Reiki

What is Reiki?

Reiki, translated as universal life energy, is a form of energy healing discovered in Japan in the late 1800s. It provides stress reduction and relaxation while clearing energy blockages that can be held out in the aura or in the body. Reiki clears negative, stagnant energy returning the flow to its natural state allowing the mind, body, and spirit to heal itself as designed.

What can one expect during a Reiki session?

Reiki energy, once activated, flows through the practitioner’s hands and to the recipient. Hands can be held out in the aura as well as placed lightly on the body. This is often done in a space with soft lighting and music providing a relaxing environment. The hands are often held in one spot for several minutes until the flow of energy shifts and the practitioner will then move to another location. Each session is unique and experiences range from peaceful relaxation to feeling warmth, energy movement and release, tingling or pulsing energy, images, sleep, and more.
