More about Reiki

Rei-ki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “soul, spirit” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki means “spiritually guided life force energy.”

Reiki is a gentle, hands-on Japanese healing technique for stress reduction and deep relaxation, and it also promotes healing. Reiki helps open up, heal and encourage a healthy relationship with oneself. Clients often report a feeling of serenity, deep relaxation and a strong feeling of support as the Reiki moves through the body.
The Reiki energy helps clear, heal and create harmony between the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual bodies. Reiki is guided into the bodies to open, heal and clear the aura (outside the body) and the energy channels (meridians) and chakras, or energy centers (inside the body).  

Chakra literally means "wheel of light," and there are six main chakras inside the body (and one above), corresponding to specific emotions, responsibilities, elements, glands, colors, musical notes and organs. Chakras can become overactive or underactive, creating an imbalance in the energy system, and eventually causing physical pain, dis-ease and suffering in the body and mind. The goal is to balance the chakras, and to understand at a deeper level that where we're at, right now, is exactly where we're suppose to be.

Reiki radiates love and light into the
physical, mental, emotional and
spiritual bodies.

Creating positive intentions and affirmations promote self-improvement. 
If we release ideas that do not serve
us anymore, we create space to explore our True and Highest Self.

During a session, clients have experienced tingling, a gurgling stomach, body temperature variation, subtle muscle twitching, sensations in the energy channels, visions, a feeling of ‘out of body’ and relief from pain. All of these sensations and feelings are safe and do not cause harm. They are the results of energy moving through, waking up and clearing the bodies.

After a session, it is important to move slowly and with mindfulness, as most clients experience an ethereal, lightheaded feeling. Take the time to nourish the body with plenty of water. If the body has released a lot of stuck energy, the day of and the day after the session, you may need to rest more than usual. Know that this feeling will pass, and that it’s ok. Depending on what’s been going on in your life, you may want to consider a series of follow up sessions. I recommend daily meditation to connect to your Highest Self, enjoyable exercise, an organic/fresh diet, plenty of sleep, and positive, nurturing friends.
