What is Reiki?

Also known as Universal Life Energy or Spirit-guided Life Energy, traditional Reiki is a way of balancing the human energy system with gentle touch and intention. It is informed by a number of diverse, ancient Eastern traditions that were brought together as a system of healing taught by Dr. Mikao Usui.

Reiki is a gentle, non-manipulative hands-on technique that balances the body, mind and spirit, and promotes a sense of tranquility and total well-being by removing energy blockages.

Today, Reiki is widely being offered as an alternative healing method in hospitals, nursing homes, and many other facilities. Evidence is accumulating that Reiki can help patients heal faster and with less pain.

What can I expect in a session?

A Reiki session consists of first lying face up, clothed and covered with a blanket, on a massage table while I perform a series of hand placements designed to infuse you with Reiki energy. I will then ask you to lie face down on the table, clothed and covered, while I perform a second series of hand placements.

Depending on my intuition, I may also make use of several other modalities as part of a Reiki session. I may add some crystals on or beneath the massage table, or as a body lay-out, or to be hand-held by the recipient. I may also incorporate of a variety of shamanic techniques including but not limited to journeys and visualizations to help clear energetic blockages.

This treatment is known to induce a sense of calm and relaxation, as well as improved physicality. Each subsequent session will follow a similar, customized process.

Reiki treatments last approximately an hour and can be provided either hands-on or across distance. Please contact me to schedule an appointment.


Cost – Each Reiki session is $65.00.
