Energize

This page will be updated with my new offerings. Come back soon!

Reiki was first introduced over 100 years ago by Dr. Mikao Usui, and is now a widely practiced Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction. The practitioner acts as a channel for the Reiki and transfers the energy through the hands, either in person or from a distance. There are many benefits that may occur after receiving Reiki including (but not limited to) deep relaxation, increased vitality, stress reduction, stronger immune response, better sleep, and a sense of overall well-being. As a certified practitioner, I offer Reiki services, both in-person and online, in an effort to share the experience with anyone who is feeling called to the practice.

Below you will find information for two offerings: Reiki+ and traditional Reiki. Select BOOK from the navigation pane to schedule your session!

– Reiki+ –

Reiki+ is a personalized wellness package that incorporates two of my most beloved practices: Reiki and Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation technique and the practice of conscious rest, where we journey through the states of being awake and asleep. You can find a detailed description by clicking here.

Because there are a variety of Yoga Nidra techniques, a 1-1 phone consultation is required within a few days of your session. This will ensure that we can collaborate on finding the right meditation for you.

How does it work?

  1. After booking your appointment, I will send you an email with a link to my waiver and intake form, along with my availability for a phone consultation.
  2. Once the phone consultation is completed, I will prepare the Yoga Nidra meditation and arrive on the day of your appointment with the appropriate guide.
  3. (Virtual Only) 24 hours before your session, you will receive a link to our private meeting.

During Your Session

We’ll begin a virtual session by inviting you to come into a space where you can lay comfortably for the duration of your session. Upon arrival to an in-person session, you will begin to get comfortable on the massage table (you do not remove any clothing).

I will begin reading your meditation, allowing you time to ground and center, with plenty of quiet space to breathe and relax. After the meditation ends (20-30 minutes), I will offer your Reiki, whether in-person or online. This will be a period of silence, as I will be working to channel the Reiki energy to you.

After your session is over, we will have a few minutes to talk about your experience and answer any questions you may have.

– Traditional Reiki –

Unlike Reiki+, traditional Reiki appointments can be scheduled based on any availability on my calendar. This is an in-person offering, only. Traditional Reiki follows a similar process for appointment preparation, however we do not need a phone consultation beforehand, unless you would like one. Please see, “How Does it Work?” above. Traditional Reiki is offered in 30 minute and 60 minute sessions.

During Your Session

Upon arrival, you will begin to get comfortable on the massage table (you do not remove any clothing). I will introduce a brief grounding exercise, then begin channeling the Reiki through hands-on or hands-off methods (your preference).

After your session is over, we will have a few minutes to talk about your experience and answer any questions you may have.

What Else Do I Need to Know?

Before an online Reiki+ session, find a comfortable space where you can lay down for the duration of your session. This could be on your bed, a couch, on the floor, etc. If it feels right, cover yourself with a blanket and put a pillow behind your head and under your knees.

If you enjoy soft music, we will play it during your in-person session. Feel free to play your own music during any virtual sessions.

Feel free to move as much as you need to! Your comfort is important and stillness is certainly not a requirement. You can roll to your side, on your stomach, etc.
