These are just a few of the reasons people seek Reiki treatment. Since Reiki is balancing on all levels - mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual - it can be effective for a wide variety of issues. Founded in the early 1900s in Japan, Reiki’s foundation lies in the view that our health and happiness is a direct result of how balanced our energy is. When in balance, we feel calm and at ease. In imbalance, we feel tension in the body, and more likely to experience mental, emotional, or physical dis-ease. As our bodies return to a more balanced energetic state, the natural healing abilities within each of us can function at optimum levels. We start to sleep better, which leads to more periods of deep rest which our bodies need to heal.
Some of the benefits of mindfulness meditation are decreased stress and anxiety, less rumination and depressive symptoms, less emotional reactivity, reduced age and race bias, increased body satisfaction and self-acceptance, improved mental cognition, improved focus and concentration, and the ability to filter out distractions. With disciplined practice, mindfulness meditation can also become a spiritual path, cultivating love, kindness, and compassion.
everyone, regardless of one's background or beliefs (it’s religiously neutral). We draw on a variety of wisdom traditions for their teachings on mindfulness, as well as the science of mindfulness to teach the fundamentals of the practice.
Do you have trouble sleeping? Are you stressed or experiencing anxiety? Do you feel “stuck” in your life and lack clarity for how to move forward towards your goals? Are you undergoing medical treatment for disease and wondering what else you can do to complement your treatment and support your healing?
When you come in for a Reiki session, you will lie comfortably on a massage table, fully clothed. With lights dimmed and relaxing ambient sounds, the environment is sure to put you in a state of comfort and ease. During your session, I will place hands on or above the body in various positions, working intuitively to facilitate the balancing of your energy. You will deeply relax into your session, and feel refreshed when you leave. Many people report improvement after their first Reiki session, and the subtleties of Reiki healing can be cumulative, so additional sessions can bring increased benefits.
