Reiki Verses Massage

This information is being provided to make it easy for someone seeking a Reiki session to make an informed decision. Charlene is not a doctor or psychologist. Reiki treatments include, but are not limited to relaxation and feelings of peace and well-being. The most she guarantees is relaxation and stress reduction. Charlene feels the public should be made aware of the different types of healing modalities that are available for one's own healing since many are unaware of what is available.   

Reiki is a simple laying on hands technique, and can be practiced without touching anyone. Reiki is not massage and the person remains fully clothed. Reiki is a non-invasive healing energy that is channeled through the hands which affects the spirit and soul. Massage is a manipulative technique using the hands which affects the physical body. Reiki is simply an alternative healing technique that provides great value to the receiver.

The NCCAM defines five distinct domains of complementary and alternative healing practices. Reiki is listed under "Energy Therapies", which are "intended to affect the energy fields that surround and penetrate the human body. According to the NCCAM, "Reiki is based on the belief that by channeling spiritual energy through the practitioner, the spirit is healed, and it in turn heals the physical body." Conversely, massage is listed under the "Manipulative and Body-Based Methods", which are defined as "methods that are based on manipulation and/or movement of the body", wherein "massage therapists manipulate the soft tissues of the body to normalize those tissues."

Reiki is a gentle, simple technique that anyone can learn. The Japanese words "Rei" and "Ki", when combined, translate to mean "life energy of a spiritual nature", "the spiritual power of God", or "Universal Life Force Energy". The ability to do Reiki is passed from the Reiki Master/Teacher to the student through attunements.

One doesn’t need to change one’s religious beliefs in order to practice Reiki. People of all religious backgrounds practice Reiki and continue to maintain their original religious beliefs. It is through these beliefs that bring people together of all religions in a spirit of harmony and trust. It is a way of bringing world peace. For those who are Christian, please visit

There are no official records that are available as to how many people have Reiki training; however, it is estimated that there are at least a million people who have Reiki training in the US today. Reiki has also helped lower health-care costs through the US improving the health and well-being of many people along with creating a source of income. In many ways Reiki is truly a miracle and is very powerful.

Reiki practitioners are not licensed health-care providers. If clients are in need of medical care, they are encouraged to seek help from a licensed health-care provider.  To learn more about Charlene, please visit her website at

Dear friends,

Don’t forget to breathe each day. Breathing each day will help you to get in the flow and start living life fully. Do you want to be fully present in each moment? If so, now is the time to breathe. Breath connects us to love and the source of creation.

It is through breath that one can be fully present; therefore, we can’t be in stress or in fear otherwise we won’t be able to breathe fully. Do you want to be freed of blocks? Breathing, and doing breath work, can help you get back into the flow of life. It is through breath that you will feel renewed and connected to the flow of source. Also by breathing you bring oxygen to your system helping to disintegrate the physical effects created by stress.

Life becomes a wondrous journey when we remember our connection to love. Love is the greatest gift you can give to yourself and others. We will be talking about this in further detail at a later date; however, today you are being asked to show love to yourself and all those that cross your path.

We are being reminded that when we get caught up in fears, building our self images, along with holding onto the physical realm, we miss the signs that guide us along the path of our soul’s journey. It is through our human experiences that our souls are experiencing remarkable opportunities for growth.

It is about remembering our true selves and giving of who we are in every moment that not only shifts our own consciousness, but shifts the soul consciousness of humanity.

By letting go and opening to the love that is within, we each can discover inner peace and focus on all the blessings and miracles that each moment brings.

Einstein stated that no problem is solved from the same consciousness that created it. It is through shifting your energy and aligning it with the Higher Power, that more often then not the old problems seem to no longer be there. Now you are in the flow and are starting to live life.

Peace, Love, Light, & Blessings,
