Working with the Energy of Nature to Enrich Wellbeing
Reiki (pronounced RAY-KEY) is a Japanese form of energy healing which is now widely taught and practiced around the world.
Reiki is based on the premise that when energy becomes unhealthy, stagnant or blocked, discomfort and disease can occur. Reiki helps the energy to come into greater balance by creating a sense of overall calm and peace. This state enables the body and mind to more easily restore themselves and to cope with their environments. Regular Reiki treatment also enables a person to more readily return to this state.
Reiki works in cooperation with all other healing modalities, including traditional medicine, to create harmony and total well-being. Reiki is non-invasive and can not cause harm. It calms deeply, creating a deep state of relaxation where healing on all levels can take place. Reiki releases energy blockages that accumulate and prevent us from living a life of peace and optimal health. It is effective in providing relief to the discomfort of arthritis and other types of pain, digestion issues, anxiety and other issues, speeding healing from surgery or injury, as well as assisting in transitioning from this lifetime.
Reiki can be performed in person, hands on or at a distance. Reiki is not limited by time, space or distance. Because of this, when a person does not want to be touched, I can still offer Reiki and it will be received. Reiki healing can be transmitted from any distance--even around the world! Touch is not necessary, though most people find hands on Reiki to be very relaxing and healing.
Reiki Energy Healing promotes deep relaxation, healing and strength to any living thing. It stimulates the relaxation response in your brain and body, which then stimulates your system to begin repairing and healing itself. Many hospitals are now offering Reiki treatments to patients as a means of promoting relaxation, accelerating healing and reducing the discomfort and side effects of medical treatments and medication.

What to expect during a session--
Reiki can be given hands on, hands off or from a great distance--even across the world. You remain fully clothed, though removing your shoes may make you more comfortable. Usually Reiki is given while you are lying down, though it is possible to give a Reiki treatment while you sit in a chair. I will place my hands in a series of positions on or near your head, chest and abdomen. Reiki will go where it is needed.
During Reiki, you will become deeply relaxed, and many people fall asleep. You may find laughter or tears coming to the surface as your body and mind release stress and toxins. You may also feel in a dreamlike state as you become more deeply relaxed and you may fall asleep. This is normal and part of the process for many people. Sessions generally last an hour or so, but you can schedule a half hour, if you prefer.
What to expect after a session--
You may find that you spend more time in the bathroom for the next 24-48 hours. This is your body releasing toxins and flushing them out. Please drink extra water to encourage this process and boost the healing.
Some people find that they need a bit of extra rest over the next day or so after a Reiki session. Others are full of energy right away. Things will balance out for you after a few days. You may find your appetite decreases or increases. This does not happen with everyone, but again, this is your body balancing itself out. Follow your best judgement and your doctor's advice regarding diet.
Occasionally symptoms will temporarily become slightly worse in the first day or two. This is because your body is working to release old toxins and adjust itself into balance. This should pass after a couple of days. Please contact me if you are concerned or have questions. I am here to support your healing process and help in any way I can.
Reiki will continue to do it's healing work for up to a few days after the Reiki session ends. Be kind and gentle with yourself as your healing takes place. Call me if you have any questions at all.
