What is Reiki?


Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an ancient method of light touch therapy that uses energy to:

  • help release blockages within the body

  • using the life force energy to heal

  • balance the subtle energies within our bodies

As a natural healing system, Reiki assists on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. The practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed.

 Reiki’s energies (ki or prana) flow out of the practitioner’s body through the palms of the hands and into the recipient’s body. Reiki is an intelligent energy because it knows which areas of the body most need healing and will automatically flow to specific areas where suffering or imbalances are prevalent.

What to expect during a reiki session?  

  • The client arrives, and we briefly discuss the intake form (previously filled out and emailed in) and answer any questions or concerns.

  • We will set an intention for the session. Your session will be unique and customized to your healing goals.

  • The client lies on the massage table on his/her back, fully clothed, shoes removed, with an eye pillow placed gently over the eyes for ultimate relaxation. We will begin with some relaxing music, breathing exercise, sound bowls and meditation to slow the mind and body.

  • Practitioners will begin the energy healing by placing their hands lightly on the client in a series of positions, starting with the head area (eyes, temples, crown, chest/heart, rib cage/solar plexus, upper abdomen, lower abdomen, pelvis/hips)

  • Clients tend to drift into a deep state of meditation and relaxation during the session.

  • Once finished with the front-body positions, the client will be gently asked to turn over and lie facing downward on his/her stomach on the massage table with his/her head in the face cradle.

  • We will continue with the remaining hand positions on the back (shoulders, upper back, middle and lower back, tailbone)

  • At the end of the session, we will gently bring your awareness back to the room, do a check in and discuss any observations, visions, thoughts or questions felt during and after the session.

  • If a client is interested Marliz will do a Crystal Oracle Card reading and discuss results
