Reiki (pronounced ray-key) healing is a practice that is probably thousands of years old. It is thought to have first been used by Tibetan Buddhist monks but was rediscovered in the late 1800’s by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist. The Usui system of Reiki is a very simple yet powerful form of healing which is taught by Master to student. Allison worked with her teacher for 10+ years to become a Master and teacher.
The word Reiki has its roots in two words: Rei means universal and Ki means life force or energy. Ki is the energy that all things are made of, like the Chinese Chi (as in Chi Gung or Tai Chi). Reiki energy is a healing energy that moves through the healer's hands and is spiritually guided to the recipient. It is a companion to traditional and herbal medicine, and has no religious requirements. Reiki relaxes the body and allows the body to heal itself.
A typical Reiki session lasts about an hour. Allison's particular style of Reiki is intuitive and gentle. Allison does not charge for the Reiki treatment itself, but accepts donations for her time. She has a portable table and will come to you!
