Reiki treatments with Caroline are typically 60- or 90-minutes. Some people have done even longer! You lay on a massage table with clean sheets, maybe a bolster under your legs and a pillow for you head. You are not required to do anything special. You remove your shoes, but otherwise you will stay fully dressed (some people like to empty their pockets or remove a belt.) It feels very relaxing, almost dream-like at times.
Reiki is great for many different issues, including (but not limited to):
- Low back Pain
- Neck tension
- Low energy / fatigue
- Strife in relationships
- Feeling stagnant
- Burnt out / worn down
- “Floating head” feeling
- Creative blocks
- Lack of focus / productivity
Low back pain: Lower back pain is a difficult area to have an imbalance. It’s hard to ignore our bodies when those major muscles are acting up. Similar to acupuncture, Reiki works to move the energetic blockages that are stuck in that area. Caroline works intuitively and can offer specific guidance for what your body needs to maintain balance between sessions.
Neck tension / pain: Neck tension often lingers longer than necessary. We can self-massage or apply salves to reduce the discomfort without addressing the underlying issue. Caroline uses Reiki to release the tightness and increase flexibility within the localized area. As we allow our thoughts to soften, Caroline can address the underlying issue and clear away the layers of stress.
Anxiety: Anxiety can come out of nowhere. Life can also feel like a constant state of anxiety. It’s different for everyone, but you know the feeling. It’s hard to explain how exhausting it is to deal with. Caroline creates a space for your mind to relax, to let go and detox those emotions. You’ll feel like yourself again.
Fatigue / low energy: Occasionally feeling tired is normal. When tired is a constant– feeling exhausted, worn down, general fatigue, and running our energy too low– our immune system has a hard time fighting the flu, our emotions are all over the place, and it’s harder to deal with day to day stress. Caroline uses Reiki to dig into what’s really going on, clear it out, and make sure you are whole again. You deserve to feel more energized, more peaceful, relaxed, and balanced.
Relationship strife: Are you getting what you need out of those you hold close to you? Are you feeling heard? Understood? Loved? Let’s get your energy levels up, clear away any buildup from toxic relationships, and start attracting the nourishment you need and deserve.
Anger: Anger is not always a bad thing. It’s a very strong signal that something is “off” and that can be a powerful motivator for change and healing. However, when we rest in that energy for too long, it becomes toxic to ourselves, our pets, and our loved ones. Caroline uses Reiki to clear away any excess emotions, root out those patterns, and make room for what we need and want in our lives.
Creative blocks: Creative blocks are not fun. When you can’t write, draw, paint, or create in some way, the frequency of creation or personal expression is closed. To open the flow of creativity, Caroline uses Reiki to relax your mind, move and release any negative feelings or emotions that have built up around this issue, and expand your awareness to allow a free flow of vital energy back in.
Lack of focus / productivity: A lack of focus or productivity comes at the worst time. We have deadlines, but that work is not getting done. There’s the work itself and then the additional stress of not completing the task. Caroline uses Reiki to see what’s going on, clear away the excess stress and anxiety, and allow new ideas and fresh thinking to infuse the project.
Restlessness: The feeling of restlessness can make it hard to sit still, to focus, or to get things done that are right in front of us. The desire to finish, get going, do something else, or leave this place all together can be so strong, it’s hard to get out of our heads. Caroline uses Reiki to clear away the excess mental energy, indecision, or need for action. As the mind relaxes, one can be clear enough to allow new ideas and opportunities to surface.
“Floating head” feeling: The feeling of a floating head, like a balloon drifting above your shoulders, making your consciousness is way out of your physical body, and making time stand still. Caroline uses Reiki to bring the body’s natural flow of energy down to your feet and to reconnect the systems that have momentarily fallen out of balance.
Worn down / burnt out: You’re feeling worn down, stretched thin, at the end of your rope, or just plain burnt out. Any way that you describe it, your personal reserves are running low. It’s harder to deal with normal levels of stress, emotions can be all over the place, and our immune systems are functioning lower. Caroline uses Reiki to push through the dense emotions and allows your body and mind to come back to the place of rest and restore.
Feeling stagnant: Feeling stagnant is a hard state to be in. Everything feels the same, bland, and uninspired. Stuck patterns of thought or emotion can block fresh ideas, new influences, curiosity, and creative ways of thinking. It can be hard to shift alone. Caroline uses Reiki to move those stagnant patterns and clear space for lighter thinking, exploration, and a shift in mindset.
