what is reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction + relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” + is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us + is what causes us to be alive.
When your energy flows freely, you can tap into unknown reserves of power. When your energy is blocked (often caused by negative thoughts, unhealed trauma, or even stress), we function at a suboptimal level.
Reiki sessions typically involve a combination of light touch + above-the-body energy sweeping or hovering, which have calming, grounding, or releasing effect. For others, it feels more like an emotional release or “lightness.”
Reiki is alleged to aid relaxation, assist in the body’s natural healing processes, as well as promote emotional, mental + spiritual wellness. It is also said to induce deep relaxation, help people cope with difficulties, relieve emotional stress + improve overall wellbeing.
This may sound a little “woo”, but many clients have felt a positive shift of some sort after only one session.
what does a typical session look + feel like?
At the beginning of the session, we bring forward any intentions.
During the session, I clear any blockages in the chakras + energetic field. I then infuse your body with healing energy + loving protection.
As the Reiki practitioner I am a channel for life force energy. As your body relaxes, it receives this energy + you are able to heal yourself. I also incorporate other healing methods, such as crystals, oracle cards + any other tools that may be beneficial for your Highest good. I will share with you any intuitive guidance, images + messages that I receive. At the end of the session, we will talk about anything that came up during the session, answer any questions + give guidance.
During a Reiki session you lie fully clothed on a massage table. I perform the treatment either through placing my hands directly on specific points on your body or holding them a few inches above. You may experience tingling, vibrations, heat, or even see colours or images, or experience different emotions. Many clients go into a deep state of relaxation or may even fall asleep.
a note on distance sessions…
A distance session is essentially the same form of healing as an in-person, the only difference it is done remotely + can be facilitated from anywhere in the world.
Energy has no barriers! It is important to understand that a distance session is just as powerful + healing as an in-person session. Distance healing is kind of like “energy wi-fi” being transmitted through the cosmos – pretty cool!
The safest way to hold Reiki sessions is via distance. There are a variety of options available + these sessions are just as effective as in-person sessions.
However, I have taken the necessary precautions to ensure that both you + I are safe during in-person sessions.
I also ask that you reschedule your in-person session if
~ you have a fever or new onset of cough or difficulty breathing
~ you have travelled out-of-province within the last 14 days
~ you have had any contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19
~ you are feeling sick
Take care of your self – more than ever, the world needs you well.
