Reiki, a Japanese word which means "universal life energy", is transferred when the hands of the practitioner are held above or gently on the receiver, the energy created during this time "turns on" the bodies natural ability to heal itself, it travels deep into the person where illness, or stagnate energy resides and helps to clear the blockages and returns the body to balance. Additionally, Reiki will help to calm & promote optimum health & wellbeing.
What does it mean to transfer, or share energy? Think about it, what do you do when you have a headache, or pain, or maybe your child, or pet for that matter? You bring your own hand to that area, and hold it or rub it - right? Innately we just know how to heal ourselves, we bring our own healing energy to where it hurts. In a Reiki session, our combined energies increase the ability to heal, accelerating the healing process. Our own beautiful hands are the greatest healing instruments ~ ever!
My experience with Reiki has been truly life changing for me. The sense of healing, comfort and well being that I feel whether it is when I work on myself or clients is very tangible. Everyone has a very different experience when having a Reiki session, being open to the experience, allowing yourself to be part of it enhances your overall session. (If you are curious, simply ask me for a complimentary 10 minute session added onto a massage).
Reiki is practiced while the client is fully dressed, Reiki can be added to any wellness session I offer.
I am a Reiki Level II practitioner, trained in the Usui Tradition under the guidance of my Reiki Master, Liz Donohue.
