What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of energy healing that works in tandem with other modalities of healing.
The word Reiki is made up of two different Japanese words: “rei” = “universal” and “ki” =”energy” or “life force”. Reiki represents the “life force energy”. The belief is that there is an unseen energy that flows through all living things. This energy is believed to be around us at all times and is believed to be what creates and sustains life.
How does Reiki work?
It’s a very simple and powerful healing technique that aids to balance out the energy systems of the body which often leads to improvements in health, better stress management, and an overall improved sense of wellbeing.
The belief is that if someone’s life force energy is low or blocked, they are more likely to become ill or encounter imbalances.
If someone’s life force energy is high and flowing smoothly through the body (i.e., through the meridians), then the person is more likely to be resilient to disease and be happier, healthier and more in balance.
The goal of balancing the person’s energy is very similar to that of acupuncture or acupressure. The main difference is that, with Reiki, the Practitioner does not necessarily need to touch the body — Reiki can be done “hands-on” or “hands-off”. It can be done in person or via a distance healing session.

S.A.G.E. Reiki Practitioners are also trained in providing distance reiki healing sessions, an incredible option to receive all the benefits of reiki healing from the comfort of your own home. With distance sessions you will check-in with your practitioner via phone or video at the start, then simply relax and accept the energy being sent your way, with a debriefing either virtually or by phone at the close of your distance healing session.
Our distance reiki healing sessions can be done from any geographical location as we utilize the “Distance Symbol” which allows the healing energy to be sent across any span of time or distance. Clients in-person and distance both report gaining the same benefit from a reiki healing session.
It is recommended that you choose a time for your distance reiki healing that allows you to lie down and be still, to reflect on your energetic process during this session.
Your distance reiki healing session will begin with your practitioner calling/video-chatting with you and they will also answer any questions you may have. After checking in, you will end the call with your practitioner and then lie down in a comfortable position, ready to receive your reiki healing. You may leave your eyes open or close your eyes; whatever feels most comfortable to you.
- Reiki can be sent over any geographic distance- reaching individuals in others states and countries.
- Reiki energy can be sent back in time to help in healing past issues,
- and even aid in healing our past lives.
- Reiki energy can move forward in time- like stored energy (think batteries) to aid individuals for upcoming events, or periods of life further on the horizon.
- Reiki can be sent to large groups all at the same time
- Reiki can also be sent to other dimensions.
