What is Reiki and How Can It Help Me?

Have you been feeling stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed? Have you considered alternative methods for managing these feelings and improving your overall well-being? Reiki, a healing technique that originated in Japan, could be just what you need. In this blog post, we’ll explore what Reiki is, how it works, and how it can benefit you. 

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient healing practice that dates back thousands of years ago. It was first developed in Japan and involves the practitioner channeling energy to the patient through their hands. The goal of Reiki is to help balance and restore the body’s natural life force energy, also known as ki or chi, which promotes health and well-being. Reiki is a non-invasive, gentle practice that can help reduce stress and tension, bring clarity to the mind, and assist with physical healing. It’s a holistic approach that can be used to treat both physical and emotional issues.

Reiki is based on the belief that all living things are connected by an unseen energy force that flows through us all. The practice of Reiki helps to unblock stagnant energy and balance the flow of energy in the body. During a Reiki session, the practitioner puts their hands on or near different parts of the patient’s body to channel this energy and help restore balance.

Reiki can be used to reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep quality, reduce pain and inflammation, promote relaxation, boost immunity, improve energy levels and moods, enhance spiritual wellbeing and provide an overall sense of peace.

It has been known to help treat conditions such as depression, high blood pressure, headaches, digestive issues, skin problems and much more. Reiki can be used in conjunction with traditional medicine to help overall health and wellbeing. It is also being used increasingly in the medical field for its many healing benefits.

Reiki has been known to bring about a sense of balance and harmony into one’s life, making it easier to cope with the everyday stressors of life. If you are looking for a way to relax and improve your health, Reiki is certainly an option worth considering. With its many benefits and non-invasive approach, it may be just what you need on your path to wellbeing.

The Facial Acupuncture component can be beneficial in the following areas:

  • Tightens pores and brightens eyes
  • Tone sagging areas of the face
  • Bring more firmness to the sagging skin
  • Eliminate fine lines and diminish larger wrinkles
  • Decrease puffiness and sagging around the eyes
  • Reduces stress and promotes total health and well being
  • Increase Facial Muscle tone through improving collagen production
  • Reduce double chin, sagging neck and lift drooping mouth and eyelids
  • Bells Palsy and Stroke recovery
  • TMJ (Jaw) problems or stiffness
  • Reduces symptoms of Neuropathy
  • Enhance the radiance of the complexion


As a result of these effects, fine wrinkles will disappear and deeper ones will be reduced. This treatment is not merely confined to the face, but also incorporates the entire body and constitutional issues of health from digestive issues and lack of energy, through to stress, depression and much more.

Each treatment involves the insertion of tiny acupuncture needles into specific areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, feet, and legs to affect changes in the face as well as the whole body. On your first visit, we discuss your overall health history, including any physical, mental or emotional issues in your life that you feel you want to work on. We will evaluate what changes you would like to see in your face and skin as well as discuss your overall health goals, and then begin your treatment. Ultra fine needles are inserted while you are relaxing and lying down on a comfortable massage table. Once the needles are in place, you rest for 20-30 minutes. Facial acupuncture treatments are not limited to just acupuncture. They quite often include massage, jade roller and/or derma rollers, application of select herbal washes/toners/moisturizers appropriate for your skin type and tone, and end with a mask application if requested. In general, the treatments are very relaxing and take anywhere from 75-90 minutes.​
