Reiki is an energy healing that works holistically on the whole body, mind and spirit. It is a relaxing treatment where natural healing vibrations are transmitted through the hands of a practitioner who acts as a conduit, to the body of the recipient.
The purpose of a Reiki is to relieve stress and pain, induce relaxation, release emotional blockages, accelerate natural healing, balance subtle bodies energies and support other medical modalities. Reiki also helps you develop a stronger connection to your intuition, living with more clarity, purpose and intention.
The body is more than physical, we are made up of thoughts, emotions and feelings. Gentle touch, tapping and massage is applied to acupressure points, neurovascular and neuro-lymphatic pressure points, meridians and chakras. Sound Therapy (singing bowls, chakra tuning forks), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), breath work, guided meditations, diaphragmatic breathing, and grounding techniques are also used to balance, realign and release stress and anxiety.
Benefits of receiving Reiki throughout pregnancy:
-Reduces feelings of exhaustion, anxiety
-Promotes feelings of inner-peace and self-confidence
-Helps you tap into your intuition and find your inner-voice
