Reiki & Hypnosis

Definition of Reiki

Reiki is a spiritual healing art. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. A Reiki session usually is between 60 and 90 minutes in length. The session is performed by a Reiki Practitioner (RP or RMT) using specific Reiki hand positions. During a Reiki session, the client is fully clothed while comfortably reclining on a massage table or seated in a chair. A Reiki session aids in stress reduction and it is almost always a very relaxing experience. Reiki sessions or classes are a great investment in yourself.

Reiki is:
– A subtle and effective form of energy healing using spiritually guided life force energy (Rei-ki)
– Practiced in every country of the world
– Being used in many setting including hospitals, hospice, as well as in private practice and in self-care
– A wonderful complementary modality in a personal wellness or healing program

Reiki is not:
– Affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice
– New, it is thousands of years old (at least)

Defining qualities of Reiki:
– A practice of transmitting healing energy through the hands
– Passed on through the attunement process
– The energy is not guided by the practitioner, but the energy has it’s own innate wisdom to guide itself.
– Reiki energy is not based on belief, faith or suggestion.

A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress, and can help support the body to facilitate healing on all levels- physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. A session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilized for one’s own personal wellness, not just illness. A Reiki I class is a great gift to give to yourself.

The Reiki Ethics

Reiki is a unique healing method. It requires that you touch another person. Not just with your hands but also with energy. You share in the loving energy of the source that God has made available to all. It is a unique and special gift.

Many people coming for healing are vulnerable. They may be vulnerable emotionally or physically. It is imperative that you do not violate that trust that they place in you. If a person is experiencing emotional release, as a result of the treatment it is essential that you maintain their confidentiality and respect their lives.

Reiki principles as follows:

Just for today I will count my blessings

Just for today I will not worry

Just for today I will not anger

Just for today I will do my work honestly

Just for today I will be kind to every living creature






Listen.  Listen to what your body is telling you. Each and every cell in your body is full of innate wisdom that is being communicated to you constantly.  All you have to do is learn to listen.  It is truly amazing what you can learn if you will just listen to what your body has to say!

Whether physical or emotional in nature, disease in general, and pain in particular can be ways for your body to send you messages.

This listening and getting to know the uncomfortable place is just exactly the opposite of what most people want to do.  The tendency is to hide, ignore, push away or numb uncomfortable feelings. Yet, the more one ignores or actively numbs a painful place or feeling, the “louder” the body will get.  It is only in bringing awareness to the affected area and listening to it, that true healing is possible.

It is often in exploring and listening to the uncomfortable place that it will begin to diminish or release.  Its message conveyed, it can now let go.

Paul Aurand created this wonderful healing process that I was taught nearly 10 years ago. It is a gentle but extremely powerful journey of healing …the combination  of Reiki and Hypnosis is a pathway to health,happiness and general well being.
