Reiki is an ancient hands-on healing art rediscovered in the early 1900s by a Japanese scholar, Mikao Usui. Reiki is a Japanese word representing "Universal Life Force" the energy around and within you. This "intelligent energy" activates and supports your natural ability to restore spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical balance and optimal health. Since Reiki harmonizes the subtle energies of the mind, body and spirit, it is ideal for addressing issues such as chronic ailments, stress, anxiety, physical trauma, emotional distress.
Fully clothed, you lie on a massage table, and you listen to Stephanie's guided visualization statements which prompt your body and mind into a state of relaxation. The calm and sacred environment fully supports you to surrender to the experience. There is a hands-on body form which begins at the head and moves down the body. The sacred, intuitive touch supports all areas of the body, but you can request Reiki to relieve physically stressed areas in the body. The state of stillness may calm your busy mind, so your body can begin to heal and re-vitalize itself, but if you have any questions or insights you'd like to share during the session, it is absolutely appropriate to do so.

Can I receive Reiki while pregnant?
Absolutely! Reiki provides the vital life energy you need to manage the transformational changes taking place as well as the mental emotional stress. Having received Reiki throughout all aspects of my own three pregnancies and deliveries, I can only say that Reiki was a blessing and a daily practice at that time in my life. It made a huge difference.
How often should I receive Reiki?
It is entirely a personal choice. The more you receive Reiki, the better you feel. When there is a chronic health issue or a physical trauma, the sooner you receive Reiki the faster the body heals. Frequent Reiki sessions help you to feel more centered and integrated in everyday living. Reiki is always helpful when you are facing chronic illness such as cancer, asthma, migraines etc. Reiki provides you with the energy to cope with inner turmoil and fears. This often provides what you need to change your relationship or perception with the nature of your suffering.
