indecisive, and often unwell physically, mentally, emotionally, and/or spiritually. Stress is a primary contributor to the development of such blocks. It activates negative patterns and fears that impact the flow of life-force energy in and through our systems. Reiki helps to shift and heal these blocks thereby aiding the body and the energetic system to regenerate, contributing to an enhanced sense of well-being.

How it supports the coaching process

Reiki works with the body to relax, re-energize and shift energetic blocks that often prevent one from seeing clearly the inner nature of things. Alone or as an adjunct to coaching, Reiki works to aid one in finding balance and clarity.

What to expect in a Reiki session

Reiki is an extremely relaxing and profoundly nurturing practice that often results in a deeply meditative state or trance. In this sleep-like state, clients surrender easily to the healing nature of Reiki energy resulting in physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual levels of healing.

They begin the session resting on their back, ending the session resting in the prone position (on their stomachs). Each session begins with a brief guided visualization to aid clients in their efforts to relax and to become fully present. During the session, the practitioner places their hands at various positions on or near the body which correspond with energy centers called chakras. The length of time at any given position will vary with each person and with any given day, as our needs are constantly shifting in response to life events. The session ends with a gentle return to present awareness, ensuring that the client is grounded and able to resume their activities of daily living. Discussion regarding the experience may or may not take place. This is explored at the time of the session.
