Reiki Jin Kei Do
Reiki is defined as both a name for the energy produced by a living body and a method of interacting with that energy

What is Reiki?
Reiki is a healing energy treatment that was experienced, provided to patients and taught to students in the early 1900's in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui.  It is practiced by “laying on hands”, and is based on the idea that the universal life force energy is channeled through the practitioner into the person receiving the treatment. The universal energy aides healing on any and all levels that are needed by that individual.  If a person’s life force energy is disrupted, blocked or low, then that person is more likely to not feel well; if it is flowing without disruption, that person is more able to experience well-being and health.
How does it feel to get a treatment?
A treatment feels differently to each person, but is often felt as a subtle glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being.  Treatments are performed fully clothed, and Deirdre creates a safe, comfortable and caring environment.
Is is safe?
Reiki is an alternative healing art that does not take the place of traditional medical care, but rather enhances and speeds traditional medical treatments. 
Reiki is a simple and safe method of spiritual, emotional and physical healing that everyone can use. Reiki is powerful yet gentle. In its long history of use, it has aided in healing virtually every known illness and injury.  It has never been known to cause harm & works to improve the effectiveness of all other types of therapy and treatment.
Tell me more about life force energy...
Life force energy flows within the physical body though pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around our bodies in a field of energy called the aura. Life force energy nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of energy is disrupted, it can lead to physical illness, block our ability to love our self or others, lower our self-esteem, limit our personal & career potential, perpetuate cycles of fear, depression, anxiety, and also halt our spiritual growth.
How does life force energy get disrupted?
The life force energy is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force.
How does Reiki work?
Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts, feelings and blocks are present. This causes the negative energy and blockages to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears and heals the energy pathways, allowing the life force energy to flow in a healthful way.
