What is Reiki?


Reiki is an energy healing modality, which brings in feeling of lightness and peace to the body, mind and Spirit. It is a Japanese healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing physically, emotionally and spiritually. Reiki can be sent from a distance and be just as strong as in person, in fact it has been scientifically measured and proven to work across continents. Reiki is based on the idea that universal life energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s universal life force 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.


Is Reiki against my religion?

Not at all. Reiki is not a religion, nor is there any deity or dogma attached to it. It is Universal Life Force Energy and works for all creeds, races, religions, etc.



Do I need to do anything prior to my session?

There is nothing official that you have to do before a Reiki session. Some people like to be as clear as possible before their session and will refrain from drugs and alcohol that day, in order to take in as much healing energy as possible. Others will meditate or mantra before their session…but nothing is needed from you in order for the Reiki energy to work. That being said…the more clear and open you are…the deeper the healing will go, so I suggest no drugs or alcohol before or after your session, unless they are prescribed by a doctor.


Do I need to do anything after my session?

I would suggest allowing yourself the rest of the day to do something non-stressful and good for you, such as writing, hiking in Nature or just plain relaxing and/or napping as the Reiki energy will be processing inside of you for the whole day after you leave.

To get the best benefit of your healing, allow yourself to rest after, and not return to a busy hectic schedule right after. After Reiki…meditations, writing, self-healing and intention writing are all supported and go a bit deeper. Take advantage of the boost of Life Force!


What will Reiki feel like?

People have reported feeling tingles, electricity, bursts of energy, feeling as if they are releasing worries, anxieties and anger, mild dizziness, clients having bursts of laughter and/or crying has also happened. Some people feel so at peace that they just drift off to sleep. All of these are very normal and healing for Reiki, as it works on your emotions, and causes hidden unexpressed emotions to release themselves, making more room for you to bring in new and good energy and emotions.


Will Reiki still work if I fall asleep?

Definitely. In fact…it may even work better if you are asleep because your mind will be “off” and the energy will be allowed to go deeper within you to help with things on the subconscious level.

Reiki works wonders whether you are awake or asleep.

What is an Online Reiki session

at The Healing Woods like?

It will begin with an intake conversation on Zoom or on FaceTime, in which it will be just like we are in the room together...face to face. I will ask you what you would like to work on, and get a bit of history on what is ailing or bothering you at the moment.

We will then get off of Zoom, so you can go lay down in your bed, feeling completely safe and secure. You may put on relaxing music, light candles or even incense if you would like. You can do anything on your side to create a relaxing environment to receive the Reiki in.

I will be busy working on a Reiki Crystal Grid for you where I will infuse all of the crystals with Reiki, and light candles for your intentions and send Reiki to the grid, which will transfer it to you.

I will text you a picture of the Reiki Crystal Grid I created for you, so you can take a look at it to connect to it as well, and then put your phone down, close your eyes and receive the beautiful energy.

Crystals are amazing conductors, and the whole world is connected by an energetic grid, so the Reiki will easily find its way to you laying comfortably in your bed.

Towards the end of our time together, I will text you again and leave you an in depth report of anything I felt, saw or was guided to do to help you energetically. Sometimes I am given homework for you to do as well...all of this will be reported back to you.

Countless clients remark on how light they feel right after a session and how amazing it is to feel like I am right there with them, even if we are half way across the world physically!
