Reiki (pronounced as ‘raykey’) is a spiritual healing art- the practice of transmitting healing energy through the hands. Reiki is based on the philosophy that there is a universal energy that supports the body’s inherent self-healing abilities. Reiki Practitioners seek to access this energy,allowing it to follow to the body and facilitate the healing process. Reiki comes in through the crown chakra and out through the palms of the practitioner This energy is then embedded into the human energy system, or chakra system, and removes any blockages that may be creating stagnancy. It is an extremely relaxing and enjoyable experience.
What to expect during your session.
If this is your first Reiki session and are not sure what to expect, here is an over view of a typical session. Your practitioner will have a brief, private consultation prior to your session to assure we are meeting your needs and answering any questions you may have. If you are booking your appointment online, you would have filled out an intake form, which we will have. All forms and information are strictly confidential per HIPPA requirements.
During your Reiki session you will remain fully clothed, (we request shoes be removed and clean socks worn and that you wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing) while laying comfortably on a massage table. The session proceeds with the practitioner placing their hands on the recipient, if you do not wish to have your practitioner place their hands on you, we will gladly use a non-touching approach. This is where the practitioners hands are a placed few inches away from your body. This is equally as effective as the hands on approach. The practitioners hands are usually kept still for 3 to 5 minutes before moving to the next position. The hand positions usually give a general coverage of the head, the front and back of the torso, knees and feet. Sometimes hands and arms as well depending on the needs of the recipient. You may feel warmth or tingling in the area being treated, even when using a non-touching approach. A state of deep relaxation combined with a general feeling of well-being is usually the most noticeable immediate effect of the treatment. In some cases clients have fallen asleep during their session! A typical treatment can last anywhere from 30-60 minutes depending on the session you choose.
All sessions are performed in our Wellness Center which is separate from our tattoo area, which will provide you with a private, calm, relaxed, quiet session.
