Reiki and Massage

Are you familiar with the Japanese healing art of Reiki? Rei meaning spiritual and Ki translating to energy. 

This beautiful healing modality, which is normally a hands off treatment will increase and free the unbalanced energy flow in the body. Combine this with a massage and you will understand how you can feel calm yet invigorated at the same time. This seeming dichotomy of emotions allows you this feeling of well being because a massage loosens muscles, increases oxygen and blood flow throughout the body, and Reiki encourages the free flow of the body’s own energies.

While massage is one of the oldest forms of medical treatment, first recorded in China more than 2,000 years ago, Reiki is a recent practice, developed in 1922 by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist. He wanted to give others the benefit of his spiritual journey so he developed this healing treatment and passed his training on to a generation of about 16 Reiki Masters, who continued to practice and teach it to others as Usui Reiki.

I have been massaging now for over 15 years and I have been using Reiki in my treatments for over 10 years in a very subtle way, and not always mentioning that I am doing this. Often clients who are familiar with Reiki will pick it up and ask did you just do some Reiki? Or they will say they feel so much calmer at the completion of the treatment. I have decided to include Reiki into my treatments as an advertised service, so that those wishing to specifically book this can do so. Reiki will assist in working on a different level than just physical, thus facilitating a deeper healing and sometimes a much needed energy release. Feel free to discuss any stress or issues in which you would like to let go of  that may be on your mind and stopping you from moving forward.
