What is Reiki?
Reiki is a natural healing art that uses the life force energy (or, chi) that is all around us to heal the mind, heart, body, and soul.
Treatments are done fully clothed either lying down on a massage table, or sitting upright in a chair. Any touch is very gentle, and the practitioner's hands will often be a few inches away from the client's body.
Reiki is not a religion, and can be used by anyone. It follows five simple ideals (The Five Principles of Reiki) to promote peace and harmony in daily life.
How Can Reiki Help Me?
Receiving a Reiki treatment will most noticeably leave you feeling more relaxed. Reiki energy works on the physical, mental, emotional and soul aspects of a body, and will naturally flow to where it is needed most. Reiki can help you by reducing pain, clearing negative energy and releasing blocks in your body's energy flow. It can also help with letting go of unwanted habits and thought patterns.
What Do I Need to Bring?
The only thing you need to bring is an open mind. Although you don't have to "believe in Reiki" to get the benefits, it works best if you are open to receiving the energy. You can also come with a specific intention for the treatment. For instance, if you suffer from migraines you might set the intention for your treatments to reduce the frequency or severity of the migraines.
How Much Does it Cost?
All treatments are one hour. It is often beneficial to come for a series of treatments in a short period of time. The first session will include a short form to fill out and brief introduction to the practice of Reiki.
