With all the problems and fears surrounding the pandemic, stress and anxiety are inevitable. Those fortunate enough to have avoided the severe consequences of this virus still remain victims of the stress it has created.
Reiki healing can be part of a positive holistic plan in support of your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. It is a holistic therapy that reduces stress and therefore enhances the innate recuperative powers of the body to heal itself.
Science is showing us that everything is energy—including you. The universe is composed of energy vibrating at different frequencies. Depending on the rate of vibration, this energy can manifest as subtle, unseen frequencies or dense physical matter.
Reiki is based on the idea that this unseen “life-force energy” flows through us and is the source of life itself. If our life-force energy is low or blocked, then we are more likely to manifest disease or feel stressed; if it is high, our immune system is enhanced and our bodies and brains function more efficiently. When stress levels are reduced, we are more able to cope even in these challenging times.
Can Reiki sessions actually be done remotely? Absolutely. Energy knows no time or space, and for that reason remote sessions are just as powerful as in-person sessions. As I sit in my office, you can be in the safety of your own home, receiving the vibrations of lightness and healing. Here are some benefits of Reiki:

•    Anxiety, fear and worry can be released.
•    Trauma can be processed and released.
•    Physical pain can be reduced.
•    Stress can be reduced.
•    Feelings of relaxation, peace and calm can be enhanced.

As a certified Reiki master, I’m offering my services at a reduced fee for new clients through June 30. Those new-client discounts include a one-hour session for $40 (usually $100) and a half-hour session for $20. First responders receive an additional discount.

We will make it through this together and come out better and stronger.
