What is Reiki?

dreamstime_m_59571087

“Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. 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.” The International Centre for Reiki Training

What to expect at your appointment

A Reiki session is offered to you while fully clothed as you relax on a treatment table. Most commonly, Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with my hands placed and held on a series of locations on your head and front and back of the torso. The placement of my hands will never be intrusive or uncomfortable (we can go over all the hand placements before our first session if you feel that would be helpful).  Additional hand placements on your limbs can be done as needed. For example, any area that is feeling sensitive or that has experienced trauma. I can hold my hands just above the body if preferred, we can discuss your personal preference when we meet!  This is a non-intrusive yet powerful treatment and can be done from a distance as well for my Skype clients!

I personally work from a place of intuition, so often don’t follow traditional hand placements and will just let the Reiki energy guide me to where it is most needed.

Our sessions will range anywhere from 15-60 minutes depending on what is needed.
