Reiki is a Japanese relaxation technique that allows that body to relax in such a way that it heals itself. The word “Reiki” (pronouncd raykee) comes from the Japanese word “Rei” which means universal life and “Ki”which means energy.

Reiki is based on the idea that we are all emotional, mental, physical and spiritual beings and sometimes one or more of these parts of us gets "blocked." A block is something that prevents energy from flowing efficiently through us. Such examples include: the loss of a loved one or pet, having a breakup, losing a job or having a stressful one, having an accident or illness, experiencing anger, jealousy or other heavy emotions. Often we replay these experiences or emotions. The replaying means they are stuck and preventing us from being happy and healthy. Science has shown that emotional trauma can lead to physical aliments. Reiki works on moving the stuck energy that underlies the physical ailment. Reiki is not to be used as a substitute for advice and therapy from a medical practitioner, but rather, as a complementary relaxation technique that supports Western medicine.

✓ manage chronic pain
✓ reduce anxiety and depression
✓ enhance learning and memory

What Happens During A Reiki Session?

After welcoming you and ensuring COVID protocols have been met, we talk about what you would like to address during the Reiki session. I then invite you into the Reiki room where you'll lie fully clothed on a massage table. During the Reiki session, I place my hands in a series of positions from the crown of the head to the feet. Reiki then passes through me to you.

Many experience tingling, warmth, and sometimes cold. During the treatment your body enters a deeply relaxed state at which time the parasympathetic nervous system becomes activated to heal the body and mind. Clients often fall in and out of sleep or feel as though they are in a deep meditative state. Sometimes clients have amazing daydreams!
