What To Expect
HANDS ON HEALING
Reiki is given through a light, non-invasive touch where the Reiki Master places their hands directly on, or slightly above the energy centers of the body. Light tapping may be used to remove or release energy blockages. The Reiki symbols and mantras work together to bring healing and balance to help us become whole. It enhances spiritual growth and intuition, allowing those who give and receive it to feel a greater clarity about themselves and their lives.
As each client is unique, the techniques used in each session may vary to suit the individual needs. A guided meditation or breathing techniques may be used by the Reiki Master to bring the client into relaxation as they start by scanning the aura of the body. Once the areas that require healing have been identified the Reiki Master uses sacred symbols, mantras and hand positions to channel the flow of universal life energy to the receiver. The length of time the healers hands may stay in one position varies depending on the needs of the client. You may be asked to turn and lie on your side or stomach for healing to the energy centers and organs in the back.
At the end of your healing session the Reiki Master will give you a few minutes to open your eyes, sit up and become re-acquainted with your physical body. It is important to drink water and be mindful of any cleansing symptoms. Reiki healing can last anywhere from 3-10 days and its effects can be felt almost immediately. The Reiki Master will discuss the treatment and is available for follow up questions or concerns. In order to benefit from the long-term effects it is recommended that you receive Reiki regularly and in addition to any pre-existing medical or holistic treatments you may be receiving.
DISTANCE REIKI HEALING
Distance Reiki healing is given in the absence of a physical being, object or place. It works on all levels of the spirit body, including those that lie outside of space and time. It is a technique based on the principle of free and uninterrupted universal energy, which is always available, accessible and flowing.
Shayleen conducts Distance Reiki via Zoom video chat. She uses a combination of sacred symbols, crystals and geometric grids to send you energy. It is important to be mindful of when your distance healing is taking place so you can set aside the time as well to be resting or doing a low energy activity. This will allow you to be more aware of treatment responses or anything that may come through, as well as to get the most from the healing.
You will receive an email confirmation with a link to the zoom video call after you book your appointment. Each session lasts 30 minutes and includes a guided meditation to help you relax the body, focus your mind and calm the spirit. Any channelled messages that are received will be shared directly and you have the option to record your session.
Please login or connect 5-10 minutes early so we can begin promptly at your scheduled appointment time.
