Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation which also promotes healing. We all have a universal life force flowing throughout our bodies, through our Chakras. This energy (Reiki energy, Qi or Prana) is what gives us life. If our life force energy is low or if we have blockage in one or more of our chakras, then we are more likely to get sick, feel stress or have pain. If this energy is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki impacts the energetic systems of the body to promote healing.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not.
Reiki energy is harnessed and guided by a trained practitioner that has been attuned to the practice. Once a person has been attuned, their hands become a channel for concentrated life energy that can promote healing and balance in themselves and others. A Reiki practitioner does not give away their own energy and during a session, the receiver does not take energy from the practitioner. The practitioner uses their own energy to channel that of another person and bring it into movement and promote the body’s natural self-healing abilities. A lot of times, our life force energy becomes blocked. A Reiki practitioner is sensitive to this energy in others, and helps to remove blockages and allow the energy within the other person to become balanced, stronger and flow where it needs to.
At my cozy studio in the small town of Gallneukirchen, you will surely feel a sense of peace during your Reiki session.
During the session, the practitioner will place their hands lightly on or near the client’s body in a series of hand positions, including positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and the feet, as well as other positions based on the client’s needs. Each hand position is held for roughly 3 to 10 minutes, depending on how much the client needs in each position. The client is fully clothed and lying on a massage table in a comfortable position.
What will I feel?
There is no right way and no wrong way to feel or experience Reiki during a Reiki session. Some people feel light, others feel heavy. Some feel tingling or vibration sensations, some experience light muscular twitches, some feel warmth. Some people see colors or lights, some people fall asleep due to deep relaxation. However, there are also those who don’t feel anything and this is absolutely okay. Reiki energy always goes where it is needed most and there is no wrong way to experience or feel it.
Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
This method is a simple, natural and safe form of spiritual healing.

While I personally prefer in-person sessions, there is also such a thing called “Distance Reiki” which is done from the comfort of your own home. Reiki energy moves where and when it is needed and therefore does not know the bounds of time, space and distance. I have had great success and powerful results doing distance Reiki with clients. I have done sessions from Austria with my clients being in the US, as well as sessions within Austria/Europe.
Both in-person and Distance Reiki are equally effective, I just personally feel that the in person experience really helps you be in the moment with zero chance of outside distraction. The in-person experience is especially wonderful in the cozy atmosphere I have created in my private studio in charming Gallneukirchen. Whichever option you choose, I have had nothing but lovely interactions with both my in-person clients as well as my distance clients.
