What is Reiki?
Reiki is a gentle form of hands-on healing, created in Japan in the early days of the 20th century. It is both a therapeutic and a spiritual practice.
Rei-ki translates as Universal Energy. Reiki gently helps us recalibrate to our own intrinsic state of balance and well-being. When balanced, the body can access its own healing ability.
Many people describe Reiki sessions as soothing and comforting. And Reiki can also be very powerful. It can help with pain relief, chronic illness, and post-surgical recovery, mental and emotional challenges and much more. It is an excellent complement to traditional medical and mental health therapies.
Anyone can learn Reiki and practice on themselves and their loved ones, including pets. It is easy to learn, and accessible throughout our life time. One of the early teachers of Reiki, Mrs. Takata, said she wanted to make Reiki more common than aspirin.
That sums up the aspirations of Central Vermont Reiki. Reiki is a gift everyone deserves!
