What is Reiki?
There is a conscious energy that flows throughout the universe and each living thing. Chi, Ki, Qi, Prana, Orgone...it has different names depending on your belief system and part of the world. This energy is active in every cell of the body, and affects us on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. Reiki is a method of energetic healing as old as humanity revived in the 1850's by a Japanese Buddhist monk named Mikao Usui. The practitioner is attuned to act as a vessel for free universal energy and directs it into the client's energy field. Reiki can be performed either in person or remotely. When done in person, the practitioner places their hands lightly on the body in 14 different positions. These hand positions correspond to the seven chakras, as well as all the glands and organs of the body. When I do Reiki, the hand positions correlate to intuitive guidance and energetic information I receive while connecting to you.
When Reiki is performed remotely, the healing is on a spiritual level; thus there are no restrictions of time and space like we experience in a three dimensional reality. It can be sent anywhere in the world in real-time or programmed to be received at a particular time when the recipient knows they will be resting. You can also request a distance healing to be sent to a friend, relative, pet, or even a relationship or situation.
Extensive information about Reiki can be found online. The most comprehensive website I have found of information and articles about Reiki is Reiki.org
What Does it Feel Like to Receive Reiki?
Each person has a unique, individual experience. However, every person I have worked with has experienced deep relaxation, a sense of peace, and clarity of mind. Energy can be perceived through any of our senses, or a combination of them.
Visual: You may see different colored lights, waves or clouds of color, symbols, memories, past life memories, visions, or random images
Auditory: You may hear ringing, buzzing, a vibration, music, tones, or receive auditory messages
Tactile: My clients have reported a variety of sensations while receiving Reiki including heat, cold, "pins and needles", expansion, vibration, pressure, water movement and twitching
Taste and smell: While not very common, you may experience different aromas or tastes
Many people fall asleep; this is perfectly normal, and actually advantageous because it quiets the conscious mind and allows for easier flow of energy.
You can read about some of the experiences of other clients on my testimonials page.
What Can Reiki Do for Me?
Reiki can affect you on every level; physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
Physical: Reiki can be used to deeply relax the body, help alleviate pain and inflammation, strengthen/speed the immune system response, and help to heal hormonal imbalances caused by disrupted energy flow. While receiving Reiki, a person's respiration, heart rate, and blood pressure lower naturally as their mind and body relax.
Emotional: If you have experienced a lot of trauma in your life, and have repressed emotions such as guilt, anger, resentment, or grief, Reiki can help to bring these emotions to the surface so they can be released and stop sapping life force. Repressed emotions don't always have to be negative, sometimes we repress feelings of love and joy as well.
Mental: Are you one of the many people who experiences constant "mind chatter" while trying to focus or relax? Are you kept awake at night by racing thoughts? Reiki can help to clear away energy residue left behind by anxiety or being in stressful environments, leaving your mind free and clear!
Spiritual: Every Reiki session will help to strengthen your connection to your own personal divine. Reiki is not associated with any particular religion or doctrine, and is compatible with any form of spirituality. If you are aware of and already use your psychic gifts, it is common to receive information while getting Reiki. If you have latent psychic abilities, they can be awakened through Reiki healing as blocks are removed from your energy body.
Please Note: Reiki is most effective for chronic issues when received as a series of sessions, although the majority experience a significant improvement in symptoms after just one session. Most of my clients prefer to see me weekly or twice monthly. Payment plans are available for pre-purchasing a series of sessions.
How Much Does Reiki Cost?
To some extent, the cost of this work is up to you! I realize that everyone has a different budget, and after years of doing energy work for a living, I have decided to use a sliding scale fee for healing sessions. I ask a minimum of $50 USD or 150 soles (in Peru) for a fair energy exchange per session, and sessions last between 60 and 90 minutes. If you feel after the session that it is more valuable to you, I will accept whatever amount you feel it is worth to you. Again, I do not turn anyone away. If you are really struggling financially, and truly feel this will help accelerate your healing and getting back on track, please contact me for payment options.
Payment is accepted in cash or through PayPal. PayPal accepts all credit cards and offers interest free financing for 6 months for purchases of $99 if you are interested in a package of sessions!
