FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS REIKI?

Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique used to reduce stress, heal emotional and physical trauma, and to promote overall health and well-being. Reiki dissolves energetic blockages that can build in the body from stress, trauma, and physical injury. Though everyone's experience is personal, generally Reiki provides the client with emotional balance, more energy, peace of mind, and clarity.

 

HOW DOES REIKI WORK?

A Reiki session brings the body into a state of deep relaxation so the body can best heal itself. The Reiki practitioner channels Reiki, which is a Japanese phrase meant to describe the Universal life force energy to promote stress reduction, relaxation, and healing. There are a few theories on how Reiki works, but this is the most consistent: Reiki appears to engage/activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which is our default setting when we’re not in danger. In this state, our breath calms, our bodies recover and relax, we build strength, make hormones, and send blood to our organs instead of away from skeletal muscles. Generally, the more time we spend with our PNS activated, the healthier we are. External stressors can activate our sympathetic nervous system, triggering our fight/flight response that can stay active when we’re not in real danger. Similar to exercise, massage, meditation, and yoga, Reiki works to restore balance between the PNS and the SNS.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IN A SESSION?

Reiki is performed by using a light touch or by holding hands above/near the body. Sessions with me are 90 minutes long and include 20-30 minutes of intuitive insights and guidance and 60 minutes of energy work. Your experience is unique, though many experience deep relaxation, comparable to one of the greatest night’s sleep you’ve had. Potential effects of a session include emotional balance, stress relief, pain relief, increased energy, and higher overall well-being. This lasts long after the session is over, and is increased with consistent sessions.. Like any form of therapy or self-improvement work, Reiki is most effective with repeated sessions. I recommend a four session commitment to determine if Reiki is right for you. Sessions are catered to the unique needs of the client.

WHO IS REIKI RIGHT FOR?

Reiki is right for anyone who seeks stress relief, relaxation, and healing on emotional, physical, mental, and/or spiritual levels. Reiki is also beneficial for anyone looking to release old energy patterns. Each session is personal and is designed for the client's needs at the time of the session. Reiki can be performed remotely, meaning that a session can be completed even if you are unable to physically meet me for a session. Please note that Reiki is a form of alternative therapy and is not a substitute for conventional medicine. 

Animals benefit from Reiki as well! Reiki is a great way to support our beloved companions, and can be especially beneficial for animals struggling with destructive behavior, attachment issues, old age, stress, and pets who are transitioning.
