Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s. The term is derived from the Japanese words rei, meaning “universal,” and ki, which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. As a reiki practitioner I work with energy, intention, and touch, intending and sending light, love, and healing where it is needed in a person’s, or an animal’s, or Earth’s body.
I continue to be convinced that unless we take full responsibility for our spiritual development by facing our fears, healing our wounds, and clearing up the divisive thoughts and beliefs we hold within, we will continue to add to the fragmentation in the world. Reiki is an effective tool in helping us heal, and generally supporting our overall well-being.
I am trained in Contemporary Reiki from William Rand. This style of training has its roots in, honors and employs Traditional Reiki techniques and symbols developed and taught by Dr. Usui. Contemporary Reiki may also incorporate additional natural healing remedies; like the use of breathwork, crystals and stones, aura work, sound and color therapy as well as other energy techniques.
Generally, Reiki sessions, which include an information session at the beginning and check-in at the end, are about an hour long.
