What is Reiki?
Reiki is a holistic energetic healing module which focuses on aligning the spirit or energetic body to stimulate healing of the physical body. I work within the energetic points known as Chakra or Meridian Points to better align the flow of natural healing energy which, in turn, encourages the body’s natural healing capacity.
Reiki healers work within the energetic body as a whole to stimulate growth, healing and balance. Many Reiki healers also have certain specialties’ they work best with.
For instance, I have a high success rate for conditions such as Fibromyalgia (chronic pain), Crohn’s and gastritis, peptic ulcers, anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders. Other benefits to this practice include: stress reduction, relaxation, mental and emotional balance and clarity, improved recovery time, and immune system support.
Reiki was developed in Japan in the 1800’s and modernized by Reiki Master, Mikao Usui, in the early 1900’s. Reiki is considered to be an alternative therapy treatment to many physical, emotional and mental disorders, and its theory and practice is in the same family as acupuncture, aromatherapy, emotional freedom techniques (EFT) and emotional release therapy. Reiki is a no touch healing practice, and is not considered massage.
What happens in a Reiki session?
>Best held in a peaceful setting, the patient will sit in a comfortable chair or lie on a table, fully clothed. There may or may not be music, depending on the patient’s preference. The practitioner places their hands lightly on or over specific areas of the head, limbs, and torso using different hand shapes for several minutes; however long needed. The hands can be placed over 20 different areas of the body. If there is a particular injury, such as a burn, the hands may be held just above the wound. While the practitioner holds their hands lightly on or over the body, the transfer of energy takes place. During this time, the practitioner’s hands may be warm and tingling. Each hand position is held until the practitioner senses that the energy has stopped flowing. When the practitioner feels that the heat, or energy, in their hands has abated, they will remove their hands and may place them over a different area of the body.
