Questions & Answers

What is Reiki? 

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei, which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki, which is "life force energy".The treatment feels like a warm, unconditional love that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person - including body, emotions, mind and spirit, while creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of inner peace, security and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results. Reiki is a simple natural, and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. Reiki is spiritual in nature in that it provides love and compassion to the client. it is not a religion nor does it require belief for it to work. 

What if I don't believe that reiki works?

Reiki works, whether or not you believe that it does. Energy Healing always goes towards your highest good. If this is your first reiki session, the energy may not start working on what your wanting it to immediately. This healing energy will go where your body, mind and soul needs it first so that the rest of your energy body may start healing as well. It can take a couple of sessions or more depending on what needs healed. We can talk more about this during your free discovery email. 

How do distance healings work? 

Reiki (Universal Life Force Energy) teaches us that we are more than just our physical bodies and that Reiki surrounds us as an energy body. Reiki energy connects on our spiritual and energetic levels. Distant Reiki sessions work because energy is not limited by distance. Distance is only a physical limitation, so sessions can be done without you being physically present. We are all connected, as we are all energy matter and part of a larger whole.

What Should I do before a reiki session?

You should try to be relaxed and calm. Laying down or in a comfortable seating position. You should do this in a quiet space were you can be alone for your session. Be open - minded and clear headed. Reiki only works for your highest good. Trust the process. Afterwards I take the notes and other items I have used during your session and give you an overview of what went on, and what I experienced. We will talk about how you are feeling as well and your thoughts.
