FAQs

 

What is Reiki? 

Reiki is a gentle and safe form of energy healing that is geared towards removing energy blocks in our system caused by emotional, mental or physical stress and pain.  Reiki Healing is an ancient Japanese healing art that was re-discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, has no religious affiliation and is a fantastic healing tool to restore balance, to heal and to harmonize all aspects of the person, mind, body,and spirit. It can also be used to encourage personal and spiritual awareness and growth. 


How is a Reiki treatment given?

In a standard treatment Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands into the you. Usually you will be laying on a massage table but treatments can also be given while seated or even standing. You should remain fully clothed, preferably in comfortable clothing. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near your body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on your needs. Each position is held for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki is needed at each position. The whole treatment usually lasts between 30 and 90 minutes.


How does energy healing benefit me?

Energy work can help us to heal on all levels, spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical. Assistance to move energy blockages along with the awareness around root causes can help us make more conscious healthy choices in everyday life. Gaining more skill in your own intuition also gives you access to more self-awareness. Awareness is like a light in the darkness. It helps us to see what we couldn’t see before. Energy goes where it is needed when it is returned to the body. Your are given space to assimilate this energy before you go. The assimilation process may continue for 3-5 days after a healing session during which time you are still integrating.


Do I have to believe in it for it to work?

Not necessarily. Energy healing can happen regardless of what you believe. We all have the capacity to be able to offer energy healing to one another.  Like any other skill it is something that gets better with practice and experience.  Our loving intent is so powerful that we can help another or ourselves heal simply by focusing on this energy. Love is the most powerful force in the world. It is the glue that holds everything in the universe together. Our thoughts are also very powerful though, so an open mind is best.


What do I do during a long distance session?

During a distance healing session you may or may not call or video chat with us at the beginning and the end of the healing. We may just set a time for you to relax and rest and feel your body without connection by phone or video.  It’s a personal choice of what will work best for you.

  

How long does it take and how many sessions?

Energy healing can take place in one or more sessions. We will do a brief medical intuitive check-in to see how many sessions are needed. It is generally from one to three sessions depending on the your desired outcome.


Is it safe for pregnant woman?

Since Reiki is guided by the Higher Power, the Reiki energy will know the condition of the mother and adjust appropriately. Reiki can only do good. Many pregnant women have received treatments with great benefit to them and their unborn child. It has also been used during child birth. Pregnant women have also taken the Reiki training and received the Reiki attunement with beneficial results.
