reiki-1477050_960_720Reiki is an alternative form a medicine which uses vibrational healing to promote balance throughout the human system. Reiki does not involve physical manipulation or the ingestion or application of any substances, but works with the subtle vibrational field thought to heal and balance the body.

A regular Reiki sessions can help you feel more balanced and grounded in your life. It can help with stress, pain management, improving your sleep and overall well being. It can help connect you deeper to yourself.

I work with clients to help them find peace, balance and healing in their body on a physical and emotional level. I work with trauma survivors using trauma sensitive techniques to help clients feel safe to heal.

What does the session consist of?

A complete Reiki session is offered to a fully clothed recipient who is lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably supported in a chair. I will place my hands gently above your body and it will feel very relaxing. You can gently close your eyes through the 60 minute session and you will notice how your breath and mind become calm throughout the session. There is no movement on your behalf, just entering into a state of relaxation.

What might I experience?

“I feel very refreshed and seem to be thinking more clearly.” “I think I fell asleep.” “I can’t believe how hot your hands got!” “I feel more relaxed than even after a massage.” “My headache is gone.” These are some of things people typically say after a Reiki session.

Some people fall into a deep, sleeplike meditative state. Sometimes the experience of Reiki is dramatic, while for other people, the first session in particular may be uneventful, although they feel somehow better afterward. The most common experience is an almost immediate release of stress and a feeling of deep relaxation.

Reiki is cumulative and even people who don’t notice much the first time usually have progressively deeper experiences if they continue. Besides the immediate experience of the Reiki, you may notice other changes that continue to unfold as the day goes on: perhaps stronger digestion, a sense of being more centered and poised and less reactive, and sleeping deeply that night.
