WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki (RAY-key) is an energetic healing technique developed in Japan in the 1800's by Dr. Mikao Usui.
As a practitioner you receive attunements and learn to channel energy so you may assist clients in healing their own body, mind and spirit.

HOW ARE REIKI & HEALING TOUCH DIFFERENT?
Reiki and Healing Touch are more similar than they are different. They are both heart-centered healing techniques that use intention to promote wellness and balance individuals on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. Both are forms of energy healing that use light touch with a client during the treatment. Healing Touch is different from Reiki in that it addresses balancing and harmonizing a person's aura and chakras. I find Reiki and Healing Touch to accompany each other beautifully.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM REIKI & HEALING TOUCH?
Reiki translates as 'universal life force energy.' Rei describes the universal and limitless aspect of the energy. Ki represents the 'life force' present in all living things. During a treatment, energy naturally flows to where it is needed most to heal. Anyone and every body is able to benefit from the healing aspects of Reiki and Healing Touch.
HOW CAN A SESSION HELP ME?
One of the most beneficial results of a session is deep relaxation. When our bodies relax deeply, they naturally heal.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING A SESSION?
During your session, you will lay clothed on a massage table in a dimly lit room with calming music. The practitioner will use light touch on different areas of your body. You may always request for the practitioner to hover their hands above your body rather than touching your body. Please wear loose and comfortable clothing for your session. Many people describe energy work as a warm or tingly sensation. A session lasts for 75 minutes (up to 60 min hands-on-healing + 15 min of intuitive conversation).
WHY DO YOU INCLUDE INTUITIVE CONVERSATION?
I find the intuitive conversation at the end of each session to be invaluable. It is a time to share and connect about what happened during the session. I feel it helps foster a deeper understanding for the client and assists them in moving more easily towards their health and wellness goals.
WHAT IS AN INTENTION?
An intention is a starting point or where you will place your focus during the session. Each time we meet, I will ask you what your intention is for the time we have together. A client always has the choice to keep their intention in their heart or they may choose to speak their intention aloud.
HOW DOES AN INTENTION HELP DURING THE SESSION?
When we get more clear about what we would like to work towards in life or in a session-it is then easier to accomplish.
IS REIKI A RELIGION?
No. This is a commonly asked question. Reiki and Healing Touch are available to all people regardless of their religious or spiritual beliefs.
