Traditional Usui Reiki

What is a Reiki Treatment?

Reiki is an energy-based hands-on healing practice developed in the late 1800s in Kyoto, Japan by a Tendai Buddhist lay-priest and Shugendo practitioner named Mikao Usui. Reiki translates to “spiritual energy” or “universal life force energy”. This energy can be equated to full spectrum light: an energy that holds everything that we require to reconnect to the center of ourselves and, from that point of connection, release, re-align and revitalize our total system: body, mind and spirit. Reiki is practiced with the client fully clothed while the practitioner lays their hands either gently on the body or slightly above the physical body. The results of a Reiki treatment and the experiences that a client has while receiving a Reiki treatment are entirely individual. Many people report a sensation of profound stress relief, warmth in the body or in the hands of the practitioner, and re-connection to the center of the self.

At Arcana, all of our Reiki practitioners are trained in Traditional Usui Reiki in the Usui Reiki Ryoho lineage, which has been preserved in Japan through the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai (a society for the preservation of Usui Reiki founded in 1922 by Mikao Usui and his students). In working with our practitioners, you can be assured that you will receive a grounded, authentic and connected Reiki treatment, founded in traditional principles and practiced with integrity.


Reiki & Polarity Combination Session

This service is only available on Thursdays with Mea Tavares

The combination of Traditional Usui Reiki and Polarity Therapy offers a unique balance of the focused, directive work of Polarity and full-spectrum connection and flow of Reiki. Polarity Therapy lends the language of the 5 Ayurvedic elements of Ether, Air, Fire, Water & Earth to the session,allowing for specific and targeted work to address specific concerns and goals. The gentle Universal energy of Reiki provides a soothing, whole-body approach that facilitates relaxation, re-connection and clarity. To bring these two modalities together to serve in a session is to draw on a diverse set of tools to achieve both specific and overall balance of the total self: body, mind and spirit.


Our Clients Experiences with Reiki at Arcana:


“It is difficult to express fully how wonderful and transforming Arcana has been. I was drawn to Arcana for intuitive reasons I have no explanation for and it exceeded my expectations. Mea (Reiki) is kind, accepting, and generous with their time and emotions. The first word that comes to mind is authenticity. To say my experience here has been life changing would be an understatement. Arcana (with Mea and Jennie’s support) has been the beginning of my growth and personal/spiritual development.” – T.

Great first experience

“My first experience with Reiki and at Arcana was wonderful. When I called to ask about services and book an appt, Mea instantly put me at ease and was helpful and efficient. Jennie was a warm and skilled therapist, and her insights during the Reiki treatment (my first ever) were very helpful. After the treatment I felt wonderful for days. I will definitely return to Arcana soon!” – V.

“I had my first visit yesterday to this spa! What a great experience. The ladies I met were kind, thoughtful, and gracious! I left feeling relaxed, content and grateful. I had a Reiki treatment done by Emilie! WOW! I cannot wait to go back. To the skeptics out there, give it a try! You won’t be disappointed!
