And I don't mean energetic in the sense of fast-paced or quickly moving. Reiki is energy work. By definition, Reiki is a form of healing where the practitioner channels universal, positive energy into the patient in order to encourage healing or restore wellbeing.
Here at the office, we are all trained in Reiki and other forms of energy healing. It can be done as a stand-alone treatment, or it can be introduced through Massage. Because like the title says, it's a massage for the soul.
Reiki has been used to help treat stress and tension, high blood pressure, pain (whether chronic or acute), and depression to name a few. Others have used Reiki to increase their immunity and vitality, remove energy blockages, help with their spiritual growth, aid themselves during cancer treatments, and to improve their sleep. There's many benefits to Reiki other than what has been listed here.
But, I find not too many people know what Reiki is or have even heard of it in the first place. It's not as "commonplace" as Massage Therapy, or Chiropractic, or yoga. If you are interested in learning more about Reiki, or maybe you'd like to receive a treatment, you can always schedule an appointment here at the office (The Sacred Self). Otherwise, here are some organizations to help build your knowledge base:
The International Center for Reiki Training
IARP - International Association of Reiki Professionals
The Reiki Alliance
Massachusetts Reiki Community
Heart of Reiki
