What is Reiki?
Simply put, Reiki (Ray Key) is the transformation of positive healing energy through the hands of the practitioner to the client. The practitioner is a vessel through which this Universal Life Force flows and in doing so clears the energy centres (chakras) by removing energy blocks in the body and leaving the client with a feeling of deep relaxation. When energy is not moving smoothly throughout our bodies, it results in emotional, physical or spiritual discomfort and disease. It is vital to our over all well being to keep the flwo of energy moving freely throughout and around our bodies.
How is it done?
This can all be done without ever physically touching the client making it an excellent session for those who are either in a lot of pain or emotionally are uncomfortable with being touched as in massage. All you need to do is lay down on the massage table, cover up with a nice warm blanket, close your eyes and let the energy flow. How does it get any better than that? The amazing part of Reiki is since it is energy work, the practitioner can work on you without you even being in the same room! However, the effects are so wonderful in person who wouldn't want to try out a session?
How do I book an appointment?
Simply use the contact information on this site to get in touch with me and a time will be set up that is convenient for you. I create a safe and sacred space in my home where I then perform these session with the highest respect for Reiki and you. All sessions whether you are having a private session or attending a workshop are held in the greatest confidence. A session is usually one hour in length and will include the Reiki work and a consultation prior to and after so any questions can be discussed.
Interested in Learning to Perform Reiki?
There are four levels of Reiki that I teach. Level One goes over the basic hand techniques, the history of Reiki and ethics. This is intended to be used on yourself and family and friends. Level Two teaches you symbols that are used to increase the energy flow, long distance Reiki, studies more on the connection of mind, body and spirit in overall well being. Once you have this level you can hand your shingle as a Reiki Practitioner. You will need to have completed Level One first before taking this part of Reiki. Level Three is where you study more of the spiritual aspects, learn more symbols, talk about how to use other modalities along with Reiki and you will need Level One and Two. Master Level will teach you how to be a teacher yourself. As you can imagine in order to get the Master you will have had to completed the other three levels. I often will combine Level Three and Masters in the same course.
What sets the teaching of Reiki apart from other forms of energy work is your receiving what is called an attunement with each level. This is a symbolic ceremony the Master (me) performs for each student to activate the Reiki symbols in you to become a practitioner. In the Master Level you learn to pass the attunement. Upon completion of each Level you will receive a certificate and a workbook for your future reference and review.
