What is Reiki (in Anoka, MN)?

What is Reiki?


  • Reiki is a safe, simple, natural method of stress reduction and relaxation.

  • Reiki promotes healing by method of “laying on hands”

  • Reiki operates by way of unseen life force energy

  • This energy flows through us

  • When life force energy is low, one is more prone stress and illness

Reiki is among one of the healing arts and pulls the negative energy in the base chakra and disease from your body and mind.

  • When life force energy is high, one is healthy and vibrant and radiates high energy. This is what Reiki serves to accomplish.
