Reiki refers to the energy that makes you human, the essence of who you are. Reiki also refers to a system of practices that includes hands-on and remote healing sessions, which is often what people think of when they think of Reiki.
The most common effects people report after a Reiki session are a decrease in stress and pain, but the possibilities are too many to list. Reiki healing sessions support overall balance and a connection to the energy that is your true self, impacting your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. I currently offer Remote Reiki sessions, and you can read more about them here. I also teach Reiki courses that emphasize direct experience as a tool to develop a stronger connection to your true self.
