                               Reiki

     Reiki  (Ray - Key) is a powerful and precise system of healing energy that can be       used for literally everyone, everything and anything.  It can be physical, mental,                                                        spiritual, or emotional.

    It was rediscovered in the early 1900's by Dr. Mikao Usui.  Reiki's origins are found
in the Tibetan sutras, the ancient records of cosmology and philosophy.  This energy
is also known as prana, mana, chi, holy spirit, source, and helps promote healing in
all
living things on the physical, mental,. emotional, and spiritual levels.  The word
Rei  (ray) is interpreted to mean Universal life...(knowledge of spiritual consciousness which is all knowing) 
and Ki (key) is energy or the life force.  It is also called the vital life force or the universal life force.  The ability to have this healing energy is ever-present to all of us.  One must be attuned to the frequency (or vibration) passed on by a Reiki Master. 
     It is important to choose a Master/Teacher with discrimination and research as there are several
who are not properly trained or certified to help you achieve the maximum of care and knowledge.
     As you will note, our lineage is direct and short and the teachings & information 
have not been altered in any way...this is "pure Reiki" in it's truest form. There are so many Reiki courses being offered and, unfortunately ,you may be receiving inaccurate or faulty information and attunements.  We do not use our own energy...our lineage  enables us to channel the most healing, pure,

and beautiful energy.

    ++ Our Traditional lineage has been passed down directly from a very short list of Masters and "in person"...Usui, Hayashi, Takata, Gray, Rosenthal...to myself (Sands) after years and extensive training and you are assured of receiving the most
valuable and truest of Reiki energy attunements and instruction.

This hands-on healing art is a powerful compliment to the conventional
therapeutic method.  It fuels the body's homeostatic mechanisms and assists
in restoring balance on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. 
The Reiki Masters and Reiki Practitioners are channels for this healing.


How does Reiki Heal?



      The life force flows within the physical body through pathways called chakras,

 meridians, and nadirs.  We are alive because of this.  It flows around us in a field
   of energy called the "aura" nourishing the organs and cells of the body as it
    supports them in their vital functions.  When this flow is disrupted, it causes

    diminished functions in the organs and tissues of the physical body.  The life
   force is responsive to thoughts or feelings about ourselves.  Negative thoughts

      and feelings can attach themselves to our energy field, therefore causing a

  disruption in the energy flow.  Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts
of the energy field and charging them with positive energy.  It raises the vibratory
        level of the field in and around  the physical body (aura)  causing the

                               negative energy to break apart and fall away. 

                                     In so doing, Reiki straightens, clears, 
                                   and helps to heal the energy pathways
                                        restoring good health and balance.  
       

   

       Reiki can be used very effectively on animals as well...and this is
                           taught in our Reiki Certification classes.
