joY is in




Below is a simplified explanation of this beautifully relaxing and healing treatment that is hard to put into words, and is now being offered by joY. We truly hope that you will consider this experience as part of your ongoing wellness. We’d be honored to share this with you.


Simply stated, Reiki is an old and transformative method of hands on (and/or hands hovering) healing. It was developed in Japan during the early 1900s by a doctor who understood that your body, mind and spirit are all vital entities of your total being. 

Body     Mind    Spirit


Loosely translated, Reiki means “universal life force energy.” This energy, possessed by all of us, is transferred through the practitioner’s hands, and other energy fields, to the client, and often even back and forth between us. In addition, a Reiki practitioner has your best interest in mind and spirit when working with you and is transferring healing intentions to you at all times. Your practitioner may even silently speak purposeful and nurturing words during your session, improving the already well-meaning flow of energy. 


During a Reiki session, you will experience hands on your body or hovering above your body, and these placements will mostly align with each of your seven chakras. The chakras are believed to hold different forms of your life force energy. The Reiki touch is meant to help this energy flow in healthy ways throughout your body so that you can experience more of the peace and joY your life is meant to be.  


With a skilled practitioner, Reiki will, at the very least, bring you an intense level of relaxation that leads to a more calm body and mind. This relaxation of the body can lead to tremendous physical benefits (limited list below) and can leave the mind more open to joYful experiences. At most, Reiki (and particularly regular treatments, monthly or bimonthly) can create lasting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual relief that can lead to noticeably improved well-being and quality of life. Reiki can allow you to test the beliefs and habits that might be restricting your success, connectedness, vitality, resilience, enjoYment and more, so that you can improve circumstances in your life. Furthermore, Reiki can release trauma held in your body and mind and open your heart and soul to more joY for yourself and others.
