What is Reiki?
What is Reiki? Reiki (ray-kee) is a gentle, holistic technique used to promote stress reduction and relaxation. It is helpful in restoring mind-body-spirit balance and harmony. Reiki is a type of energy. In fact, Reiki is spiritually guided "life force" energy. Everything is made of energy, including our body. Our body is desgined to function at it's best when our energy is centered and balanced. In times of stress, you may feel any imbalance in the form of irritability, anxiety, exhaustion, or simply feeling "out of sorts." Over time, trauma, feelings of stress, fear, and/or anxiety could lead to energetic blockages in your body. Receiving Reiki assists in removing these blockages, so that your body can be in a natural state of balance, for your highest good.
How does Reiki work? Reiki energy is passed from the Reiki practitioner, to the client, and flows to areas that are in need of healing (e.g., physical, emotional, spiritual) by “laying on of hands” (or can also be done completely off-body) on a fully clothed individual. The client may be seated in a chair or lying on a Reiki table. The Reiki practitioner places his/her hands above or on specific points to balance the flow of energy. Reiki works for the client's highest good, and surrounds each recipient with loving energy, so that the body can try to heal itself.
What does it feel like? Your experience during a Reiki session may vary from one session to another, as life happens, and the energy in your body is always changing. Some people feel heat, warmth, or tingling sensations. Some people see colors or images. Some people may experience an emotional cleansing. Some people may feel more alert and rejuvenated, and others may simply feel more relaxed, clear, and peaceful after a treatment.
Why should I get a session? Reiki sessions may supplement conventional medical care by reducing anxiety, relieving stress, reducing side effects, decreasing pain, improving mental clarity, and shortening healing time.
How often should I get a Reiki session? There is no right or wrong answer. Reiki can be done at any time. If there is a pressing or chronic issue, it is beneficial to come at least once a month (some people prefer weekly or bi-weekly sessions at first, for acute issues). For those who want to maintain a good energy balance, Reiki sessions four times a year (at the beginning of each season) may be helpful.
A typical session incorporates traditional Reiki techniques with chakra, aura , and energy balancing, spitirual/intuitive messages (if requested), and the supplemental use of crystals. Cell memory technique may be incorporated, upon request, to aid in the release of trapped memories, which are stored in our body at the cellular level. It is important to release these stagnant or negative cellular memories, in order to help heal mind-body-spirit.
Reiki Healing Sessions: In-Person Sessions: 30 min-$60 60 minutes-$100
***To assist with healing during COVID-19, distance Reiki session prices are reduced to $30 for 30 minutes and $50 for 60 minutes, and payable via Paypal or through my Etsy Shop at Live and Breathe Reiki (link at bottom of website)**
Distance Reiki Healing Sessions: 30 minutes-$50* (see note above) If you cannot be physically present for a session, you can receive a distance Reiki session. The effects are the same as an -in person session, but you can receive from the comfort of your own home. Follow-up phone-call or email included.
Monthly Reiki Circles: (2 hours- $15) the Reiki Share begins with a short introduction/discussion, followed by a simple grounding meditation, and an opportunity for all to receive and practice giving Reiki, in a small group setting. Each person will take turns laying on the treatment table and receiving Reiki, simultaneously, from any present Reiki Practitioners. Treatment time is determined by the number of people in attendance, and is divided equally (typically 10-20 minutes per person). For those who have never received a Reiki session before, it is a great opportunity to experience what a Reiki session feels like, at a reduced rate. For Reiki Practitioners, it is a sacred space to practice, share, and grow. Space is limited to a maximum of five people. Minimum of three people needed.

Reiki may not cure a specific illness and is not a substitute for professional medical treatment. Reiki does not take the place of medical, psychiatric, or psychological care. Reiki sessions are intended to be a complementary service, to aid in relaxing the body and mind. I do not diagnose conditions, perform medical treatment, prescribe substances, or interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional. If you have any medical conditions or concerns, you should seek advice from your doctor. With Reiki and other forms of energy work, there is no guarantee of success. Any spiritual information that is channeled or received during the session, is offered as part of my practice as a healing minister, and should not be taken as medical advice. I am not liable for any direct/indirect issues resulting from the spiritual information or advice provided.
