REIKI is a form of deep relaxation and healing. Its origins are based in Japan and the name Rei (pronounced ray) means ”higher power” and ki (pronounced key) means “life force energy”. Simply stated then, Reiki means “spiritually guided life force energy”. A Reiki session requires nothing from you except an open heart and mind. During a session, you simply lie on a massage table while I act as a facilitator (placing my hands possibly on you or around you) for your energy to do its work. You may feel warmth, tingling, muscle twitching or nothing at all. You may experience emotional releases and blockages opening up. A realization could be made about something you have been thinking about or you might have a vision. Or, you might fall into a deep state of relaxation and sleep. It’s all beneficial, informational, and restorative.
I have been practicing Reiki since 2006. I first sought out a Reiki practitioner to heal a knee injury. With one Reiki session, my knee was back to normal. I’m not kidding! I was amazed at what transpired in one session, physically and mentally. I went to see this person hoping to heal a physical ailment. What I didn’t realize was that Reiki doesn’t discriminate. Meaning, the Reiki energy goes where your body needs it to go. There is no influence by your mind or the practitioner. It just knows where to go and what to do. Not only was my knee healed, but I released deep seated emotions that I wasn’t aware were even still hanging around. Again, I had to know more about Reiki, how it worked and how I could provide this level of healing to myself for the rest of my life. I became a Level 1 and 2 Reiki practitioner through a process called an attunement (please see below if you are interested in learning more about this process).
I practiced Reiki on myself and my family for a couple of years and in the spring of 2010, became a Level 3, Reiki Master. At this level of Reiki experience, I not only provide Reiki sessions for others, but can teach them how to become a Reiki practitioner as well. I am certified through the International Center for Reiki Training and am a member of the Northwest Reiki Association.
Would you like to learn Reiki? In order to become a Reiki Practitioner, a person must receive an attunement from a Reiki Master. I am trained in the Usui/Tibetan Lineage and will be scheduling trainings for people who wish to become Reiki practitioners in this lineage. I will be holding trainings for Level I, II, and III. If you are interested in becoming attuned prior to a scheduled training, please contact me.
