What does Simple Prism mean to me?

Prisms bring in light and projects rainbows, so like a prism, Reiki brings positive light and energy to others, creating calmness, relaxation, and healing. My wish for everyone is to live an easy and relaxed life: a simple life.


What is Reiki?

Reiki is a soothing treatment that transfers life force energy from the practitioner’s palms to the client, enhancing physical and emotional healing.

Life force energy is the flow of energy in and around our bodies, also known as “ki,” “chi,” or “prana,” meaning aliveness or life breath.  Our life force energy can become blocked from time to time due to daily wear and tear, stress, injury, or loss, which creates blockages, imbalances, or may cause emotional pain and stress. Reiki can assist to clear these issues, all while relaxing the mind and body. Reiki also realigns and restores the body’s energy during each session, creating calmness, balance, and an overall sense of ease. People tend to feel more centered and grounded after a Reiki session.


What are chakras?

Chakras are the seven spinning energy points in the body that create a column from the crown of the head to the base of the spine. It is said that negative energy can become blocked in the  aura or in certain chakras, which can manifest as illness or disease. For example, you become stressed at work and catch a cold. The stress manifests in your body and blocks your energy flow, causing you to easily become ill.  Reiki and crystal healing clear and balance the chakras while restoring the body's natural ability to heal itself so you can remain open and healthy.


Should I seek medical treatment if I am receiving Reiki?

Reiki is a form of alternative medicine and can work in conjunction with medical or psychological treatment. It is always recommended to see a licensed healthcare professional if you have a medical or psychological condition in addition to receiving Reiki treatments. Reiki works as a supplement to alternative methods of care such as medical drugs, surgery, psychological care, and chemotherapy.


What can I expect from a session?

The client lies on a massage table remaining fully clothed. The practitioner conducts healing through a series of hand positions on or around the body. Most clients feel very calm and relaxed, and occasionally fall asleep during a session, yet every client’s experience is different. Some can feel temperature change, some see colors or images, but most experience extreme relaxation. After the session, clients experience a sense of feeling grounded, more relaxed, and re-energized.  


What should I do after a session?

You can go about your daily activities but please drink plenty of water and take it easy. Sometimes sessions can leave you feeling a little dehydrated. Taking deep breaths the rest of the day will help bring more oxygen to your body, allowing your body to maintain the healing benefits from the session.


I typically use crystals during each session to boost the healing process. Each crystal has specific healing properties that can raise your energetic vibration. I use my intuition to choose crystals that will be of best service and place them on or around the physical body.

How often should I book a session?

You can book as many sessions as you see fit. If you have never had a Reiki session and just want to try one out, please do. A series of four sessions a month is recommended to recalibrate the body and settle certain issues. Chronic diseases and high stress may require more attention. Typically, other issues resolve for the client in addition to their initial concern. Reiki works on the entire body, soul, and aura, and healing can go even deeper than you expect. You can never get enough Reiki, so feel free to continue maintenance as needed.


How do I choose a practitioner?

Make sure to do your research! You should choose a practitioner that you are drawn to or gives you good vibes. Do they offer sessions that work with your schedule? Are sessions in your price range? Is the venue local? Perhaps ask around -- word of mouth is also a great resource, but definitely go with your gut!


What is Reiki yoga?

In Reiki yoga, a yoga instructor teaches a series of gentle yoga poses, holding a pose 3 to 5 minutes each, while a Reiki master performs Reiki by placing their hands on or near the client to help deepen the practice and assist the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Like Reiki, yoga can open the flow of energy in the body, can help align the chakras, and can remove energy blockages and imbalances. Reiki also provides a sense of balance, grounding, and calmness, and can increase awareness, clarity, and insight. Yoga and Reiki self-care ideals go hand-in-hand, and combining them together boosts the overall physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits. If you already feel great after a regular yoga class, just imagine how you could feel after a class that provides an extra energy boost!
