University of MD-Shock Trauma has been offering Reiki to trauma patients since 2007. Reiki has become an important element in their pain management program. So much so that they have a program in place to teach Reiki to nurses and other Health Care Professionals!

What is Reiki?

Reiki (ray-key) is a Japanese spiritual healing practice that encourages balance in mind, body and spirit. Reiki translates to spiritual energy - the energy found in and around all living things. Because Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is difficult to translate into words. Once experienced, you will have a better understanding of how Reiki can help you and your animals return to a state of wellness.

Reiki has many beneficial therapeutic effects for humans and animals. It can:

- Induce deep relaxation and reduce stress.

- Accelerate healing after surgery.

- Promote healing during an illness or injury.

- Lessen the side effects of medicines and certain medical procedures.

- Foster feelings of peace, security and well-being.

A human Reiki treatment involves the placement of hands lightly on or just above the fully-clothed person receiving treatment.

Animals do not have to be confined or restrained to be treated. The Reiki practitioner works with the animal to determine how the treatment will best be given.

Both people and animals retain a large degree of control over their own process of healing, including how much Reiki they take and under what circumstances.

"Reiki is Ultimately the most important alternative medicine treatment of all"

Reiki is no longer considered alternative medicine but recognized in the health care community as complementary or integrative medicine and practiced in many hospitals, wellness centers, cancer treatment facilities and hospice centers. Reiki is one of the fastest-growing healing practices used to improve health and quality of life.

Reiki is also growing as a complementary treatment for animals. Animals are sensitive to energy and since Reiki is gentle and non-invasive, it's a perfect fit! 

It is important to remember that Reiki is not a substitute for conventional medicine. A Reiki treatment is in no way meant to diagnose or be the sole treatment offered for most medical conditions. Reiki promotes healing: mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is an invitation to wellness.
