Reiki in Canada
As Reiki continues to gain momentum and respect in the western world, it also continues to grow in popularity, specifically in Canada. In this article, we are focusing on Canada’s growing appreciation for Reiki and the growth of Reiki healing in Canada
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a complementary health and wellness modality that originated in Japan and is considered a form of energy healing. Reiki professionals use hands-on healing to enhance a client’s healthy energy flow. The goal is to assist in promoting physical or emotional healing. Reiki promotes the relaxation response which helps to put the body in a stress-reduced state that is more conducive to healing. While people tend to have a strong opinion either way about the benefits of Reiki, what is hard to deny is that Reiki healing continues to positively affect many people around the world today. Reiki healing is a wonderful complement to traditional medicine to help support your physician’s or medical team’s healing plan. In addition to hospitals and medical centers, Reiki has also found its way to spas and other complementary healing offices and businesses.
Studies continue to show, as referenced in A Canadian Experience of Integrating Complementary Therapy in a Hospital Palliative Care Unit in the Journal of Palliative Medicine, that integrating complementary therapies such as Reiki into more traditional therapy programs results in better symptom management and increased comfort. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, as much as 70% of Canadians now use “complementary and alternative health-care therapies” including Reiki.
Reiki is gaining popularity in Canada.. but why? Here are 3 quick contributing factors.
1. Respected Source of Reiki Practitioner and Teacher Professionals
Throughout Canada, many acclaimed Reiki practitioners and teachers are growing and benefiting from skilled Reiki Masters who professionally lead the lessons and personally accompany the students on their Reiki journey. People are increasingly discovering the many benefits of receiving Reiki and of Reiki training in Canada. This only adds to the popularity and respectability of Reiki in the country.
Several decades ago, it was difficult if not impossible to locate a Reiki healer, let alone a Reiki Master who was willing to invest time and training in students wanting to learn Reiki, but today the list of local teachers and training centers throughout Canada is growing at an impressive rate.

Through every excellent Reiki session provided and class taught, more people are seeing the benefits of Reiki in their own lives.
