Reiki is a Japanese word which means “Universal Life Energy.” It is actually two words: Rei and Ki. Ki refers to the energy which makes our bodies alive, Rei is the Cosmic source of this energy. We are all born with Reiki. I use the Usui System of Natural Healing named after Dr. Mikao Usui who rediscovered the system in the late 1800’s, and Shambhala Reiki. Reiki can be facilitated in person or at a distance of many miles. In person, it can be hands on or hands above the body. Reiki helps to balance the body and quieten the mind. It can be used in conjunction with allopathic medicine. It is not a religion, and can be used with all faiths.
In studying various forms of vibrational healing, some of them quite complicated, I was led to take a Reiki I course. After experiencing powerful changes in myself and my family during the month of self-work following Reiki I, I realized that Reiki’s simplicity is the absolute beauty of it. I continued to read books, practice on myself and 16 months later took Reiki II. After further study and intense self work with impressive results on both myself and our pets, I decided to become a Reiki Master Teacher.
As a Reiki practitioner certified at the Master/Teacher level, I continue to study Reiki because of the transformations I have seen in my life and the lives of my pets. I have studied under five Reiki teachers, drinking up all they have to offer. I am a Licensed Spiritual Healer LSH #1079 since May 2012, a certified veterinary homeopath (British Institute of Homeopathy), and an Aromatherapy coach. My membership in the Reiki Rays Institute keeps me in touch with the latest Reiki advancements. I teach out of my home studio (winters in TX, summers in WI). With a degree in music education, teaching comes naturally to me, and I am happy to merge these skills.
If you should choose Reiki Treatment in Person
During your in-person session, I use a very light touch, with hands held in twelve positions on your body’s energy centers. If you would prefer, my hands can be above your body – this is completely up to you. At the very beginning of the session I scan above your body with my hands to determine where more Reiki Energy may be needed.
Usually people feel warmth or even hot hands. Sometimes a slight vibration. Don’t worry if you feel nothing – Reiki energy is still working. You may feel the effects of your Reiki session even a week after. You may experience a detox, you may feel more content or relaxed. Always drink lots of water both before and after a session. Energy runs best in a hydrated body.
