Reiki is a simple, effective method of spiritual development and natural health promotion which originated in Japan.

In a Reiki session, spiritual healing energy is made available to the client, promoting a feeling of calm, ease and restored vitality. Similar to the “laying on of hands”, Reiki energy is passed to the recipient primarily through the hands and is based on the idea that the state of the essential life force energy in our bodies is revealed in positive health or illness.

Our energy has an optimum natural balance and flow and we are at risk to develop illness when it is low or out of balance. Reiki restores the natural balance of the energy which animates the body, promotes healing on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels, is natural and complements other treatment methods.

The word Reiki is translated as “spiritual energy” and the benefits are seen as coming from God or the Divine, rather than from the practitioner. Although Reiki is not affiliated with any religion, it is a spiritual practice for the practitioner and encourages positive attitude, lifestyle and practices, including meditation. The ability to access and share Reiki with others comes from Reiju (spiritual blessings), also called "attunements" and through daily spiritual practice. 

Mikao Usui developed and taught Reiki in the early 1900’s in Japan and it was brought to the United States by Hawayo Takata, a student of one of his later students, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi. Many Reiki Masters in the United States were trained by someone who originally was trained by Mrs. Takata and most teach a mix of new age techniques, concepts from Indian practices such as the chakras, and information from Hayashi and Takata- style Reiki and what is called Tibetan Reiki, developed by Arthur Robinson. 

Over time, more Reiki masters are learning and utilizing the original Japanese healing techniques taught by Usui and which are still practiced in Japan. Dylan strives to give Reiki trainings that are well grounded in traditional Usui Reiki practices and to clarify the different styles of Western practices in use in the US today.

What you can expect from your Reiki session:

The client remains fully clothed as they relax onto a treatment table or sit in a chair while the practitioner uses standard hand placements to send the energy into areas where it is needed. The recipient may feel very relaxed, fall asleep or move into a deeply meditative state, as does the practitioner. Although we cannot say with certainty how Reiki works, the results as reported by many people who have received it have been quite remarkable. The healing energy of Reiki is said to go where the client most needs it and has many reported benefits which include:

• Deep relaxation and stress reduction
• Increased vitality and mental clarity
• Improved immune function and resistance to illness
• Reduced symptoms of chronic illness, stress, depression and anxiety
