FAQS

What is Reiki? 

Reiki is defined as, “a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.” 

What takes place during a “Distance Reiki Session”?

I begin all distance Reiki sessions with a phone call. During the phone call I will ask you questions regarding goals for the session and how are you feeling. Then I instruct clients to find a comfortable place to sit or lie down while I heal them remotely. I do not recommend doing strenuous activities while Reiki is being transferred remotely. At the end of the session I will call you back and get your impressions of the session and how you are feeling. 


How will I feel during/after a Reiki session? 

Many people report feeling relaxed during sessions and after sessions. Others report sensations of heat, coolness or tingling in various parts of the body. 


Can I use Reiki and still follow my doctors’ orders/ recommendations? 

Absolutely! Reiki treatment does not interfere with medical treatments.

However, the techniques used are considered alternative, holistic or natural medicine. I do not diagnose, treat or prescribe medication for ailments, illnesses or diseases that are physical or psychological. Please seek advice from a licensed medical professional for these concerns. These practices are meant to be complementary to your current healthcare. 


Can I get Reiki if I’m pregnant? 

Absolutely! Many mothers to be find Reiki to be very healing and supportive. 


Is Reiki safe for children? 

Absolutely! Reiki is not only safe for children, but beneficial as well. 

Reiki is a simple, gentle, hands-on energy technique that is used for stress reduction and relaxation. Reiki practitioners do not diagnose conditions nor do they prescribe or perform medical treatment, prescribe substances, nor interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional. Reiki does not take the place of medical care. Sometimes multiple sessions are needed in order to facilitate the level of relaxation needed by the body to heal itself. 


Yoga is not recommended and is not safe under certain medical conditions.
