What is reiki?
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an energy healing practice that promotes balance of the mind, body, and spirit through the transfer of life-force energy. Facilitated with deep care and non-judgment, it is a gentle healing therapy in which a practitioner places hands lightly on or over the receiver's body to facilitate a meditative state where healing and relaxation are increased.
Reiki promotes stress reduction, and is a powerful collaborator in the healing process. As a certified Level II practitioner, I’m a vessel for the energy to flow through my hands into the body of myself and others, either in person or from a distance. I personally like to think of reiki as an energy massage, where any kinks/blocks that need more life energy are brought into balance.
I came to reiki during a time in my life when I was looking for more techniques to deepen my connection to the divine & Mother Earth. As someone who experienced the reality of severe mental dis-ease I chose to explore & incorporate more holistic approaches to creating balance and wholeness within so as to see that reflected in my environment. Reiki has been a powerful way for me to connect with Self, hold non-judgmental space for Self in doing deep inner work, bring calm to my nervous system in moments of experiencing anxiety, and has been a transformative help to my ever-evolving healing process which I’d love to share, if it resonates with you.
As a reiki practitioner, I offer these practices simply as a facilitator in the natural unfolding of the healing process. Providing space for YOU, to walk through your healing process, feeling connected to the power you have within to cultivate balance within.
Who is this for?
Anyone who’s open to the healing process, seeking balance.
What can I expect?
In an in-person session we’ll have a moment to check-in, connect, relax into being present with each other. A reiki session is very similar to a physical massage, and during the process I’ll either lightly place or hover my hands on parts of the body to transfer the reiki (the technique works with or without physical contact, so it is completely up to you whether you want to experience the reiki with hands-on-technique). In my sessions I also may incorporate sound healing and aromatherapy to further create a relaxing environment.
Your focus will be to relax, breathe, and receive. Experiencing reiki is a unique experience to each individual who receives it. I invite us to trust that we will both receive exactly what is needed in a safe environment to release, trust, and be renewed.
