A Reiki session can help restore balance in your mental, emotional, and physical body. During a session, I send Reiki energy to each of your energy centers. Benefits include pain relief, stress reduction, improved mental functioning, calming of the nervous system. A session will last 45 - 60 minutes.
*I offer Reiki on a sliding scale fee.
Usui Reiki is a form of Japanese energy healing that dates back to the early 1900s. It was created by Mikao Usui, a man who dedicated his life to exploring systems of healing and enlightenment, (like, Chinese Medicine, other Eastern systems like Chi Gong, the Japanese equivalent Kiko). At one point, he became a Buddhist monk and took a 21-day retreat on a mountain in Japan. There, he had a vision of white light entering his head, expanding his awareness. It was his Reiki attunement.
Usui went on to attune and teach 16 people his Reiki in his lifetime, and one woman he taught, from Hawaii, brought it to the US, and it grew from there. The practice has evolved in many different ways, but the Usui Reiki principles set forth by Usui underpin its foundation:
Just for today do not anger.
Just for today do not worry
Just for today be grateful
Just for today work hard
Just for today be kind to all living things.
Hence, Reiki is a spiritual path (or personal development path, if you like), as well as a healing technique. When we receive Reiki, our mental, emotional, and physical bodies can come back into a state of balance. In short, Reiki activates our natural ability to heal.
