What is Reiki?
Reiki activates the natural healing processes of the body, restoring physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Our physical body is alive because of the “Life Force Energy” that is flowing through it. If your energy is low or blocked, it impacts your well-being and personal health. When your energy is low you are more likely to get sick or feel stress.
The knowledge of an invisible energy that flows through all living things has been part of the wisdom of many cultures for thousands of years. The Japanese call it Reiki, Traditional Chinese Medicine calls it Chi, and the Hindu tradition calls it Prana.
How does it work?
Working with the seven energy centres in the body, called chakras, Reiki balances and increases your energy, bringing the entire body back into balance. When your energy is high you are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki creates many beneficial effects including feelings of peace, security and well-being.
The existence of Life Force Energy has been documented by scientific experiments. Modern medical doctors are now investigating the role this energy plays in the functioning of the immune system and the healing process.
How is it done?
While you are fully clothed and laying comfortably on a massage table, your Reiki practitioner uses her/his hands to support, direct, balance and align the seven energy centres in your body. Most of these energy centres lay along the spine, and the energy emanates outwards, both in front of and behind the body. There is a variety of ways to perform Reiki and some practitioners lay their hands directly on your body to facilitate the energy flow. While I occasionally do this, it is more typical that my hands work in your energy field, several inches above your body.
What is a remote session like?
Connecting via Zoom we will have an initial discussion about your needs and expectations from the session. You will then lay or sit comfortably at home while I perform the Reiki from a distance. Depending on your preference, we can remain active on Zoom during the session or we can disconnect, reconnecting at the end of the session to discuss our observations and insights.
