I received my Reiki Teacher.Master June 17, 2018
Reiki is a form of Universal Energy brought in by Mikao Usui in Japan (1865-1926). It effects may be likened to “meditation for the body” and is a truly holistic healing modality. Reiki can be incorporated within a bodywork practice as a holistic therapy and is not massage although it blends fluidly with massage. Reiki is a “skill touch therapy” with demonstrable effects in reducing stress through increased relaxation and diminishing levels of pain. It is offered in hospitals, nursing homes and hospices as well as in veterinary practices and animal shelter. I intend to incorporate Reiki in my sports massage work. Reiki is the subject of on-going scientific and medical research and is a segue for personal development, expanding intuition, deepening awareness of subtle energies and offering a way to relieve pain and suffering.
