Reiki helps to promote harmony and balance. It is an effective, non-invasive energy healing modality that enhances the body’s natural healing ability whilst energizing and promoting overall wellness. Reiki works directly on restoring balance on all levels and works directly on the problem and condition instead of just masking or relieving symptoms.
You do not need to be into spirituality to enjoy the benefits of reiki. Yet, for many they receive reiki treatments to support themselves through their self-healing journey i.e. spiritual growth / personal development.
Reiki addresses the whole person, rather than targeting individual symptoms. It can create profound, often subtle shifts from deep within your own being. What does that look like? Guidance about what to do around difficult situations can come more easily. Or it may inspire a change in attitude or belief about your situation. Suddenly, you see your condition from a fresh perspective and are able to deal with it in a more positive way. Or it might direct you to the right kind of action needed which is guided from within.
What many people enjoy about a reiki treatment is it allows them time to themselves where they aren’t ‘doing’ but just ‘being’. Clients have reported feeling more clear, peaceful, relaxed and lighter in themselves.
Reiki provides a space where you can be more aware of what is going on inside your body and mind. To learn to listen to your own body and make wise decisions regarding your well-being from this place. Being more present means you are in your body, which helps you to access even more that inner knowing and wisdom that we all have!
Regular Reiki treatments can bring about a calmer and more peaceful state of being, in which a person is better able to cope with everyday stress. This mental balance also enhances learning, memory and mental clarity.
Reiki can heal mental/emotional wounds and can help alleviate mood swings, fear, frustration and even anger. Reiki can also strengthen and heal personal relationships.
Because Reiki enhances your capability to love, it can open you up to the people around you and help your relationships grow.
Reiki can support you in staying centered in the present moment rather than getting caught up in regrets about the past or anxieties about the future. It can strengthen your ability to accept and work with the way events are unfolding even when they don’t follow your desires or timetable. You begin to react to situations, people and yourself in a supportive way rather than acting out of habit.
We spend so much time in stress-reactive fight/flight phase that it becomes our ‘norm’ and our bodies literally forget how to return to balance.
Reiki reminds our bodies how to shift into parasympathetic nervous system (rest / digest) self-healing mode.
Rest/digest doesn’t mean you have to stop being active and productive or ‘do nothing’. It allows you to sleep better and digest better which is important to maintaining health and vitality. The more you are in this space, the more you can be active and productive without being stressed, exhausted or burnout.
On the outside looking in, a Reiki treatment might appear to be merely a sequence of hand placements, it works to restore balance on the deepest possible level. It encourages your system to improve your body’s vital functions (breathing, digesting and sleeping) so your physical systems function optimally.
On the physical level, Reiki has been shown to help in relieving pain from migraine, arthritis, sciatica ~ just to name a few. Some studies show that it also helps relieve some symptoms of asthma, chronic fatigue, menopausal symptoms, and insomnia.
Reiki is a wonderful compliment to conventional medicine and helps relax patients on the levels of the mind and physical body. When a patient is relaxed the healing process is accelerated. People sleep much better and are calmer following Reiki treatments.
The beauty of Reiki is that it is noninvasive and is administered in a very gentle manner. The Reiki practitioner can give Reiki without touching the body in cases where patients have burns or major injuries.
Reiki is safe to use if you have medical conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes or heart conditions. You may receive Reiki treatments if you are undergoing chemotherapy. Pregnant woman can have Reiki treatments to support them through all stages of the pregnancy. Reiki is for everyone!
The number one outcome of receiving a Reiki session is relaxation. When we’re relaxed, we sleep better, our bodies heal better, we think more clearly, and we relate to each other more genuinely. Often clients will experience deep relaxation during their Reiki session and sometimes a deep sleep during the session as well.
Also, reiki healing quickly returns you to your natural state, or at least gets your body moving in the right direction.
That means your breathing, heart rate and blood pressure improve. Breathing deeper and easier is one of the first things to happen during a self-practice or treatment received from someone else. When we breathe better, our minds naturally settle. Science supports that.
As your respiration deepens your body moves into parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) dominance i.e. the rest/digest phase. Your body was made to function primarily in the rest/digest phase rather than the more commonly experienced fight/flight phase.
As a reiki practitioner, people ask me all the time: What is Reiki and what do you do that is different from other reiki practitioners?
First let me answer the question about Reiki. We are surrounded by energy. Some people call it universal energy, some people call it God, some people call it life force energy and depending on where you’re from, you would call it a different name (Ki, Prana, Chi, Holy Spirit). The names might be different but they all refer to the same thing: something bigger than us, wiser than us, which surround us at all times. Reiki is a way to tap into that energy.
During a reiki treatment the practitioner channels that energy and transfers it into the person’s body. The energy then works on the three bodies (physical, mental and spiritual), to help the person feel more centered, relaxed and connected to the source.
Reiki brings us in contact with our higher self, with our intuition and we are open to receiving and processing information in a more effective and clear way.
What we do at Hagerstown Reiki that is different from other reiki practitioners is that after the session, we spend time with you processing feelings, thoughts, or memories that might have come up for you during the session. This time is used to make goals, to understand choices and to make decisions.
After the session you feel centered, relaxed, and empowered, which is the perfect time to process feelings and/or past experiences. I will spend time with you, in a safe environment, assisting you in creating goals and objectives to help you in your journey of personal and spiritual growth.
We’re here for you!
Hope to see you soon!

The next part of the wellness session is your reiki treatment. The reiki treatment will last 30-45 minutes. During the treatment, you will rest comfortably on a reiki table on your back, with no shoes on. Unlike a massage, you will remain fully clothed and skin-to-skin contact between you and our practitioner will be very limited.
The reiki practitioner will transfer the universal energy to you by placing her hands above specific areas of your body. The hand positions are usually aligned with your seven main chakras or energy centers.
