Heather was introduced to reiki in 2016 when her friend gave her distant healing for emotional wellness. After receiving regular sessions, she started noticing a difference in her every day life; a balance between her mind, body and spirit. 

In 2018, she decided to learn Usui reiki to help heal herself further and to assist others on their journey wether it may be for emotional, spiritual or physical wellness. She attended a reiki I course in November at the Reiki Center of Greater Washington. She felt very passionate about it so in 2019 she went back to attend a reiki II course. Reiki has made such a positive impact on her life that she plans on furthering the practice in May with a Master/Teacher course.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is made of two Japanese words; Rei meaning spirit, guided, conscious or universe. Ki meaning life force energy.

What should I expect from a reiki session?

Reiki is provided by a certified Reiki Practitioner or a certified Reiki Master/Teacher using specific hand positions either hovering above the body or lightly touching the body. Reiki has many benefits including: stress and pain reduction, emotional release and it allows your body to heal itself. During the session, the client lies on a massage table fully clothed, usually starting on the back and then turning on to the stomach. The practitioner places their hands lightly on the body or above it, usually starting at the head and working down towards the feet. The client often feels a sense of flowing heat, coolness or tingling. 

How long does a reiki session last?

A reiki session usually lasts around 60 or 90 minutes.

How often should I get a reiki session done?

Three sessions close together is the most effective option when working with acute issues such as pre/post operative visits. Regular sessions are more helpful than randomly taking a session every once in awhile. Most clients notice an effect after one session, some need up to four to notice a difference. 

How does reiki energy work to provide healing?

The clients immune system draws the energy into the energy field or aura. It helps to eliminate energetic "blockages" that are often one source of pain. With the clearing of the blockages, the clients full energy can be used to achieve balance.
