What is Reiki? The best translation for the Japanese word Reiki, pronounced ray-key, is "spiritually guided life energy." Reiki is a form of energy medicine that reduces stress, promotes relaxation, and restores balance, thus supporting the body's ability to heal itself. Reiki always works for the highest good. There are no contraindications for Reiki since Reiki always supports optimal wellness.
Reiki is a wonderful complement to medical and or psychological treatment. In fact, Reiki is used in many hospitals before and after surgery to aid in recovery. Reiki improves the results of treatments, may reduce the amount of medicine required, especially pain medication, and can reduce side-effects.
What to expect with Reiki ? During an in - person Reiki treatment, you will be in a lie down position unless you prefer to sit in a chair. You will be fully clothed but will remove your shoes,jewelry, watch and belt. We will create a soothing environment with your choice of music. You will be made as comfortable as possible with a pillow,bolster and blanket. We will discuss what needs healing and what you are hoping to get from the session.
You will be asked if you prefer a hands-on or hands-off treatment. You will relax with your eyes closed as I move my hands to different areas of the body. My hands will remain still in each hand position as Reiki energy flows through my palms to you.
Every body is unique, so individual experiences with Reiki vary. You might not feel anything; you might feel temperature changes; you might feel tingling; you might fall asleep-all experiences are normal. We allow time at the end for you to ask questions, talk about your experiences, and ground any new awareness.
