How Do Distance Sessions Work?

Distance Reiki sessions are a wonderful way to calm anxiety, receive healing, and strenghten your immune system all from the comfort of your home!

They are offered in two ways, both with equal healing effects:

1). We send you Distance Reiki at the scheduled time while you're at work, out and about, shopping, etc.  We will then email you a summary of the session.

OR

2). You receive a link to soothing music to play in the background during your session.  We call you at the scheduled time to touch base and discuss your healing goals.  We offer a guided meditation to prepare you for the session, then we disconnect the line and start the session (we use a surrogate teddy bear for the treatment - it works the same as if it was your body).  You simply relax and enjoy the energy you are receiving! :)  Afterward, we email you a summary of the session.

You may book a Distance Session by selecting the "Distance Session" checkbox in the online booking form.  You may specify in the "notes" section if you'd prefer option #1 or #2.  You will receive a link to make payment prior to the session.

Medically-speaking, how does Reiki help?

In the simplest terms, Reiki induces a parasympathetic nervous system response.

With our busy lifestyle, we tend to stay in reactive sympathetic nervous system mode (i.e. Fight or Flight) which does not allow the body to heal.  When the parasympathetic nervous system is turned on, our bodies naturally go into a "Rest & Restore" state.  This means the body's priority is to recover, to heal, to deeply nourish and restore itself.

Reiki creates a healing environment for the body, which induces a parasympathetic nervous system response, allowing the body to heal itself.

What can I expect during a session?

Lay fully-clothed (minus shoes) on a massage table while hands are placed gently on or slightly above the body in various ethical positions, starting at the head and ending on the feet, to bring forth healing. You may feel warmth, tingling, or a sensation of light, or you may simply relax and fall asleep. Afterward, you will feel fully relaxed, re-centered, pain-free, with a positive outlook and sense of well-being. 

Is Reiki a religious practice?

No, some religions practice "hands-on healing" which is similar to Reiki, but Reiki is a spiritual practice and not associated with any religion.
