Reiki Energy Healing is one of the most gentle and non-evasive forms of healing.
Reiki is the method of tapping into the Universal Life Force Energy that surrounds us and using that energy to heal the imbalances and blockages we can hold within our bodies. These blockages can be caused from stress, illness, past pain, trauma and more.
When we hold onto the energy of emotions we experienced in our past, it remains present in our unconscious energy field and travels throughout our body like "free radical energy". Reiki helps to release these blockages by allowing the body to go into a calm and relaxing state by connecting with our mind, body and spirit. The white, loving light of Reiki travels from the crown chakra, (the top of the head), down to the feet. Many people report feeling a release through both their head and feet, as well as a feeling of lightness within, like a weight has been lifted.
I've had many clients tell me they felt like their brain was "whooshing" around in their skull. Others say they could feel the energy moving from one side of their head to the other. When working on the crown chakra, Reiki Practitioners are working on balancing the right and left brain hemispheres, so it's no wonder people can feel what is energetically taking place.
During a treatment clients often feel the Reiki Practitioner's hands places they are not. The theory is that it is the hands of Spirit Guides and/or Angels we call upon to assist us during the treatments. I've had clients open their eyes to see where I am because the sensation of the hands on their body feels very apparent. The sensation is not unsettling, but rather soothing, loving and comforting.
Reiki also helps with injury and pain relief by traveling to the point of pain and dissipating the accumulation of energy. Often the client will feel the pain more intensely when its been "awakened," but soon feel relief once the stuck energy is releasing.
Reiki has also been known to help with stress relief. We live in a society where we can feel bombarded by the stresses of our jobs, our home life and even those around us. We hold onto this stress and carry it around with us like a weight on our shoulders all day, every day. The beautiful thing about Reiki is that it can help relieve this stress by allowing the body to relax into a deep state and releasing from our conscious and unconscious energy what simply does not serve us purpose. It allows us to put our life into perspective and helps us understand that all that stress and those little worries aren't always as "important" as we think they are.
Stress can do damage to our bodies. I believe it is the root cause of many illnesses and dis-ease. It can even interfere with our cortisol and hormone levels, and affect our bodies ability to conceive. I've treated six clients who were dealing with infertility issues. After receiving continual Reiki Sessions (about four sessions), they were able to conceive after releasing their stress and balancing their hormones. It's pretty amazing!

There are so many wonderful things to be said about Reiki Energy Healing.
A lot of times a Reiki Practitioner isn't even aware of what's happening "behind the scenes". We just hold space for our clients, visualize loving and healing light, send positive intentions for the person, and allow the Universal Life Force Energy to do its magic.
"A healer does not heal you. A healer is someone who holds space
for you while you awaken your inner healer, so you may heal yourself."
