Reiki Session


Reiki practice helps individuals connect to their inner selves to cultivate in resiliency and calm. Reiki practice allows us to have a different relationship with what is happening with us/to us/in our lives/in our relationships.


Reiki, a mind-body healing and meditation practice, assists the body's systems to restore their natural repair mechanisms that are overly-taxed by the frantic pace of daily life. Reiki can elicit the Relaxation Response, promoting health creation.


Reiki sessions and trainings facilitate spiritual growth and personal development. Through Reiki meditations and Reiki healing, people of all ages and backgrounds can cultivate the inner qualities they wish to bring forth. Reiki has no dogma, nor is it a religion.

How You Can Benefit From A Reiki Session

Reiki is beneficial for general wellness as well as for relief from specific physical and emotional health conditions. Reiki facilitates the Relaxation Response, which creates an environment within the body where healing can take place as the nervous system shifts from sympathetic to parasympathetic. Although many people seek Reiki for specific ailments, beneficial healing results frequently go beyond the particular condition, as those who experience Reiki practice report feeling more energized, calmer, more resilient, mindful, and more at ease with life's uncertainties.  Reiki recipients are encouraged to be invested and active in addressing their own healing process within the healing context of their Reiki session.

Your Reiki Session

The first session begins with a brief conversation. I will ask you a few questions so that I may plan the most beneficial sessions for your needs, comfort, and safety. Privacy and confidentiality are maintained at all times. I subscribe to the International Association of Reiki Professionals' (IARP) Code of Ethics which is available in my treatment room.

Following the initial conversation, your Reiki session starts lying fully clothed, resting comfortably on a massage table, covered with a blanket if desired. I will complete a series of hand placements, covering the major organs, glands, and joints of the body. If you indicate that you wish for me to pay specific attention to a particular injury or issue, I will also concentrate on that area during the session. In a typical session, the head and torso are worked on first, followed by the back and feet. Reiki practitioners never touch any private parts.

A Reiki session may look like no one is doing anything, and that is somewhat true because a Reiki session is not really about doing.  A Reiki session is more about being...being in connection with one's own thoughts, emotions, and body.  Being in connection with the qualities within oneself that one wishes to cultivate.  Being in connection with the kind of energy one wishes to bring forth.

A Reiki treatment may be conducted with the practitioner's hands on the body or just above the body, according to your preference.  Clients should be prepared to turn off cell phones and pagers.  During your session, I invite you to connect with yourself in stillness and ease of mind. If something feels uncomfortable during the session, I encourage you to inform me.  For example, if a client needs the restroom during a session, this is absolutely permitted.
