REIKI IS THE UNIVERSAL LIFE FORCE ENERGY FOUND IN NATURE
Reiki is a form of alternative medicine called energy healing. Reiki Master practitioners facilitate healing through the palms of their hands to transfer "universal energy" to the client to encourage mental, emotional and physical well being.
The client remains fully clothed as hands hover over the client to bring mind, body, and spirit back into balance.
I honestly wasn't sure what to expect out of a Reiki treatment though so I went into it with no real expectations but with an open mind. During my treatment I was experiencing some of the worst menstrual cramps I'd ever had. I didn't mention it but she asked what was going on. It kind of blew my mind she could see/feel the pain I was experiencing. My mind was continuously blown for the next few months after my treatment. I had almost no cramps!!!! I followed up and had a 2nd treatment with Annie about a month ago when the cramps seemed like they were starting to return. I'm now currently cramp-free again after another lovely Reiki treatment. Short story, I'm a firm believer in Reiki and in Annie Larson! I HIGHLY recommend her services. She's friendly, open, caring, and just a beautiful soul to spend time with. Kristen
What is Reiki?
Reiki, a Japanese word "Rei" that means "universal life" and "Ki" that mean "energy," is an energetic healing art form. It is not hands-on like massage nor is it based on any beliefs or religious practice.
Reiki flows through all living things. My favorite way to describe it is to liken it to "the force" from the "Star Wars" series.
When a person's "ki" is freely flowing, his or her mind, body, and spirit are in harmonious alignment bringing balance back to a positive state of well-being.
Reiki sessions aid in easing pain, tension and stress. Reiki is well studied and embraced by western medicine.
