What is energy healing?
Our bodies appear solid, but in truth they are a collection of molecules made up of energy. Everything you see in this physical world is made up of energy and vibrates at a particular frequency. Every single substance in the physical world is made up of the same thing—life force energy.
It is important to understand that there are no true boundaries between objects. It only appears this way due to the arrangement of molecules in a particular form. Some are packed very tightly giving the appearance of solidity, and others are arranged loosely as in the form of gasses, particularly air, which seems like empty space though it is not.
Just by being in the presence of a certain vibration, our own vibration is affected. The strongest vibration in an area will cause the other surrounding vibrations to resonate at the same level. Quartz crystal is a substance that has a powerful frequency to attune the human body (as well as many other things around us, hence its widespread use, from timepieces all the way up their part in rocket launchings at NASA), as it takes about 100-125 million years of pressure to form in the earth. That is a ton of latent energy.
Energy healing is the transfer of healing life force energy from the universe, through one person and into another through touch or simply intention. This energy aids in healing the soul body, emotional body, and the physical body, resulting in harmony between the three aspects and raising the body’s vibration. This is what is meant by the term holistic healing. There are many forms of energy healing, Reiki is one of them.
Every person has the capability to heal with touch. Think of infants who respond and thrive with physical contact, hugs, and loving touch. Think of how a hug or touch can transform your feelings and heal your heart. Reiki is a form of energy healing in which the practitioner receives levels of attunements which open the natural channels of healing to greater degrees.
What Happens in a Reiki Treatment?
The client generally lays on the treatment table, fully clothed, as the practitioner moves around the client’s body, laying hands on or just above their body and transferring life force energy to the places in the body, mind, and soul that need infusing. Crystals may also be added for a more powerful effect.
The effects are relaxing and uplifting, but it is also possible to have strong emotions arise during or after the treatment. When this happens it is important to allow them to flow up and out of you so that they can be released. Each client has their own individual needs, and it is my pleasure to work with you to ensure that you feel comfortable at all times. Some people, due to past experiences, do not like to be touched at all—this is entirely possible to accommodate and still achieve optimal results.
Most people leave a reiki session feeling light and elevated, very relaxed. It is different for everyone. Sometimes symptoms will be alleviated immediately, and other times several sessions may be required to reach more deeply rooted issues.
