What is Reiki
Reiki is a Japanese word meaning “universal life-force energy”; the "Ki" in the word is the same as the Chinese word Chi or Qi meaning “the energy which underlies everything”. As an energy-based healing modality, the focus of Reiki is on healing the body, reducing stress and achieving relaxation. Modern Reiki techniques were developed in Japan in the late 1800”s and early 1900”s and brought to Western countries after World War Two. Reiki has gained increasing popularity and credibility in last number of years. In fact, Dr. Mehmet Oz, talk show host and renowned surgeon, is married to Lisa Oz, a Reiki master and both believe strongly in energy work. Many hospitals and health care facilities are now offering Reiki and Therapeutic Touch (TT) to their patients.
Effects of Reiki

Chakras, Reiki and Aromatherapy- There are seven chakras or energy centers in different parts of the body. Each chakra is associated with a group of organs. Together, keep a person well. The hand positions used in Reiki, cover and treat all major chakras. When Reiki is used with essential oils related to the seven major chakras, together they create a powerful union. Reiki treatments clear the chakras of negative energy and blockages, restoring the ki or chi and helping the person to heal. Essential oils and aromatherapy are increasingly being used to increase the effectiveness of other healing modalities such as Reiki.
Reiki and Crystals - Crystals have been used for centuries as tools for healing and increasing levels of awareness with each stone being specially selected for specific frequencies and properties. Although combining Reiki with the use of crystals is relatively new, this branch of Reiki has the potential to not only transform your current Reiki practice, but our world as well. Crystals work through the human energy system- that is the chakras, and aura-and not through the physical body. Crystals enhance the placebo effect (where something has healing effect because it changes chemicals in the brain which make us feel better).
What you can expect from a session with me: Energy scan to see what chakra is blocked, once located the crystal will be placed on the blocked area, essential oils will be placed on area's needed and our work will begin. Reiki will last anywhere between 40-60 minutes. Longer sessions are available for a more through scan of the chakra and a take home yoga practice for that specific chakra that is blocked. To get started on your Reiki session please email me and attach our client form. I look forward to our session together.
