The Gentle Touch of Reiki

by Kimberly Rogers, CR, WCMT and NCMTB 

Reiki (pronounced "Ray-Key") is the gentle art of laying on of hands. The Reiki practitioner works with the subtle energy field of the client, transferring energy to bring the body back into balance. Reiki can be used when other modalities (example: massage therapy, chiropractic, etc.) are contraindicated. Reiki can be used to decrease pain, energize or relax the body, etc. It has been successfully used with cancer patients to decrease nausea after chemo treatments. I often incorporate Reiki energy during a massage therapy session to loosen tight muscles or to relax a stressed-out client.

Reiki is an ancient form of healing, long forgotten, and then rediscovered in Japan in the late 1800's by a Dr. Mikao Usui. Dr. Usui was interested in learning how Jesus and his disciples could heal by simply laying hands upon the sick. He traveled the world; studying ancient texts to find the healing technique he called Reiki ("Rei" stands for 'universal' and "ki" means 'Life Force').

Many clients say that a Reiki session is hard to describe, you "just have to experience it." This is true; each Reiki experience is unique and different. It can be powerful and energizing or soothing and relaxing. It depends upon the goals of the client. There are many books, articles, videos, etc. about Reiki and healing.
