"Reiki" (pronounced "ray-key"), is the Japanese word for "Universal Life Energy." Reiki is an energy healing treatment that works holistically; on the whole body, mind, and spirit. Not a system of religious beliefs, Reiki is simply a relaxing treatment whereas natural healing vibrations are transmitted through the hands of a Reiki practitioner (acting as a conduit) to the body of the recipient. The purpose of a Reiki treatment is to relieve stress and pain, induce relaxation, release emotional blockages, accelerate natural healing, balance subtle body energies, and support other medical modalities including traditional therapies.
Reiki does not replace, but rather is easily integrated with any medical treatment and other therapies to assist in activating a person’s inner healing potential. Reiki is now being used in a growing number of hospitals and clinics throughout the United States and throughout the world, including the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins Hospital, the University of Maryland Medical Center, and Colombia University Medical Center to name a few.
What to expect - I no longer offer sessions, however, I wanted to share with you what my process was so you have an idea about Reiki -
This is set up in my home, and my goal is to make you as comfortable and at home as possible. The setting is important because I want you to be relaxed. Wear comfortable clothing, and come with an open heart and mind for whatever it will bring. You will stay fully clothed, although taking off your shoes (and socks if you are okay with it) is recommended.
The whole process takes approximately an hour - about 45 minutes on the table (a little longer if I cover your back as well). I'll have you fill out a quick client intake form when you get there and address any questions/concerns you may have. I typically only touch from your neck up and from your knees down, but will modify based on your specific needs.
When I start, you simply lay on the table. I will do my own meditations to clear my head and be 100% focused on healing love and comfort for you. Most people simply close their eyes and rest. As I move my hands over you, you may experience sensations such as warmth, seeing colors or visions, or simply feeling a peace or calm run over you. You may share your experience or keep it private.
This is about you and your healing, and can be whatever you make it. At the very least, this is an opportunity for you to simply rest, feel the power of someone sending love your direction and being focused on your well-being, and to feel positive touch on your head and your feet. Simply those three things can be the most powerful healing modules I've experienced, and can have a great impact on your everyday life. If you are skeptical or want to dig deeper into this, I dig deeper into it and Christianity and science here.
We all need support and love in our lives, and I'm honored and happy to do that for you and talk with you more about it - feel free to contact me here.
