Reiki Reiki is an ancient Japanese method of healing that uses energy to balance the body and mind. This gentle technique involves a series of hand positions placed on the client's body to free energy blockages with the intention of clearing or realigning "ki" (universal life energy). During a Reiki session subtle energy shifts take place, awakening each cell and allowing the body to surrender to complete relaxation. Reiki is a highly effective treatment for many illnesses including insomnia, PTSD, and chronic stress disorders.
What to expect Each person's experience with Reiki is different, but some common experiences are heat in the practitioner's hands, subtle pulsations, floating/drifting, and waves of pulsation throughout the body. Though the experience of Reiki differs for each person, it is common for people to fall into a deep, meditative, or dream-like state. Besides the immediate experience, you may notice changes that unfold as the day goes on such as strong digestion, a sense of being more centered, and deeper sleep that night. Reiki is done with the client fully clothed lying on a treatment table. Blankets and pillow are provided for comfort.
How often should I receive Reiki? How often we recommend Reiki depends on the clients response to the first session. People who don't have a strong reaction during their first Reiki session usually have progressively deeper experiences if they continue. Pain/illness may heal quicker and stress levels can decrease significantly when receiving Reiki regularly. Generally we recommend a series of 3-4 Reiki sessions over a period of weeks. This series gives you time to evaluate what benefits you are receiving from our sessions. Following the series, based on your ailments and lifestyle, we work together to figure out a maintenance routine that best suits your needs.
