About Reiki

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing art that roughly translates to “universal life energy.” A reiki practitioner is trained to channel this healing energy through their hands to their client’s body, promoting relaxation and wellness, and reducing stress, anxiety and pain. Reiki is a benign energy that works on the cellular level, and is able to effect change on many planes: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Reiki is a wonderful method for silently releasing emotional and physical trauma stored within the body. Reiki works to unblock and balance the body's chakras, with the theory that if the body's energy systems are balanced, health and wellness can be attained. 

Benefits of Reiki

Since reiki works across physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes, the benefits can be tremendous. Some common ones are:

  • Enhanced quality of life

  • Mental clarity

  • Relaxation

  • Better sleep

  • Decreased anxiety

  • Pain relief

  • Releasing bad habits

  • Increased sense of well-being

  • Feeling like things will be okay

What Happens During a Session?

Clients lie fully clothed on the massage table. I scan the energy systems of your body, and then hold my hands in a series of positions over your body delivering reiki to all of your vital organs. There are positions on the front body, head and back body, although positions can be modified for pregnancy, injury or a mobility issue. At the end of the session I will scan your chakras again to ensure that they are all balanced, and we will discuss any information that came out of the session. After a reiki session, you will feel rested and restored.
