what is reiki?

Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive form of energy work in which the practitioner uses their hands and the clients life force energy to activate mind, body, and spirit healing. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. There are many methods of reiki, most if which are non-touch. My lineage of reiki is of the New Usui school which incorporates very little touch.

Will receiving reiki interfere with my spiritual/religious practice?

No. Reiki is a healing technique. It is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. One can receive reiki regardless of spiritual or religious beliefs.

what can i expect during a reiki session?

Reiki sessions are typically 60-90 minutes and are usually performed on a client who is fully reclined comfortably on a massage table or chair. Clients are fully dressed in loose, comfortable clothing. Prior to session there is an intake process and a brief consultation to discuss wellness goals and intentions for the session. Sessions begin with aromatherapy, meditation, and breathing exercises to relax the client. Once the client is in a relaxed state the reiki is activated and the full session starts. Sessions may also include sound and crystal therapy.

During session clients may feel one or more of the following sensations: deep relaxation, sleepiness, heat, coolness, tingliness, heaviness, throbbing, or a variety of emotional responses. Some may not feel anything at all while others may feel such symptoms after the session is over.

Do i need MULTIPLE sessions?

It depends on your individual needs. For some, one session is enough while others may need a series of sessions.

is reiki for chronic or severe conditions?

If you have a chronic or severe condition it is always best to consult with a licensed medical professional as reiki is not meant to replace traditional medicine. However reiki is an excellent compliment to your wellness plan.

Ancestor reverence is the indigenous practice of acknowledging and honoring the deceased members of one’s bloodline.

what is an ancestor doula?

An ancestor doula is a type of psychopomp, or one that guides souls from one realm to another. My purpose as an ancestor doula is to assist those that have either transitioned or are preparing to transition. Through sacred ceremony and ritual I work as a spiritual guide to elevate the soul towards the ancestral realm. This work can be done as part of a family members end of life transition or after they have already passed on.

Such work is important as I have found through my practice that many of my client’s personal and familial dis-ease is due, largely in part, to deceased family members that are still earthbound and in need of spiritual elevation. Such spirits can be the cause of much turmoil, sickness, and chaos within one’s life and family.

What is a “sex centered” medicine woman?

A sex centered medicine woman as one who places sacred sexuality, sex ritual, and sex magic as the foundation for their healing practice. Sexual energy is the most powerful medicine in the Universe and is, therefore, at the center of all of my work as a medicine woman-whether its conjure, rootwork, or energy healing.
