Background: I have been providing reiki-like energy healing treatments to people for the past two years, informally. In the autumn of 2018, I went through the formal training needed to become a certified reiki practitioner, and later went on to reiki mastery training.
What you will experience: After receiving reiki, some people note feeling relief from illnesses, aches and pains, or from general feelings of low energy and fatigue. “Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by lightly touching on or near the body and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.” - The International Center for Reiki Training.
In a reiki session, I would spend about 10-15 minutes with a (first time) client, to hear about the issue the person is coming to reiki to treat. After that, the client lays on a massage table, fully clothed, while the practitioner moves around the table, sending Life Force, healing energy into areas of the body that need it, or to treat general malaise or fatigue. Often, we will start with a guided meditation. I have had experiences with people I’ve treated feeling relief of physical symptoms, such as stomach pains, feeling deeply relaxed and rejuvenated, or feeling discernibly more alert and energetic after the session. I offer reiki in single sessions, as well as 3 or 5 session package.
Feeling stressed or fatigued? Perhaps there is something making you feel out of balance you out of balance. There are 7 main energy centers in the body, known as chakras. Each chakra is located throughout our body so that it can be correlated to specific feelings of physical dysfunctions - such as sluggishness and loss of vitality. Each chakra center also houses our mental and emotional strengths. The clearing of the energy in these centers can also balance our emotional state of mind. Similarly to reiki, chakra balancing may include a light touch with hands and or stones. The similarity between reiki and chakra balancing, is that I call upon Life Force energy to move through the systems of the body where they are most needed to regenerate. The Chakra Balancing treatment is somewhat like a general “tune-up”. I have had some clients report the feeling of clearing of blocked or slow energy in these centers of energy, as well as reporting significantly increased energy
I offer a variety of guided meditations, designed to help you bring peace and balance into your life, as well as to set intentions, focus on creating more abundance or love in your life, as well as to help to forgive yourself and others for ways we have felt hurt in the past. Guided meditations may be done alone, in groups, and/or in single, or multiple session packages.
Please note that I am always open to using the skills and training I have to build a package that feels right for you. Perhaps you’d like to combine life coaching and mindfulness strategies? We can talk about how we’d approach that.
