What is reiki?

Rei = divine consciousness that permeates all things – subtle wisdom

Ki = life force

Reiki = spiritually guided life force energy

Reiki uses the “laying of hands” and is inspired by the idea that we can find healing and self-improvement through connecting to the more subtle layers of our energetic body. Reiki treats the whole person, including body, mind and spirit. It is an effective way to reduce stress, find relaxation, and promote well-being.

What are the benefits of reiki?

Reiki moves energy, and therefore reiki experiences can vary quite a bit. Reiki assists the body’s natural healing processes through dissolving energy blocks and clearing/centering the mind; general benefits include a sense of overall wellness and enhanced relaxation both during and after your session. Reiki sessions complement other healing modalities and are a time to set intentions, meditate, and deeply rest. Feel free to daydream, sleep, observe your breath, note sensations, or anything else – there is no single way to receive the many benefits!

What happens in a reiki session?

Sessions last approximately 75 minutes. There is a check-in and setting of intentions, a reading of the chakras, the reiki treatment, and a follow-up for observations/questions. Sessions take place on a massage table, fully clothed, with the client lying face up under a blanket. During the session, the practitioner places her hands on or near the client in a series of positions around the face, shoulders, arms, stomach, and legs/feet. Reiki touch is very light, with little pressure, and is sometimes a hover/float of the hands over the body. You are always welcome to request that the entire session be done with the floating method.
