What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese relaxation technique that allows the body to relax in such a way that it heals itself. Drawing on ancient Eastern wisdom, Mikao Usui created a Reiki system in the 1800s that has since been refined. In 2014 Reiki Master/Teacher William Rand introduced Holy Fire® III Reiki.. This style of Reiki is a more subtle, yet powerful form of Reiki for today’s world. The word “Holy” within the context of Reiki has no religious meaning, but rather denotes a sense of “wholeness” felt by the recipient. What is unique and appealing about Reiki is that it is noninvasive and respects the recipient’s free will. In person Reiki uses light touch to reduce stress and tension and to activate the body’s healing system by facilitating deep relaxation. This relaxed state helps one to build resilience in order to cope with life’s ups and downs. Additionally, Reiki may help to…
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.
What Happens During A Reiki Session?
After welcoming you and ensuring COVID protocols have been met, you are invited into the Reiki room where we discuss what you'd like to work on. Then you lie down fully clothed on the Reiki table. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from comfortably lying down, then the Reiki session can proceed in a comfortable chair. I play soft, background music and accompany each session with an essential oil(s) that correspond to the chakra(s) that require the most attention. The oils are rubbed into my hands and their lovely scent is carried to the chakras to facilitate healing. Sessions may be hands on or off, depending on your preference.
I often use Crystal Therapy during the session, which is the use of specific crystals and gems. Crystal Therapy enhances the transmission of energy and provides you with extra support in your healing process.
Catalyst Healing is dedicated to helping our clients reach their full potential and live their best lives. We believe in the power of Reiki to heal the mind, body, and spirit, and we are passionate about sharing this healing modality with as many people as possible.
Holy Fire® III Reiki with Catalyst Healing
Holy Fire® III Reiki is a type of Reiki energy that is both powerful and gentle and provides purification, healing, empowerment, guidance, all while respecting your free will. It is very refined, and comes from a higher level of consciousness. Holy Fire® III Reiki develops in its receivers feelings of safety, love and nurturance, works continuously, and heals issues as they come up. This beautiful form of healing also repairs relationships, and encourages the development of healthy virtues, such as love of self, and others, kindness, patience, confidence, vitality, enthusiasm, optimism, trust, joy and peace, among others.
Distance reiki is a powerful and effective way to receive healing energy from a distance. It is perfect for those who are unable to come in for an in-person session, or for those who live far away.
Reiki is a gentle and non-invasive healing modality that is perfect for children. It can help them to relax, reduce stress, and promote healing on all levels. At Catalyst Healing, we offer both in-person and Distance Reiki sessions for children of all ages.
Animals are also very receptive to Reiki Energy, and it can be a great way to help them relax, reduce stress, and promote healing. Catalyst Healing offers both in-person and Distance Animal Reiki sessions. We have a deep love and respect for animals, and we are honored to share Reiki with them.

Distance Reiki is the practice of sending compassionate, healing energy to another person separated by distance. This type of remote healing works as well as in-person Reiki because we are all connected, as we are all made of energy, and part of a larger whole. Distance Reiki is one of the many ways to link and channel this energy for the healing benefit of others. Just as cell phones use electromagnetic radio waves to connect with other cell phones, Reiki recipients can connect with Reiki practitioners over a distance to receive Reiki.
Distance Reiki is suitable for those who cannot make it to in person Reiki sessions, including the elderly, people with mobility challenges, those who are sick and people with busy schedules. During this COVID time, distance Reiki has become a desirable healing modality as many people can enjoy the benefits of Reiki from their own home.
“Liz has a lovely grounded presence, and I also found it pleasant to be in my own space and not worry about driving.” – Sandy D.
What Happens During a Distance Reiki Session?
A distance session is scheduled for 45 minutes online. After a brief check in, I send 60 minutes of compassionate healing energy, while we are still connected. For your comfort, I recommend that you lie down or sit up comfortably in a quiet room. A candle and soft music is a nice added touch for the session. I suggest having a glass of water nearby for after the session as well. After the session has ended, we discuss what was experienced, and then disconnect. I do a routine checkup a few days following your session to see how you’re feeling.
“I did a distant Reiki session with Liz…within minutes I felt a great deal of relief. My body started to relax and my breath began to deepen…Liz is very soft spoken and cares about the suffering of others. I will see her again.” – Guillaume S.
Children today deal with a lot of pressure from social media, peers and their parents. Anxiety and depression, ear infections, respiratory infections, asthma, gastrointestinal upset, type 2 diabetes, and eating disorders thwart kids’ mental, physical and spiritual health.
Reiki can benefit children, regardless of the disorder, and can be very calming for parents and kids alike. Reiki helps kids to relax. When a child is relaxed, they feel safe. These feelings of safety help kids to move forward in their lives with confidence.
Reiki can also help…..
Support ADD/ADHD treatment
Support Autism spectrum disorders
Soothe irritability, depression and other emotional issues
Enhance relaxation & sleep
Enhance self-awareness & self-esteem
and much more…
The format of the Reiki session will depend on the child. I will always follow their lead. With younger children, I will play Reiki games with them as a warm up. With older kids and teens I will base the Reiki session around their interests.
Distance Reiki is ideal for children because, depending on the child, it can be hard to lie still on a table to receive a full Reiki treatment. Although it is ideal for your child to receive Reiki while resting or asleep, kids can receive the distance Reiki while sleeping, watching TV, gaming, playing, or engaged in any activity.
Animals bring us comfort and joy. A slobbery kiss, a rub against your legs, silly antics, a non- judgmental ear – their love for us is endless.
Animal Reiki is an ideal way to give back to your pet their unconditional love and loyalty. Like Reiki for people, Animal Reiki helps your pet relax so their body can heal.
As with a healthy person, a healthy animal will have energy flow efficiently and strongly throughout their body. Any blockages of this energy will create physical, psychological or behavioural imbalances. Animal Reiki can address these imbalances and support healing.
Animal Reiki may help with…
Emotional issues (trauma, abuse, neglect)
Fear, anxiety and trust issues
Relationships between people and their pets
Pre-post surgery support to aid recovery
End of life transition
and much more…
I schedule 1 hour Animal Reiki appointments in your home as your pet is most comfortable there. I treat your pet as an equal partner throughout the Reiki session and never force them to sit or stay to receive Reiki. Since animals are hypersensitive to energy, I always approach gently and quietly, and offer the Reiki hands off. I let them initiate hands on Reiki. If they walk away, they’ll still receive the healing they need, even if they leave the room.
Online Distance Reiki for animals is ideal for all pets as well – especially aggressive, nervous, anxious, or fearful ones. They accept healing energy without someone intruding in their space. Distant sessions work best when your pet is asleep or having quiet time so as not to be disturbed by distractions.
