WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for relaxation that also promotes healing. The term “Reiki” comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things. It's done through touch or by placing the hands over someone. A warm soothing energy flows from the hands into the client, promoting relaxation and releasing tension.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY FIRST SESSION?
Come as you are. There are no requirements for preparation to receive Reiki. If you have the option of wearing comfortable clothing then do so but it's not required. Unlike massage, clothing is kept on for the session.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST SESSION?
If it is your first time experiencing Reiki, I will give an explanation to both the practice and how the session will flow. We will take time to review any concerns, questions or boundaries you may have. Some common experiences shared are deep sense of relaxation, warmth, and tingling sensations.
DO YOU HELP TREAT TERMINAL OR CHRONIC ILLNESS?
YES. Reiki is a wonderful tool to help in treating terminal or chronic illnesses such as anxiety, chronic pain, cancer, auto immune disease, and mental health. Reiki reduces stress and promotes relaxation, therefore enhancing the body's ability to heal. It must be noted that Reiki is complementary and not a replacement to medical treatment.
WHAT DOES THE CONTINUING JOURNEY LOOK LIKE?
Experiences vary from person to person and session to session as life can present us with a range of experiences and emotions at any time. We will continuously review what the goals and intentions are along the way to meet your needs. Treatments can be a full body flow or can be isolated to one specific area. Reiki can also be given to the self once you are certified. If this sounds ideal, then talking about completing a class would be good. I am able to teach and certify groups or individuals.
