Energy healing has been practiced across the world for thousands of years. Reiki is a very simple, yet powerful healing technique, originating in Japan in the early 1900s by Dr. Mikao Usui.


  • Allow yourself to open to the infinite possibilities of the healing power of Reiki.
  • Reiki is universal, spiritually-guided life energy.
  • Reiki understands each persons needs and the cause of all problems.
  • Reiki is a Japanese technique used for relaxation and to promote healing.
  • Reiki is pure healing energy and can never cause harm.
  • Reiki has its own consciousness.
  • Reiki is not dependent upon any one belief system.
  • You can never do too little or too much Reiki.

Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is a form of healing that accesses universal life energy. It is spiritually guided, guiding itself with its own wisdom rather than the direction of the Reiki practitioner. Reiki is self-correcting, knows just what a person needs, and adjusts itself accordingly. It has its own consciousness, cannot be contaminated or influenced, therefore can do no harm. Reiki is always safe and pure.

Reiki treatments can be done in-person, or via long-distance Reiki. As a Certified Master Reiki Practitioner, trained and belonging to the lineage of William Lee Rand via Colleen Benelli, Karen follows the Usui/Tibetan teachings.

Reiki has been used to treat stress, fatigue, anxiety, and negativity. All major and minor illnesses can be positively affected by Reiki. It has been show to be complimentary to all traditional forms of treatment and medicine.

At Igniting Spirit, we offer Reiki Training and Reiki Treatments. Treatments are offered at our location in Portland, Oregon, in your home, or another location convenient to you, within a reasonable distance. Reiki treatments may also be performed, regardless of your physical location. Long-distance Reiki treatments have been found to be very effective.

According to the American Hospital Association, in 2007, 15% or over 800 American hospitals offer Reiki as part of hospital services. The popularity of Reiki in hospitals has been driven by requests from patients and by nurses and doctors who have experienced its value. The American Cancer Society reports that Reiki reduces many of the unwanted side effects of radiation and drugs, including chemotherapy.
