Reiki- The universal life energy that flows through all things.
Reiki is a subtle healing technique using spiritually guided life force energy. It’s origin was founded in Japan and the word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. The basis of Reiki is not affiliated with any religious or belief systems and everyone is able to incorporate it into their lives to help promote balance and wellness within themselves.
My goal is to prepare a space of calm and warm golden light where uplifting positive energy surrounds my clients. While I will be providing and holding this sacred space of love and light, Reiki will help to open any energetic blockages and help you to find an inner calm and peace that is conducive to promoting self-healing and wellness.
Reiki is an effective way to help reduce stress & promote relaxation on each level of the mind, body, spirit & emotions. When the mind and body are calm & relaxed, the body is then able to work on any repairs, allowing the mind to function with more clarity. It can assist the body in providing an environment to facilitate healing & is a wonderful compliment to traditional medicine.
What happens during a Reiki session?
After a brief introduction you will be asked to lay on a massage table fully clothed. I will have pillows and blankets available for you for your comfort. Soft music will be played in the background and the lights will be turned down, so you are able to fully relax. At any time if you need anything during your session, you are more than welcome to ask. This time is dedicated to you and what your body needs.
I will use gentle hand pressure on your head and shoulder area as well as your feet if you are comfortable with it. The other had positions will be above your body with no actual touch. Some people will fall asleep during their session and this is fine, Reiki will still work on you even if you are sleeping. Reiki sessions typically take between 45 min-1 hour.
How should I prepare for my Reiki session?
You do not need to come any earlier than your appointment time, just make sure to arrive to your session on time. For your session, you are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing, remove glasses, shoes and any unnecessary heavy jewelry. Please remember to turn off any phones or other electronic devices so there are no interruptions during your time. If possible, you can try to plan to allow 15-20 minutes of quiet time after your session is complete in order to integrate and enjoy the relaxation, calmness and feelings of clarity.
What does Reiki feel like?
Different people have different responses to Reiki. You may feel sensations in the area of hand placements such as heat, slight tingling or cold. You may also feel the flow of energy through you and have visions of colors, pictures, memories or feel heaviness or lightness. Even if you do not have these sensations during your session, Reiki is still working though the energy flow in your body.
Do I have to understand Reiki in order for it to work?
No, you do not have to fully understand how it works in order for you to experience the benefits of Reiki. It can be difficult to grasp the concepts of it, but the best way to become familiar to it is to experience it first hand and being open to receiving the energy on some level.
Does Reiki have any religious affiliations?
No, Reiki is not associated with any religious organizations or belief systems. Energy and love is universal, just as Reiki is. Everyone from all different backgrounds are able to practice and use Reiki.
How Much does it cost?
Each reiki session costs $50
