What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction that gently balances life energies and also promotes healing.

Reiki is very simple, non-invasive yet very powerful. During a Reiki treatment recipients can enter a very deep state of relaxation.  As recipients relax,  their own energy can flow in a more natural, self-healing way which supports the body's own healing ability.

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.

Reiki has been effective in helping many illnesses and  creates a beneficial effect.  It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Reiki is not religious and is practiced by people of all religious persuasions as well as those with no religious convictions. As the popularity of Reiki grows, many Christians are becoming interested in this healing art.  For more information visit

A one hour Reiki treatment is the physiological equivalent of 3-4 hours sleep. This makes it one of the most advanced natural stress reduction therapies available.

As part of her philosophy of personal growth and self empowerment, Caterina feels that it is important for Reiki recipients to know that they are participating in their own healing and that as a Reiki practitioner, she is  just an aid to assist.   The person has to be willing to heal.
