Getting down to basics: What a session at Reiki Goddess is like.
Comfort, Confidentiality, Compassion We value your comfort. We maintain your confidentiality. Next, we assure that you're comfortable by providing light touch and gentle pressure from head to toe, working with the chakra system and the universal life force energy, so that you may rest and allow your body precious time to heal. Tension and stress literally melt away as your energy increases and a sense of well-being floods through you. Many of our clients find sessions to be a great way to deal with stress, change, grief, loss and anxiety. Hundreds of Satisifed Clients We've worked with hundreds of satisfied clients who report individual and unique experiences that are all their own. Some sleep deeply, while others rest in the space somewhere between sleep and alertness. During a session, some clients dream, see colors, while others become aware of issues that they wish to address in future. Some clients laugh, others cry, while others just rest without seeing colors, visions or feeling any particular range of emotions.
Reiki is a Japanese hands-on energy healing technique for stress reduction, balance, relaxation and rejuvenation. It's an ideal way to de-stress and revitalize for busy workers, employees craving balance and anyone looking for a way to manage stress during the recession and through the changing seasons. With ties to the ancient "hands-on healing" methods renowned for physical and spiritual health, reiki helps reduce stress and tension while improving mental clarity and focus.
How is reiki administered? Reiki is shared by the laying on of hands. It can also be performed by holding the hands over the body. Reiki 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.
Reiki at the right place, the right time. A variety of reasons bring a client to reiki. Some want more peace and help with managing stress. Some just want to rest. Others are pregnant or have just labored. Others are managers, executives, runners, readers, athletes, couch bunnies or just want a chance to take a nap in a safe space. Some are dealing with cancer, disease, addictions, or relationship problems. Some have migraines, headaches, body aches, malaise, low energy, or feel very stressed and overwhelmed. Some are sick, some are sad, some are in great health. Reiki can help anyone, no matter the situation.
How is Reiki performed? The Reiki Master places his or her hands upon the person to be healed with the intent for healing to occur, and then the energy just starts flowing! The Reiki energy is smart since the Universe is a very smart place indeed. The energy knows where to go, and what to do once it gets there, or else is being directed by a higher intelligence. The energy manages its own flow to and within the recipient. It draws through the reiki practitioner exactly that amount of energy which the recipient needs. All this happens without direct conscious intervention by the reiki practitioner. The practitioner's job is to get out of the way, to keep the healing space open, and to watch/listen for signs of what to do next. (http://kouxan.com/reiki.php)

Reiki for animals and plants. Yes. Reiki doesn't just work on people, it can also work on plants and animals. This is just an FYI, as you should probably let us know ahead of time if you're bringing a pet or plant. Those visits are best if we come to your home. :)
