We offer Reiki Healing in Southern Pines, NC. Reiki (“RAY-kee”) is a Japanese word meaning “spiritually guided life force energy.” It is an energetic healing technique that has been found to enhance the body’s ability to heal itself. Reiki can be used alone or in conjunction with any form of medical, psychological, or therapeutic treatment. This technique can be learned by anyone and can be used on oneself, others, animals, and plants.
“If you want to understand the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
Reiki Healing is Gaining Ground
The National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization now recognize the remarkable effects of Reiki as a viable means of energy medicine practice. This means that Reiki Practitioners are exploring new opportunities to practice in the more traditional and conventional areas of medicine. For example, Reiki is being offered through hospices, cancer centers, and hospitals such as Walter-Reed National Military Medical Center and Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Additionally, nurses, massage therapists, athletic trainers, mental health counselors, and professionals in many other fields can now receive continuing education credit for Reiki Healing courses. Interestingly, the National Institutes of Health and the Mayo Clinic both indicate that 85% of all disease in the body occurs due to the emotional imbalance of our internal energies.
Larry Dossey, M.D., author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things, says, “Reiki is increasingly being incorporated into modern medicine because of one compelling reason…it works.”
What Reiki is Not
Although I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I am not a Licensed Physician, and Reiki does not require licensing by the State of North Carolina. Reiki healing in Southern Pines, NC and other forms of energy healing are meant to be a complement to the Western medicine that is provided by doctors, nurses, mental health clinicians, and other licensed medical professionals.
Premise of Treatment
Stress, trauma, and illness restrict the natural flow of ki (chi) or “life force energy” through the body. By restoring the flow of energy through the body, Reiki rejuvenates the body’s ability to heal itself.
Although one session may be adequate, long-term imbalances in the body sometimes require multiple treatments in order to bring the system back into balance. Improvement often requires commitment on the client’s part, such as willingness to make lifestyle changes, in order to fully benefit from Reiki treatment(s).
Nature of Services Provided
Reiki is in no way massage therapy or a medical examination. Commonly, individuals prefer to lay down for a reiki session however, you may choose to stand or be seated. For most of the session, my hands will remain about 2-3 inches or more above your body. Reiki energy can be transferred either by direct touch or with the hands hovering just above your body. Once the session begins, the life force energy flows through my hands; this may be experienced by you as heat, coolness, vibrating, tingling, a light pressure, a slight pulling sensation, or nothing at all. Crystals may be placed on or near your body to enhance the process. Additionally, sound and/or vibrational instruments such as a drum, rattle, chimes or a Tibetan singing bowl may be used to assist in breaking up unwanted energy blocks. However, crystals, vibration, and sound are not necessary for effective Reiki treatment. Keep in mind, I am simply a conduit of the life force energy. It is believed that the energy is guided by God/Source/Spirit/Universe for the physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual well-being of the individual being treated. Therefore, a specific outcome cannot be guaranteed by me, the Reiki Practitioner.
