Reiki

 Balance       Energize         Realign

 Relax             Heal    

In Japanese, Reiki has been translated to mean the “universal life force.” Reiki practitioners are attuned to tap into and channel this energy in order to activate the body’s natural healing abilities. Reiki is an ancient healing practice working with prana, also known as life force, or qi (chi).

What are the benefits of Reiki?

Reiki is commonly used to help relieve physical pain, recover from injury, rebalance energy, and calm the mind, sometimes in as little as one session. In addition Reiki can:

  • Create deep relaxation and aid with stress and tension release
  • Accelerate the body’s self-healing abilities
  • Enable better sleep
  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Minimize chronic health problems, such as asthma, eczema, and headaches
  • Assist with stopping bad habits and addictions
  • Help adjust flow of the endocrine system, bringing the body into balance and harmony
  • Help the body rid itself of toxins
  • Reduce side effects of medication, and help the body recovery after surgery or chemotherapy
  • Help boost and support the immune system
  • Increase vitality and postpone the aging process
  • Raise the vibrational frequency of the body
  • Help with emotional clearing

What Reiki is not:

  • Reiki is not affiliated with any religion or religious practice
  • It is not massage nor is it a system of religious beliefs or suggestion
  • Reiki is not magic

How does Reiki work?

Life force is constantly moving in and around the body, nourishing cells, tissues and organs, and traveling the channels of meridians, chakras, nadis, and aura. This energy is responsive to thoughts, feelings, movement and nutrition. When negative input attaches to a body’s energy system, it can cause areas to become stagnant, stop energy from flowing freely, and cause disease to begin. A Reiki practitioner can read the body’s energy map, noticing areas that aren’t flowing freely. The practitioner then channels their own qi, or energy, into the recipient by hovering their hands over these energy lines. Qi moves into the body where it is needed, healing areas where blockages have occurred and recharging energy where it is low. Reiki clears, straightens, and heals the energy pathways, allowing the life force to flow in a free, natural, and healthy way.

What to expect at your Reiki session

Reiki takes place in the calm, clean and relaxing atmosphere of our studio or, if you choose, the comfort of your own home. It is important to have an area free from distraction, disturbing noise and clutter. On the day of your session, please refrain from drugs, alcohol or even a lot of caffeine, so your body is open to receive healing energy.  The session will start with deep breathing exercises, followed by a hovering or light touch along your clothed body, from head to foot, concentrating in areas needing extra healing. Once the Reiki session is complete we will spend a few moments discussing the treatment, further helping the healing process. Please wear comfortable clothes.

Immediately you should be more relaxed, and over the next few days you may experience an increased sense of stress relief, deep rest when sleeping, pain relief, and rejuvenation. Occasionally the recipient may experience a headache or general body ache, which is a sign the body is releasing toxins after the session. Remember to continue drinking a lot of water, and know that these symptoms are short-lived, usually causing no disturbance to regular activities.  Overall you will feel more physical freedom and energy. Multiple sessions may be needed, depending on the severity of the cause and symptoms.

  2. Shanell-
    You truely are an inspirational person, with an amazing kind soul! I just read about Reiki sessions, and am very interested in trying a session. I have, as you know, wanted to try yoga for well, years now and am finally spritually ready to try it, but I am thinking, if I “cleanse” MY energy within me first, it might be more benefical for starting the yoga journey, as well as with in myself. I am going to check out your schedule and make an appointment for Pilates for Life session. Thank you again for all your insight, wisdom, readings, and motivation!
