Reiki Therapy is an integrative “health approach in which the practitioner places their hands lightly on or just above a person, with the goal of facilitating the person’s own healing response”. (National Institute of Health, 2015)
The clinical evidence on Reiki Therapy validates its use for pain, stress and anxiety relief. There are no side effects noted in the research on Reiki. It is considered to be a non-invasive and safe therapy.
Facilitated either with a light touch, or slightly off the body, Reiki provides a gentle therapeutic option for those dealing with pain or other health challenges.
Reiki engages the parasympathetic nervous system, promoting a state of deep relaxation.
During Reiki Therapy, one is positioned either laying on a massage table or seated in a chair. The hour long sessions are done fully clothed, covered with a blanket.
Reiki Therapy is available at my Westerville location, close to Worthington, Lewis Center and Columbus.
For an additional cost, if needed, Reiki Therapy can be provided in your home or in the hospital.
Experiencing a Reiki Therapy session is truly the best way to appreciate its gentle yet powerful health benefits.

An initial sequence of three Reiki sessions, one or two weeks apart, is recommended to allow time for the body/mind’s to address health concerns.
However, you are welcome to schedule a single introductory session to experience Reiki Therapy.
Each session begins with a brief intake, followed by a 60 minute Reiki Therapy session.
The session fee is $65.
It is best to allow some time after each session for the body/mind to remain in a relaxed state to support the healing response.
Here are two PDF forms that you can print, fill out and bring with you to your first session.
