What is Reiki
Reiki is a Japanese technique that promotes healing, stress reduction, and relaxation. It is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us.
The word Reiki is comprised of two Japanese words, the word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”.
Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy.
What Should I Expect?
How long is a typical session?
30-90 minutes. Most common is 60 min.
Do I have to take my clothes off?
No, you remain fully dressed. I recommend removing shoes, jewelry, and items from pockets.
What happens during a session?
Reiki is like a massage for the soul. Many people enter a deep state of relaxation or even fall asleep. Some people also see colors or images, like a watercolor painting. It is also possible to experience some repressed emotions. It is okay to cry. This is a safe space in which to lay down your burdens, and doing so will encourage the healing process.
Do you make physical contact?
My hands either hover just above your body or gently rest on you. There is no physical manipulation.
Will I feel anything?
The most common things to feel are warmth, tingling, or pressure around the area being treated. Some clients also experience “phantom hands” in which there is a sensation in an area not currently being treated, such as feeling tingling in your shoulders when I’m working on your feet.
Reiki Master Michelle Moskauski was very sick in her early teen years. No doctors were able to figure out what was wrong with her. Her entire body was in pain, and it was a chiropractor who introduced her to Reiki. After a few treatments, she was pain-free and a true believer.
In July 2018 she felt her calling to help others as she had been helped. With that resolve, she set out to find a teacher and began her training five days later. She completed her Reiki Master Teacher certification in December 2018, received her Masters of Spiritual Science in June 2021, and is currently studying for her Doctorate of Spiritual Science through Peace Theological Seminary & College of Philosophy. Michelle is also a Certified HeartMath Practitioner, an Access Consciousness Bars Practitioner, and is a member of the International Association of Reiki Professionals.
