Distance Reiki, does it really work?

I do a fair amount of my Reiki practice via distance, which prompts the question: "Does distance Reiki work?" For those of you who may like the more science and evidence-based approach, here we go:


Distance Reiki works according to the Hermetic Law of Similarity, which holds that we are all connected, as we are all energy matter and part of a larger whole. As such, invoking this law during a distance Reiki session allows the practitioner to link an object to the energy field of the recipient. I typically use the recipient's photo along with setting up a mutual time. Reiki can be sent to anyone anywhere at any time.


The clients I work with will relay the very same Reiki benefits back to me after a session. They report feelings of relaxation, happiness, empowerment, ease, and relief from pain. My distance Reiki clients will also have the same amount of breakthroughs as those whom I work with in person. And sometimes, their energetic experiences feel even more powerful to them, because they were not physically present with me. Reiki is just as effective in a remote session as in person. 



Reiki for Athletes

For athletes, Reiki is a supportive training aid. It’s a tool that can be used anytime, anyplace for on-the-spot stress release, pain relief, and to boost energy levels. It’s also an excellent aid for sports injuries. The deep relaxation reached during a reiki treatment helps to sooth the physical body and has a profoundly therapeutic effect on the targeted areas, thus resulting in a quicker recovery rate. With regular treatment, this may even help to reduce further injury.


Reiki produces results on an electromagnetic level. Scientifically, Reiki is the bio-photon (light) emission conducted from one organic species to another. Reiki is from the light of lights and light is science. Reiki can balances the recipient’s disturbances in their body’s bio-energy field. 

Basically, Reiki enables the body to experience a truly restful state; breathing becomes slower and more in-depth, allowing oxygen to reach all the vital organs and cells. Circulation improves, and any blockages and toxins are eliminated. Energy flows freely and effectively, re-balancing body and mind.


Today professional athletes must deal with all kinds of pressure, stress, emotions, and injury. Reiki helps to mentally prepare the sports-person and manage the stress and any pre-performance nerves associated with a high-pressure event or competition. It can also be used to deal with issues of self-doubt, which may result in a lack of form. Reiki has a calming and reassuring effect on the mind, lowering stress levels and enabling the recipient to regain focus and confidence.
