Reiki Energy Healing in St. Petersburg, FL :-)

What Is Reiki Energy Healing?

Reiki is the beautiful art of energy healing. The word "Reiki", of Japanese origin, is an effective form of energy work that uses the life force energy that is found within and around all of us. The word "Rei" means "Universal Life" and "Ki" means "Energy”. Within every being their "Ki" should be free-flowing and strong. Reiki induces these effects. 

 

The history of Reiki dates back thousands of years but was brought back into popular demand by Japanese Buddhist, Mikao Usui in 1922. Reiki is used to treat many ailments including but not limited to: stress, tension, psychical pain, emotional pain, discomfort, disease, trauma, loss, grief, anxiety, depression and many more.

What Can I Expect In My Session?

Reiki treatments can last anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes. Prior to the start of the actual session, we will discuss together what has been troubling you - physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. For the actual session, you will remove your shoes, remaining fully clothed, and rest supine comfortably on the massage table. I will then proceed with a cleansing of the entire auric field, moving into the Reiki hand positions. Oftentimes I am led completely by my intuition and thus I move my hands over the entire chakra system. Staying in tune and connected with which parts of the body are calling most for healing or a release.  This is then followed by a final cleansing of the entire body's energy field. You may feel a warming, cooling, vibrating and/or tingling sensation during the session but this means that it is working! After your session we will discuss how you felt before, during and after and if any messages from the Universe are wanting to be shared with you. 

 

Within a Reiki session you can expect yourself to receive deeper insight into the inner workings of your internal and external worlds. You may see colors, or visions, be brought back into your childhood, or all of the above. It's important to release expectations while going into a Reiki session so that we truly open ourselves up to the infinite potential that is to come from such a powerful soul session. 

What Are The Benefits Of Reiki Energy Healing?

Studies have shown that reiki therapy is helpful for reducing stress and anxiety, easing pain, and even improving your quality of life. It can bring about symptom relief and other improvements, like:

  • Help with meditation

  • Balance to your immune system

  • Post-surgery healing of bones and tissues

  • A natural form of healing one's self

  • Support healing in those who have other medical conditions

Does reiki help with anxiety?

Most definitely. A review of studies found that hands-on reiki was better than a placebo (a “fake” treatment that researchers use to compare with results of a real treatment in a study) at doing things like lowering resting heart rate and blood pressure. The researchers said that reiki has also been found to be more effective than a placebo at easing anxiety, pain, and depression and at boosting quality of life and self-esteem in people with long-term health conditions.

What conditions can reiki sessions help with? 

Because reiki is working with the universal life force energy, it can be useful in helping with many conditions, including:

  • Trouble with digestion

  • Infertility (a hard time having children)

  • Chronic pain

  • Parkinson's disease

  • Conditions caused by stress

  • Cancer

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

FAQ:

Is Reiki Healing a religion?

- Although Reiki energy is spiritual in nature, Reiki is not a religion. Practitioners are not asked to change any religious or spiritual beliefs they may have. They are free to continue believing anything they choose and are encouraged to make their own decisions concerning the nature of their religious practices.

Are there any side effects from a Reiki Healing Session?

- Most of the time a person will feel relaxed and uplifted by a Reiki treatment. However, sometimes a person will have what is called a healing crisis. As a person’s vibration goes up, toxins that have been stored in the body will be released into the blood stream to be filtered by the liver and kidneys and removed from the system. When this happens, sometimes a person can get a headache or stomach ache or feel weak. If this happens, it is a good idea to drink more water, eat lighter meals and get more rest. The body is cleansing as part of the healing process so this is a good sign.

Does insurance cover Reiki Energy Healing?

- Reiki is just starting to be recognized by insurance companies. While not many are covering Reiki treatments, some are. Check with your local insurance company for details.

How does Reiki Energy Healing work?

- We are alive because life force is flowing through us. Life force flows within the physical body though pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body.

 

The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body.

Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.

Is it safe for pregnant women?

- Since Reiki is guided by the Higher Power, the Reiki energy will know the condition of the client or student and adjust appropriately. Reiki can only do good. Many pregnant women have received treatments with great benefit to them and their unborn child. It has also been used during child birth. Pregnant women have also taken the Reiki training and received the Reiki attunement with beneficial results.

Where does Reiki Energy come from?

- Reiki energy is a subtle energy. It is different than electricity or chemical energy or other kinds of physical energy. Reiki energy comes from the Higher Power, which exists on a higher dimension than the physical world we are familiar with. When viewed clairvoyantly, Reiki energy appears to come down from above and to enter the top of the practitioners head after which if flows through the body and out the hands. It appears to flow this way because of our perspective. However, the true source of Reiki energy is within ourselves. This does not mean that we use our personal energy when we do Reiki, but that the energy is coming from a transcendental part of ourselves that is connected to an infinite supply of healing energy.

How does a distant Reiki Energy Healing session work?

- Distance is quite simply a method to help others with their own personal healing without actually being physically present with them. Energy is not limited by time or space. Our Higher Self is fully aware of this lack of limitations. Logic and reason are also not required. We are able to embrace cause and effect simultaneously with the past, present, and future. It makes no difference at this level if the person we are working with is on the other side of the room or the other side of the planet. We are only limited by questions of our own intellect. 

We need only ignore this cultural conditioning and proceed guided by the intuitive abilities of our true self. 

When performing distance healing it is often said that one "sends" healing to another. This is actually a misnomer. The person receiving the healing actually draws upon their own Universal Life Force. As with an in-person healing session the Reiki Practitioner simply helps channel this energy. From a distance the healer becomes a bridge between healee and the source.

I recently underwent a reiki healing session with Maddie and it was by far one of the most impactful reiki sessions I've experienced thus far. No matter the physical setting, Maddie has the ability to hold such a safe and loving space. She is so thoughtful and intentional in everything she does, simply being in her presence is energetically healing. So thankful I was able to work with her! I highly recommend anyone and everyone to receive healing from this angel. Happy healing to you all.

Reiki with Maddie was life-changing! I went in skeptical, unsure what to expect but Maddie made me feel at ease and completely relaxed. I left feeling, “ I can’t wait til our next session”. Maddie did an amazing job explaining the process and the journey of spiritual healing, definitely worth trying if you are a newbie !!

I had my first ever Reiki session with Maddie and WOW!! This was such a powerful, moving, and healing experience for me that I was not expecting at all. She is so incredibly gifted in this healing work! I'm so grateful that she took the time to talk with me before and after the session, and I left with having an inner shift on some old painful stuff, which I was not expecting but am so grateful for. Her energy is very comforting and I'm so grateful I found her! I highly recommend experiencing a healing session for yourself. You deserve it.
