What is Reiki?

(Pronounced “Ray-key”)

All living things are made up of energy. At times in life our energy flows freely through us bringing health and vitality. At other times, our energy may be flowing slowly or “pooled” in an area. When your life energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress; you may not sleep well, and you are susceptible to illness. Life can bring stress and with that stress may come emotional, physical, or energetic challenges. During these challenges our bodies may need help to balance and adjust to the flow of our life force energy.

Reiki is a systematic technique that increases a person’s supply of life energy. 

In simple terms, we are kind of like batteries and may need a “jumpstart” or to “get plugged in”. Our bodies are wonderful and magnificent vessels that are incredibly intelligent. We know how to heal. Reiki can help “jumpstart” our bodies natural healing abilities. Another good analogy is that our energy is like a highway that sometimes flows freely and at other times gets a “traffic jam”.

Reiki is a holistic healing practice that promotes balance in body, mind, and spirit through self-treatment and treatment of others.

Reiki supports the body’s own natural healing abilities and is a wonderful daily self-care practice.  Once learned, you can offer Reiki to yourself anytime, anywhere.

Reiki benefits include relaxation, stress reduction, pain relief, improved sleep patterns and mental clarity.

Reiki has its origins in Japan of the early twentieth century and our founder is Mikao Usui.

Reiki is safe, gentle, and non-invasive. The receiver connects with Reiki energy through the practitioner’s hands which can be held over or placed lightly on the physical body.

Reiki is safe for all ages and can be used to complement or enhance the effectiveness of conventional medical treatment. Reiki is not a substitute for medical treatment.

Reiki can be easily learned by anyone of any age. Reiki is practiced by people of many faiths and cultures throughout the world.

What is a session like?

Reiki is administered through the hands of a trained Reiki practitioner with the client lying fully clothed on a massage table. Session usually last anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half.  The Reiki practitioner places his or her hands at locations around the head and shoulders, the abdomen and on the legs and feet. Tissue is not manipulated. The practitioners hands are simply held at each location, lightly touching or slightly away from the body. Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands and into the clients body and energy field. A Reiki session may surround and fill the client with wonderful glowing radiance that includes feelings of relaxation, peace, and well-being that promotes healing. The main goals of Reiki are deep relaxation and stress reduction.

BEMER Treatment

BEMER stands for Bio-Electro-Magnetic-Energy-Regulation. BEMER uses PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field) to deliver specific pulsed therapy that increases circulation in the body’s smallest blood vessels, which make up about 75% of our circulatory system. Increased circulation to the cells helps oxygen and nutrients be delivered to the cells more readily, and for the enhanced disposal of cellular waste. This allows for quicker healing and recovery, and optimized function of the body.

For over 20 years BEMER has been used in over 4,000 hospitals/clinics in Europe – the technology is now in joint development with NASA for future space suits. BEMER was developed in Germany and has over 50 journal publications showing benefits.

BEMER is easy and painless to use and you can often see results in just a few sessions. However, everyone is unique so results may vary from person to person. There are no negative side effects.

Julie creates an environment of serenity before beginning your treatment.  Her ability to help you release energy blocks is phenomenal.  The difference I felt before and after was tremendous.  I highly recommend you give yourself the gift of allowing Julie to help you release what doesn’t serve your best self.  -Nickki 2020

Julie was awesome. She is really good. A very nice person. I highly recommend her Reiki session. -Marifrance 2019

Very warm and personable. I look forward to another session. -Jackie 2020

As a newbie to reiki, I was unsure what to expect. However, Julie was recommended by a close friend and I thought it was worth trying. I am SO glad I gave it a chance. 2020 hasn’t been the easiest year, and I’ve been feeling like I’m carrying a heavy weight around with me. By the end of the session I felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders and I was relaxed. Yes, relaxed. I went back for another session and will continue to work with Julie. She is a gem with a warm heart that puts you at ease immediately. I highly recommend going in for a session! -Samantha 2020
