The name, "Replevyn" is from Middle English, originally derived from the Norman French word, "replevine," which means to recover something you didn't know you had lost.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese word meaning universal life energy. It is a nonintrusive method of hands-on healing that taps into the energy referred to by philosophers and martial artists as "ki" in Japan, "chi" in China, and "prana" in India. The practice of Reiki is based on the teachings of a Japanese man, Mikao Usui, who taught and practiced Reiki in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Usui created the framework and methodology for modern-day Reiki and it has since spread throughout the world.

Reiki is not massage, hypnosis, or a tool for diagnosing illness. Reiki is a technique of hands-on or touch healing that addresses both chronic and acute conditions. It gently and powerfully promotes balance among all the body's systems and the normal regenerative processes of the body, mind, and emotions.

More About Reiki

Many ancient cultures, including the Japanese, Chinese, Egyptians, and Indians embraced a belief that life energy flows through us, deeply affecting our bodies, minds and emotions. Current research proves that energy does extend throughout and beyond the physical body and that disruptions or imbalances in its flow correlate to physical, mental and emotional illnesses. The healing art of Reiki (pronounced "RAY-key") addresses these imbalances to support your good health and well-being.

Medical Research on Reiki

At Columbia/HCA Portsmouth Regional Hospital in New Hampshire, surgical patients decreased their use of pain medications, stayed for shorter periods, and reported increased satisfaction with pre- and post-surgical Reiki sessions. Medical research has focused on verifying Reiki's effects rather than explaining how it works. The results are impressive. One study showed a "highly significant reduction in pain," including cancer pain, following Reiki treatment. Another study cited improvement in immune and nervous system function and increased mobility in patients with conditions such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, and fibromyalgia.

Reiki in Health Care

A rapidly growing number of hospitals all over the world use Reiki to complement medical treatments, natural therapies, and massage therapy. Reiki increases a caregiver's ability to provide patient support and is easily practiced in all hospital environments from outpatient clinics to intensive care units.

Reiki is being successfully integrated into numerous clinical settings to complement medical care and psychological counseling. it is gentle enough to offer support and reduce the discomforts of pregnant women and may help ease the pain of childbirth. Hospitals such as the Tucson Medical Center, St. Luke's Hospital in San Francisco, and St. Mary Medical Center in Langhorne, PA have teams of Reiki practitioners available to a range of patients, including those with cancer or recovering from surgery. Reiki is especially appreciated in hospice care where it offers the potential to alleviate pain and anxiety for both patients and family members.
