Achieve a Vital Balance in Your Life…
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you sick and tired of being tired and sick?
- Is your mind or body stressed?
- Are you feeling run down?
- Does your body feel like it needs to be nourished?
- Do you feel the call to listen to your inner knowing?
- Do you feel like your head is in the clouds or you are spacing out?
- Are you looking to reduce those nagging aches and pains?
- Do you have a racing mind from all those thoughts going around your head?
- Would you like a good night’s sleep?
- When was the last time you were deeply relaxed?
- Do you feel mentally or physically exhausted?
If you’ve answered ‘Yes’ to one or more of these questions then a Reiki session could help you banish that sluggish feeling and lack of vitality. Reiki treats you as a whole person, and creates a healing environment for your body, mind, emotions and spirit. It also creates many beneficial effects that go beyond the sessions because you are connected to the free flowing and enriching Universal Life Energy.
Reiki gives you the time to become more aware of what is going on inside your body and mind. You can learn to rest, be at peace and keep stillness, even as the world keeps moving around you. The more present you are in your body, the more you can access that inner knowing and wisdom that we all have!

What happens during a Reiki Session?
In a standard treatment Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands into the client. The client is usually laying on a massage table but treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing. The client remains fully clothed. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the clients body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the clients needs. Each position is held for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki the client needs at each position. The whole treatment usually lasts between 45 and 90 minutes. The time depends on when the body stops accepting the energy being given.
What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings, a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside their bodies or have visions and other mystical experiences. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
What does all this energy do?
Reiki has had a positive affect on all forms of illness and negative conditions. This includes minor things like head or stomach aches, bee stings, colds, flu, tension and anxiety as well as serious illness like heart disease, cancer, leukemia, etc. (Once I even took care of a burn from a curling iron) The side effects of regular medical treatments can also be reduced or eliminated. This includes the negative effects of chemotherapy, post operative pain and depression as well as improving the healing rate and reducing the time needed to stay in the hospital. Reiki always helps and in some cases people have experienced complete healing which have been confirmed by medical tests before and after the Reiki treatments. (read about my experience with my Mom’s tumor here). However, while some have experienced miracles, they cannot be guaranteed. Stress reduction with some improvement in ones physical and psychological condition are what most experience.
What Does a Reiki Practitioner NOT Do?
Reiki sessions are given for the purpose of stress reduction and relaxation to promote healing. Reiki is not a substitute for medical diagnosis and treatment. Reiki practitioners do not diagnose conditions nor do they prescribe, perform medical treatment, nor interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional.
