What Happens at a Reiki Exchange?

Are you curious about Reiki? Have you thought about attending a Reiki Exchange, but weren’t sure what to expect?

At the last Reiki Exchange, I noticed that the new people seemed uncomfortable when they arrived. By the end of the hour, they all looked relaxed. One person even commented, “I feel like I took an Ibuprofen.” Perhaps a little information would have helped these new people feel comfortable right away.

A typical Reiki Exchange

A typical Reiki Exchange lasts about an hour. The leader gives a short talk on Reiki and answers any questions from the group.

The group members then have the opportunity to experience and share Reiki (and sometimes other healing modalities). People can observe or join in. I recommend joining in.

Reiki Exchanges are free, but donations are appreciated. See our Events Calendar for the next scheduled Exchange.

So, what is Reiki?

Briefly, Reiki is an energy healing system from the East. Eastern countries such as Japan, China and India have an ancient tradition of using energy as a healing modality. Many people are familiar with Chinese medicine, which uses acupuncture and acupressure to balance energy in the body.

Reiki originated with a Japanese monk, Mikao Usui, who wanted to recover ancient healing traditions. Reiki is an easy yet powerful healing system that anyone (even children) can learn.

Energy in the West

Western physics tells us that the basis for everything is vibration or energy. Traditional Western medicine has been slow to embrace this idea, but that is changing. Dr. Oz is promoting the use of acupuncture and Qigong. Doctors are beginning to recommend Reiki for pain relief. Over 800 hospitals in America offer Reiki.

Why do you want to experience Reiki?

Reiki is easy to learn and becomes a lifelong skill. You can help heal yourself, your family and even pets.


I hope you have a lot more questions about Reiki and energy healing. The best way to get answers: attend a Reiki Exchange and experience Reiki for yourself.
