What is Reiki and how is it done?
Reiki=Universal Lifeforce Energy=LOVE
“Rei” means soul, spirit, divine, essence, and/or sacred. “Ki” means life force, cosmic and/or universal energy. Combined they are “Reiki”, universal life-force energy.
Reiki is an energetic healing modality designed to balance, and harmonize your body, emotions, mind and spirit (bodymind). It encourages deep relaxation, releasing stress and tension to promote greater awareness and spiritual growth.
As a conduit, or an instrument, the attuned Reiki Practitioner channels universal healing energy to the client’s energy centres (chakras, aura and meridians) by either lightly touching, or hovering over energetic and physical points on the client’s body. The client has choice if they prefer hovering or light touch. Reiki can also be received through remote sessions.
Stress, fear, worry and beliefs break down communication within your bodymind. We cannot heal and restore when we are in fear and shock. Many of us experience stress daily and have ways to cope, but not to resolve. This continues the cycle of discomfort and dis-ease in your body mind.
Reiki actively works to gently and lovingly nurture the body and spirit communication so that you can thrive! When your body communicates effectively, it can then heal itself; this is because the body and mind are one.
The chakras (the seven main energy centres of your body) are meant to take in subtle energy from the external environment and turn it into physical energy your body can use to balance itself. If the chakras are blocked or spinning in reverse this natural system is disturbed and you may be feeling out-of-sync with yourself or your life.
Reiki is a gentle and loving way for you to choose Self so that you can make room for other experiences, other than the original default programming of fear and strategy.
Is Reiki Safe?
Reiki is simple and gentle, effective and non-invasive. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with other forms of healing (conventional or alternative).
The Practitioner is channelling Reiki from source, not from themselves. They are facilitating the flow of energy by holding sacred space for you to receive what is coming to you from the source of all energy.
Through simply receiving, there is a simultaneous welcoming of and handing over to a deeper source and that is truly an act of intuitive trust and self-love. Through the art of reiki, there is so much permission for the individual to come just as they are. This deepens the possibilities of transformation within their own spiritual, mental, emotional and physical healing journey, for their highest and greatest good.
What are the Benefits of Reiki?
The benefits of Reiki occur on all levels of the bodymind: Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, Energetic and Physical.
Physically: Reiki can calm pain in the body and enhance the individual healing process. You may find yourself sleeping better and notice an overall improvement in your hormones and how it feels to move your physical body.
Energetically: Reiki brings the chakras into alignment and balance, which allows your energy centres to receive energy and release it effectively. If you need calming, Reiki can soothe. If you need vitality, Reiki can provide.
Emotionally: Reiki can help to stabilize emotional responses, calming the fight or fight system in your body so your emotions can come become balanced and restored.
Mentally: Reiki creates healthy space between the thoughts and consciousness allowing you to notice you are not your mind, or the thoughts you think. This provides clarity and ease in decision making. Reiki helps to quiet the mind so that your ‘heart voice’, or intuitive voice, can be heard by you.
Spiritually: Reiki increases your connection with your highest self and the creator/source/universe. This connection is what allows all other healing and shifting in your bodymind to take place.
What are Sessions Like?
Sessions are conducted in a private room. The client rests on a massage table, fully clothed. The Practitioner can perform Reiki either by gently placing hands on the client’s body, or by hovering hands over the client’s body, depending on the comfort level of the client.
The session includes Reiki and an Intuitive Reflection. If you would prefer to only receive Reiki (without reflection) that can absolutely be accommodated.
An initial session is 75-minutes. A typical follow-up session is 60 minutes in length. This includes a check-in with you, the client, as well as a full session and recommendations for follow-up.
If a client would like a combination of Reiki and BodyTalk the session is booked for 75-90 minutes.
Remote sessions, also known as distance sessions, can be conducted in real time, either by telephone or online via the Zoom platform, depending on the client’s preference.
Remote sessions are incredibly powerful as they call for an enhanced energetic presence of the Practitioner and come with benefits such as the convenience to receive in the comfort of the space you are in, removes the need for travel and also allows for those who are beyond the immediate geographical area of the Practitioner to receive.
Remote sessions work the exact same way in-person sessions do. Reiki is an energy based practice. Much like a wifi signal allows us to connect to the internet or how a cell phone frequency can communicate across time and space, the Practitioner is able to tune into the client’s energetic bodymind and apply the reiki treatment through teh application of trained protocol and procedures.
