Frequently Asked Questions

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "beaming" or "gently hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If our “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki will flow through me and any practitioner into the client. The practitioner acts like a channel or a straw for the Reiki to flow through to the person receiving the treatment. The person receiving the treatment is the one actually allowing the Reiki in to help them balance, clear, cleanse, and heal.  Reiki works mind, body, and spirit and can help the person receiving the Reiki on all levels to achieve inner balance. It is like getting a wonderful massage without the manipulation.

Why get Reiki?

Reiki helps balance the body, relieves stress, balances the charkas and allows the body to relax and release negative energies. It helps your energy flow correctly, working on the mind, body and spirit levels. Reiki is one of the best ways to achieve a healthier state of being. It can work with your regular medical practitioners and any other modality there is. It can be a complement to anything: medical care, holistic care, massage or any other energy work. Reiki is a “life force” energy,  it works to help the body achieve its own perfect state. The best way to understand Reiki is to come in and try it. The experience of the energy is the best way to experience how it can help.

Who can get Reiki?

Anyone and anything can get Reiki. We are all living and the “Universal Life Force Energy” flows through all of us and all of the things that are created on this earth. Reiki even works on animals, which will also be something I will learn.  I have worked on relieving sun burns, sore throats, shoulder and knee pains, eczema, psoriasis and general anxiety.  Please feel free to read their own testimonials I have asked them to post for honest feedback.  There is no age limit.  I even have crystal pouches, aromatherapy oils and crystal platforms that can help further achieve health, well being, and balance. Reiki, crystals and aromatherapy can truly be added to anything and everything and it will help.

What can I expect during my first Reiki session?

  • At your first session, you should plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early so I can go over the session, discuss your goals for the session, complete paperwork, etc.

  • Reiki is usually performed on a client who is fully reclined comfortably on a massage table.  I have an interior office to minimize outside noises. 

  • Unlike a massage therapy session, you will be fully clothed.  You will want to wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing.  

  • At your option. Reiki may be done with a light gentle static touch or the Practitioner’s hands may be a few inches/centimeters above your body at the hand positions with no actual touch. There are standard hand placements beginning at your head or feet, avoiding all sensitive body parts. I will confirm with you prior to your session which you prefer, light touch or no touch.  

  • Usually, a session is done without talking and the practitioner may have soft ambient music playing in the background to aid in your relaxation. If you want to communicate something to me during the session, such as if you are cold or too warm, or if you would like me to adjust the music, if you are feeling a sensation you would like to discuss, if something feels uncomfortable for you, if you have a question or issue, then do speak up at any time during the session. I want to make your session the best experience possible. 

  • Most clients feel a sense of relaxation and peace. The mind may feel calm and your physical body should feel relaxed. Reiki is so relaxing that sometimes clients may fall asleep during the session. Don’t worry though, you will still receive all of the benefits of the session, sleeping or awake.  After the session if there is anything you would like to share and you may do so at your option. This is good feedback for my notes for planning your next session.

How often should I get a Reiki treatment?

I believe the body tells us when we need energy work done. There are some clients who come once a week, some come once a month. Some come once every other month. Some come even more often if they are having problems such as broken bones, a recent surgery or a need for balance because of an emotional thing they are dealing with. I think it is a personal choice.

Most people come to get Reiki to relax and achieve more balance in their life. That can be balance for different reasons. The best thing about Reiki is it only has a positive flow and it can help people on all of these levels! It works with any and all other modalities and compliments everything you do with your regular doctor and or counselor.
