What is Reiki?
The Holistic Approach
Definition: Reiki is a form of Japanese Energy Healing. "Rei" translates to "universal," and "Ki" means "life force energy." This energy is sometimes called bioenergy or intelligent living energy. A reiki practitioner acts as a vessel, and channels universal life force energy from the Source into the receiver. A healer in training goes through several "attunements" to this energy to make the process possible.
It is very similar to the Christian "laying on hands," but is not attached to any specific religious practice. Many people seek the treatment as a spiritual development aide, since common benefits include clarity of mind, relief of emotional stress and trauma, and feelings of lightness or euphoria.
What to Expect
Reiki is relaxing and uplifting. Expect to enter a state of conscious deep rest, in which you are aware of everything around you, but your body is deeply relaxed as if in sleep. It is not uncommon to actually fall asleep. In a typical session, the receiver lies down in a comfortable position with the intention to receive healing. the therapist begins by scanning the client's body for energetic malalignments or blockages, focusing on the chakras, then systematically works their way from head to toe, sometimes hovering above, sometimes laying hands gently on the client.
Many people experience a warming sensation, and subtle physical sensations akin to energy moving through the body. Some will be more sensitive to the energy than others, so intensity will vary. However, the experience is never negative or harmful, and the same benefit should be received regardless of personal sensation experienced. After the session, you can expect to feel more relaxed with a lifted mood, and like the stressors in your life have released their grip a bit. Many say if feels like a weight has been lifted from their shoulders, and that even their bodies feel less achy or sore.
Stress is No Big Deal... Right?
Wrong. Vast amounts of research have accumulated to support the fact that stress is just plain bad for you. Long term effects include weakened immune system, early appearance of aging, increased risk for disease and mental illness, lack of emotional control, and even poor dental health!

What do we mean by "holistic," anyway? Here's the definition that Google brings up:
Holistic medicine or healing seeks to examine the body as a whole, the interconnectedness of all it's parts and how they work together to create a state of health-- of dynamic equilibrium. Holistic medicine aims to heal from the root cause of the illness (and is therefore preventative in nature as well), while western medicine wants mainly to conceal the symptoms of your illness without addressing the reason is occurred or how to actually fix it. When you take a painkiller for example, it works on the pain receptors in your brain, disabling them to a degree. The cause of your pain is still there, the signals are even still firing, you've just asked your brain to ignore it for a while. If you have chronic pain, you've just become reliant on a medication.
Reiki healing or massage therapy is just one piece of the puzzle of holistic healing. You as the client must take your health into your own hands when you get off the massage table if you want to create lasting positive change. The best healthcare has been and will always be a diet which delivers the body's necessary nutrients without dumping an excess of toxins, and an exercise regimen to keep your physical body conditioned.
Food is healthcare.
Medicine is sickcare.
