Reiki is an energy healing technique that originated in Japan. Although Reiki was originally intended as a way to heal oneself, Reiki healing sessions are offered at Goddard Bodywork.
Through gentle touch, Reiki promotes deep relaxation which can be extremely helpful in reducing stress and anxiety, and is a wonderful option for those who don't tolerate traditional bodywork well, with conditions such as fibromyalgia or neuropathy due to MS or diabetes.
Most commonly, Reiki is offered fully clothed. Through light, non-invasive touch the practitioner's hands are placed and held over a series of locations on the head and front of the body. These sessions can be hands-on, or for those who prefer, by distant healing.
The secret of inviting happiness through many blessings
The spiritual medicine for all illness
For today only: Do not anger, Do not worry
Be honest in your work
Be compassionate to yourself and others
Do gassho every morning and evening
Keep in your mind and recite
~ Mikao Usui
