What is Reiki?
A Reiki session may help ease tension and stress and help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels- physical, emotional and spiritual. A session is pleasant and relaxing and is most often utilized for one’s own personal wellness.
Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means“ Energy”.
It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. A Reiki session usually is between 30 and 90 minutes in length. The session is performed by a Reiki Practitioner (RP or RMT) using specific Reiki hand positions.

Description of a Typical Session
A session is 30 to 90 minutes long. During your first session we will take some time to discuss what to expect and more importantly what you are looking to address or focus on during the session.
For the actual session, you will rest comfortably on a massage table on your back with your shoes removed. Reiki can be performed while sitting comfortably in a chair as well. Unlike massage therapy, no articles of clothing are removed and you are always fully clothed; loose, comfortable clothing is suggested. A session can either be hands-on, where I apply a light touch during the session, or hands-off where I hold my hands slightly above your body. If you prefer not to be touched you can let me know before we begin.
The session will then proceed with me moving through specific standard Reiki hand positions beginning at the your head or feet. A recipient of Reiki might feel a warming sensation or a tingling during the session or nothing at all but sheer relaxation.
The session should be very pleasant, relaxing and invigorating.
What is it Used to Treat?
Reiki is a great tool for stress reduction and relaxation. Many people use Reiki for wellness. Reiki is not a cure for a disease or illness, but it may assist the body in creating an environment to facilitate healing. Reiki is a great tool to use as a complement to traditional medicine and is practiced in many hospitals and medical care settings.
Many times a client, after experiencing Reiki treatments, will wish to learn Reiki to work with this energy themselves by taking a Reiki I course. This can be beneficial as they may then use this stress reduction and relaxation tool anytime they wish when cost would prohibit it otherwise. (1)
