What is Reiki and what is energy healing?

Updated: Jan 9, 2021

Reiki can help with relaxation, stress relief, emotional release, pain relief, spiritual connection and understanding. Yes, please! It is a Japanese energy healing modality that involves the "laying of hands," and it is universal life force energy - the energy that is higher than us, that connects us, and that makes up every atom and every being. Reiki can heal on a very deep level because it not only addresses issues of the physical body, but also issues of the emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. If you'd like to understand more about the different bodies and how they impact each other, check out some of the research done by Louise Hay, specifically Heal Your Body.

When it comes to healing, we've got to look at the root cause of what's happening. You know those moments when physiological stress starts to impact you psychologically? Or when psychological stress impacts you physically? It starts off as a fight or flight or freeze response, but when stress overloads our bodies, we release large amounts of stress-related hormones. When those hormones take the driver seat, we start shutting down or reacting in different ways. Maybe you're not sleeping, which then disrupts your patience levels and your mood...maybe you start to feel anxious and depressed...or perhaps you start getting weird pains, and you don't know where they're coming from.

It's all connected. Reiki and energy healing can help with the physical symptoms, but there's a chance Reiki can also support you while you uncover the root cause. And remember our good pal Einstein? "Energy can neither be created nor destroyed; energy can only be transferred or changed from one form to another." Reiki helps create a calm, relaxing space to release blocks and move energies, finding new pathways and new ways to move forward in a proactive way for your highest good.

A Reiki session is generally an hour long, and clothes are required during the session. It is non-invasive, non-manipulative and is offered with hands on or hands off the body. I will lead you into a meditation and offer essential oils, finishing with grounding and an aura cleanse. In dealing with these COVID times, a mask will be worn for in-person sessions, and I am offering virtual distance healing in 30 minute sessions as well.

Reiki is "love, pure and simple."
