**Due to COVID-19, I’m offering distance Reiki sessions through Zoom, which are just as effective.
Reiki is a safe, energy healing modality that addresses physical symptoms caused by blockages in our natural energy fields. Reiki means “universal life force energy,” and during the session, the practitioner will physically work with this energy flowing between you to relieve your blockages caused by negative beliefs and past trauma stored in the subconscious mind. As a complement to hypnotherapy or on its own, Reiki’s great benefit is stress reduction and relaxation, which facilitates the body’s natural healing abilities.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where does reiki come from?
Reiki is believed to have been associated with Mikao Usui who is credited with rediscovering the root system now called Reiki. His tradition and methods were passed through several grandmasters of Reiki. Today, Reiki takes many forms, however, The Usui System of Natural Healing is still the form most widely practiced.
Practitioners and Master Teachers are trained through an initiation process where Masters pass on their knowledge and expertise to their students.
What is a session like?
A session is usually 30-60 minutes long. A discussion will usually take place during an initial session with a Reiki Practitioner. They will describe the session to the client, give the client an opportunity to discuss any particular problems or issues they are experiencing and ask them what they are hoping to achieve from their session.
For the actual session, the client will rest comfortably on a massage table on their back with their shoes removed. Reiki can be performed with the client sitting comfortably in a chair as well. Unlike massage therapy, no articles of clothing are removed and a client is always fully clothed; loose, comfortable clothing is suggested. A session can either be hands-on, where a Practitioner will apply a light touch during the session, or hands-off where they will hold their hands slightly above your body. If a client prefers not to be touched they can indicate this to the practitioner before they begin.
The session will then proceed with the Reiki Practitioner moving through specific standard Reiki hand positions beginning at the person’s 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.
Reiki is meant to be used as a complement to traditional care or as a personal relaxation or stress reducing tool. It is not a substitute for qualified medical or traditional care.
