(pronounced ray-key) is a safe, gentle and non-invasive form of healing that increases energy, reduces pain and stress, produces deep relaxation and promotes a general feeling of well-being.
The word Reiki comes from the Japanese words Rei, which means “universal life”, and Ki, which means “energy”. Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. When this energy flow in the body becomes imbalanced or blocked, the body experiences discomfort. A Reiki session can alleviate this discomfort by re-opening the body’s energy flow to allow healing.
A Reiki session concentrates on the body’s energy centers, called chakras. A Reiki practitioner uses gentle hand movements over the body, or over the miles, channeling healthy energy through the chakras to realign and unblock the energy flow. This realignment then radiates outward to balance the body at emotional, mental and physical levels, increasing feelings of relaxation and wellness.
Reiki allows the body to heal from within by relieving damage brought on by stress, injury, or disease. Reiki can be effective for a wide range of physical and emotional health benefits, including lowered anxiety, better sleep, improved mood, lowered blood pressure, strengthened immune system, heightened focus, pain relief and a feeling of well-being. Reiki sessions can be very effective on their own, or as complementary therapy to standard medical treatments.
Reiki energy connects on our spiritual and energetic levels, so is not limited by physical distance. This healing method can be effective with an in person session or from miles away.
Reiki is a gentle, yet powerful means of support for body, mind and spirit.
Welcome! I’m Torie
The beautiful energy of Reiki has brought comfort and healing to my life for many years, and today, as a certified Reiki Master, I’m delighted to offer both in person and distance Reiki sessions for you.
Let me help you balance your body’s energy with safe, gentle, non-invasive therapy that provides deep healing on all levels.
Book an appointment below, or contact me for more info or with any questions you may have.
What to expect in a Reiki session with me:
In person sessions are held at my studio in Ithaca, NY.
Distance sessions are available to any location, via phone. During the session you may prefer total quiet or soft music while you relax. A photo is helpful for me to connect to your energy, but is not necessary.
Prior to the session
After you make your appointment, I will email a few brief questions for you to answer, including your areas of concern. I’ll also be happy to answer any questions you may have.
During the session
We will begin the session with a chat about your areas of concern and how you might expect Reiki to help. We will also have a short meditation to initialize grounding, focus and relaxation.
You will be fully clothed and lying down, or in a comfortable position for you. The energy flow is released from my hands as I move them above your body, or across the miles. There is no physical contact.
You may experience sensations in the body such as heat or tingling. You may see visualizations such as colors or pictures, or have memories appear. You may feel only deep relaxation.
After the session
I suggest you sit for a bit and drink some cool water. You may feel relaxed or energized immediately following a session, or these feelings may come up a few hours later.
I look forward to sharing with you the beautiful energy of Reiki healing.
