A precious gift to yourself or a loved one

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese energy work technique for relaxation and stress reduction that also promotes healing. This therapy is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy", or universal life force, flows through all things.  The energy flows through each of us and it is this energy that keeps us alive.  With a low "life force energy" , one is more likely to get sick or feel stress.  With a high "life force energy", we are more capable of being healthy and get more enjoyment out of life.  Usui Reiki includes working with the aura surrounding the receiver.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". The word "Reiki" translates to a "spiritually guided life force energy."  Reiki is not a religion.

Usui reiki experienced a rebirth in the mid 1800s through a Japanese born Buddhist monk, Dr. Mikao Usui, who sought the path to secret healing so he could help himself and others.  Dr. Usui was motivated by a student's question about how Jesus facilitated the healing miracles bestowed upon others.

A treatment is designed to draw this "life force energy" through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

Reiki is a natural, safe and simple method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that can benefit everyone. It has been effective in helping in creating a beneficial effect. Reiki is not intended to replace  medical and conventional therapy treatments.  It works in conjunction with all other medical, therapeutic, or alternative therapy techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.  Though there are no conclusive scientific studies on the results of reiki treatment, many who receive reiki report the following areas receive benefits:

  • Chronic pain
  • Stress
  • Surgery recovery
  • Side effects of chemotherapy or radiation
  • Improvements in immunity and responses to illness
  • Enhancing the sense of peace
  • Sense of spirituality and/or physical and emotional wellbeing

Many individuals leave Reiki sessions feeling relaxed and energized.  Why wait?  Contact me for your complimentary consultation at (804) 774-8363 or by using the contact page of this website.  

What is the Reiki treatment setting?

The treatment setting is calm, quiet and relaxing.  
During a Reiki session with me, you can choose to receive Reiki on a massage table, or comfortably in a chair, fully clothed, with quiet and relaxing music. I can provide music or you can bring your own relaxing music for the session.  You can choose essential oil diffusion with reiki with an essential oil of your choice.  We will discuss the details before your session.  You will have an opportunity to relax prior to the session.  ​I can give reiki in a treatment area or in homes, hospices, hospitals, nursing homes or other settings.

What does the session consist of?

During a Usui Reiki session, you can choose to receive Reiki on a massage table, or comfortably in a chair, fully clothed, with quiet and relaxing music. Clients often find that a session increases their energy level. Reiki sessions are a great investment in yourself or a loved one.  

Is there a health interview?

We will have a short discussion when you make your first appointment.  At the time of your appointment, I will ask you to tell me about anything that has changed since our first conversation.  This will help me to focus on areas that relate to your current physical, emotional and spiritual states.  I will have you sign a statement that relays, among other items of interest, that you understand that a reiki treatment does not replace traditional medical care or advice.

What do I do during the session?

All you need to do during the session is to relax.  I recommend that you keep your eyes closed which enhances the benefits of focusing on nothing but relaxation and receiving reiki. 

How long is a session and do you offer aromatherapy with Reiki?

What should I expect after the session?

Many who receive reiki express that they experience a great deal of energy after the session.  Many claim that headaches, skeletal and muscle tissue pain and other physical and emotional ailments are relieved.  

It's important to drink plenty of water before and after Reiki.  I will provide you with a bottle of water.  I prefer for you to relax and enjoy the healing and wellness benefits of the session, so I will follow up with you the following day to inquire about how you are doing and obtain feedback from your session.  Of course, immediately after the session you can feel free to ask questions or give feedback if you wish. 

 ​ A session lasts for 60 to 90 minutes and the receiver can remain fully clothed.  You may choose a heated table.  Reiki can be combined with diffusion of therapeutic grade essential oils or with the aromatherapy Raindrop Technique (or touch technique) for a relaxing and aromatic session based on your needs.

Do you offer reiki to children and/or pets?

Yes, giving reiki is appropriate for all living things.  It is based on energy and is usually received very well by children and pets because they open their minds to new things.  Giving reiki to children or pets may last from 15 to 60 minutes depending on your child or your pet and your preference.  Reiki sessions for infants can last from 30 to 90 minutes.  Reiki is a wonderful energy sharing that may calm, improve moods, or benefit other physical and/or psychological areas.  I can give reiki in homes, hospitals, a treatment area, or other setting.   Reiki can be given to all pets, farm animals, animals at shelters or hospitals, feral/wild animals, and in other settings.  You can remain in the area at all times.
