Rei = Spirit Energy, Ki = Life Force Energy, Reiki = Universal Life Force Energy. It is a hands-on healing modality.
The easiest way to describe Reiki is to liken it to a relaxation technique.
The act of placing hands-on for comfort, pain relief, and healing is a natural and instinctive act. The touch of another’s hands brings about an immediate feeling of comfort we can all relate to, conveying warmth, caring and love. This simple act of compassionate touch is the basis for all energetic hands-on therapies such as Healing Touch, Therapeutic Touch, and Reiki.
Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that restores a sense of balance and well-being to the human energy system. This intelligent, spiritually-guided healing energy addresses both the causes and effects of disease. The Reiki healing system is often experienced as warmth; it relieves pain, brings about relaxation, and provides relief from stress. Reiki treatments given during illness promote faster recovery. Those recovering from an accident or conventional surgical procedures will also benefit. Many people who suffer from chronic pain and/or headaches report enormous benefit as well.
Reiki energy can greatly enhance one’s quality of life, even for those with long-term illness. Reiki is used effectively as an addition to conventional medical treatment, and can reduce physical and emotional pain while creating a feeling of health and well-being.
What to expect: You are fully clothed during the session, you lay comfortably on a massage table, on your back to start. I place my hands on your body, the hands may also be held above the body, depending on what energy is warranted during the session. The hand positions start at the head, and move down the body. The back body may be worked on too. You may feel sensations such as warmth from my hands. The treatment creates a strong energy flow which helps removes blockages in the physical body, and can help to speed recovery, and even lessen or eliminate chronic physical and/or emotional pain. Often a session will leave you feeling completely relaxed, similar to the feeling you have after receiving a massage, or waking up from a perfect nap. It is energizing, refreshing, and healing!
Essential oils, stones, visualizations and affirmations are often used during a session to encourage movement and balance in the energy centers of the body, which result in a calm mind and relaxed body.
Session includes: a full 60 minutes on the table, a consultation before, and a review after the session.
Total time 75 - 90 minutes.
