Usui/Tibetan Reiki changed my life. Shortly after graduating from Massage school, I met my first Usui/Tibetan Reiki Master who possessed such a peaceful calm that I knew I wanted to know more. While Reiki is rapidly becoming more mainstream (even Dr. Oz is touting its amazing benefits)…Let me explain for those who haven't heard of Reiki, or don't quite know what it is. Reiki is a form of energy healing. The word Reiki actually means "universal energy". It is what we are all made up of. Reiki practitioners are trained and gifted with the ability to access this universal energy, and share it with others for the purposes of relaxation and healing—and if desired, for spiritual growth My personal & professional experience tells me that there is not a person, a condition, animal, or situation that would not benefit from Reiki in some way. Whether the intention is for is a direct healing, or just to create a relaxed, nourished energetic state that supports change, either one is a desirable outcome!
