Reiki (Ray-kee) for Physical and Emotional Healing by Anne Lucero

Reiki is a specific form of energy healing that involves placing the hand just off the body or lightly touching it as if in prayer or “laying of hands.” “Rei” means God and “Ki” simply refers to life’s energy. The procedure originated in Japan and was developed by a minister and teacher of a Christian college for boys.

During a Reiki session, which usually lasts about an hour, the practitioner is seeking to transmit positive, loving energy, and compassion to the client. The intention is to induce deep relaxation, to help hasten healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms that may be experienced. Reiki can also be done as a long-distance form of prayer.

Midland’s Yoga Sanctuary has been a space to share natural healing for several years. Healing, meditative yoga is scheduled regularly with Reiki incorporated during a given session. 

Reiki sessions can be a positive experience, especially for someone going through grief, loss, divorce, PTSD, and anxiety. Sessions can also be done to ease one’s pain after an accident or surgery.

Reiki is helpful both in pre/postoperative cases and sometimes done instead of surgery. It complements modern medicine, and it’s now used in hospitals and medical settings in many parts of the country. 

Health care systems challenge institutions to offer high-quality but cost-effective services for the betterment of the patients. Today, Reiki is being recognized as an essential tool for maximizing patient care and minimizing recovery time.

Dealing With Grief

Losing loved ones is a natural part of the cycle of life. To adjust to a new reality, we go through a period of grief, wherein we may experience intense emotions that range from shock and anger to sadness, confusion, and moments of relief. It may feel like someone ripped you apart and took a piece of you. Reiki can help you cope with grief since it assists in healing on all levels: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.

What is most important is fully allowing your emotions to move “through” you. Grief moves through in waves. Reiki can help a person ride the waves, taking each one as it comes. God provides tools for the healing process. 

Examples of testimonies after a session are: “moved beyond description,” “release,” “lighter,” and “weight lifted.” Some go into a deep sleep, some cry, others just wholly relax (which are all forms of release).

Most of us can attest to the sweet experience of being in deep prayer, or broken down weeping when someone puts a hand on your shoulder to comfort you. That can be the hand of the Holy Spirit, or someone’s guided touch. That person is being used as a vessel for healing. That is a reassuring touch that gives a sense of trust, hope, and love. 

A Reiki session can be utilized as a tool, a guideline for someone feeling a bit lost, unsure, anxious, or overwhelmed.


Reiki for Animals 

Animals are very receptive to the loving, gentle Reiki process. This is why Reiki practitioners are often present at local dog events. Equine Reiki is also commonly practiced and pretty much similar to “horse whispering.”

If you are interested to learn more or to schedule a Reiki session, please get in touch with us. Reiki can be scheduled for oneself or gifted to someone who would benefit from it.


Reiki is a subtle and effective form of energy healing using spiritually guided life force energy. Reiki is used in many settings including hospitals, hospice, and well as in private practice and in self-care. Reiki session can help ease stress, tension, and can help support the body to facilitate healing on all levels-physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Reiki is prayer to God for help or healing and renewing. A session is pleasant, relaxing and is often utilized for one's own personal wellness, not just illness. ( Reiki article by Anne below )
