What is Reiki?

Reiki means "Universal Life Force." It was developed in the 1900's by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese monk. It is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on technique that works by restoring and balancing all body systems and vitalizes the body cells.


I provide Reiki treatments tailored to your needs, and they can be 30, 60 or 90 minutes long. You would either be lying down on a massage table or sitting in a chair (or a combination), and your clothes stay on during treatments. Each session starts with a check-in during which we talk about what you are needing and your intention for the treatment, and I do a brief assessment. Then the rest of the session involves you relaxing on the massage table or in the chair while I gently go through the different hand positions as we work on your head and neck and front and back. If requested, I may include a mental treatment in the session, which helps with clearing any mental or emotional blocks you may be experiencing. Then a short debriefing at the very end follows the Reiki treatment, during which I give you feedback about the session and we talk about your self-care for the days to come.
