Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on 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 one's "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.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve stress and pain.
How long is a Reiki session?
A session is generally one hour. 90 minute sessions may be available in some cases.
Will I be lying down on a massage table or sitting?
Reiki is usually performed on a client who is fully reclined comfortably on a massage table. If you have mobility or pain issues we can discuss prior so that I may make you your most comfortable for the session.
Am I clothed during my Reiki session?
Yes. Unlike a massage therapy session, you will be fully clothed.
Will the Reiki Practitioner’s hands touch me in any way?
At your option. Reiki may be done with a light gentle pressure static touch or the my hands may be a few inches 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. We will discuss your preferences prior to starting the session.
Is one session enough or will I need a series of sessions?
One session is a great start! You will see for yourself how Reiki makes you feel, if it is relaxing, if you feel more clarity after the session. Many people, after trying one session, go on to purchase a series of sessions to progressively work on their current wellness goals.
Is Reiki for an acute condition or a chronic condition?
If you have an acute condition you should seek out a licensed medical professional immediately. If you have a chronic or current issue, Reiki can be an excellent complement in your health or wellness plan.
What will I feel during the session?
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.
Is there talking during the session?
Usually a session is done without talking and we will have soft ambient music playing in the background to aid in your relaxation. If you want to communicate something during the session, such as if you are cold or too warm, f 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 always want the best for you and want to make your session the best experience possible. I may ask you after the session if there is anything you would like to share and you may do so at your option.
After I leave my session, should I do anything special?
Please drink plenty of water to hydrate your body as your body’s energy system may be moving at a more optimum rate, so please care for yourself with water and healthy food during the day. It is beneficial to spend some quiet time that day or evening after your session to journal or to contemplate as you may have some insights and further mental clarity as your body continues to process the Reiki session.
What is Distance Healing
Distance healing is any form of healing energy "sent" across time and space that is received and has a healing effect on the recipient. With this type of work, you do not have to be physically present with the healer to receive the healing. It may be done over the phone, video call or even while you sleep. The special time is set aside and agreed upon us.
This type of healing is equally effective as an in person healing because in alternative energy healing and holistic medicine therapies, we are working with the physical, emotional and mental aspects of an individual by accessing the individual’s energy body. The energy body can be accessed easily from anywhere and at any time and does not require you to be physically present with the practitioner.

We all have physical bodies that often become affected by injury and illness. Those bodies, as well as mind and spirit are comprised of energy. The very energy that created the cosmos is in us. Collective and shared. Energy healing is a holistic practice that activates the body’s subtle stored energy systems to remove blocks. By breaking through these energetic blocks, the body’s inherent ability to heal itself is stimulated.
Energy healing is about looking at the underlying cause before things change into symptoms. This is where we differ from Western Medicine. We are not treating the falling leaves, we are treating the roots.
For example, you have a scrape on your arm – that’s the result, not the cause. The cause was that you bumped into something and cut yourself.
Similarly, if you look a little bit deeper into most problems or illnesses, there is normally a cause that’s not seen. It doesn’t just show up randomly.
The key is to look at it from an energy perspective – the underlying cause.
Your energy might be saying a story inside of you that is being created and not seated in truth.
Put simply, energy healing is about taking the momentum that you have, the direction you’re already heading in, and changing it slightly so that your future changes dramatically.
Imagine you’re coming into this current moment from a certain direction. If you don’t change anything, it’s easy to see the future – it’s just a straight line. You know how things will turn out.
Your future is a continuation of that same line. The things that have been happening will keep happening.
With energy healing, the aim is to turn. Maybe a 2-degree or 90-degree turn. So that now your momentum will start taking you toward a different direction.
This is where you start seeing big changes. Because even if you change course by just 2 degrees, at first you’re close to the old path you were on, but after a month to several months, your old path will seem further and further away from you as you continue going along your new direction.
The more you go down your new path, the farther you are from your old path.
That’s why it’s so powerful.
Instead of looking at your current position and bringing about immediate change, it’s about looking at the underlying momentum. After the healing, it may seem like not much has changed. The world will still look the same. But if you wait, you’ll end up in a completely different place.
