About Reiki

The word "Reiki" means Universal LifeForce Energy: the energy of Source and the energy that makes up everything. Reiki is energy, and the means by which we transfer and restore energy in ourselves and others. Reiki is a non-denominational, spiritual path of love and healing, for one's self and to assist others in their journeys. Simply put, Reiki energy is Love.

As a healing modality, Reiki is a form of energy work that allows individuals to release, revitalize, and heal, restoring harmony and balance. It works on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels for surface-to-soul-level healing. Reiki is a gentle but effective method for wellbeing, self-growth and self-transformation.

Reiki energy is transmitted from the universe to the recipient by a certified practitioner during a treatment or to one's self, if you have completed Reiki training and received attunements. The recipient's body actually draws in the energy it needs to heal and rebalance itself through the Reiki practitioner, who acts as a channel or conduit and can work with hands either on or off the body during the session.

Reiki treatments allow healing energy to flow into and through you, aiding in healing and transforming yourself. Reiki attunements take the healing one step further and help you in maintaining your personal energy levels, as well as providing a gentle and calming energy to others.


Many illnesses and dis-eases are physical manifestations of energy blockages in our bodies. Reiki works on more than one level of an issue and thus, assists us in releasing and healing beyond simply the physical or emotional.

Benefits of Reiki treatments may include, and are certainly not limited to:

~ improved clarity and focus
~ stress reduction
~ increased creativity
~ physical pain relief
~ release of suppressed emotions
~ sense of peace and harmony
~ alignment of self with path and purpose


The principles of Reiki are simple, and yet will change your life if truly followed...

Just for today, do not worry.
Just for today, do not anger.
Just for today, do your work honestly.
Just for today, live with the attitude of gratitude.
Just for today, show love and respect for every living thing.


With proper training and attunement from a certified Reiki teacher, anyone interested in becoming attuned to Reiki can open to this incredible energy flow.

Reiki energy is transferred from the teacher to the student through an empowerment (attunement) process which deepens the student's connection to Reiki directly from Source. Reiki energy refines one's energetic vibration to bring greater alignment with purpose and healing on all levels of one's being. It is truly a wonderful gift of Reiki that one can use it with others as well as receiving its benefits for one's self.

Indeed, the world would be a much different place if everyone on the planet took at least level I Reiki training.

Reiki / Gendai Reiki / Sekhem~Seichim~Reiki (SSR)


Traditional Western Reiki is taught in three levels. Level I, II, and III, which in my teaching, includes an apprenticeship. Level II may be taken as early as a month following the Level I class. There is a one year period of working with and integrating the Reiki energy before proceeding to Level III, Master/Teacher Level training.

Gendai Reiki

Gendai Reiki is a style of Reiki created by Sensei Hiroshi Doi which combines Usui Ryoho Reiki taught in the West with Usui Ryoho Reiki passed down and taught in Japan. The word "Gendai" means modern.

Japanese Reiki seems, in general, more spiritually-oriented than its western counterpart. In the West, the focus on Reiki has been on a healing arts technique for healing body, mind, spirit. In addition to the practice of Reiki as a modality for healing, Gendai Reiki combines meditations, practices, and techniques for using Reiki energy for a deeper spiritual connection and for a better and expanded connection with the energy.

Gendai Reiki is taught in four levels: Shoden, Okuden, Shinpoden, and Shihan, with Shihan Level.

Sekhem~Seichim~Reiki (SSR)

Sekhem~Seichim~Reiki is a healing matrix of energy that includes Sekhem, Egyptian Light energy; Seichim, ancient Egyptian healing energy; and Reiki. The SSR trinity combining the three works at the heart center and emotional body to open individuals up to greater LOVE and connection with Source. Often, people experience profound shifts in themselves after working with SSR energy, and especially after receiving the SSR empowerments (attunements).

SSR healing sessions and/or attunements allow individuals an opportunity to engage in very deep healing work. SSR helps individuals move through patterns of self-limitation by opening the heart to LOVE and possibility. Experiences vary, but SSR energy typically moves individuals into a deeper relationship with themselves and with everything around them, helping bring clarity to the areas of one's life that need to be changed for maximal growth.

Sekhem~Seichim~Reiki (SSR) includes seven facets taught as SSR Facets I & II Combined (for beginners and SSR I and Reiki I practitioners) and SSR Facets I - VII Combined (for Reiki II or SSR II or III practitioners and those at Reiki Master Level.)
