We are made of energy. Every living cell in our body pulses with it. This energy is what makes us alive and vibrant. Our interactions in life involve an intricate dance of energies with all that we come in contact with. Negative forces in our environment, such as chemical exposure and emotionally damaging experiences, can cause the flow of energy within us to slow or to stop altogether. These blockages in flow can lead to stress and disease. Reiki treatments work to restore a healthy balance within the body’s energy pathways and to remove the negative energies that place burden on our overall well-being.
The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words – Rei, meaning “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power”, and Ki, meaning “life force energy”. The practice of Reiki is “spiritually guided life force energy”. It is a holistic, non-invasive therapy that promotes healing of mind, body and spirit.
Reiki treatments take place in my home-based healing room. You will lie fully clothed on a heated, comfortable massage table. The lights will be dim, candles lit and soft music will play in an effort to promote maximum relaxation. During the healing session, I will place my hands lightly on or slightly above your body. I am able to tune in to your energy pathways and allow my intuition to guide me to the areas that require the most attention. What one experiences during a Reiki treatment will vary from person to person. Most are able to reach a state of deep relaxation and some become so relaxed that they fall asleep. The sensation of energy healing is often described as a warm, glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds you, leaving you with a strong sense of peace and well-being.
Some of the many benefits of Reiki healing include: deep relaxation, stress and pain relief, energy renewal, accelerated healing, deepened spiritual connection, strengthened sense of self, joy and renewed hope, and clarity and insight about personal issues.
