Reiki is a form of energy healing that originated in Japan in its modern form by Dr. Usui in the late 1800’s. It is used to promote relaxation, reduce stress and anxiety, and help reawaken and activate your energy (energetic life force). The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese characters, Rei meaning spirit or soul, ki meaning energy or life force. Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen energetic life force flows through us all. If your energetic life force is low, you are more susceptible to stress, illness and dis-ease. If it is high, you are typically healthy, vibrant and shining!
Why It's Nice
Reiki is a simple and safe method to balance energies and bring calm. Reiki can work in conjunction with all other medical and/or therapeutic techniques. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness, especially stress and anxiety. Did you know that stress causes or worsens all illness? So by lessening stress you are protecting your body, mind and energy. See client testimonials below.
What a Session is Like
A treatment consists of sitting or laying comfortably while the Reiki practitioner performs light, hands on and off touch, around your head, face, neck, heart, abdomen, arms and legs while directing Reiki, the intelligently guided energetic life force, to work for your highest good. Treatment can also be done at a distance (e.g. you are in Boston and I am in California while performing the treatment on you). Sessions are suggested once a week and are either 45 or 75 minutes.
I am a two-time Level II trained Reiki practitioner who can perform Reiki in person or at a distance. Level II certification is the highest level of training besides a Reiki Master who can train other practitioners. By two-time trained I mean that I went through the Level II training two different times with two Reiki Masters. Each person trains in their own style and I wanted to get a feel for more than one. I have been Level II certified and giving Reiki treatments since 2008.
Types of Sessions
You could choose to have a standard Reiki session, or I also offer Reiki combined with Restorative Yoga and Acupressure.
“I felt warmth and tension releasing in the areas where your hands were.”
“After our last session I had one of the deepest and most sound sleeps that night. I fell right to sleep and woke up feeling rested and recharged. Also my neck and shoulder pain felt lifted.”
"I've never slept as well as last night.. I feel lighter, like there's nothing heavy on me. I can't wait for our next session."
“I was very relaxed throughout the whole experience… I kept feeling hot and cold internally and externally. When I opened my eyes I remembered where I had been when I first started so I was definitely transformed to another place.”
“I was in much more of a meditative state, feeling calm and steady throughout the session. I feel very relaxed now after my treatment.”
“I feel more connected, centered and calm.”
“During the session I felt completely relaxed and for the first time in the day very aware of my breathing. Throughout the session I experienced a feeling of heat rising through my body, leaving and re-entering mainly in the arms and shoulders. It’s left me with a very calm and peaceful state of mind.”
