*special note regarding Reiki during COVID-19
In keeping with physical distancing guidelines from the Massaschusetts DPH, I will only be offering distance Reiki sessions via phone call or zoom in 15-minute intervals until further notice.
Reiki is a hands-on energetic healing technique from Japan. Reiki practitioners channel healing energy through their hands to assist the body in lowering stress and increasing energy. Reiki sessions are safe and natural, promoting a sense of well-being and lightness. Sessions work well in conjunction with traditional care and can help reduce uncomfortable side effects and to restore balance to the body.

Q: Why would someone come for Reiki sessions?
A: Reiki is an extremely versatile healing modality that can be used in aiding healing on all levels of the human system. Some clients come to me to aid in healing from physical illness or injury, some from mental and emotional distress, and others for spiritual growth and healing. Empaths, psychics, and energetically sensitive people often seek out energy work like Reiki to help balance their energy systems and strengthen their energy fields to provide them with greater grounding and ease.
Q: What is Reiki like?
A: This is the most common question I get. Most people report a feeling of deep calm and ease while receiving Reiki. It is a very pleasant experience and is individual to every person. No two people have the exact same experience with Reiki.
Q: I had Reiki at the spa once. Do you do spa Reiki?
A: No, I don’t. I do Reiki for deep healing on many levels of the human system. If you want to work with me, know that I don’t do surface level energy work. We dig deeply into root causes of imbalances so that the healing is more lasting. It is very different from simple relaxation.
Q: How often should I come for Reiki?
A: Frequency of your visits depends on many factors. If you are generally healthy, often one visit every few months is more than sufficient for a “tune up.” If you are sick or going through acute periods of stress, bi-weekly or weekly visits are recommended. We can talk about the frequency of your visits when we meet as it is highly individual varies with the changing circumstances of your life.
Q: I’m skeptical about Reiki and how it works? Will a session still benefit me?
A: Yes. Reiki is not a faith-based healing system and does not require belief in its validity to be effective. However, it is a system that is foreign in many ways to our modern sensibilities so I am happy to sit with skeptical clients and explain, in ways that feel more approachable to the modern mind, how Reiki works. I always tell clients who are skeptical of Reiki to come and do a session, see how Reiki works for them, and make conclusions based on their experience.
Q: Do you provide information on what you perceive energetically during a session?
A: Yes, I do. The Reiki field opens a very high vibrational frequency in which I can often see and perceive many aspects of your energetic being. These can include past lives, the archetype of your current incarnation, seeing past loved ones, or getting intuitions on previous physical and medical traumas in your body. I make no promises about what comes through as that is impossible to predict. Also, I do not make predictions about future events or do medical intuitive work.
Q: I am recovering from serious trauma and have PTSD. Can Reiki be helpful?
A: Yes. I see many clients with complex trauma and PTSD. They have reported Reiki has helped them a great deal. Please make sure to mention to me that you are working with these issues in your contact email. My first priority is that you feel safe and at ease in your session and we will work out a plan to address any concerns or specific needs you may have. I do require that you be seeing a therapist while doing trauma recovery work with me and your therapist be aware that you are coming for Reiki sessions.
Q: I don’t like to be touched. Can I still come for Reiki?
A: Absolutely. Reiki can be done hands on or hands hovering. Reiki can also be done remotely without proximity of my hands to the body. All methods are equally effective.
Q: Do you do distance healings for clients?
Q: I have a child who might benefit from Reiki. Do you see children?
A: Yes I do, but not younger than 6 without special consultation. For children I ask a parent or guardian to come and remain in the room for the duration of the session.
