Reiki (Ki) energy is a subtle energy known as universal life force energy. It is different than electricity, chemical energy and other kinds of physical energy. Reiki energy comes from a Higher Power, which exists on a higher dimension than the physical world. However, the true healing from Reiki energy comes from within ourselves, therefore the energy is coming from a transcendental part of ourselves connected to an infinite supply of healing energy. Reiki engages the universal life force energy, which is our connection between body, mind and spirit.
Reiki helps promote healing by reducing stress and promoting relaxation on a very deep level. When you are deeply relaxed, our body’s own ability to heal itself is activated. Reiki can bring a steady, gradual improvement to every aspect of your life. To have a true sense of well being, the physical body, emotional body, mental body and spiritual body need to be in balance and harmony with each other. It is important to remember that Reiki does not use your personal energy or the energy of the practitioner. The practitioner is simply the conduit of the universal life force energy for the client.
Reiki is for everyone regardless of age, sex, race, and background, state of health and religious beliefs or affiliations. Reiki can do no harm and does not interfere with any other type of treatment or medication. In fact, Reiki is always complementary to all types of healthcare you may be receiving, Reiki is not a religion or cult and does not contradict any religious beliefs. Reiki does not require belief or faith, just an open desire to receive the energy for your highest good. Reiki promotes physical, mental and spiritual well being.
Reiki is a very simple process, but usually produces quite profound effects. The main purpose of Reiki is not only healing, but also to promote a positive mind and healthy body so that people can experience the joy of life. However, Reiki does not promise a miraculous cure from diseases or conditions. The person has to want to be well and will probably need to make some lifestyle changes so that the source of stress and negative emotions does not reoccur. It takes time for the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies to be brought back into balance. Reiki unlike many modern remedies works directly on restoring the balance on all levels and works directly on the problem and condition instead of just masking or relieving symptoms.

The only difference between in-person and remote session is that we are not in the same room and we would not have any live conversation during the actual session. As your Reiki practitioner, I can still tap into your energy remotely, move through your body and shift energy the same way I would in an in-person session. Distance Reiki sessions are highly effective and work just as well as well as an in-person treatment. Remote sessions are wonderful because you are able to be in your own comfortable surroundings and obtain maximum relaxation. The more at ease and relaxed you are, the greater benefits you will receive from your session. Most clients are able to tell what part of the body I am working on even though we may be thousands of miles apart.
The frequency for which you may receive Reiki sessions varies depending on your goals and what you are looking to heal. After your initial session, I would be able to advise a specific frequency based on an individual basis. If you are simply looking for a little energy boost, having a particularly stressful week or have a cold coming on, you might consider 1-2 sessions a month. If you are suffering from a serious illness or recovering from a serious accident, you might consider weekly sessions. The client would always make the decision based on what is best for their highest good. A key point to remember is that the client is the person healing themselves, so specific amounts during or period of time or as needed basis is always the best approach to take. From my personal perspective as a healer, my goal is for the client to heal themselves where they no longer need energy healing on a regular basis.
Reiki must be experienced in order to understand what energy feels like. The experience of a Reiki session is subjective, changeable, and sometime very subtle. The experience often varies somewhat from client to client. Some people feel nothing, apart from feelings of deep relaxation that are usually felt by most clients. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. Other common experiences may include: feeling warmth, coolness, tingling sensation, flowing sensation, pulsations, seeing colors, seeing images, experience emotions and falling into a deep sleep. Any of these or none of these are all part of the individual process and should not be fought for or against. Each experience is unique for the individual person and their experience is based on the client. Reiki is a cumulative process and even clients who don’t notice much the first time usually have progressively deeper experiences if they continue. Besides the immediate experience of the Reiki session, you may notice other changes that continue to unfold as the day goes on and days pass. I highly recommend that you go into your initial session with an open mind and no expectations, as this will allow you to relax and enjoy the experience.
