Reiki by Caitlin Douglas
What is Reiki?
Reiki is an energy healing technique that induces a restorative and meditative state to allow the body to heal and repair itself. The practitioner is a channel for the energy, allowing the patient to realign to the higher self and higher guidance system. Our bodies have all the tools they need to heal themselves, however in today's over stimulated era it is sometimes hard to listen to these signs and signals our body is giving us. By entering this total relaxation and mediation mode, the stimulation is taken away and it gives our bodies the time we need to listen to what it is trying to tell us or what it wants to heal.
Who is a candidate for Reiki Treatment?
Anyone and everyone would be able to benefit from Reiki. Since it is a gentle hands off healing there are no prerequisites or parameters the patients must fit in.
What can I expect post Reiki Treatment?
The patient should feel deeply relaxed and connected and may even sleep very well post session. There may be thoughts that come up or memories for the patient and these can be discussed further. These universal guidance signals and signs accumulated during a session are subtle. After Reiki Treatment the patient is encouraged to sit with the energy and fully explore any inspirations or blocks that draw their attention including dreams or visions that may enter their psyche.
How often should I get Reiki?
The more the merrier! There is no such thing as too much healing. We recommend at least 3 sessions to help fully get the energy flowing through the patient. The second and third treatments are often where we see the most movement of stagnant energy. This can be attributed to patients hesitating to fully relax or release control during the first session or the ego trying to hold on to those blocks as long as it can.
What is Crystal Healing?
Since Crystals have been made by mother earth they hold sacred powerful energies that enhance these healings. Each stone has different energy and can conduct a certain frequency. Some of the stones used in our sessions are:
Citrine - success, processing emotions, abundance
Selenite - Clearing the Aura
Quartz- the mother healer
Copper- to conduct energy and enhance the quartz
Rose Quartz - for love and self love particularly
Amethyst - for protection and work related stress
What is a sound bath and healing bowl?
The sound bath is a very high frequency sound made by the pure rose quartz sound bowl. This sound fills the entire room with a vibration of love allowing the patient to let go and release.
