Welcome to Lightning Rod Reiki! Here you can learn more about Reiki and find out if it’s right for you.
What is Reiki?
In short, Reiki is energy channeled through the body to areas requiring attention and healing. Reiki invokes a sense of calm and relaxation in the body, mind, and spirit by providing balance and clarity in an individual’s energetic body and biofield. It has been scientifically proven to lower blood pressure, reduce stress, and bring balance to the mind-body-spirit connection.
How does Reiki work?
Everything is energy and we are all connected. Every cell, every organ, and every thought can be connected to energy. When there is an energetic blockage, it can manifest as many different symptoms such as dis-ease, illness, dissatisfaction, or discomfort.
Reiki masters and practitioners have learned how to open themselves to this energy and create a channel through which balance can occur. Reiki is not controlled through the body, it will go where it is needed. This energy will illuminate the areas in need of assistance and can provide relief and ease within the body and mind. There is no risk with Reiki, as it as been proven to provide no negative effects as well as being stronger than a placebo effect.
What are the benefits of Reiki?
Reiki has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and pain, improve symptoms such as depression and anxiety, and strengthen overall well-being. Clients have reported increased self-esteem and a deeper connection to themselves and the world. Reiki is widely recommended as a supplementary treatment for those experiencing illness or chronic disorders, physical or psychological. Check out the testimonials for more information.
What can I expect from a Reiki session?
A typical session starts after a brief conversation about what you would like to accomplish from treatment. Clients are treated lying down on a massage table, first face up and then on their stomachs. The more comfortable, the better. Caitlin will ask the client to set an intention for the session; there is no limit to what a client may intend. Sometimes crystals are used to aid the energy centers of the body, known as chakras, and will be placed on or around your body. Music and incense and/or sage is also used during each session.
After the session is closed, there is a discussion about any intuitive discoveries that have been found. These discoveries can be many things, as channeling energy requires the practitioner to be open. You are more than welcome to bring a pen and paper to record your own notes. Drink lots of water and rest after the session if you are able.
The intention for each session is for the highest good of all, always.
