Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stressed, and if it is high, we have the capacity to build a happy and healthy life. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words: Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". Reiki therefore translates into "spiritually guided life force energy." A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats a person as a whole, including body, emotions, mind, and spirit, resulting in numerous beneficial effects from feelings of relaxation to peace, security, and well being. Reiki is a simple, natural, and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement and virtually anyone can benefit from. It provides effective support for any illness and malady. It also works in conjunction with any other medical treatment or therapeutic technique to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything." - Lao Tzu

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A REIKI HEALING SESSION
During a Reiki session, you as a client lie down on a massage table, fully clothed. My hands are placed lightly on or just above your body, palms down. I start at your head and work myself around your body using a series of different hand positions. Each position is held for about 2 to 5 minutes, or until I feel that the flow of energy (experienced as sensations such as heat or tingling in the hands) has slowed or stopped. Likely you will fall in and out of sleep.
Each session takes about 60 minutes at a charge of CAD $90.00. I accept cheques, etransfers, and cash. Every time you recommend a new client, you get CAD $15.00 off your next session (don't forget to ask me about the coupon code). I have a treatment room available in Coquitlam on Austin Avenue. Map
After each session, please drink lots of water, so toxins can be flushed out of your body. Make sure you have a relaxed time after the session, so your body has time to process the healing.
