What is Reiki?
Developed in Japan in 1921 by Mikao Usui and brought to the United States in 1938, Reiki is a light touch healing technique which gently facilitates each persons own ability to find and maintain balance in body, mind and spirit. Every aspect of your life may be enhanced, whether you want to maintain a healthy state of wellness or you are facing the physical and emotional challenges of a life-altering disease. The technique is based on the belief that there is an energetic flow in and through all living things. When this energy is low or blocked, we are more likely to get sick and feel stressed. The Chinese intention of moving chi to bring harmony into the body is also the foundation for the proven modalities of acupuncture, acupressure, tai chi, and qi gong. A Reiki session restores this flow of energy, naturally helping the body’s own innate ability to rediscover wellness.
Offered by Reiki Practitioner Lisa Purdy ND, MH
Your reiki session will be held in a quiet and comfortable setting, in a private room. While lying fully-clothed on a padded massage table, the client’s experience is enhanced by soft music, aromatherapy, and low lighting. With a light touch, usually no more than the weight of a nickel, the practitioner may gently place her hands on various locations on the client’s body. Often the practitioner’s hands are a few inches above the client, assessing the energy field surrounding the body. There is no rubbing, massaging, or pressure, only the offer of a transfer of energy. It’s not uncommon for warmth, tingling, and/or movement to be experienced during a session as the client draws what is needed. An immediate positive response by clients is almost always expressed. A decrease or elimination of pain is common. Individuals who were previously feeling anxious or stressed often report a high level of relaxation and sense of well-being. In fact, many clients fall asleep during a treatment! While many benefits are immediately evident, the positive shifts in your rebalanced body may be experienced for days or even weeks afterwards.
