, “Universal Life Energy”, is a Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction that also promotes healing. It is a form of energy work that helps bring balance to body, mind and spirit. Reiki is non-invasive and completely safe for everyone as it only works for the greatest good of the recipient.
What to Expect:
Before the session begins, I will perform a smudging of the client with sage or palo santo and I ask that the client do the same for me. This helps purify and cleanse the space and individuals of any negative energy (gotta get rid of the bad to make room for the good!). Then it’s time to get comfy! Remaining fully clothed, the client can either lay down on the massage table, or sit in a chair, whichever is more comfortable. I will then guide you through a breathing and visualization exercise to help you relax and settle into the space. All I need you to do is relax and be as receptive to this loving energy as possible. Reiki is given by a laying of hands, however, the session can be performed with little or no contact if preferred and will still be just as effective. I work intuitively with the energy of Reiki and I also incorporate the energy of crystals and stones into each session. This energy combination strengthens the effects of clearing, balancing and recharging.
During a session, you may go into a meditative state, you may fall asleep (Reiki naps are the best!), you may just feel completely relaxed. You also may find that your mind is all over the place. It’s ok! Don’t get upset about it. Take a deep breath, thank your wonderful mind for all of the thoughts, and then bring your awareness back to the room, the table, the moment, yourself. Emotions may get stirred up as well. Don’t try to stifle them. They are being brought to the surface for healing. It’s what we’re here for right?! Know that you are completely safe and supported through this process.
It is common to feel different sensations throughout a session: gentle warmth or even heat (like that of a heating pad on high), coolness, and tingling (almost feels electric). It is all completely normal.
When the session is complete, I will gently bring your awareness back to the room. We will then have time to discuss anything that may have come up during the session.
For the best experience possible, I ask that you try to avoid (or reduce consumption) of alcohol and packaged/processed foods for at least 24 hours before and after your session, as these things tend to lower your vibration. Also drink plenty of water leading into your session and after. Water not only hydrates, but it amplifies the energy running through your body! So good!
The effects of Reiki can be felt for days, sometimes even weeks, after a session. Be conscious and aware of what your body and soul are trying to bring to your attention! This is how we heal!
About 2 years ago, a lot of things were happening in my life that I had absolutely no control over and could not figure out on my own. I needed help so I asked for it and BOOM the Universe answered! This moment was the first of many that have led me to my path of spirituality and learning all the Universe has to offer! It is what led me to Reiki. I needed balance. I needed to find my ground, my center. Something told me, intuitively, that I needed energy work, but I had no idea what that was or how to even go about finding someone for that. Again, the Universe answered! It brought the exact people into my life that I needed at that time. One of whom told me that it was my calling to be an energy worker/healer myself. I believed it because I felt it. I immediately took the necessary steps on this path and today, I am trained in Usui/Holy Fire I&II Reiki. Everyday I look forward to learning more and growing in my practice. I would be honored and beyond grateful to continue this growth with you! Love and light to you all!
