With the excitement surrouding the return of our Crop Circle class in January, we'll forgive you if you may have overlooked that our Reiki returned in November with new instructor, Malka.


With classes available every Thursday from 3-7pm, we felt this was the perfect time to explain exactly what Reiki entails for those who may not be familiar. 


What is Reiki?


Reiki is the system of working with energy that allows the body to clear itself leaving you feeling lighter, healthier and happier. 'Rei' means Spirituality. 'Ki' means the Life Force Energy. Reiki means spiritual life force energy. The alternative medicine was developed in 1922 in Japan, and since has spread to a myriad of other cultures across the globe.


According to IARP.org, "Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Reiki practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others. It is believed that a person’s energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance."

How does it work? 


The process is simple: You lie fully clothed on a comfortable massage table. The Reiki energy is transferred by a lying on of the hands that are placed on different parts of your body. You may feel some emotional release or some tingles or warmth as the Reiki energy flows into your body. A deep sense of relaxation combined with a pleasant feeling of security is common during and after the session.


Per Reiki.org, "Reiki raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, it clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way."
