What is Reiki

Reiki is a beautiful and amazing form of Energy Healing. It was discovered by
Mikao Usui in March of 1922, and is now known world wide. I see Reiki as pure,
clean, simple LOVE. It helps to rejuvenate the overworked body, it helps to
clear the busy mind, and most of all, it helps to heal us holistically in our
physical, mental and emotional bodies. Many clients come in to my studio simply to relax. I have heard several times that my clients find a reiki treatment to be even more relaxing than a massage or acupuncture! It takes the weights of this heavy world from our tired bones. It gives our spirit a chance to speak to us clearly while we rest. Some have emotional release while laying on the table, some simply sleep. There is no right or wrong to reiki. It works every time. You don’t have to believe that it will work for it to do its magic. It just IS. It
just DOES. Reiki is guided by Spirit. It can not hurt you or do harm in any way.
It is an excellent supporter of ANY medical issues that you may be treating with Western Medicine. It is practiced in over 800 hospitals in the United States.

What does a treatment look like?

There are several different things that might happen during a reiki session, but typically you will just lay on the cozy massage table, fully clothed, and I will rest my hands on different parts of your body. I always like to start with a short
meditation to get your breathing to slow and your mind to focus inside
rather than on the outside world. Many people fall right to sleep, some
just rest. It usually only takes just a few minutes for the outside world to
totally fall away.

If it is appropriate, I may give you a healing attunement, where you will be able to work on releasing anything that you have been holding onto that is no longer serving you. If you are coming in for a specific physical pain, I will focus most of the session on that area. Sometimes there is a mental component associated with the pain or injury. We can explore that if you feel you want to. Sometimes people don’t like to talk about the things that are bothering them. This is a perfect way to let go and do work on a very deep level, without having to share what it is that you are dealing with. It’s very private and personal, and I am just there to hold the space and give support.
