What is Reiki
Reiki is universal life force energy (think of ki, prana, source energy) used only for our highest good. As beings made up of energy, anything which impedes the healthy free flow of that energy can lead to stagnation and illnesses. Reiki energy supports the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies and goes where it is needed. A Reiki practitioner acts as a focus, conduit and magnifier for this energy, thanks to the attunements which we receive. The client allows the inflow of reiki energy, actively participating in their own healing and wellness. In distance healing, the energy moves unhindered through both time and space from Source, through the Reiki master, and to the recipient.
As Reiki practitioners, we strive to live a life which exemplifies the Reiki Principles, which are as follows:
- Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings.
- Just for today I will not worry.
- Just for today I will not be angry.
- Just for today I will do my work honestly.
- Just for today I will be kind to my neighbor and every living thing.
For your session, we will visit about your needs and expectations, and then you may either sit or lay down on the reiki table (fully clothed, this is not massage!). It is customary to remove one’s shoes. I will transmit reiki energy to you, using light touch if you are comfortable with that, or hands-off if you are not. This is done in silence, with a pleasant background music to facilitate relaxation. At the end of this time, during which you may find yourself falling asleep, I will gently get your attention. I ensure that we have time at the end to visit some more if you need to, along with reminders about self-care in the days following your healing session.
Who this is good for
Everyone! I prefer working with clients in person, and as such am not currently offering distance healing to new clients. Reiki distance healing is especially good for those who are deeply introverted, those who prefer to not be physically touched by strangers (or even those whom they know), those who are healing from invasive traumas, those who are home-bound, as well as those who have no access to practitioners in their area.
Beginning in July of 2021 I am offering in person sessions at my downtown practice.
I look forward to working with you on your healing journey! Namaste!
