Read moreEveryone has a different experience with Reiki but at the very least you will leave your treatment with a deep sense of relaxation. Reiki has been found to lift away fears, opening the door to seeing more clearly. When battling with an issue or major decision, Reiki can help to clear cloudy judgment and bring thoughts into focus. At Ste. Anne’s Spa, we practice the “Dr. Usui” Reiki method. After spending a few moments at the beginning of your treatment discussing any past experiences you may have had with Reiki, your therapist will leave the room allowing you to undress to your level of comfort. On re-entry, your therapist will adjust the lighting creating an atmosphere of calm. Closing your eyes and focusing on your breathing, allows you the opportunity to relax your mind and heart opening a path to healing. As your therapist quietly moves around your body, you may feel any number of sensations from heat to cold to tingling. You may also see images or colours. Your treatment is completed when the therapist performs an energy sweep of your body which removes any negative emotions that may be hanging on, allowing your energy to ground. When your treatment is complete, you may want to discuss what happened during the treatment with your therapist especially if you felt any of the sensations above. It is very common for your mouth and eyes to feel dry afterwards therefore it is important to drink lots of water which is an energy conductor. It is recommended that a series of three Reiki treatments are done within a six month period. The first treatment is known as “putting the key in the door.” The second treatment is “turning the key” and the third treatment is “the door opening,” which is when a full release takes place. Reiki can be combined with other health care practices which enhance the results in restoring energy. The deep relaxation and nurturing of a Reiki session enable the body to heal itself. This type of treatment is suitable for all ages, body types and those who are relatively healthy or suffering from any type of ailment. As a final note, it is important to wear something you are comfortable in. You will be lying on the treatment table under warm blankets so you can undress to your comfort level. It is also very important to go into the treatment with an open mind and heart. By Julia Coombs, Esthetician Julia has been with Ste. Anne’s Spa since 2006.
