Reiki Healing and Energy Clearing at Shanti Wellness Therapies in Albuquerque
by Martyne Backman
What is Reiki healing?
Reiki healing draws from the Universal Life Force Energy that is all around us. When activated and used for purposes of healing, Reiki works to address any imbalances in the physical body, mind and spirit.
Hands on healing – Typical treatment session
Reiki energy is drawn to the clients energy centers by the practitioner’s hands who may touch the body or hold their hands just above the body. The recipient generally feels the energy as a sensation of soothing warmth which penetrates and relaxes all parts of the body. The person receiving the treatment remains fully clothed with shoes off and is comfortably lying on a massage table. A typical session takes 60 to 90 minutes.
Reiki can also be done remotely as distance healing.
Unblocking and balancing the chakras – How Reiki works
The chakras are the energy centers of the body and are found in every joint and major organ system. Each person has hundreds of chakras, but the practitioner will generally focus on about twenty of them.
Reiki removes any energetic blockages that may be caused by injury or stress including mental and emotional stress. By clearing the root cause of pain or dysfunction, Reiki facilitates and speeds up the body’s ability to heal itself.
Gentle, effective, drug-free healing therapy
Reiki is used to relieve pain, to reduce inflammation and speed healing. It increases energy, reduces stress and gives a feeling of deep relaxation, calming the mind and reconnecting communication paths between the left and right sides of the brain.
Some conditions where Reiki healing would be recommended
· feeling overwhelmed, stressed-out, out of balance
· headaches, especially from tension or stress
· nasal and lung congestion and/or asthma
· common cold and sinus pain
· back pain as well as joint and muscle pain
· pain from a recent fall or other type of accident
· emotional trauma resulting from death of a loved one
· need to relax the mind and body; not getting enough restful sleep
· chronic pain from old injuries
Reiki healing for pets
Just like humans, pets have energetic chakras. They are even more compromised by stress, as their mission is to serve us by absorbing stress from us, their human companions. Our cats and dogs can both benefit from Reiki treatments. Reiki for pets can be done in person or remotely as distance healing.
In her Reiki treatments, Martyne incorporates healing frequencies and some of the techniques from Matrix Energetics.
