Reiki literally means, in Japanese, stress relief, relaxation, and healing. Reiki therapy, then, is a comprehensive model of reducing stress and anxiety while at the same time promoting healing in the body, in addition to acting as a preventive procedure. The technique is hands-on, and focuses on the idea of chi or life force energy: one’s life force energy should be high in order for us to lead healthy lives, and in order for us to maintain and retain a status of relative happiness. It is when one’s life force energy is low that one feels overcome with stress and anxiety or becomes susceptible to illness and ailment.
In traditional Japanese culture, the word Reiki is a combination of two words: Rei and Ki—Rei is God’s Wisdom and Ki (Qi in Chinese) is the life force energy. Reiki, then, has its roots in spiritualism, and treats the body as a whole: mind, body, spirit. Upon getting our Reiki therapy, you feel as if a great force has encapsulated the entirety of your body, and has energized you. The after-effects also include feelings of peace, wellness, and calmness. The results, naturally, are miraculous so to say.
We offer Reiki therapy as treatment for menopause, anxiety and migraines. The methods we use our safe, natural, and have been used for hundreds of years for the purpose of healing. It helps manage a number of illnesses, acting as both means of prevention and cure. Reiki works in amalgamation with regular, conventional treatments and also helps manage the symptoms and side effects of extreme medical procedures, such as chemotherapy.
Energy can become stagnant in the body due to physical injury or emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness. Energy medicine (Reiki) aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar ways to acupuncture. Improving the flow of energy around the body, can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.

What Happens in a Reiki Session
In Reiki therapy, the qi is transferred to your body through the carefully crafted and rhythmic movements of the hands of the practitioner. In a typical Reiki Session at Noor Acupuncture and Wellness in Los Angeles, you are placed in a quiet, calm setting. We might even play soothing music in the background in order to mute out all disruptive noise, since the object of this session is extreme relaxation. You can choose if you want music or not. The session usually lasts between 15 and 20 minutes, and private sessions can go even further. We conduct a preliminary examination of our clients to ensure that we understand their condition and their requirements before proceeding with our session. This happens during the intake process and helps us better customize these sessions. You will be required to sign a form giving your express consent. We take care to explain the procedure to each client so as to better acquaint them with the therapy. We suggest that you let us know beforehand if you suffer from a specific health condition, especially if the condition is related to the skin or is tactical.
