If you look Reiki up in the dictionary it is defined as: a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being. The origin is Japanese, literally translating to,‘universal life force energy.’ Everything and everyone is made up of universal life force energy, connecting us all together. Therefore Reiki can be done with anyone from anywhere! Reiki Energy is focused in love, peace and balance. Though spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. Reiki is empowering and centered around principles promoting harmony with yourself and all in the universe around you.
Reiki can help to ease tension and stress as well as support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. In order to receive true and lasting Reiki healing, one must be open to the energy, accept responsibility for your part in the healing and take an active part in it! And this may not happen with one session. Healing happens in layers and takes commitment and an active role in making it happen. Reiki is a lifestyle.
A typical session is usually about 60 minutes long and is formatted with about 15-20 mins of discussion to start, a 30-35 mins reiki healing then 5-15 mins review of the session to end. The approach is completely intuitive however, so this breakdown may vary session by session. Quick Reiki Boost Sessions may be available as well.
For the actual session, when in-person, you will rest comfortably on a massage table with your shoes removed. Unlike massage therapy, no articles of clothing are removed, you are always fully clothed (loose, comfortable clothing is suggested). I will proceed by moving through specific standard Reiki hand positions beginning at the your head or feet. I will hover over some areas and will apply a light touch at others, depending on what energy I am feeling as well as your comfort level.
I approach Remote or Distance Healing Sessions in the same way that I do any in-person session with a few modifications. The biggest difference of course is we will not be in the same room but rather we will be meeting over video. However the goal is still the same, to have you leave our session feeling relaxed and renewed. I suggest that you find a quiet location where you can relax. You may sit or lay down, whichever is most comfortable for you.
When receiving Reiki, you may feel a warming or tingling sensation, see colors or feel nothing at all except total relaxation. At the end of our session, if there is time, and at your discretion, we will discuss all that you and I felt during the session as well as desire for future sessions.
My goal is to leave you feeling relaxed and ready to take on anything that comes your way!
I take a multidimensional approach to my Reiki sessions, just as I do for my own personal Reiki and Spiritual practice. I tailor your session to work on your specific goals and needs which we discuss together at the start of our session. Along with the actual reiki, many of my sessions involve coaching to help with healing between sessions. I take a multidimensional layered approach & follow my intuition based on our conversation and the energy felt during the session. The approach may vary every time we meet and may include the use of essential oils, crystals, meditation, music or other modalities that may fit. Now of course if we are not in person you will not be actually smelling the oils or touching the crystals however their energy will still be present.
I am very transparent with my clients and share, if desired, all I see, feel, hear, etc during the session. I love showing you how just a few sessions, whether in-person or from a distance, can make an enormous difference to your mental, emotional, spiritual and even physical health. Also I usually give a little homework to work on between sessions.
As my personal Reiki and spiritual practices evolve I will share the knowledge with my clients and our sessions will also evolve. Reiki does not end after just the one session, you may feel emotional or have some thoughts after that you may wonder about. I am available to you if you have any questions after our sessions. We are connected!
