What is Reiki?
Reiki is a technique used 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 "the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows 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 well-being.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

What is Distant Reiki?
Distant Reiki works the same as an in-person Reiki session except that the person receiving Reiki is not in the same room. In Distant Reiki, it is the practitioner’s focus and intent to send the energy to the client, and that person’s willingness to receive it, that makes it work.
The effects of Distant Reiki are just as profound as those experienced in an in-person session.
How does a Distant Reiki session work?
At the beginning of the session, I will contact you to discuss any specific needs you might have and to answer any questions. You should be sitting or lying down in a quiet comfortable place, so as not to be disturbed for the length of the session.
During the session, Reiki energy will directed to similar positions on the body that are treated during an in-person session.
Each client will have their own unique experience. Clients may feel a tingling sensation, physical temperature changes, perceive visual images, colors and/or enter a deep sleep.
At the end of the session, I will follow-up with you to discuss your experience and answer any questions you might have.
What will I experience after my Reiki session?
Clients may experience hunger, fatigue, high energy and/or strong emotions after their Reiki session. It is recommended to drink plenty of water after a Reiki treatment.
