Reiki is a gentle bodywork technique that promotes healing through stress reduction and deep relaxation. This therapeutic treatment restores the body’s energetic balance, opens up blocked areas, and stimulates natural self-healing properties.
Our bodies are more than just collections of functioning parts. There are channels that govern the functions of all body systems, such as the nervous, digestive, endocrine, vascular, lymphatic, and reproductive systems. The way energy flows through these channels and the seven chakras contributes to our wellness or disease.
Qi is the non-physical energy that animates all living things. Qi provides balance, wellness and happiness when it flows freely and unobstructed. When this energy is low, blocked, or unbalanced, the body is more likely to experience tension, stress and eventually illness. During reiki, the practitioner assists the body’s natural abilities to relax, release tension, and boost the immune system.
What To Expect
Your session time includes a consultation. You will talk briefly about how you are feeling and what brought you in for the session. Wear comfortable clothing, if possible. During your session, you will remain fully clothed, removing only your shoes. The practitioner will use various hands-on techniques with gentle touch to slight pressure, depending on your needs.
Some people fall asleep, while others experience a profoundly deep relaxation, or even feel recharged. Each individual session may have different results for one person.
