s one of our Reiki practitioners likes to say, “Energy is my first language. I understand it more than words.”

Reiki is an energetic healing method developed from Japanese ideas about energy, where practitioners work with the universal energy that connects our higher self with everything around us. It’s most often used as a non-invasive tool for physical healing, mental, and spiritual growth, based on the premise that the body has the ability to heal itself.

Our purest intention is to replace negative energy with positive energy.

Here are a few ways we use Reiki here at Bodhi Wellness:

  • To promote harmony and balance, which contributes to the relief of pain, anxiety, and fatigue
  • As part of a treatment plan to alleviate depression symptoms
  • To enhance quality of life, including improvements to sleep patterns, self-confidence, and inner peace.
  • As an alternative to treat headaches, tension, insomnia, and nausea.

What should I expect?

A typical Reiki session lasts anywhere from 20 to 90 minutes, in a low-lit relaxed setting. We recommend wearing clean, loose-fitting, comfortable clothing, preferably in natural fabrics. Turn off your phone.

Let your practitioner know about any symptoms you’d like to address, if you have injuries, and whether there are any areas sensitive to the touch. The practitioner will move her hands around your body, touching lightly or holding them just above your body.

Afterwards, we recommend our clients re-integrate slowly back into your normal routine, taking at least 15 minutes to meditate, lie down, or even take a nap. Hydrate, feed your body, and reflect, and remain open to the possibility of healing.
