Reiki Energy Sessions

The Healing Art of Touch

Reiki (pronounced rey-key) is an energy healing modality that was developed in Japan in the early 1900's but has been a part of most developing cultures throughout the world. The word Reiki has two parts, Rei (Spiritual Wisdom) and Ki (Life Energy).  To put this into other terms, the human soul/energy contains intuitive knowledge (Rei) and the energy of the universe provides our life energy (cellular metabolism). In science, we refer to this as the biofield. 

Reiki Treatment

Biofield therapy includes Healing Touch (used by trained nurses), Reiki, Qigong, therapeutic touch, Pranic healing, and Johrei.  These forms of energy practice are among the most ancient forms of healing but are only recently re-emerging as a practice alongside modern medicine therapies.  As a molecular and cellular physiologist, I have a unique understanding of the movement of energy in the human body and its requirement for balance to maintain health and wellness.  As a Reiki I/II practitioner I can discuss with my clients their needs, expectations, and the role of Reiki (healing energy) in physiology.

Treatment Session Information

What to Expect

Reiki provides healing of the body, mind, and spirit.  Those terms may mean different things to different people so we use our first session to discuss your understanding and set specific goals.  Reiki is not a religious practice nor is it a good/bad energy practice.  Energy IS; it can not be good or bad. Our goal is to provide energy balance and movement throughout the body, this can lead to improved relaxation, immune responses, sleep patterns, and healing.

How often do I need Reiki?

Reiki can be performed daily, you can not "overuse" Reiki energy. As with any practice or exercise, the more you use it the greater your benefits.  You can come as often as you would like for Reiki sessions.  In home sessions can also be scheduled after several in-studio sessions if we feel you will benefit more from being in your home environment.  You can request Reiki for friends or family members in hospital, hospice, etc as well.  All of these options can be used as often as needed.

What is included in each session?

Each Reiki session includes energy balance of our therapy space to create a safe environment for energy healing.  After that, we complete Byosen scanning (energy scan to detect imbalance) and chakra balance using the Reiki II Power symbol.  Typically, a 12-position Reiki session will be used but this may be modified based on the information obtained during the byosen scan.  The session concludes with aura cleansing (separating the incompatible energy from your biofield).
