What is Reiki?


Reiki is a Japanese method of energy healing that is formed from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy). It is based on the belief that the physical body is alive because of the “Life Force Energy” that is flowing through it.

The knowledge of an invisible energy that flows through all living things has been part of the wisdom of many cultures for thousands of years. In fact, the existence of Life Force Energy has even been documented by scientific experiments. Medical doctors are now looking at the role Reiki plays in the functioning of the immune system and the healing process.

If our Life Force Energy is low or blocked, it impacts our wellbeing and personal health. The concept is that energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain and in time, these energy blocks can cause illness.

Reiki is an energy that works on the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual level. The Reiki Practitioners uses a technique that increases the client’s Life Force Energy and aids in bringing the body back into balance promoting a healthier life.

Reiki soothes a busy mind and emotions, provides relief from physical symptoms such as migraines, arthritis, sciatica, asthma, chronic fatigue, hormonal/menopausal symptoms, and insomnia as well as it stimulates the immune system to naturally prevent mind/body dis-ease. Reiki is for anyone who needs emotional, physical or spiritual support in their lives.

At Santosha Wellness & Beauty, we provide Reiki in combination with Facials, Pedicures, or added onto a Massage for truly beautiful relaxation. Or you may opt for an hour of treatment only using the Reiki energy. This traditional Reiki treatment is performed with the client clothed but tucked into a comfy massage bed. After consultation the practitioner guides you into a deep state of relaxation before bathing you in the Reiki energy from head to toe.
