More About Reiki and Energy Healing
Reiki is a form of alternative medicine developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Since its beginning in Japan, Reiki has been adapted across varying cultural traditions. It uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands-on-healing. Through the use of this technique, practitioners believe that they are transferring "universal energy" through the palms of the practitioner, which they believe encourages healing.
A Reiki Session at Unlocking The Body will usually be fully clothed, but sometimes during regular Massage Sessions it can be incorporated along with manual techniques if requested. The sessions usually last 60 - 90 minutes and the Practitioner will place her hands on various points of the body and send energy through the area to help create tissue movement and energetic movement, similar to acupressure but with a light touch.
If requested, the Reiki Practitioner may also help with Chakra Balancing. She may use polished stones or crystals that reverberate to certain energy points and or sound therapy usually with a Tibetan Singing Bowl.
Kathryn Killingbeck is trained in this modality and would love to see if Reiki or Chakra Balancing would help you progress in your care. If you have any questions or concerns, please email the Massage Practitioner directly and to schedule please contact our front office at the number below.
