Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a natural, ancient healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing on many levels. Reiki is the Japanese word for “Universal Life Force Energy”. Reiki is a gentle, simple technique using the hands with a light touch on or over a fully clothed person. The healing energy does not come from the practitioner but from the life force energy of God that is all around us. 

Many people experience deep relaxation, pain relief, improved sleep, a boost in immunity, stress reduction, healed emotions, improved post surgical pain and healing and balance of the mind, body and spirit. 

Mary is a Master in both the Usui method of Reiki and Holy Fire III Karuna Reiki® as taught by William Rand of the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT). Holy Fire III Karuna Reiki® has been called a more accelerated form of Reiki, able to provide more benefit than the traditional style.

For more than a decade, in hospitals, clinics, hospices and medical schools across America, Reiki is gaining acceptance as a meaningful and cost-effective way to improve patient care. Hospitals are incorporating it into their roster of patient services, often with their own Reiki-trained physicians, nurses, physical therapists, social workers and support staff. Reiki was in use in hospital operating rooms as early as the mid-90's. Many Hospices offer Reiki sessions to patients with life limiting illnesses as an adjunct to care and found that it decreases pain and increases feelings of peace and relaxation. 

A research study at Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut indicated that Reiki improved patient sleep, reduced pain and nausea and significantly reduced anxiety during pregnancy. Currently over 90 U.S. hospitals incorporate Reiki into patient care. Mary has been trained in Reiki since the early 90’s and is not only a practitioner but also a Master Level instructor.
