Reiki (ray-key) means universal light or universal energy, and is an energy healing technique which works in conjunction with the body's natural electrical system, focusing on, but not being limited to, the body's seven main energy centers (chakras). Each Reiki practitioner has been attuned to healing symbols and acts as a 'conduit' between an individual and the universal energy.
Reiki benefits all levels: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. It is often said that Reiki has it's own intelligence and knows where it needs to flow. EVERYONE (adults, children) EVERYTHING (animals, plants) and EVERY situation can benefit from this practice.
BENEFITS OF REIKI: Reiki may strengthen the immune system, promote relaxation, reduce stress, promote creativity and strengthen intuition, release blockages of suppressed emotion, balance the energy centers of the body.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A REIKI SESSION: You will either lie on a massage table or sit in a comfortable chair fully clothed throughout the session. Pillows, blankets, and eye cover are offered to add to your comfort. An essential oil may be used as well. Music may be played, if desired, to assist in relaxation and release.
The Reiki practitioner will place his/her hands at various locations lightly on or just above the body. A full Reiki session may last up to 60 minutes, depending on the energy needed.
