What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to your body, improving the flow and balance of your energy to support healing.

Mikao Usui developed reiki in the early 1900s, deriving the term from the Japanese words rei, meaning “universal,” and ki, which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Now, reiki is used all over the world, including in hospitals and hospices, to complement other forms of health treatments.

Can Reiki replace traditional treatments?

No. Reiki treatment should not be used as a substitute for the consultation of a physician or a psychotherapist.

How does Reiki work?

Reiki practitioners act as a conduit between you and the source of the universal life force energy. The energy flows through the practitioner’s hands to you.

What does Reiki feel like?  

You may feel sensations like heat, tingling, coolness or pulsing where the Reiki practitioner has placed their hands or hovers their hands over your body. Some people may notice stomach noises or small muscle twitches. Others may not feel anything at all.

Most people feel very relaxed and peaceful during a reiki treatment, and many fall asleep during the process.




"My reiki session with Carole was amazing! It was the first time I've had a dowsing consultation and seeing it, as it confirmed what I already knew was a magical experience. I left the reiki session feeling more relaxed, in tune and ready for the week to come. Thanks so much Carole! You're truly gifted and a kind soul."   ~Giovanny

"WOW WOW WOW....  My first session with you was absolutely beautiful, thank you for making me feel comfortable, safe, grounded and allowing time for us to connect. I appreciated how you softly let me know what chakra you were working on and when you received a message. Carole you truly have a beautiful gift. I am looking forward to many more sessions with you. Thank you, Carole, for your loving light." ~ Heidi
