Frequently Asked Questions.
Here are some common questions.
What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

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”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Who benefits from Reiki?
Reiki can be used successfully with all ages. Many expecting moms receive Reiki sessions while pregnant. This is soothing for the expecting mom and the growing baby. Babies and children can benefit from Reiki and usually drift to sleep during sessions. Reiki can be great for aging love ones as a part of a wellness plan and at end of life care.
What is a Reiki session like?
Reiki sessions are very relaxing and comforting. After going over your intake form, you will be asked to lay fully clothed on a massage table or seated in a chair. You will be covered with a blanket and gentle music will be playing in the background to help you leave your concerns outside.  I do not talk during a Reiki session unless you purchased a guided meditation. Many people dose off into a light sleep during the session. Some people feel different sensations such as heat, tingly movements, waves, heaviness or lightness. Some people see colors & pictures or even have a thought from a long time ago. A Reiki session varies so much because it is personalized just for you. Since it is a loving energy source it is always working for you for your highest good.
What is Acupressure?
Acupressure balances the body’s energy by applying pressure to specific points along energy channels. The term “pressure” is misleading, since acupressure actually uses a very light touch. A practitioner uses their fingertips to make contact with the body. By holding points in a specific sequence, energy can be increased where it is lacking or dispersed where it is overabundant.

I will employ a variety of hand techniques that work on certain acupressure points. I will only touch you with myy hands and fingers. I will apply pressure ranging from gentle to firm, tap on certain places, or simply hold onto an area. During these treatments, you may experience a sensation of energy flowing from my hands into your body.

What is Crystal Therapy?
Crystal healing uses the natural minerals of the earth. Each crystal has a unique ‘life force’ or energy and a
unique colour and vibration. I will either create a crystal grid or lay crystals on you while you are fully clothed.  I will use your intake form to determine which crystals to use.
What is Chakra Balancing?
Each chakra is like a Spinning Disk of Energy. When our Energy is out of balance one or more of the chakras are spinning too slow or too fast. Sometimes a Chakra will even stop spinning, which means you have a blockage. I will lay my 7 hakra stones approximately at each of your chakra points while you are fully chothed.
What are guided meditations?
Guided Meditations uses symbols and visualizations to to assist you in relaxing and letting go during your session.
