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.
