Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What exactly is reiki and how does it work?

A: Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) literally means 'universal life energy' in Japanese and is a system of Enlightenment and a Hands on Healing art developed in the early 1900's by Mikao Usui in Japan. It is an art that is passed from Master to student and is based on the belief that, by channeling spiritual energy through the practitioner, the spirit is healed, and the spirit, in turn, heals the physical. Many patients report a feeling of warmth when the Reiki energy is directed in their bodies.

Q: Can treatments be done long distance?

A: Reiki Energy is not subject to space and time. For those unable to visit our clinic, Teresa can direct her healings over long distance with amazing results. In addition, treatments can even be directed to a specific individual (or animal) whose whereabouts are unknown (such as a lost pet or a runaway).

Q: Can anyone become a reiki healer?

A: As a Reiki Mistress, Teresa can perform Reiki Attunements making you a Reiki Practitioner. According to Astarius Reiki-Om, “To become a Reiki Healer is to learn to direct the flow of Universal Life Energy. There are millions of people around the world who have been trained in the art of Reiki Healing. To become a Reiki Healer is to become a wave carried by the tide of an Ocean of Healers.”


A Reiki treatment is in essence the “laying on of hands,” also known as therapeutic touch, an ancient practice common to many spiritual traditions. Typically, during a Reiki treatment, the client lies down (fully clothed) on a padded treatment table. Energy is transferred to the client through the hands of the practitioner in a series of standardized positions where the hands are placed.

Treatments begin with the client’s head, then covers the abdomen from below the ribs to the lower belly. The client turns over, and the practitioner then works progressively from the top of the back to the tailbone. In each position, the hands are merely rested on the client for 3 to 5 minutes. A full treatment usually takes about an hour.

Long Distance Treatments
Reiki distance treatments are an advanced technique for sending Reiki energy to a distant time or location. While Reiki Energy may be hard to understand, there is considerable evidence that it is able to travel free of time or distance to deliver healing. Most Reiki practitioners use this practice similar to a telephone… they know it works and do not necessarily have a clue as to the fundamental mechanisms.

Teaching Reiki Masters “attune” students to the energy channels and ensure that energy passed through will not be from the student's own reserves. There are three levels of “Attunement”:

First Degree
First Degree Students learn how to do self-treatment and to give hands-on treatment to others. Many people with chronic health issues take this training to help with their own personal healing. This level generally requires one day of training, then students continue to work with their Teaching Reiki Master for a few months to refine their skills and technique.

Second Degree
Second Degree Reiki students learn three special symbols and how to use these symbols to better focus and increase the amounts of Reiki energy transferred. In addition students learn how to give "distance" treatments for individuals, groups, and circumstances. Second level training generally requires an eight hour class plus significant homework.

Master Level
Traditional Teaching Reiki Master training is primarily intended for people who have made Reiki their life's work. Depending upon the individual, Reiki Master level training is usually only given after a student has been practicing Second Degree skills for at least two years. Master level training generally requires a 2- day class. Each new Reiki Master is strongly encouraged to heal others and themselves helping each to improve their own physical, spiritual, and mental health.
