Reiki Sessions & Education

Reiki - What is it?

Reiki means "universal life source energy." 

REIKI is a spiritual and vibrational healing practice that promotes balance on every level - body, mind and spirit, 

An individual session is offered through non-invasive, light touch to a fully-clothed client.  

It is a healing practice that enables people to access their own unique spirituality without dogma.  

Spirituality and medicine are intertwined; health is not seen as merely lack of disease. Rather, spiritual development is valued as the cornerstone of overall health.


Private Individual Sessions

Private sessions are usually approximately an hour long -allowing for pre and post session talk. 

There is no manipulation of the body nor any direction of energy. A connections is provided through which the healing pulsations spontaneously are activitated according to the need of the receiver.  

Holding the intention 'to receive what is needed in this moment in time for the highest good" is important. 

No  diagnosis is needed and the treatment plan varies little in each session.  It is the time and direction provided in the "oneness" energetic connection that in personal and individual.

Remote Reiki Sessions

Distance or time are not deterrents to experiencing Reiki.

Communication before a scheduled session could take place in writing or by phone. Remote sessions are generally 30 minutes in length- The practitioner offers guidance about find a time to enjoy a relaxed quiet location where there would be no disturbance or distraction. 

Generally there is an agreed upon time frame  tho intention is  important here as well. Openness to receive what is need in this moment in time is also the important intention.. 

It is not uncommon for healing relaxation to lead to a deep relaxing sleep. Session follow up is generally on a different day. 

Reiki is healing but not medicine in the sense that is not directed toward a specific goal.

How does one learn REIKI?

Reiki being a spiritual practice with a relationship / interactive component, choosing a teacher and taking a class is the best way to learn Reiki and be supported in the deepening of your practice. You will want to chose a teacher who is "doing her/his own work" and is an experienced practitioner as well as an experienced instructor.  

Reading a book, watching YouTube videos or enrolling in online courses provide information. But, they are lacking on the side of interaction, and personal energy experience. Also missed is the energy experience of "Reiju / Blessing". Short cuts generally leave one feeling short changed.
