What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the client by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the person's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.

 

will it help me?

Generally speaking Reiki helps:

  • Reduce stress and promotes relaxation 
  • Improves mood and positive energy
  • Decreases tiredness, pain and anxiety
  • Enables emotional clarity, healing and spiritual growth 

 

how does it work?

Each practitioner designs their sessions their own way. And so no two Reiki sessions are the same. When you come see me, because I'm an occupational therapist, I am interested in knowing about how you're coping in your day to day life, what your goals and intentions are and how it is impacting your wellbeing and life satisfaction.

I also integrate mystical elements like animal cards, crystals, Tibetan bells and pendulum. 

After we talk about what's going on in your world, you will get comfortable on the table (fully clothed). With your permission, I lay my hands gently on you starting from your head down to your feet. You may close your eyes while you listen to tranquil music and relax. Following the Reiki, we will have some time to wrap up with any insights and questions.

My initiation into Reiki

Lynne-9669.jpg

As a sensitive child I always knew we were more than our bodies. As a teen, I read books like Many Lives, Many Masters and The Celestine Prophecy.

The summer before I turned 19, I met my spiritual mentor and she introduced me to Reiki. We exchanged conversations throughout my 20's while I contemplated things like the difference between judgment and discernment. I was attuned to Reiki while studying occupational therapy in university in 2003 and most recently, completed my level 2 Reiki training with a focus on fertility, pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

Reiki has always been a part of my healing regime for navigating life's ups and down— from overcoming fertility struggles, to preparing for birth and caring for my self and family.

a few words from clients 

"Lynne is such a spiritual connoisseur. She has boosted my journey by about 1000— all through distance work!"  
"Participating in some 'me' time was a huge benefit. I felt very relaxed and grounded after the session.  It was that peace that I strive to have on a more regular and daily basis.  I wish I could just bottle it up and wear it all day!"
"I left feeling more relaxed, and feeling a little less weighed down by the pressures of it all."
"I went for it because I 'feel' a lot. I'm not very good with words, so when I'm in a situation I don't want to address, I just kinda mentally move on. I'm not holding back the big things like an important conversation with my boss/husband/etc. For me, I'm talking about the stuff that I'm not even conscious about (e.g. maybe a miscarriage, or a void with a person in my life, etc). I look at Reiki like it helps 'undo' those stuck parts of me that I didn't process."
"There was something quite liberating, to articulate the feelings and experiences around our fertility journey, with someone who understands, and not just stating the mechanics of what we are experiencing, but the emotional impact of it. I loved the stillness and peace of my Reiki experience! "
"While a massage therapist physically presses stress out of muscles, it's like Reiki uses vibes alone to move out bad feels. And I think the healing comes from 'obvious' things like a calm, relaxed room, deep conversation and attention/care/focus on me for over an hour - that alone is good enough, but there's the 'not-so-obvious' things that I think push this over into serious healing like feeling the presence of another human being with healing intentions 'moving' your feelings/energy through your body just with their presence over you and focus of their thought on you.
"I uncovered something in my session that I nearly forgot about (my miscarriages) and it was powerful enough to make me cry."
"I have to say that a part of me was curious but also a teeny bit skeptical of how Reiki can work with such minimal touch.  It was a fabulous and very gentle experience.  I love love loved this treatment and meeting you!  The discussion of the chakras was very interesting to me and I definitely want to come experience this again."

"Reiki is not the easiest thing to explain to people who haven’t experienced it or perhaps haven’t even heard of it.  But this was a very sincere opportunity to really connect with myself (and especially baby #3) in a way that we don’t often allow ourselves or even know how to do. I felt a sense of release - like a weight was lifted - even just a little - afterwards in the same way that I feel a sense of rest and calm after a yoga class."
