Reiki roughly translates to universal energy life force, which flows from the practitioner to the recipient. It is a spiritual healing practice that promotes balance in all aspects of the body and mind. It can help alleviate pain, stress and anxiety while aiding in sleep and digestion. It helps to strengthen your own natural capacity to bring balance within yourself.
What a session looks like:
We begin the session by talking about what is going on in your life. This can include ailments, physical pain, stress, emotional distress, etc.
During the treatment, you are fully clothed, relaxing in supported restorative postures or seated. Reiki is offered using a light touch, though it can also be done with the hands hovering over the body. I incorporate aromatherapy, music and restorative yoga techniques for deeper states of relaxation. Once the treatment is complete, we can discuss your experience or you can simply remain still and relaxed.
