All About Reiki By Pat Stubbs


What is Reiki? 

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that alleviates stress by promoting relaxation and healing, and encouraging the yin yang balance.  As in most forms of spiritual healing, Reiki is administered by laying of the hands, or without touching but by directing Divine energy through the facilitator’s hands to the client.  It may be offered seated or lying comfortably and clothed on a treatment table.  

Reiki is pronounced “Ray-Key” and is made up of two Japanese words, Rei which means “universal knowledge” or “Higher Power” and Ki which means “life force energy.”  Combined, Reiki means “spiritually guided life force energy.”  “Life force energy” is the health and vitality found in all living things: humans, plants, and animals.

Although Reiki is spiritual in nature- it is not a religion and is free from dogma.  Reiki can do no harm and can only be used for the highest good of all.  It has been said, “If more people used Reiki, there would be fewer wars and less violence in our world.”

   Reiki is a natural healing energy support system that acts in conjunction with all healing practices.

   Reiki supports medical procedures and practices.

   Reiki does not conflict with nor interfere with current treatments.    

   Reiki assists the body to reach its highest level of healing and wellness.  

   Reiki energy helps to bring the body, mind, and spirit into balance. 

   Reiki is a pathway of continual love, light, understanding, peace, compassion, trust, honor, and    Integrity. 

   Reiki works despite any doubt or belief systems.

 Since Reiki energy is  spiritually/universally/divinely guided, it works with an innate  intelligence or body wisdom and automatically goes where it is most  needed. Reiki has been used to successfully treat many illnesses over  the years.  Some cancer hospitals offer Reiki treatments for pain  control. Reiki can be used to facilitate any and all physical, mental,  or emotional problems. The following are just a few disorders where  Reiki can be effective:     migraines , chronic pain, depression and  other emotional disorders, fatigue,auto-immune  disorders , insomnia, wounds, broken bones,  preoperative procedures and  postoperative healing, inflammation, burns, stress, reduces high blood  pressure. 


Our Spiritual Body & "Life Force Energy" 

Obviously our physical body is comprised of skin, bones, muscles, veins, arteries, organs, and tissue, and it is the body we notice more frequently.  However, we must also consider the wellness state of our spiritual body.  Our spiritual body surrounds our physical body and helps us to deal with our thoughts and emotions.  It is within our spiritual body that we find our “life force energy.”  Our spiritual body is a subtle energy system which is composed of chakras, meridians, and nadas. The chakras act as energy generation stations with valves to control the flow of energy, the meridians are like flowing rivers carrying energy along and nadas serve as veins and arteries for the distribution of our “life force energy” throughout our physical body.  This “life force energy” is what keeps our body alive, balanced, and healthy.   

What Causes Our "Life Force Energy" To Become Blocked & How Does It Affect Our Health? 

Stress, anger, fear, doubt, jealousy, greed, and past traumas can interfere with and cause our “life force energy” to become blocked or stagnate.  Negative thoughts and past traumas lodge themselves into our cellular tissue and block our “life force energy” causing havoc in our lives.  When our “life force energy” is blocked or not flowing freely, we are more susceptible to depression, illness, allergies, substance dependence, and dis-ease.  The effects that our past traumas have on our bodies may not show up for many years, but when they do, it is usually unpleasant.  The effects are usually seen in the form of depression, cancer, asthma, fibromyalgia, or chronic fatigue syndrome - just to name a few of the potential side effects. 

Our bodies are similar to appliances.  As long as there is a sufficient amount of electricity flowing to the appliance and no frayed wired or damaged parts, it works perfectly.  “Life force energy” runs through our bodies just as electricity run through an electrical cord, so as long as the life force energy flows freely, we remain healthy and happy.  


Healing With Reiki 

Reiki energy has many healing effects.  Reiki brings the body to a deep state of relaxation, which allows the body to heal itself.  Reiki gently clears old energy patterns and blockages that disrupt the flow of our “life force energies” restoring balance to the body, mind and spirit.   Reiki has been used to successfully treat many illnesses over the years.  Some cancer hospitals offer Reiki treatments for pain control.  Reiki can be used to facilitate any and all physical, mental, or emotional problems. 

What Will I Experience During A Reiki Session? 

Reiki can be administered while sitting in a chair; although, it is most commonly performed with the client lying on a massage or Reiki table. With the exception of shoes, overcoat, and jewelry, there is no need to remove any clothing during a Reiki session.  It is recommended that loose-fitting clothing be worn for maximum comfort during the session.  Reiki is normally performed in a very serene atmosphere with low lighting, candles, aromatherapy, and soothing music playing in the background; this atmosphere further aides the client to relax and enjoy the session. A Reiki session may last anywhere from one to one and a half hours in duration.


