Reiki

 

What is Reiki?

Reiki, founded by Mikao Usui, is a Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction. It is pronounced “Ray” “Key”. Reiki is being used by leading medical institutions, including major cancer treatment centers, as an alternative therapy.

Reiki works with universal life force energy – the energy in and around all living things. When this energy is blocked, it causes an imbalance often leading to discomfort or disease. When the energy is flowing more smoothly, we often feel better.

Here is some basic information on Reiki:

  • Reiki allows loving, healing energy to flow through you.
  • Reiki is NOT a religion. No specific religious beliefs are necessary.
  • Reiki is spiritual and allows you to have a deeper connection to yourself.
  • Reiki is open to all who would like to explore this beautiful, healing energy.

What are some of the benefits of Reiki?

  • Reiki can reduce your stress levels. Stress is a leading contributor to many diseases including heart disease and high blood pressure. Reducing your stress improves your health.
  • Reiki may help relieve muscle tension by releasing blocked energy.
  • Reiki can provide better sleep at night, and it is important to have adequate sleep to allow your body and mind to function properly.
  • There are no dangerous side effects to having a Reiki treatment.
  • Reiki can be used to help infants as well as seniors.
  • Reiki can be used on pets. Dogs and cats love Reiki treatments!
  • Reiki can complement other treatments you receive. Leading cancer institutions offer Reiki as an alternative therapy in addition to radiation and chemotherapy.
  • Reiki is easy to learn and it is self-healing.

How does Reiki work?

Reiki works by having universal life force energy flow from the person providing the treatment to the person receiving the treatment.  It is done by having the Reiki practitioner gently hovering their hands on the person receiving the treatment. The person receiving the treatment can be seated in a chair or reclining. Unlike other treatments, because universal life force energy is flowing, both the person receiving the treatment and the person providing the treatment both receive healing during a treatment, and the practitioner’s energy is not depleted. It is self-healing. A session usually begins at the top of the head (where stress is often accumulated) and from there the Reiki practitioner can lay their hands gently (as needed) on the shoulders, arms, heart, abdomen, knees, and feet.

How is Reiki learned?

Reiki is taught by a person who has been trained as a Reiki Master Teacher who provides you with attunements at each level. There are 3 levels of Reiki:

  • Reiki Level One where you learn basic Reiki healing treatments for yourself and are shown techniques for helping others. You receive the first 4 attunements.
  • Reiki Level Two where you further learn how to work on others and are introduced to Reiki symbols which enhance your Reiki treatment. You receive 2 additional attunements.
  • Reiki Level Three (Master Practitioner) in which the last 3 Reiki symbols are learned and where you receive the final 4 Reiki attunements.

Moonflower Yoga offers Reiki training on all 3 levels of Reiki. Each training session also includes an extensive 30-40 page training manual with illustrations so that you can practice Reiki at home. See below for our next available Reiki training session or Reiki Healing Circle.

What is a Reiki Healing Circle?

A Reiki Healing Circle is a wonderful way to be introduced to Reiki. NO prior Reiki experience is necessary, and it is open to all! In a Reiki Healing Circle, one person in the center of the circle receives a Reiki treatment from the others around the circle. The person in the center is usually reclining. The other participants will gently hover their hands on the recipient on either the top of the head, shoulders, abdomen, knees, or feet. For those with Reiki experience, they can apply what they have learned in their Reiki training sessions to help the person receive a lovely treatment. For those with no Reiki experience, we will show you how to do some basic positions. Each person has an opportunity to move to the center of the circle and receive a relaxing Reiki treatment.

Why Reiki at Moonflower Yoga is special

At Moonflower Yoga you receive personal attention in a loving, caring environment.   This is especially true during a Reiki training session.  Moonflower Yoga owner, Nancy Weshkoff, who is a Reiki Master Teacher, keeps the training session sizes very, very small so that you can receive a lot of one-on-one personal attention during the training.   When you are learning how to do a Reiki treatment, she is alongside you helping you with the hand positions needed.    Nancy also provides you with a very informative and illustrated, 30-40 page handbook for each level which gives you step-by-step instructions on working with Reiki energy.

Reiki is an ancient technique for stress reduction and relaxation. Leading medical institutions are now offering Reiki as an alternative therapy to patients with chronic illness. Reiki is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the concept that life force energy flows through us.  If this energy is low, then we are more likely to feel ill and have higher stress levels.  If it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

In this special 4 1/2-hour training session, you will learn the basics of Reiki and receive a Level One certification.  The ability to perform Reiki is passed on during an “attunement” performed by a Reiki Master Teacher, and allows the student to tap into life force energy to improve one’s health.  This training session will be taught by Nancy Weshkoff, owner of Moonflower Yoga and Reiki Master Teacher. At the end of this training, you will be able to do basic Reiki on yourself and others and will have an opportunity to practice giving a Reiki treatment to a fellow student in the training, as well as receive a Reiki treatment.  You will also be provided with an informative, 30-40 page, illustrated handbook to take home with you as a great reference tool.   There will be a food break around midway through the training with delicious homemade vegan snacks.

Special Introductory Price: $125 per person for this 4 1/2-hour training session which includes the food and the informative handbook.
