Crystal Reiki Healing
What is Reiki?
Reiki is an energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, stress reduction, and systemic balance. Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to your body, improving the flow and balance of your energy to support healing.
Mikao Usui developed Reiki in the early 1900s, deriving the term from the Japanese words rei, meaning “universal,” and ki, which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Now, Reiki is used all over the world, including hospitals, hospices, healing centers, and animal shelters.
Reiki aids in healing by helping you to become energetically balanced on every level of your being: physical, energetic, mental/emotional, wisdom/intuitive, and spirit.
The Health Benefits of Reiki
The Physical Level:
Reiki supports and accelerates the body’s own natural ability to heal itself, usually alleviating pain and relieving symptoms while helping the body to rid itself of poisons and toxins. It balances and harmonizes our energy field, promoting a sense of calm and wholeness, positivity, and an overall feeling of well-being. It can also cultivate a deeper awareness of your body, mind, and spirit's real needs.
The Energetic Level:
Because Reiki promotes deep relaxation, this can be a restorative balm to your energy stores and your nervous system. According to Ayurveda, most illnesses begin on the energetic level where the life-force energy (prana) is blocked. Reiki can help release and reduce blockages on the energetic level to assist your system in healing and rejuvenation.
The Mental/Emotional Level:
Reiki leads to a state of deep relaxation, which releases stress and tension. It allows you to let go of negative thoughts, concepts and attitudes which opens a space for positive thoughts, peace, and serenity to arise. Reiki can inspire you to examine your conditioned emotional responses, encouraging you to let go of darker emotions such as resentment or jealousy while promoting the qualities of love, trust, compassion, and goodwill. It can also help you channel emotional energy into creativity.
The Intuitive Wisdom Level:
As the mental/emotional level calms and balances, your wisdom and intuitive abilities may become enhanced. This can lead to greater clarity and living your highest potential through insight and self-awareness.
The Spiritual Level:
Reiki helps you to accept, integrate and love your whole self while fostering a compassionate approach to others. It promotes the qualities of love, understanding, and acceptance while encouraging your unique and personal spiritual journey and development.
What to Expect In Your Reiki Session with Ellie
Ellie offers in-person treatments at her healing space on Beacon Hill in Seattle or via phone or zoom. Please specify whether you will be meeting Ellie in person or via your phone or Zoom.
Before you begin, Ellie will ask you to fill out a Client Intake Form that gives you an opportunity to let Ellie know any current health conditions and what your goals are for treatment. You’ll then take a few minutes to discuss this information so that Ellie is clear about how you are feeling on the day of your treatment and the intention for the healing.
Reiki treatments typically last about 50 minutes. During a session, you lie on a massage table fully clothed (or if you are more comfortable, the treatment can happen while you sit in a chair), as Ellie gently places her hands, palms down just above your body in specific energy locations. These seven main energy centers are called chakras. Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel. Ellie will not touch you unless you have given her permission and that can change at any time during your treatment. You are in charge at all times. The time she leaves her hands in each position is determined by the flow of energy through her hands at each location.
Most people find that silence during the treatment is best but please feel free to talk with Ellie if that would make you feel more comfortable, present, and clear. Ellie may or may not have a question or two for you during treatment.
Some people find great comfort and soothing listening to healing music during treatment. Ellie has many different options from wind chimes, to Nature sounds, to calming crystal bowls . Just let Ellie know at the beginning of your session if you would like music and she will be happy to provide healing music or sounds.
What Does Reiki Feel Like?
You may experience the energy in the form of sensations like heat, tingling or pulsing in the area where Ellie is placing her hands. Sometimes people feel sensations and sometimes they don’t. It is not necessary for you to feel the energy in order for the treatment to be beneficial to you.
Most people feel very relaxed and peaceful during Reiki treatment, and many fall asleep in the process. That’s fine :0)
Of utmost importance is that you know that you are in charge of the session at all times
. It is very rare, but if at any time you begin to feel uncomfortable or anxious, just let Ellie know how you would like to proceed or if you need to stop the treatment.
Why use crystals?
Because each crystal bears its own properties and specific energies, Ellie uses the crystals to focus and amplify the Reiki energy in your treatment. With your permission, Ellie may place crystals on or near any of the 7 main chakras. Due to the location of the first chakra (base of the tailbone) Ellie will place two crystals that help to balance this chakra on the top of each of your thighs. If you would be more comfortable placing the crystals, just let Ellie know and she can guide you to the appropriate locations. If at any time, you begin to feel uncomfortable, anxious, or imbalanced just let Ellie know and we can adjust or discontinue the treatment and/or the use of crystals.
Can Reiki Replace Traditional Treatment?
No. Reiki treatment should not be used as a substitute for the consultation of a physician or mental health professional.
Reiki is a complement to other types of medical and therapeutic treatments, and it may increase the efficacy of other types of healing.
If you are in good health, regular Reiki treatments can increase your resilience and enhance your ability to respond to stress, serving as a form of preventative medicine.