 The Reiki practitioner will place their hands lightly on the client’s body, or just above the body in various positions to channel the Reiki energy.  The Reiki energy is channeled through the practitioner’s body and out of the practitioner’s hands which allows the client to draw the Reiki energy as needed from the practitioner.  During the Reiki session, the client may experience a multitude of sensations such as:

 A feeling of being totally relaxed and calm

 Sensations of heat or cold coming from the practitioner’s hands

 Tingling, or a feeling of energy gently rushing through your body 

 A feeling of blissful floating and  inner peace

 Seeing beautiful flashes of color 

 Past memories or thoughts resurfacing 

 Emotional release

 Sleep – many clients fall asleep during a Reiki session

Some clients may experience several of the above mentioned sensations, while others may experience only a deep sense of relaxation during a session.  Each session is different, and you may experience different sensations from one session to the next.  

After each Reiki healing session, it is recommended that you drink plenty of water to flush any toxins from you body.    

How Does A Distance Reiki Treatment Work? 

Distant healing consultations are held over the phone and via internet conferencing each time a distant Reiki treatment is received.  Reiki energy has no limitations as to time and distance; therefore, the client and the practitioner can be on different sides of the world, and the effect is the same as it would be in person.   Receiving a distant Reiki treatment is actually quite simple. You  find a quite place to rest during the session. The only requirement of the client is that they are willing to receive the Reiki healing energy. This can be accomplished by saying a simple affirmation, such as, “I accept, and I am open to receive the Reiki healing energy being sent to me.”  After each Reiki session the client and the practitioner will discuss any feelings, emotions, or questions that may have arisen for the client.     


How Many Treatments Will I Need? 

Although many people feel much better after just one treatment, some issues require multiple visits. Deep emotional issues and long term illnesses may require multiple visits for a short time, and then the frequency is gradually reduced until the issue is resolved.  All Reiki therapy is designed to intentionally meet the client’s needs and desires.


Animals Love Reiki 

Our pets rely on us for their well being.  One of the hardest things a pet owner can experience is watching their beloved pet suffer, whether it is from illness or accident.  Our pets are part of the family, just as our children are, and it is heartbreaking to see them in pain.  Although we take our pet to the veterinarian when they have problems, it is not always enough.  Sometimes the vet can only prescribe meds in an attempt to make the animal more comfortable.  This is where Reiki can help. 

 Reiki is a natural healing system that works in conjunction with all other healing therapies, including traditional western medicine.


   Reiki can accelerate the healing process by easing existing conditions.

   Reiki can enhance your pet’s overall well-being.

   Reiki can improve your pet’s quality of life.

   Reiki can strengthen the immune system. 

   Reiki can accelerate the healing process after surgery.

   Reiki can accelerate the healing process with burns, broken bones, cuts, sprains, and strains.

   Reiki can eliminate depression.

   Reiki can provide comfort and relieve pain, arthritis, anxiety and fear for terminally ill animals.

Remember, you don’t have to wait for you pet to become ill to give him Reiki treatments.

Animals love Reiki and preventative treatment will keep your pet stress free and healthy.

Hands-On or In Person Reiki Treatments 


Hands-On treatments for small animals are given at my studio. Larger Animals are much harder to transport and more comfortable in their own environments, so sessions would be done why the pet lives.  Most pets enjoy the hands-on treatments.  Some pets are more comfortable with the treatment at a slight distance, but in the same room with the Reiki practitioner.  Both are equally effective.



I, Patricia Stubbs, am not a medical doctor and do not practice medicine.  I do not diagnose, heal, treat disease or otherwise prescribe medication.  I assist people in correcting energetic imbalances in their bio-field that assists the body to release its innate healing ability.  When the energy of the body is balanced and moving correctly, the body’s innate natural energy heals itself.  All healing is self-healing.  I recommend that clients continue to see their regular medical doctors and follow their advice and my work is a complement to regular allopathic medicine.  My spiritual energy work is not a substitute for conventional medical diagnosis or treatment for any medical or psychological condition.  For such issues, you should seek the proper licensed physician or healthcare professional.  I am a Reiki Master and my work is spiritually based and I believe all healing is spiritual in nature.  I do not make any promises, warranties or guarantees about results of my work or of the energy sessions.  The energy sessions help many people but like any modality it won’t work for everyone.
