Yes. Unlike a massage therapy session, you will be fully clothed and you will want to wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing.
At your option. Reiki may be done with a light gentle pressure static touch or the Practitioner’s hands may be a few centimetres above your body at the hand positions with no actual touch. We use standard hand placements beginning at your head or feet, avoiding all sensitive body parts. Let your Practitioner know before the session which you prefer, light touch or no touch.
Sound Healing will require bowls to be placed on and around your body. Biorgonomy is fully contact-less modality.
Reiki is a beneficial healing modality that is very popular and utilized for health and wellness. It is based on energetic principles and is practiced in many hospitals, medical settings, and in private practices all around the world.
Not just anyone can call themselves a Reiki Healer. Professional Reiki Healers must complete a series of courses, beginning with Reiki Level 1, often continuing through Reiki Level 2, then onto the Reiki Master Course and practicum. Some Reiki Healers choose to continue their education to become Reiki Master Teachers, where they can empower others with healing through Reiki. Taking an online / distance course does not make you a Reiki Healer. You cannot become a Reiki Healer through online or distance classes.
A session is generally one hour, but 30-minute sessions may be available in some cases. Please visit our Book Online page for full details.
Reiki and Sound Healings are usually performed on a client who is fully reclined comfortably on a massage table. It also may be performed on a client who is semi-reclined on a massage chair or recliner. If you have mobility or pain issues please communicate these to your Practitioner so they may make you your most comfortable for the session.
Well, some practitioners lean in that direction. I mean, when you think about healing, about energy transference, about tapping into peoples’ emotions and feelings, I get that it can be quite evocative of religious experience, or a spiritual experience. But I try to stay away from that, because religion is so personal and so individual, that to try to turn it into that is too difficult and honestly, it just turns a lot of people off.
What I’m attracted to is the more scientific side of Reiki and I feel like if people could see it that way first, they would be more open to it as a whole.
Reiki’s origin is Japanese, and the energy is called “ki” in Japanese. Even so, some Reiki practitioners use the Chinese ‘Chi’ energy meridians in their practice. For example, if someone’s right knee is bothering them and you looked at a chart of Chinese meridians, you might find the energy origin of the problem is really in the left shoulder.
Many ancient cultures, including the Japanese, Chinese, Indians, and Egyptians, embraced the belief that life energy flowed through the body deeply affecting our bodies, minds, and emotions. Current research strongly suggests that energy does extend throughout and beyond the physical body and that disruptions or imbalances in its flow correlate to physical, mental and emotional illnesses. The healing art of Reiki addresses these imbalances to support your good health and well-being.
