What is Reiki
Reiki is a gentle energy therapy that helps recipients lower stress levels and promotes relaxation. In this state our bodies and minds are more equipped to heal; whether it is a physical, mental or emotional challenge. Reiki can help even the most healthy person stay in balance. Reiki is a complimentary therapy to medicine or other healing modalities and can facilitate the bodies innate ability to heal allowing prescribed treatments to potentially work better.
Reiki can be spiritually satisfying though it is not a religion and in no way conflicts or contradicts anyone’s beliefs. It is energy drawn from the universe similar to the warmth we receive from the sun.

How to Receive Reiki
Light Touch: The client will receive their Reiki treatment fully clothed lying on a massage table or sitting in a comfortable chair. A session can last 30 minutes to an hour. The Reiki practitioner places their hands at locations throughout the body generally starting with the head down to the feet. The hands will either lightly touch the body or hover just above. The body is not manipulated in any way. During the session the Reiki energy – known as life force or universal energy – will flow from the practitioners hands into the client’s body and energy field. During a session the client may feel warmth, a deep relaxed sensation, and a general sense of well being. How the Reiki moves is actually up to the receiver as the Reiki practitioner is purely a conduit of the energy between the source and the receiver. For in person sessions the client or recipient should expect to arrive 15 minutes ahead to discuss the session and any expectations.
Distance Treatment: Distance Reiki is like the in person session except done from the comfort of the client’s own home, or if traveling from the hotel. We will start the session with a phone call and then once again at the end to recap. The client finds a comfortable, quiet place to sit or lie down. If desired play soft background music. As Reiki is an energy therapy it is equally effective remotely.
Animal Reiki: Animals are very sensitive to Reiki. This can be a helpful compliment to them during stressful times. This can be done on location or remotely. Animal Reiki sessions are entirely up to the animal and can’t be forced. They decide if they want it hands on, or from the opposite corner of the room. Some sessions can be extremely short as well. It must be entirely up to the animal.
Reiki is complimentary to medical and other professional health care and is not a substitute.
