reikiWhat is Reiki? The Mayo Clinic describes Reiki (ray key) as “a non-invasive healing method that promotes relaxation, enhances the body’s natural healing abilities, and fosters mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Like Healing Touch, Reiki is based on the idea of an energy field that permeates the human body.

What happens at a Reiki Session ? The person receiving Reiki remains fully clothed and lies on a comfortable table while the Reiki practitioner lightly places hands in various positions on or near the body. The person usually experiences relaxation and peacefulness during the session. Shorter treatments can be given to a person in a hospital bed, recliner or chair. Reiki seeks to restore order to the body whose energy has become unbalanced. The healing energy of Reiki can be used to provide relief from conditions such as fatigue, pain, anxiety, negative side effects of treatments and medications, joint problems, and other ailments.”

Reiki  is one way to achieve your weight loss goals. According to an article on, ”When your body holds onto unhealthy weight, it often reflects stale or excess energy that you no longer need to carry with you. Using a few simple Reiki healing techniques, you can clear the two chakras or energy centers that relate to overeating and emotional baggage, offering yourself a firmer foundation for long-term healthy weight loss.

Reiki does not replace, but rather is easily integrated with any medical treatment and other therapies to assist in activating a person’s inner healing potential. Reiki is now being used in a growing number of hospitals and clinics throughout the United States and throughout the world.” We have several Reiki Practitioners offering Reiki Healing at OHHC. Torin Lee-Lewis is a Reiki Master who also teach Reiki at the center.
