What is Reiki?

The word” Reiki “combines two Japanese words Rei and ki which essentially means universal life force energy. This healing technique requires a Reiki practitioner to lay his hands on or above the body gently and allows the unseen life force energy flow through the palm of their hands to the recipient. This energy that is guided spiritually flows wherever it is required and helps balance and heal the subtle energies within the recipient’s body. It can be used to treat the whole body efficiently, using a simple, natural, and safe healing technique that has a beneficial effect on your mind, body, emotions, and spirit, bringing health and happiness.

Reiki during Pregnancy

Reiki can be used safely for pregnant women. It does not cause any harm to the mother or her unborn baby, thereby making it safe to be used not only during all stages of pregnancy, but also during conception and child birth.

The body of an expectant mother goes through a lot of changes during pregnancy; the energy balance in her body is under constant pressure, potentially making her “weaker” physically and emotionally. Taking a Reiki treatment during pregnancy helps balance her energies and cleanses body and spirit, helping her relax deeply and react quickly to all body changes and lifestyle. This is highly beneficial in helping her pregnancy to develop in a stable and natural manner.

Of course, you must seek doctor’s attention if you notice anything out of the ordinary.

Benefits of Reiki for Pregnant Women

Eases Physical Discomfort: Reiki healing is effective for relieving physical discomforts often associated to pregnancy. The human hormones associated with pregnancy often cause gastric problems during pregnancy. An energy healing treatment during pregnancy not only helps in relaxing the gastrointestinal walls, thereby reducing the sensation of nausea, but also aids in providing relief from hip, back or ligament pain that is often experienced by pregnant women as their pregnancy progresses. In fact, taking a Reiki treatment during pregnancy can relax you completely, greatly reducing fatigue, anxiety and sleep problems.

Provide Emotional Support: Juggling the demands related to the expectations of families, jobs or relationship with their partner can often make a pregnant woman quite stressed and tired. A Reiki treatment done during pregnancy not only helps an expecting mother stay grounded emotionally, but also instills serenity and peace and calms her fears related to pregnancy and delivery.

Make the Process of Delivery Easier: Reiki treatment given during the time of labor helps reduce pain associated with pelvic and back area to a great extent. This safe and natural treatment not only aids in reducing anxiety of the expectant mother during labor, but also helps create a peaceful and serene atmosphere for the baby. In fact, studies have shown pregnant women who practice Reiki during their pregnancy are less likely to need  having a C- section even if they happen to have gone through cesarean surgeries earlier.

Helps in Post-Partum Recovery: The body of a pregnant woman tends to undergo tremendous changes after delivery. Reiki treatment given at this point of time can prove to be highly beneficial in healing their physical and emotional levels and maintain their well-being during the first few weeks after child birth. Moreover, since the advent of the new baby can cause an emotional upheaval for a new mother, it can help her adjust to the new environment and take care of a baby more easily.

Helps the Baby Stay Healthy and Happy: When a Reiki treatment is given to a pregnant woman, it proves to be highly beneficial in helping build a strong spiritual relationship between the mother and her unborn baby. It helps the unborn baby stay calm and relaxed, but it is also said that sometimes it makes the unborn wriggle happily inside his mother’s womb. In fact, healing sessions that are done during pregnancy generally make the baby easygoing, thereby making it easy for young mothers to take care of their little ones in more easy and simple manner.

Reiki is a perfect option for all pregnant women who are looking for a more holistic way for treating both their mind and body. A Reiki treatment strengthens the body, emotions and spirit of a pregnant woman from within, giving her the strength to go through her pregnancy in a happy and healthy manner.

What is Emotional Release Healing Session?

With the Emotional Release Healing Session, you will understand how Emotional Blockages can create pain, malfunction and eventual disease. The Emotional Release Healing Session is a powerful and simple way to rid yourself of unseen baggage. Releasing trapped emotions often results in the sudden disappearance of physical problems, self-sabotage, and recurring relationship difficulties. Emotional release techniques work because they free up stuck emotional energy.
When a trauma happens, no matter how big or small, its memory lodges somewhere in your body. When this cellular memory is triggered, you get caught in a loop of painful thoughts and distress. As you let go of the emotional pain, your thoughts about the incident shift.

How does Emotional Release Healing Session work?

The Emotional Release Healing Session is based on using applied kinesiology, or muscle testing, which shows the body’s reaction to a thought or a question in the weakening or strengthening of its muscles. This technique helps us get “yes” or “no” answers from the body, and we use it to get information about imbalances that are causing emotional or physical problems. This works because all the information about our bodies is stored in the subconscious mind, which makes up about 95% of our mind. This is why Emotional Release Healing Session is so fascinating – it allows us to access and deal with information that we never would consciously realize is important! But it’s not just information that’s important, its energy.  Emotions are made of pure energy, and when we experience them, their energy can get trapped in the body. Each one of these is a block emotion, which interacts constantly with a certain part of your body, wherever it is trapped. It is the energy of this emotion that can then “interfere” with the natural frequency that exists in your body and begin to manifest as some form of physical or emotional issue. Once a trapped emotion is identified, we are able to release it using a magnet, and running it over the energy line in the body called the governing meridian.

In additional Life force flows within the physical body though pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body. Emotional Release Healing Session heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away.

What to expect in the session?

During the Emotional Release Healing Session you will lie or sit comfortably and the Emotional Release practitioner will place their hands on or near the body, allowing the life force energy to flow to balance and clear any energetic blockages. It all depends on you. Your subconscious will let us clear as much as it can handle. The more consciously open you are to healing the more we can accomplish.

Also, I need to know very little about your situations, so very little talking is required.  The less talking that we do, the more time I can spend on clearing energies for you.


After your session, your subconscious will need time to process what was cleared. This processing usually last two or three days, but sometimes as many as five. Everyone is different and has different processing experiences. Some people experience nothing, except that they feel better. Some people do experience a difference in feeling. These differences can range from feeling tired for a day or two, to flu symptoms, to feelings of the emotions that were released. This may seem like a hindrance, but remember it is a healing response and that is a very good thing. While you are processing, you are healing. One very important thing to do is take it easy on yourself and stay hydrated, the more you rest, the more your body can use its energy to heal and the faster you may process.
