What is reiki?

Reiki is an alternative healing method offered free of charge to cancer patients, survivors and caregivers at weSPARK. Reiki harmonizes and balances the body, mind, spirit, and emotions. This form of energy healing can relieve stress, reduce pain, increase energy, stabilize thoughts and emotions.

My reiki session with certified Reiki Master Teacher Steven Todd Smith at weSPARK was a definite stress-reduction experience. Steven invited me to lay down on a table – similar to a table used during a massage session. He offered that based on personal preference, light touch or no touch can be used during the session.  In a reiki healing session, the practitioner is a channel for the energy that naturally lives in the universe. He/she channels negative energy out and deposits positive energy back into your body. This is done in order to heal the body, mind, and spirit.

As I was laying on the table, Steven mentioned to me that I might experience physical sensations or visions during the session. I was nervous but excited to have my first-hand experience with energy healing. Steven began the session with light placing of his hands over my body in order to balance and restore my energy. Light music played in the background and scents were lightly sprayed to evoke certain mental images. Rather than being nervous, I felt secure and at peace. My feelings of anxiety and physical and mental stress disappeared.

As Steven placed his hands over my upper and lower body (the areas that are most stressed on my body), I began seeing certain colors. In particular, I kept seeing the color purple. I have been told that most people who experience a reiki healing session see certain colors or visions as well.
