What is Reiki?


Reiki is the Universal Life Force Energy that flows through and around us and sustains life. Reiki is a hands-on energy therapy that increases the flow of energy to and through the body, enhances the body's natural ability to heal itself, and improves and maintains health. It is a gentle, non-intrusive therapy that reawakens and energizes the body's inner healing powers.

Reiki is a simple, natural, and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement. It has been effective in treating virtually every known illness and malady, and its effects are always beneficial. It also works in conjunction with all other medical and therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Recently, Reiki has been recognized worldwide as an alternative medicine with fewer side effects than standard medical treatments. Many hospitals in the UK now offer Reiki as one of the treatments covered by medical insurance. Reiki was used in hospital operating rooms as early as the mid-1990s in the U.S.(*1) and a 2008 USA Today article reported that in 2007 15% of U.S. hospitals (over 800) offered Reiki as a regular part of patient services.(*2)

The secret art of inviting happiness
The miraculous medicine of all diseases
Just for today, do not anger
Do not worry and be filled with gratitude
Devote yourself to your work. Be kind to people.
Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer.
Pray these words to your heart
and chant these words with your mouth.

About Crystal Bowls


The six crystal singing bowls I use for treatment therapies are made of the highest quality (99.992% pure) quartz crystal, and are incredibly resonant. The tones produced by crystal bowls are not just heard by the ear, but also felt in the body, with certain tones affecting your energy centers (chakras) in a way that promotes healing, balancing, and meditation.

Like crystal bowls, our bodies are also crystalline in structure and using crystal bowls for healing can have profound effects on the organs, cells, and skeletal structure, thereby bringing all systems into balance.

When we listen to the sound of crystal bowls, there is a resonation, and a harmonization process that occurs between the external and internal vibrations of our bodies.

In his groundbreaking book The Healing Power of Sound, Mitchell L. Gaynor, M.D. reports the remarkable results he has achieved in critically ill patients by having them work with vocal toning and crystal bowls.

Crystal singing bowls are one of the most powerful spiritual, emotional, and physical healing methods. The initial effect of experiencing crystal bowls is a relaxation of the body and mind. Once calmness is restored, the sound frequencies stimulate the chakras, brain, and nervous system. When we listen to the bowls with focused, positive thought, the results are even more powerful.

After Reiki, Crystal Bowl treatment, many experience a cleansing reaction.

A “cleansing reaction” is a natural, significant body-initiated process that occurs when accumulated toxins and/or emotions are eliminated from the body.

Cleansing reactions may manifest as a slight fever, a runny nose, a cough, increased perspiration, or an urge to release water more often. All these symptoms signal that something in the body has been dislodged, and that something that does not belong there is being released.

These symptoms last roughly a few hours to one day. If you experience a cleansing reaction, please take plenty of water and a good amount of rest.


Reiki, Crystal Bowl treatment is not a medical treatment and should never replace or delay medical or psychological treatment of an illness, injury or medications, but is a complimentary treatment that will help improve results by shortening healing time, reducing pain and stress, and producing positive energy states of consciousness. If you feel uncomfortable after the treatment, please contact me immediately and or, please contact your personal doctor.
