What is Reiki? How does Reiki heal?
& What to expect during your session?


Rei= spiritual wisdom
Ki = life energy
Reiki is the energy that connects our higher self with everything around us. It's the intelligent life-force that connects us to what we need. This energy is available to everyone. 
Reiki energy comes from the universe, the divine, source, etc... whatever title you prefer.
Reiki energy has been in existence since the dawn of existence. However, Reiki as a system of healing was discovered in Japan in 1922 by Mikao Usui.  
Reiki is a Japanese technique used for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.
Reiki is a non-invasive healing therapy that channels energy through the practitioner to the client and the areas in need of healing.
Reiki is a healing system used to increase awareness, insight, wisdom, and personal growth. 
Reiki increases feelings of contentment & relaxation and decreases feelings of stress, fear & anxiety. Reiki also reduces physical illness and persistent conditions.


Rei = spiritual wisdomKi = life energyWe are alive because life energy (ki) is flowing through us.Ki flows within the physical body through pathways called chakras/meridians/nadis. Ki is present in the organs and tissues of the body and can pass directly through them.It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura.Everything within us is energy and everything around us is energy.Ki nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them and their vital functions. When the flow of healthy ki is disrupted, it decreases the function within one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body. Therefore, it is the disruption in the flow of ki that is the main source of illness. Reiki raises the vibrational level in and around the physical body where there are blockages in the flow of ki.Reiki clears, strengthens and heals the energy pathways allowing the healthy ki to flow in a healthy way.


Each Reiki session lasts approximately 45 minutes - 90 minutes. The session consists of 30-60 minutes of Reiki energy and then discussion afterwards with coffee or tea if desired. The client lays face up on a massage table in a relaxed, meditative state. The practitioner (Rachel) places their hands on or hovering over the client’s body in various positions such as on the head, chakra centers, arms, legs,hands, and feet.Reiki sessions through Rawchellys included the use of various crystals, essential oils, tarot & oracle cards, and smudging smoke from sage and/or palo santo. After the Reiki session, a client can expect the Reiki energy to continue to flow through them for the remainder of the day. The client should consume plenty of water to help flush out any toxins released during the session.
