Reiki is a powerful form of energy healing.  It cleanses and balances your chakras and meridians (energy pathways), which clears your mind as well as your body.

What Is Reiki?

Reiki is a form of energy healing that originated in Japan.  The word Reiki comes from the Japanese words “rei,” which means universal, and “ki,” which means energy, as in the body’s vital energy.  So put together, reiki is used to describe the type of healing where the practitioner channels energy into your system to fill out any areas of depletion, cleanses out any negativities and balances your energy centers (chakras). 

The healing art of Reiki was first developed in 1922 by a Buddhist monk, Mikao Usui; and was handed down through his disciples and has been continued through today.  

Reiki is different from other healings in that the practitioner does not physically touch, yet the energy transmission is palpable and healing. The benefits of Reiki can include improved sleep, anxiety and stress reduction, and pain relief.

OHM’s Reiki Practitioner:

João Miranda, Reiki Practitioner

Joao joined OHM as a Reiki Pracitioner in November 2022.  He treats patients at OHM’s secondary location at 333 East 46th Street location as well as our primary location at 1143 First Avenue.

João is a Brazilian Reiki Master and Theta Healing practitioner, but also an engineer who combines both intuitive perception and critical thinking into his self-awareness development, spiritual connection, and quest for inner balance.  A young, relaxed and passionate-for-life person, João loves to travel and be in nature.

Having tried many paths and techniques in the search for harmony and how to incorporate peace into his daily life, Reiki was definitely a game changer for him.  Reiki has enabled him to live a more present, meaningful and happy life, while also helping others and sharing his experience along the way.

João has had the privilege to be instruction by 3 different masters, incorporating teachings from Chile, Brazil and Japan.  Now living in NYC, he continues his life mission of helping other manifesting their inner healing.  

If you’d like to give it a try, João will be delighted to guide you through your journey!


What happens during a Reiki Session?

You will lie down on a comfortable massage table during your session, fully clothed. Our practitioner, Joao, will first speak with you about any particular physical, emotional or spiritual issues you are struggling with and would like to experience healing.  

As you relax, Joao will transmit energy to where healing is needed most for your specific concerns. During the treatment, you may feel a surge of energy, a feeling of physical/emotional release, or simply more relaxed and sleepy. 

Energy healing treatments are equally effective in-person and virtually! The nature of energy is to transcend boundaries, and our practitioners welcome distance sessions.

     Guidelines Post Reiki Treatment:

    • Joao will fill a glass of water and keep it beside you as he works on you.  Post-treatment, you will be asked to drink the water that is charged with Reiki energy.
    • Try to take it easy and relax after a Reiki treatment.  It is best if you avoid alcohol for the remainder of the day.
    • After you leave your appointment, we recommend drinking extra water or other nourishing fluids. The healing continues for a period of time, so we encourage following your intuition on how to metabolize the energy you receive, such as extra rest, contemplative writing, etc.
