Reiki is a cutting-edge, stress-releasing energy practice that enables your entire system to release distracting layers of physical, mental, and/or emotional tension.
It has long been known that we possess resources that we habitually fail to use. Reiki has proven to be an effective means of helping you to regain access and live with greater connection and balance with your mind, body and spirit.
What most surprises me is how well I respond to Reiki. It’s a new approach for me, and I feel totally transformed. — DC
Signs we might be falling out of balance
We don’t have enough energy to keep up with our busy lives.
Our perspectives narrow, and daily problems feel much bigger than they actually are.
We’re more easily distracted or dissatisfied.
Our world feels contracted and we feel weaker.
A powerful restorative process
Reiki replenishes the optimum flow of life-energy throughout your whole physical, mental, and emotional system. The American Hospital Association has ranked Reiki among its top three complementary therapies.
Reiki was popularized in 1922 by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist monk, and is valued today for its practical applications and wide-ranging effects.
Evidence -based research
Studies conducted at Harvard and Drexel Universities, along with other leading university hospitals and clinics throughout the world continue to explore its many benefits (PDF). These range from accelerating the healing process in countless diseases to enriching overall mental, emotional, and physical wellness.
My experience with Lori gave me a chance to learn that my body actually can relax … it was such a calming time and I wanted to stay all day.
Experience it for yourself
While research continues, more people every day are experiencing for themselves its remarkable effectiveness in many areas:
depression and anger
mental blocks and confusion
Only you will know how well Reiki can work for you.
In-person and remote sessions available.
How it works
Reiki is a technology that’s older than science itself, and while studies continue, the explanation still remains to be seen. According to University of Minnesota’s Center for Spirituality & Healing:
“Although there is increasing research evidence documenting the effects of Reiki (such as lowered heart rate, blood pressure, and stress hormones; increased immune strength), we have only broad theories as to what causes these effects or the pathways through which the healing occurs.
“The multileveled, rapid response to Reiki suggests a complex process that engages many body systems, simultaneously or in quick succession, shifting the body from domination by the ‘fight or flight’ (stress) response to the relaxation response, and supporting the body's own healing mechanisms.”
I felt a layer of stress leave my system, like a wave of tension being released.
What to expect during a session
Reiki sessions last from 60 to 90 minutes. After a brief orientation and review of your interests, concerns and/or goals, you’ll come to rest comfortably on a massage table with only your shoes removed. Wearing loose, comfortable clothing is ideal.
As you relax, our Reiki practitioner will slowly move her hands slightly above your body without touching, except if a light brief touch is indicated.
As Lori gently guides through the stages of the process, you may notice a variety of sensations that range from pleasant pulsations, tingling, feelings of releasing pressure or tension, or perhaps nothing other than wonderfully deep relaxation. All you need to do is relax and receive Reiki as it works to help your own energy soften and regain its natural flow.
If you want to take your Reiki experience to the next level, Lori is available for post-Reiki coaching sessions. These will guide you closer to a place of greater balance within your own body, mind and emotions.

I don't think I really knew what self care actually meant until Lori and I began working together.
