What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of spiritual healing energy and it is one of our world’s most precious and valuable resources. It has the power to affect our health and improve our state of well-being. This type of healing energy has been given to us, to help us walk through life, just as we have been given other natural energy resources like water and air. In fact, we are already accessing spiritual energy, whether we know it or not.
Reiki is a nurturing, safe and holistic treatment that reduces stress and promotes healing of the body, mind and spirit. There is a life force energy that flows through each of us and if this energy is blocked or low, then we are more likely to get sick and stay sick. Reiki has the ability to clear blockages in our energy field thereby allowing our bodies to heal naturally and bring us to our greatest state of well-being.
As a Reiki practitioner, I act as a channel for this magnificent and nurturing energy. Much like a magnifying glass concentrates the sun’s energy on one specific spot, I help concentrate Reiki energy on you – more specifically, your chakra centers – so that any blockages that exist in your energy field can be released.
Many prestigious and reputable hospitals now offer Reiki as a complementary and alternative medical treatment to their patients, including Children’s Hospital of New York-Presbyterian, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Yale-New Haven Hospital, to name a few.
This loving, positive energy is an amazing gift given to us by the Universe… we should use it!

Reiki can be received while you are laying on a massage table or sitting in a chair, fully clothed. A session typically lasts 60 minutes with the practitioner gently laying hands on you or directly above you, transmitting natural healing energy. Many people report the sensation of warmth, relaxation and serenity flowing through and around them while receiving a treatment. It is also not uncommon to fall asleep during a session.
During a Reiki session I can often sense where a person is out of balance and I will relay any helpful information I receive to you.
Archangelic Light is a spiritual energy healing modality that has its roots in Arcing Radial Light(C). This loving and powerful yet subtle energy promotes healing at the root of an issue whether it is emotional, spiritual or physical. Nothing can stop it from heading straight to the source, even if you are unaware of the source yourself (ie: you may have come for a treatment on your knee, when really you have a problem with depression you have not yet identified). This specific energy is gifted to us by the archangels, in association with the Divine Feminine, with the practitioner acting as the conduit. When I work with this energy, I always feel the presence of angels in the room.
Before receiving the energy, it is helpful to set an intention or affirmation (either silently or with my assistance). In this way, you are letting the angels know what you want and you’re preparing yourself to receive it. As with Reiki, you can lie on a massage table or sit in a chair, fully clothed, while receiving a treatment. I will connect to the Archangelic Light energy and then work in your energy field directly above your body. Some people feel temperature changes or see flashing visions or colors while receiving this energy, and you may experience some emotion. On the other hand, some people experience no sensations or emotions at all. The energy is working, regardless.
I often call on this energy when performing Reiki sessions. I especially like using this energy with children because it is so calming and soothing.
