About Reiki

Berkeley | Oakland | Reiki For Inner Peace | San Francisco Bay Area
Reiki is a form of biofield energy treatment of Japanese origin that is helpful on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels.  Many of my clients excitedly tell me of their significant physical pain relief and healing after receiving my Reiki treatment. Others report significant emotional pain relief and healing after Reiki treatment. Still others explain to me their spiritual insights and growth after receiving Reiki. Some of my clients tell me of their healing on all three levels.  At a minimum, the recipient finds the treatment very relaxing and rejuvenating.  Sometimes, he or she falls asleep and awakes feeling refreshed and recharged.
I invite you to read about some of the healing and other benefits that my clients have received from our sessions.  These client written recommendations are contained on the Testimonials pages of this website.

During a Reiki treatment, which usually last for about an hour, the practitioner places his  hands on or above particular places on a fully clothed client’s body, as is beneficial to attain the recipient’s goals, while the client relaxes on a massage table.  Safe touch is always followed.  The practitioner’s hands are never placed on portions of the client’s body that are inappropriate.  Reiki is not massage, since the practitioner’s hands are not drawn over the recipient’s skin. Reiki is not a religion. Rather, it is a method in which universal life-force energy is channeled through the practitioner to the recipient for his or her highest and best good.  Reiki is “intelligent energy”, since it goes to where the recipient needs it most.

Initially, some people who have never received Reiki may be skeptical that Reiki can be beneficial to them, and may think it is too “woo woo” to be for real.  I have never provided Reiki to anyone who after the treatment was not happy to have received it.  You do not have to “believe” in Reiki for it to be beneficial to you. Rather, all that is needed is a state of mind open to the possibility that it will be of help, and a desire for positive change.
