Reiki in the Green Room
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also 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 stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
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”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
Reiki is very simply performed. After an initial consultation:
You lie on your back on a comfortable treatment couch with a cushion under your knees, a pillow for your head and a soft blanket is provided for you comfort.
The practitioner places their hands upon or slightly above the person to be healed with the intent for healing to occur, and the energy begins flowing.

Afterwards we discuss what happened during the treatment over a relaxing cup of tea, recommendations for follow up action by the client may be given. For example, what essential oils might be beneficial, or how to choose a healing crystal to wear or carry on your person.
