What is Reiki?
Reiki is a hands on energy healing practice, originating in Japan, that raises vibrations.
'Rei' means the wisdom that comes from Higher Self, Universal Intelligence or God-Consciousness, depending on your beliefs. 'Ki' (similar to Chi in Chinese or Prana in Sanskrit) means universal life force and refers to the non physical energy that animates all living things. So reiki is life force energy led by higher consciousness.
In the practice of reiki, the practitioner acts as a channel to flow reiki energy into the body of the recipient. The reiki goes where it’s needed to bring mind, body and spirit to optimal levels.
What are the benefits of Reiki?
We are not just flesh and bone, we're also energy. When energy centers in our body are blocked or low in vibration, we are more susceptible to illness, depression, cloudiness, insecurity, moodiness and other negative effects. Reiki operates on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels to balance energy and connect you with higher consciousness. Specifically, reiki can...
provide deep, supreme relaxation, allowing the body to release stress and tension
provide supported space to let go and connect with self on deeper levels
raise vibrational energy through balancing the chakra system
cleanse and clear energy blockages
decrease feelings of depression
decrease anxiety and/or mental spin
aid in more sound and restful sleep
aid in pain management for acute or chronic issues (reiki never replaces but can complement professional medical care)
assist the body in cleansing itself of toxins
aid in spiritual growth and emotional clearing
help heal a broken heart
help release limited beliefs, about self and environment
contribute to a more open frame of mind and heart
illuminate the interconnection between mind, body and spirit
increase intuition and awareness of the subtle energies within self, environments and the messages therein
What is a session like?
Reiki is a powerful but subtle and gentle energy; the experience of receiving reiki is supremely relaxing. Recipients lie clothed and face up on a massage table while receiving the gentle placement of hands on the body in areas correlated to the chakras (energy centers). The table is sometimes heated to aid in deep relaxation; blankets and pillows are offered for the same purpose. Soft music, sounds, smells and essential oils aid in providing a supportive and transportive experience.
Reiki is experienced differently from person to person. Some feel a sense of deep peace and drift to sleep. Others feel a warm or tingling sensation. There's no right or wrong way to experience it, your body knows what it needs and the reiki energy provides it.
Reiki is available in 60 min or 90 min sessions.
60 min sessions include intake and reiki. 90 min sessions include intake, reiki and a discussion of your energy including a review of your chakra system.
*First time clients are required to book a 90 minute session on their first visit to allow for the full intake and post reiki experience.
