Reiki – Touch Therapy
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) means “Universal Life Energy”. It is a gentle and compassionate touch therapy. Reiki originated in Japan in the late 1800’s and its practice became popular in the U.S. in the early 1970’s. Since then, Reiki has flourished around the world. It is now practiced in many world-renowned hospitals, clinics and private settings. Compassionate touch has helped many people cope during times of added stress, illness and trauma. Reiki is not a religion or specific belief.
A person may sit or lie down, fully clothed, during Reiki. The receiver needs only to relax. The practitioner would then place their hands slightly above or gently on the receiver. Receivers of Reiki energy report feeling calm, peaceful and more positive after their session.
Stressful life situations and loss are experienced by everyone. This could leave us feeling isolated and overwhelmed, thereby taking a toll on our general health and especially our emotional state. The role of the Reiki practitioner is to accompany you along the process toward feeling better overall. A practitioner does not heal you, but encourages your body, mind and spirit in a positive way so that healing may take place. It is suitable for everyone and has only positive side effects.
I recently went through a rough patch and was having a very difficult time coping. On a trip to the grocery store I took a detour to Insideout Health & Wellness. I was hoping to get a massage. What I got was exactly what I needed–feeling frazed and out of control to calm, refreshed and centered. Alisha is a very gifted woman and has a rare ability to tune in to what is needed. Alisha is one of the warmest, kindest, most compassionate and present therapists I have seen for reiki. What was an unplanned visit became a series of visits that really lifted me our of a bad reaction to circumstances. Alisha will be my go to person for energy work!
