Frequently Asked Questions
What is Reiki/Energy Healing?
Reiki is a non-evasive, natural Japanese healing modality that promotes peace and relaxation by having a practitioner tap into your energy system. It is a complementary healing practice that underscores any other treatment; is not associated with any religion. The word Reiki means: Rei = Higher spiritual consciousness and Ki = Life Energy. When we are sick, mentally or emotionally drained, the Ki sometimes gets sluggish or blocked; treatment can help restore healing energy to your body. Sessions are either in person or via distance and are as equally effective.
Reiki/Energy Healing - What's in it for me?
Restores and balances the four pillars of our well being: Mental, Emotional, Spiritual, Physical
Reduces stress and anxiety
Can move across time and space; it can be sent with positive intent to a future event/situation or provide healing from the past
Supports any other form of healing (medical, massage, acupuncture, etc.)
Flushes toxins from your system
Has the same positive effects on our pets or barnyard friends
Can be used on all living things, like plants or even in food! (Yes, you can Reiki Gram-gram's meatballs!)
When channeling this energy, a practitioner sometimes receives intuitive messaging. It is wonderful to receive a message from a loved one, or just some universal wisdom imparted just for you.
Reiki/Energy Healing with Extras...what's up with that?
Some practitioners use crystals, essential oils, sound, color, etc. as part of the treatment. Why? All things vibrate at their own frequency and these "extras" have a higher vibrational frequency. What this does is raise your frequency to match and often "amps up" the effects of the treatment. I can make recommendations if you are seeking something additional and am happy to add any of those things to your session at no extra cost. I do not sell essential oils, but can put you in touch with a highly recommended Reiki Master who does. She even uses them (safely) on the animals she treats as well!
At an additional cost, I do offer an oracle card reading to your distance session. When I am tapped into your energy for treatment, there couldn't be a better time to draw cards to provide additional insight. You can read more on my go-to decks and what the service might look like.
What are the Reiki Principals?
These principals are the guideposts for all practitioners, but are a benefit to anybody who can incorporate them into their daily life. When you start to say these three times in the morning, and three times before bedtime, it will truly be transformative. Try it for two months and let me know how it has changed your life!
