Reiki is a Japanese word, often translated as "universal life energy." It also means "soul force" or "spirit power." In Japan the general term for life energy is ki , and Rei-ki is seen as the highest of seven energies responsible for life in the material universe. Being at the top of this hierarchy, Reiki is positioned at the meeting place of the physical and spiritual realms; it bridges the material world and the world of pure spirit.

The Japanese Kanji of Reiki has two parts:

Rei - The deliberate action of bringing "rain" (Heavenly power) down to earth....And...Ki - The asterisk-like figure is "rice" , the staple food of human life. The other lines aura the aura of rice.

If we look at each part as a separate word, Rei can be translated as "spirit" and Ki simply as "energy". We may think of Ki as our personal energy (sustains by eating the rice). and Rei-ki as the action of bringing down the energy of Heaven or the greater Universe (Rei) and uniting it with our personal Ki. This brings "enlightenment", which is another translation of the word Reiki. Mr. Hiroshi Doi, a Japanese Reiki teacher and member of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai in Tokyo, says, "Reiki is wave of love!" I believe it is exactly that: a vibration of pure, unconditional love, which brings out the best in everything it touches. We can think of Reiki as the "extension cord" that connects us to Source energy, or the "program" that allows the integration of Source energy in the material world. -Taken from the book "Reiki -The True Story. An Exploration of Usui Reiki Written by Don Beckett"

Like so many people I had heard the word Reiki before but couldn't tell you so much about it. It wasn't exactly on the top of my list to know about either. This changed for me when I walked into two stores, about a week apart, and the same thing happened. A lady I had never met, in both stores, spoke to me telling me I was a Reiki Master. On both counts I was court off guard and actually turned to look behind me sure that I was not the one being spoken to, only to find I was.

I explained to both ladies that while I was sure it was a compliment I did not know what they were talking about. They tried to explain it to me and I did tell them about this strange "thing" that happened to my hands. Overall however, I took it with a grain of salt and thought it was strange and nice at the same time. I left it at that.

Some months later I decided I would actually look into this "Reiki" and see what it was all about. I hit the internet and went from website to website looking for the Reiki Master that was going to teach me to become a Master too. There are quite a few our there! Anyway, I found one and I emailed her telling her that she was the one! She was going to train me in this Reiki that I knew nothing about. Needless to say she replied asking why. So I explained my experience and why I chose her. She wanted to meet me, saying that she doesn't usually meet this way. I was bang on that she was going to teach me....you know when you meet someone for the first time and you just "know"...it is called satori. the rest is now history.

Reiki is truly amazing. Everyone can benefit from having Reiki treatments. I will not say that I heal people but I will say that people have had miraculous change within them that ended in being relieved from their ailment. The thing to remember about Reiki is that you can not control it.

I am a vessel for Reiki. I do as it guides me. You can come to me for a session or if you live too far away I can do what is called Distance Reiki.


  • " I was lucky enough to find Louise via a Chiropractor that I was seeing. Observing that I was having more than just back problems she did some short Reiki on me with very positive results. I have never looked back and she has been great at bringing me to a more relaxed and upbeat place in my life. Louise has opened not only myself but my wife Lisa's eyes to many alternative ways to healing the mind and body. Please keep up the great work and we will continue to recommend everyone to come and see you. Thanks Brad & Lisa "
