Decompress and de-stress with this soothing Japanese healing technique that channels positive energy into your body and mind through the utilization of gentle touch.
Outer Calm, Inner Peace
Reiki enhances your overall well-being by assisting in the reduction of stress, anxiety, and depression, as well as chronic pain. This calming methodology can help in addiction recovery by bringing energy balance into the body, de-stressing the mind and spirit, and providing a greater sense of control. Often, it can make you feel more centered and capable of meeting the challenges and demands of life more effectively.
This non-invasive technique, used in conjunction with other healing therapies, allows you to become the observer, rather than the participant, in your trauma. This can help one to more clearly understand past behaviors or unresolved issues without being blocked by fear.
Embracing the Experience
A reiki session can last between 20 and 60 minutes. Your practitioner will first chat about the process and your expectations. This is a good time to tell your reiki therapist about any injuries or body areas that are touch-sensitive. You will then lie down under a soft blanket, with relaxing music playing in the background. Your practitioner will quietly move his or her hands around your body, either touching you lightly or placing their hands just above you. During the session, you may experience gentle heat or tingling in your body or perhaps even see mild visualizations. Just let these brief sensations pass without overanalyzing them, and keep yourself within the moment.
