What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese term for “universal life force energy.” Reiki uses the energy that creates and resides in each of us and everything around us. Reiki is administered by a Reiki practitioner by a “laying on hands” technique. It is a relaxing and restorative practice that aids in self-healing. Reiki is channeled through the hands of a trained Reiki practitioner to a willing recipient and works to aid in stress reduction and emotional and physical well-being. Reiki can be a beautiful additional therapy with our End-of-Life Doula services.
“See the light in others and treat them as if that’s all the light that you see.”
What to Expect?
The Reiki healing session will last 45 Minutes to 1 hour and can be done distantly or in person. Sometimes the effects of a Reiki session are immediate, oftentimes feeling a sense of calm and deep relaxation afterwards. For instance, you may feel a “shift of energy” or you may experience slight physical sensations, like tingling, during the session. Other times, the outcome may be more evident in the weeks that follow, noticing subtle changes over time. Please note that clients remain fully clothed and receive treatment lying down on a treatment table with pillows for support.
