Reiki Healing

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It was discovered by Dr. Usui in the early 1900’s. Reiki is administered by “lying on hands”. The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words – Rei and Ki. Reiki can be defined as spiritually guided life energy.

A Reiki session feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around the client. The client lays on a massage table fully clothed. A standard session involves placing the hands on or over the head, torso, knees, and feet. Sessions last from 50 minutes to 1 ½ hours.

Can Reiki be Done at a Distance?

Yes. Reiki, like prayer, works at a distance very well. Sara will work with you similarly to an in person Reiki session. She will set up an appointment with you during which time you will relax. At the beginning of the session, Sara will call you to check in on what you would like to have worked on. Then she will connect with you energetically from a distance and through using Byosen Scanning determine where you body needs Reiki. After giving Reiki for an hour or longer depending on the scheduled session length, Sara will call you to see what you felt and share what she found and where she treated.

How Does Reiki Heal and Balance Chakras?

We are alive because life energy or Ki is flowing through us. Ki flows with the physical body through pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field called the aura. The free and balanced flow of Ki is the cause of health. When the flow is disrupted, it causes diminished functioning within one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body. Therefore, it is the disruption in the flow of Ki that is the main cause of illness. By flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy, Reiki raises the vibratory level in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. When a block is released and Ki is flowing naturally, the physical organs and tissues are then able to complete their healing process. Reiki is a wonderful, relaxing and effective way to balance your chakras. Yes, we can combine Yoga and Reiki as well.

My whole life I have needed healing from my past experiences. I wanted to become a whole and healthy. To achieve this positive state of existence requires a change in the mind, body, and soul. After two weeks at Yoga Home of Therapeutics I have acquired a positive change in my thought processes, my physical body and my relationships with others. The healing process came through a combination of therapy, which I hate, and yoga which I love. This has allowed my mind to become open to the positive aspects of life. I finally have found a community of caring and genuine individuals. My deepest gratitude to Sara Alavi.
