Reiki (pronounced ray key) is a spiritual life force or vital spiritual energy that resides in all things. English speaking persons usually refer to reiki as “universal life energy.”
During a Reiki session, a therapist channels this energy through him/herself into the patient by the gentle laying on of hands, to activate the natural healing process of the client’s body in order to restore physical and emotional well-being.
What to expect from a Reiki Treatment: A typical Reiki treatment is an hour long. The recipient wears comfortable clothing. Treatments take place on a massage table, soft music plays in the back ground. Depending upon the recipient’s preference, treatment will either be “hands on” or “hands above”. In a hands above treatment, I hold my hands above the client’s body and work in the etheric body. In a hands on treatment, I gently place my hands on the client’s body. Clients report feeling a warm, gentle flow of energy through their bodies during a Reiki treatment. Reiki energy goes where it is most needed to heal the root cause of disease. I am intuitively guided as to where I place my hands and what symbols (if any) to use. I also, use a drop or two of essential oil to enhance the client’s experience of releasing and healing. Reiki healing will continue to work for up to three days after the treatment is complete.
