More about Reiki

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese form of healing that is becoming increasingly popular worldwide. What makes Reiki unique is that it incorporates elements from several other alternative healing practices such as spiritual healing, auras, crystals, chakra balancing, meditation, aromatherapy, naturopathy, and homeopathy.

Reiki involves the transfer of energy from practitioner to patient to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. Reiki utilizes specific techniques for restoring and balancing the natural life force energy within the body. It is a holistic, natural, hands-on energy healing system that touches on all levels: body, mind, and spirit.

Many times a client, after experiencing Reiki treatments, will wish to learn Reiki to work with this energy themselves by taking a Reiki I course.  This can be beneficial as they may then use this stress reduction and relaxation tool anytime they wish when cost would prohibit it otherwise.

What Can I Expect During A Session?

When coming for a Reiki session, it is important to come with an open mind and to be open to receiving the universal energy.  It is hard to pinpoint what you can expect in your Reiki session.  Some clients fall asleep during their sessions while others become quite relaxed and go into a meditative state.  Overall, a Reiki session is a relaxing experience that can bring feelings of emotional and spiritual well-being.  Many people come to me with specific ailments that they would like to target, while others are just living with too much stress in their lives.  When I place my hands on clients, they frequently comment on how warm my hands are, which is an indicator of the Reiki energy flowing.

A typical setting for a Reiki session is in a quite room.  You can either sit in a chair or lay down on the Reiki table for your session, either face down or face up, which ever you are comfortable with.  A blanket can be provided, if desired.  I leave it up to the client whether or not we play music during the session.

Sessions can last anywhere from 30- to 90-minutes.  The practitioner will connect with the energy and will place their hands on the client in different hand positions.  Practitioners never touch the breasts or genital and work off the body in the energy field in these areas.

What is Distant Healing?

This is budget-friendly option that is perfect for those who require immediate attention and can benefit from short on-going doses of healing.

The sessions always start with an intention of gratitude. This reminds us that we are not the healer. We are only the witness to the transformations which are orchestrated by the presence of the universal energy in each person and occurs through an activation of the body’s own innate healing mechanisms. Although we are all quite diverse with regard to age, country of origin, and specific concerns, each client receives precisely the work most pertinent to their situation.
