What is Reiki?
Reiki is based on the idea that there is a universal life force energy that flows through all living things. When this energy is disrupted or blocked, it can lead to physical or emotional problems. Reiki is believed to help remove these blockages and restore the body’s natural balance and harmony. It encourages you to be in the present, to be relaxed and aware within yourself, and to allow energy to begin flowing in your life again.
Reiki at Spa Manzanita
The potential for Reiki to enhance your well-being, decrease stress, promote wellness, and encourage peace is unlimited. When you visit Spa Manzanita, pause at the door, take a few deep breaths, be mindful and open in the moment. This part of your journey is to honor you.
You will be face-up on the massage table, remaining fully clothed, except for your shoes, glasses, phone, and smart devices. Our Reiki Master, Sam, will use his hands to channel the Reiki energy into your body with the aim of promoting physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.
Many people report experiencing imagery and enlightenment, feeling relaxed and more at peace after a session. Some discover profound calmness and quieting of “mind chatter”. Others report physical improvements in conditions such as pain, anxiety, and depression. Each Reiki session will be a similar, yet a unique experience. It is important to note that Reiki should not be used as a substitute for medical advice or treatment.
After your session concludes, you are invited to reflect on the calm and well-being that you found during your session. We recommend you to take some added time in our Zen Room, perhaps enjoy an aromatherapy foot soak, and breathe before you step out our door and back into the external world.
