What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing art. It is a holistic, non-invasive technique that encourages well being and health on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level.

Reiki is a form of healing, or energy therapy. The Reiki practitioner channels divinely guided energy that flows through the practitioner to the receiver. This divine universal life force helps the body's own energy system to heal and strengthen itself. Reiki energy adjusts itself according to your needs, so you receive exactly what you need, where you need it.

Reiki is effective at reducing stress and providing total relaxation, while helping to heal the whole person.Studies also prove that healing or energy therapies can aid significantly in reducing pain, anxiety, and depression.


What can Reiki do for me?

A Reiki treatment has many benefits.

Reiki gives an overall feeling of relaxation, peace and well-being. Reiki also balances your chakras and allows your inner guidance to assist in the healing process.

Reiki is very beneficial to those in a hospice situation, or those near the end of their physical life. It creates an easier transition by providing relaxation and peace to those about to pass over.


What is a Reiki treatment like?

Reiki treatments may include soft music, fragrant candles, or crystals, depending upon your wishes.

During a Reiki treatment, or session, you, (the client,) stay fully dressed and rest in a comfortable position on a massage table. A blanket is available if needed, as your body temperature may fluctuate during the treatment.

My hands are placed in the air above your body. Then, beginning at your head and working slowly down to your feet I scan your body's energy field, allowing divine energy to flow through me, balancing and harmonizing your energy. I may feel areas of your body where energy is not flowing freely and I will then concentrate more in those areas. This will help to restore the of chi, or energy, in these areas. It may be necessary at times for my hands to lightly touch you, however I will never intrude on any areas considered private.

Reiki healing energy is a universal life force. I am simply the channel of that energy. It flows through me to the person receiving treatment. It is your own body and your own energy that uses Reiki energy to heal and balance itself. The Reiki energy flows to where ever it is needed in your body, releasing energy blockages and promoting healing.

There will be time both before and after your treatment to discuss any concerns, feelings, or experiences that either of us wish to share. The Reiki experience is different for each person, so feel free to ask questions about Reiki in general, or about what to expect from a Reiki treatment.
