Welcome to the art and science of energy healing

During a session, in which the recipient is fully clothed, hands are lightly placed on or held over the body as energy is transmitted from the practicioner to the recipient.

Energy healing is a natural healing modality that soothes the nervous system, promotes relaxation and reduces sensations of stress. Also called “hand’s on healing,” the practice has been enjoyed by humans for thousands of years. Scientific research is evaluating and validating the effectiveness of this healing modality.*

Energy healing, including the Japanese healing art of Reiki, is non-invasive, holistic, drugless healing modality which treats the whole person–the physical body as well as the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of a person. 

Energy healing has been shown to improve the results of some medical treatments, acting to reduce negative side effects, shorten healing time and reduce or eliminate pain. Furthermore, these therapies have been shown to reduce stress, decrease anxiety, reduce PTSD symptoms, alleviate depression and help create optimism.*

Many medical centers, cancer treatment centers and hospice care organizations now offer Reiki and other bio-field therapies as part of—or a complement to—mainstream care.

Energy healing and Reiki (or “hands-on healing”) has ancient roots, and can also be understood through the cutting-edge sciences of quantum physics, cardio-neurology and epigenetics. Specifically, the practitioner uses their mind-body as an instrument of consciousness to transmit life-force energy to the body of the receiver. “Reiki” means “universal life force energy.” It is this energy that is transferred, through the palms of the practitioner to the patient, in order to facilitate healing and well-being on a mental, emotional and/or physical level.
