What Is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese healing art developed in the 1800s. It involves laying hands on the body to comfort and relieve pain. Every living thing in the universe has a life force energy flowing through it. This energy is channeled through the hands of the practitioner into the body and aura of the receiver. Reiki heals on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual to balance all of the chakras and help return the body to its natural perfect state.

Tell me about my Reiki Master and Practitioner...

Kim Kitts is a Reiki Master who understands and is captivated by the power of healing energy. The states of relaxation and overall wellbeing that are found with Reiki are why she became involved with the practice, and the increased positive personal effects are why she practices giving and receiving Reiki as often as possible. 

Michele Rhodes is a gifted Usui and Karuna Reiki Master-Teacher who is honored to facilitate healing in her clients, while offering a safe space for healing to occur. She studied under Sara Griscom, Carla Grayson, and Teresa Hager, and has practiced Reiki in the Augusta area over the past several years. Sessions with Michele may include hands-on healing, aura clearing, and other shamanic techniques. She is incredibly grateful for, as well as humbled by, the opportunities through which she is able to assist others in their healing and spiritual growth.

What Is A Reiki Session Like?

The client is dressed to their level of comfort and lies down on a massage table under a blanket in a warm, candlelit room with soft music. The therapist lightly places and holds their hands on or above specific areas of the body for 3 to 5 minutes to rebalance the energy. It induces a deeply restful, meditative state.

How Is Reiki Different Than Massage?

Massage is extremely effective in getting rid of physical tension and often this is what is needed. However, sometimes tension held in the body is caused by emotional trauma, psychological distress, or spiritual despair. Emotions such as fear, guilt, grief and anger can become trapped in the body and mask themselves as muscular tension. Since Reiki works not only on the physical level, but also on the emotional, spiritual and mental levels, it is very effective in such situations. Kim and Bethany often combine Reiki with massage to get the benefits of both therapies.

What Are Chakras?

Our body contains centers of energy called chakras. There are seven main chakras in our body and they directly correlate with our physical body. They are stacked together in a central column from the crown of your head to the base of your spine, and when they are in balance, we allow life-force energy or chi to flow optimally through us creating a better balance between the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of ourselves. Reiki balances all of these energy centers.
