What is Reiki?

Reiki is a spiritual healing practice of Japanese origin. It is not affiliated with any religion. The word Reiki is a combination of Japanese REI, meaning Universal Life, and Ki meaning Energy. Reiki, definied by the International Association of Reiki Professionals, is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spritually guided life force energy.

Reiki Practitioners believe the condition of your energy has a direct impact on your physical and emotional being. For example, weakened or blocked energy will make a person more susceptible to issues like illness, fatigue, depression, anxiety, etc. When a person's energy is strong, their emotional and physical condition is healthier and more positive.

What is Reiki Used For?

Reiki is used around the world for relaxation and stress reduction. It is used often as an effective way to compliment other holistic and traditional forms of medicine. While it does not cure any illness or disease, it helps the body to cultivate an environment best suited for healing.

What to Expect for Your Reiki Session

Practitioners will begin the session with a discussion about what types of issues you are having and what your goals are for the session. You will remove your shoes and lay down on a massage table fully clothed. The practitioner will then hover her hands above your body or make direct contact, focusing her energy on areas she feels are pertinent to your needs, using specific Reiki hand positions. Each person has their own response to the Reiki. Some will feel warm or tingling sensations. Others might experience deep relaxation or sleep.

Kristin Schnell, Reiki Practitioner & Certified Life Coach

headshot kristin  1 of 1  2Walking her own path of healing and transformation led her on an amazing journey of self-discovery back towards wholeness. In her early 20s, Kristin slowly realized how much of herself had shut down over the years to please others. The outcome of this was the complete dismantling of her understanding of who she was and and what she stood for. She became out of touch with her dreams, goals and aspirations. She fell further and further into a rut of martyrdom, negativity, and resentment.

A passionate desire to live her life differently motivated Kristin to dive into the healing arts, completing her certification as a Reiki Practitioner and Life Coach. She is excited to help others navigate their self-discovery and encourage a natural path of healing.
