Reiki – Rei = Universal / Ki = life force energy ~UNIVERSAL LIFE FORCE ENERGY~
Energy can stagnate in the body where there has been a physical injury or emotional pain. These energy blocks can cause illness. Dis-ease
Reiki is a subtle and effective form of erergy work using spiritually guided life force energy. It is an old traditional method and profoundly simple system of “laying on of hands”. Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese seeker of spiritual truths, brought Reiki to human awareness in 1922. Reiki had been kept “highly secret” for many years. I am happy to say that now in the 21st century you can find many practitioners of this amazing healing art. It is not affiliated with a particular religion or religious practice.
REIKI session – Client lays fully clothed on a massage table. I begin by checking the flow/movement of the 7 major Chakras. This action in itself begins balancing the energies. I then move through each of the Chakras by “Laying on of hands”. My hands are lightly on or hovering above the body between 3-10 minutes with intention to create deep relaxation, to speed healing, reduce pain or any other symptoms you may be experiencing.
REIKI/MASSAGE session – Clients lay fully clothed on a massage table. I begin by checking the flow/movement of the 7 major Chakras. This action in itself begins balancing the energies. I then work through the Chakras by “Laying hands” above or lightly touching. I include massage of the scalp, forehead, neck, shoulders, sternum, belly, knees and feet or any other area(s) that may feel “stuck”. The combination is deeply satisfying as physical & mental tension melts away.
What can you expect during a session? You may feel tingling, warmth or coldness in certain areas of your body as I work with you. May even feel emotional, spacy, calm or simply relaxed while in other cases, people do not feel anything, and that is ok, as the Universal Life Force Energy is still working.
Chakra means “wheel” and refers to energy points in your body. There are thought to be spinning disks of energy that should stay “open” and aligned, as they correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being.
7 MAJOR CHAKRAS
CROWN — the highest chakra, sits at the crown of the head and represents our ability to be fully connected spiritually.
THIRD EYE/BROW —Closer to communion with the divine. The third-eye chakra, controls our ability to see the big picture and connect to intuition. Think of it as the eye of the soul: It registers information beyond the surface level.
THROAT — Communication, self-expression, and truth. Gives voice to the heart chakra and controls our ability to communicate our personal power. Speaking our truth & feeling heard.
HEART — the bridge between the lower chakras (associated with materiality) and the upper chakras (associated with spirituality). As the name suggests, this chakra can influence our ability to give and receive love—from others and ourselves.
SOLAR PLEXUS — Upper abdomen in the stomach area. Self-worth, self-confidence, and self-esteem. Your ability to be confident and in control of your life. Think back to the last time you had butterflies or felt a pit in the stomach
SACRAL — Lower abdomen, about 2 inches below the navel. It helps inform how we relate to our emotions and the emotions of others. It also governs creativity and sexual energy. Those with a blocked sacral chakra could feel a lack of control in their lives.
ROOT — Base of the spine and gives us the feeling of being grounded. When the root chakra is open, we feel confident in our ability to withstand challenges and stand on our own two feet. When it’s blocked, we feel threatened, as if we’re standing on unstable ground.
Sessions run between 30-90 minutes.
