What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for deep relaxation and stress reduction that can speed healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms of discomfort. It is a form of energy healing that uses a “laying on of hands” in order to direct Universal Life Force Energy or a form of Ki to the recipient. Hands are placed just off the body or are lightly touching the body.

Used as an “energetic tune-up”, reiki can be a soothing experience with the beneficial effects of deep relaxation, feelings of peace, security, and well-being. Used in conjunction with medical or other therapeutic techniques, it can help relieve side effects and promote recovery. Many people experience profound insights during and after a reiki session.

About Holly Troy

I'm a rock-n-roller poet who left the Big Apple for the Big Sky Desert where I've been letting it be and grooving with universal love, singing to the gods, dancing with the muses and bicycling with dreamtime messengers. I like altering my reality through imagination, movement, and breath — and I help others do the same through yoga and the workshop Writing the Energetic Body, a practice of "exploring writing through the lens of the chakra system." I am a certified yoga instructor through the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center and hold a BA in Art and Creative Writing from Hunter College. My work has been published in Cosmopolitan Magazine, Night Train, Earth's Daughters, Elephant Journal, Creative Essence Magazine, and as a featured guest poet for bentlily.com.
