WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a gentle hands-on practice used to reduce stress while promoting relaxation and rejuvenation. When the mind, body, and spirit are in alignment and energy is flowing freely, we are in a state of wellness. Reiki energizes and supports your body, helping you to find balance between the body and the mind.
Reiki is a spiritually guided lifeforce energy. Love and compassion are an important part of the practice. It is not a religion; it is a way to focus energy as well as an energy source that can be tapped into. It is an integrative therapy that can be used to strengthen your overall well being, while also reducing pain, anxiety, and fatigue.
Reiki is being used in hospitals across the U.S. as a way to help patients heal faster with less pain.
HOW IT WORKS
Reiki connects the universal life force energy with the body's innate powers of healing. It induces a calming effect allowing the body to help heal itself.
A reiki practitioner acts only as a channel for this energy. And while it is my job to help facilitate healing, it is necessary for the client to do the work ie; listen to their intuition, actively work to change negative thought patterns, change how they treat others, etc. Reiki is for everyone and anyone. It is a balancing energy that helps restore one's physical, mental, and emotional energies.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Reiki sessions are very relaxing. They can be conducted in person or remotely over the phone/skype because energy knows no time or space.
During an in-person reiki session, I will come to your home and you will lie comfortably and fully clothed on a massage table. At your preference I can either lightly lay my hands on your body, or simply hover them over your body.
Working from the crown of your head, down to your feet, I will share the different sensations and thoughts I am experiencing. You can choose to talk with me or stay silent throughout the session.
Following the session we will take about 15-20 minutes to discuss what you felt and the experience from your perspective.
