Welcoming Wellness: Reiki

Reiki is a holistic system for balancing, healing, and harmonizing all aspects of the person-body, mind, emotions, and spirit-encouraging deep relaxation and the release of stress and tension, and promoting awareness and spiritual growth.

During a healing Reiki session, Reiki flows from a practitioner’s hands into the client. The client is lying fully clothed on a massage table, your Reiki therapist will gently place his/her hands on or near your body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Specific positions may be used based on the client’s needs and/or requests. Each position is held for about three to five minutes. A session can last between 30, 60 or  90 minutes.


Some clients drift off to sleep while others experience a tingling sensation throughout their bodies.

Each Reiki session is unique to the individual person, and each session varies as the person continues to heal more deeply, however, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. To increase comfort levels, the room will be dimly lit and relaxing music will be playing softly in the background. Essential oils are typically used during the sessions to aid in relaxation and stress-reduction
