Reiki is a Japanese hands-on healing practice that encourages universal life energy to flow through the hands of the practitioner and into the body of the client. This connection allows the body to relax and to initiate its own powerful healing response, in turn balancing the body, mind, and spirit. Reiki treatments promote peace, rest, and can clear energetic blocks in the chakras. Reiki is supportive for working through mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual distress.
A typical Reiki healing session begins with the client lying down on a massage table, fully clothed. Treatments are one hour in length unless otherwise specified with the practitioner. The practitioner will provide light touch on Reiki points in your body. As Reiki energy is channeled through the practitioner, you may achieve a higher state of well-being and relaxation. You may experience physical sensations, such as vibrational tingling, or feel energetic releases. You will walk away feeling lighter, balanced, and more open to all that life has to offer.
