“Why do your treatments feel so different… so restorative?” I asked my massage therapist. She smiled and replied, “Ah, that’s the Reiki!”
When I first found Reiki, I was dealing with various health issues. I had tried many providers including massage therapists, physical therapists, and counselors. Finally, I happened upon a massage therapist who achieved better results than any of the others. It was the Reiki energy that made the difference. During and after the sessions with her, I felt extremely relaxed and my symptoms lessened considerably. She explained to me that she was making Reiki energy available to my body as she treated me. She told me that Reiki is a frequency of energy that is available in the universe to everyone, and that we can be trained to make it available to ourselves or each other.
A few months later, I took my first Reiki class. I loved it! I began using Reiki on myself immediately. I did, and still do, experience Reiki as a warm fuzzy blanket. It’s as if my cells are wrapped in the utmost care and comfort. Within this loving protection, my system can find its way toward better balance. For almost twenty years now, I have been treating myself with Reiki. I am much healthier in body and mind than when I began my journey. Reiki continues to be at the top of my list for self-care. And as a professional practitioner and teacher, I am delighted to bring the gift of Reiki to others.
