Are you curious about Reiki?

Do you want to learn more about Reiki?

Are you interested in experiencing Reiki?

I’m excited to announce that I am now offering Reiki in Cortland! If you live in Central New York or the Finger Lakes region and would like to explore (or continue) a Reiki practice, please complete an Inquiry Form to express your interest or book an appointment now.

If you are not familiar with Reiki, think of it as “a Japanese technique for relaxation that also promotes healing.”  Reiki is often experienced as a hands-on treatment where “a warm and soothing energy flows from the hands into the client, promoting relaxation and releasing tension.”

Reiki can have powerful and healing effects on the human energy field (aura) and the chakras.

What can I expect?

In a safe, nonjudgmental environment, a typical full Reiki session may include the following elements, but practitioners do take varied approaches, so your experience may be different.

  • An intake by the practitioner (if you are a new client, you may be asked to complete an intake form, so arrive a few minutes early).
  • A sharing of what you might expect and a time for you to share with your practitioner any pain, medical, or health issue you may be experiencing.
  • A brief relaxation or meditation exercise.
  • Lying on a Reiki or massage table, fully clothed (speak up if you are comfortable). Reiki may also be done with a client seated in a chair.
  • Your Reiki practitioner may do a scan of your body to sense any energy imbalances, he/she may also use crystals or a pendulum during the practice.
  • Aromatherapy may also be a part of your experience. If you are sensitive to fragrances, let your practitioner know before your appointment.
  • Some practitioners will lay their hands lightly on your body (appropriately), others may work with just your human energy field/aura (let your Reiki practitioner know if you are sensitive to any particular touch, for example some people are not comfortable with having their feet touched).
  • You may (or may not) experience physical or emotional sensations or reactions.
  • Soft music may accompany the treatment.
  • After your treatment, you will be allowed to bring yourself back into full awareness slowly
  • Expect to share your experience with your practitioner, noting any sensations, visualizations, messages, clarity, physical recovery (it may also be that you don’t experience anything other than relaxation – and that’s perfectly okay!)
  • Reiki sessions may vary in length of time; be sure to know ahead of time so you can plan accordingly (you may wish to allow some time after your treatment for quiet reflection).
  • You may be asked to submit payment when you book your session, or pay upon arrival or at the completion of your session – know how your practitioner prefers to be paid and be prepared (it’s okay to ask).
