What is Reiki?

As defined by the The International Center for Reiki Training:

  • Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.  If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

  • A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. 

  • Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

  • Our certified reiki Masters deliver this treatment with the most mindful care and intention.

  • We are committed to being the purest conduit for reiki.

A new Reiki Energy 

Holy Fire Reiki is a new form of Reiki that was introduced about three years ago by the ICRT. It is both powerful and gentle and provides purification, healing, empowerment and guidance. 

Holy Fire energy is noticeably more refined and comes from a higher level of consciousness. Some of the qualities students have experienced include:

  • Works continuously even when not thinking about it and spontaneously heals issues as they come up.
  • Always respects free will.
  • Heals deeply and quickly without distress.
  • Heals relationships and interactions with others.
  • Releases worry and replaces it with a sense of safety in a most pronounced way.
  • Spontaneously provides guidance that is palatable for every level of life experience.
  • Tends to develop all the personality traits that are healthy for a person to have such as love of self and others, kindness, patience, confidence, vitality, enthusiasm, optimism, trust, joy, peace and so forth.
  • One of the more wonderful effects is a feeling of being loved. This is a deep and refined feeling that is very nurturing.
  • Once received, it continues to develop itself to be more evolved and effective.

These qualities are present in our Reiki I&II Classes.

Reiki Clearing Session

This is a special Intention Healing Session that targets issues and/or concerns.

"The main reason people are not in optimum health is because they attract or create blocks to the flow of life energy within themselves.  These blocks are usually made of ideas, beliefs, and emotions that are opposed to the person's maximum well-being. They are usually created because of misunderstandings about how to get one's needs met in a healthy way.  Blocks to life energy are made of negative ki and usually take on a particular shape and lodge themselves in or around the organs of the body or in the chakras or aura.  These negative energy blocks can cause health problems or difficulties in life.  Once removed, the life energy returns to its normal, healthy flow. Reiki Clearing is a process that will assist in the healing of any problem or difficulty including emotional difficulties, relationship problems, addictions, spiritual problems as well as physical health problems. 

We all have dormant abilities inside ourselves waiting to be used. The ability to heal ourselves and each other is one of those abilities.  It is simply a matter of claiming your power and developing the skill to use it.  Reiki Clearing is a tool that allows you take charge of your inner power and use it to heal."- Borrowed from the International Center for Reiki Training Manual

* If you have a physical or psychological problems please check with your licensed health care provider. 

Session Fee please see our service page.


Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel” or “disc.” The body’s seven main chakras sit at the intersection of the vital energy channels that are said to run along the spinal column. When our chakras are cleansed and balanced, our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies are better able to function at their optimal levels.

Per your preference we are able to incorporate Chakra Balancing to your Reiki treatments. Additionally we offer guidance to opening and elevating blockages in your chakra energy centers using various techniques.
