What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese healing modality, brought to the world by the highly intuitive spiritual Master, Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900s. In Japanese, “rei” is translated as divine miraculous spirit, and “ki” is translated as force, energy, or intention.
Literally, reiki is the divine force of healing energy, and reiki practitioners are attuned and trained to bring this Universal loving energy through the hands and into the world. This energetic bond that is created between healer and client is a gentle, sacred yet grounded container that allows for healing to take place in the body in a way that generates trust, love and connection.
Because reiki is the gentle movement of Universal Love through the body, with a trusted and loving connection, this modality can heal any physical, emotional, spiritual or energetic discomforts. Typical treatments can provide relief from every day woes like acute inflammation and general discomfort; and can treat much more challenging dis-ease such as autoimmune disorders, cancer, addiction, and mental health challenges. Regular treatments will increase and improve immune function, blood flow and healing, emotional health and well-being, proper bodily detox and provide an overall sense of joy in the world.
The Reiki Principals:
Just for today, I will let go of anger.
Just for today, I will let go of worry.
Today, I will accept and give thanks for my many blessings.
Today, I will do my work honestly.
Today, I will be kind to every living creature.
How do I deliver the energy?
Through the lifestyle of lovingkindness, health and commitment to the practices of overall physical and psycho-spiritual well-being, I am delighted to be able to offer this healing energy to my clients. I have been attuned through the Usui lineage, tracing my energetic attunement to Dr. Usui himself, allowing for the energy transfer to feel very loving and gentle, yet powerful and direct.
My energy delivery style offers a shamanic twist, bringing the divine feminine to every healing session. Through these techniques, I am able to lay my hands on your body as well as offer sound healings and shamanic tools such as singing bowls and tuning forks in addition to the Reiki energy work.
What does a session feel like?
All clients have slightly different experiences. A session includes either a laying of hands on various parts of the body, or hovering of hands on various energy centers of the body to provide a light sensation of movement under the skin, and potentially a feeling of light warm pressure throughout the inside of the body. Common experiences include relaxation and release, but without the inclusion of heavy touch, making Reiki a wonderful healing modality for those who experience trauma and complex PTSD and other Highly Sensitive People.
During a session, you may feel a desire to twitch, wiggle, yawn, exhale deeply, cry, laugh and more! These are all ways that the body releases dense energy naturally. Through these various releases, after a session you can expect to feel energized and renewed, with a feeling of lightness in body and mind.
