What is Reiki?

Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui in Japan in the 1920s. It is a relaxing form of healing therapy that is applied through noninvasive, nonmanipulative gentle touch.

Reiki is a safe and gentle “complementary” therapy that activates the parasympathetic nervous system to heal body and mind.

What does Reiki feel like?

Most people leave a Reiki therapy session feeling very relaxed. A qualitative study found that during a Reiki treatment participants felt “dreamy,” “safe,” “secure,” and “more grounded”

A study of nurses who use Reiki therapy for self-care found that the nurses used Reiki therapy during their workday to feel more calm, centered, and more able to care for others

An Important Reminder

Reiki should be used alongside (not instead of) existing medications or treatment prescribed to you by a healthcare professional.
