Things to Know
What is Reiki
The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy. In fact, Reiki will work whether you believe in it or not.
Reiki is beneficial not only for those who are in poor health to recover from their conditions , but also for healthy people to maintain good health.
Reiki balances body and spirit in a structured way through light, gentle, non-intrusive touch, compassionate intention and regard., mind, heart
You are living energy and possess the healing energy.already. But when your energy is somehow weak, Reiki will help with your living energy to heal whatever you are facing.
Reiki is not a miracle treatment but if you trust the process, you will get the result. The purpose of Reiki is to allow us to peel back the layer of unwelcome stuff we have accumulated over time.

What happens in a Reiki session?
When you come in for your Reiki session, you will complete a confidential client history form, that outlines the areas in your body and life that you would like the session to focus on. This will also help me monitor your progress from session to session.
You will then lie down, in a relaxed manner, fully clothed on a massage table. I will cover you up in a warm blanket, and you will start relaxing, and drifting away.
Reiki is a safe and gentle healing technique that incorporates a series of hand positions either directly on or just above the body. During a Reiki session you may feel a sense of inner peace, calmness and deep relaxation.
Common physical sensations that one experiences during a Reiki session include: heat, tingling vibrations, cool gentle breeze and movement of energy throughout the body. Generally people relax so deeply that they fall into a meditative state or even asleep.
It is in this state that deep levels of healing can occur so the more frequently one experiences Reiki, the more effective it is, and the stronger the healing effects.
What should I bring?
Just yourself ! If you would like to bring refreshments or a snack, you are welcome to do so. Water will be provided for you at the healing studio.
Can children come?
You know your child the best! Sometimes the duration of a reiki session which is a minimum of 60mins can be hard on a wiggly kid- but some older kiddos and teenagers love the experience. So long as they can remain lying down on the massage table for the entire period, they should be fine!
Please be aware that reiki sessions are a deeply restful and meditative experience for most attendees so if your child is unable to participate for that long a time, email me and we can make an arrangement for a shorter event!
