Reiki: “Try It. You Might Like It.”

Your Bridge to Health; Promoting Optimal Wellness for Mind, Body and Spirit

Your Bridge to Health; Promoting Optimal Wellness for Mind, Body and Spirit

Remember the old cereal commercial with the little boy Mikey? “Try It. You Might Like It.”

Reiki Photo DTW Stock Photo with © 2015

Reiki Ryoho is a Japanese Healing Method/Art that began in Japan in 1922 with Founder USUI Mikao Sensei. Reiki (ray-key) sessions are offered through light (or non) touch and without manipulation. With the recipient fully clothed, either lying or seated. Sessions generally create a relaxation response with potential benefits of:

  • relief of tension (emotional and physical)
  • increased calm
  • improved comfort
  • improved sleep
  • a greater sense of inner peace.

Each reiki session is unique in how it is experienced. Due to its ease of use, gentle nature and quick relaxation response, many hospitals and healthcare settings incorporate Reiki in oncology, rehabilitation, pain management, and hospice settings. Generally, those receiving a reiki session report a general sense of calmness afterwards, along with varied experiences of sensation (warmth the most common.)  One client reports, “Every session is different. And every session is wonderful.” 

~ Reiki can best be described through the personal experience of a session. ~

During a session, recipients are fully clothed and can lie down or sit for their sessions. Preliminary search indicates that a session of Reiki can promote relaxation and potentially decrease stress, increase calm, and improve comfort. More information on Reiki and other integrative therapies can be found at the National Center Complementary and Integrative Health (www.nccih.gov.)
