Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that helps to raise our vibration in order to heal in the ways that we need to - mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Reiki is a high vibrational energy force that is transmitted through a practitioner who is trained and attuned to the energy. This can be done with a hands-on approach, or above the body a couple inches to work with a person's Aura, or it can even be done at a distance - since Reiki works with our energy.
Reiki can be done in within a private 30 minute, 60 minute, or 75 minute long session in a private room (similar to when getting a massage). It can also be done briefly within a yoga class, and it can even be done for someone at a distance (yes, miles away!).
One of the greatest benefits is stress reduction and relaxation, which triggers the body's natural healing abilities (immune system) as well as aiding in better sleep and improving and maintaining health. It is especially helpful if you are feeling stressed or are just feeling a little "off". Reiki is energy work that can open and balance our chakras - providing emotional, mental and spiritual healing. This can improve our mood, perspective, decision making, and accelerate the body's self-healing ability. Our vibration becomes higher and our over-all wellbeing is improved.
Reiki is always positive, and each client may have a different experience depending on what is going on with them emotionally or physically. For example, someone with shoulder pain may feel more heat from a reiki practitioners hands when they are at their shoulder compared to other places, whereas someone who is grieving may feel more heat around their heart chakra (click here to read about the chakras) for emotional healing. Some may not experience that at all, and will even fall asleep - which is totally normal and okay! The reiki energy will still be working and will flow where it needs to.
Since Reiki works with our energy, we can receive reiki from a distance and still receive the same benefits. We can think about the way we experience space and time - is not how space and time actually exist. We live in a linear timeline.. and with reiki, we transcend space and time. It's all about energy. When we think about love, and of the metaphor, "You can love someone while being oceans away. You can still feel that person's energy, even if they're not in front of you."
During a session, you can expect to lay down on a massage table (fully clothed) with a relaxing atmosphere contained of dim lighting and calm music. Reiki is typically done by gentle touch, but can also be practiced without touch and hovered above the body working with aura, so there is no contact (this does not make it any less effective).
Some practitioners do things a little different in their sessions, but in a session with Jenny, she will test your chakras to see what is currently going on (if they are blocked or unblocked). This helps to bring forth insight and understanding to each individual and what is going on with them directly, which is beneficial to the healing process. After this, reiki begins for 30 minutes, 60 minutes, or 75 minutes depending on the time length you chose.
Other items used in a reiki session can include essential oils, crystals, relaxing music, oracle cards, eye pillow, and yoga props such as bolsters or blankets to promote comfort for the duration of your session.
For planning purposes, I would give yourself an additional 10 minutes before your session so you have enough time to talk with the reiki practitioner as well as 10 minutes after our session to take your time leaving. This will just help give some wiggle room so you do not feel rushed getting in and out.
Jenny is currently offering reiki sessions at two locations:
30 Minute Session: $40
60 Minute Session: $70
60 Minute Session: $70
75 Minute Session: $85
