Windsong Wellness and Reiki Healing
What is Reiki?
"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. Many have reported miraculous results."
What to Expect in a Session
Lie down comfortably on the massage table. And relax. I suggest having a knee pillow, neck pillow, blanket and eye cover. Soft music is also an option. If we schedule an appointment in your own home, please make plans to have a quiet space for the session. We may run through a guided meditation to help relax in the beginning.
With your permission I will lay my hands or hover my hands over many different areas of the body. I will hold them there for certain lengths of time. I may feel or sense things as they come intuitively. With your permission I will tell you any information I receive.
Everyone experiences Reiki differently. Even if you do not feel physical tingles or warmth in your body, the energy is still there. You may feel a sense of peace and well being. Reiki heals physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Tools often experienced in a Reiki sesson include: crystals, rattles, flutes, drums, singing bowls and vocals. None of these are required but are there as an option at your request or permission.
I have a pure quartz crystal singing bowl that can be played for about a minute, typically at the start and end of a session.
I own Native American flutes and can play relaxing and sound healing tones as a bonus in the session.
If requested, I can incorporate energy medicine techniques which help align energy meridians in your body. This may involve tapping, holding energy points and tracing lines on your body.
The use of crystals and gems, your own or my crystals. (If they are your own, please make sure they have been cleared & cleansed before the healing session)
If I feel guided to and if you're comfortable with it, towards the end of your session, I may vocalize, chant, or sing.
Native American drums and rattles are traditionally used in shamanic healing practices as ways to "shake off" or "beat off" certain unwanted energies.
