What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing of the mind, body, and spirit. If one's life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki is a very specific form of energy healing, in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body, as in “laying on of hands.” According to many versions of its origin, Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese seeker of spiritual truths, brought the Reiki method of healing into human awareness in 1922.
In a Reiki session, the practitioner is seeking to transmit Universal Life Energy to the client. The intention is to create deep relaxation, balance the chakras, to help speed healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms you may be experiencing. It has been used to treat all dis-ease and is extremely effective at removing energetic/emotional blockages.
What to expect in a Reiki session?
Upon arrival, you will fill out an intake form, then I will ask you a few questions related to your intention for the session and give you a rundown of what to expect during it. The treatment room will be prepared for you: there will be a Reiki bed with freshly washed sheets, a blanket, an eye mask, some crystals and music playing from a speaker. You will be expected to be on the Reiki bed for an hour so please wear something comfortable. Your comfort is the priority, so take your time to settle in, relax and breathe.
Most of the time, an energy session is described as a sensory experience. You might start seeing colors, experience twitching, tingling sensations, sensation of floating, find your body warming or cooling or feel waves of energy/electricity running through the body. You might find yourself in a deep meditative state, fall asleep or process emotions during the session. Please know, that all of the above is normal and generally, Reiki treatment is a very relaxing, peaceful, restorative experience.
I use hand-off and hand-on Reiki hand positions during the treatments so If you do not want to be touched, please let me know at the beginning of your session.
If you have allergies or you are sensitive to essential oils or smells like sage, palo santo, lavender, eucalyptus etc, please let me know as early as possible, preferably before you arrive.
Sound-healing and vibrational therapy tools like tuning forks and singing bowls will be used as a part of the treatment.
If at any time during your treatment, you feel uncomfortable, please let me know and we will take a break or stop the session.
If you need to use a bathroom before or during the session, you are welcome to do so.
