Reiki Sessions with Reiki Master Lori Belton are available by appointment with her directly.
Reiki is traditionally performed either in person or remotely. If you would like a remote session, we will call you at the time of your appointment. Please choose a quiet space where you can sit or lie down uninterrupted for your session. You might choose to lie on a white or light colored sheet.
Reiki can help you
Reiki is a spiritual healing practice that helps your system balance itself. Balance is always a good thing, because your body can only self-heal when your nervous system is balanced.
By encouraging your system toward balance, Reiki practice can help you in any situation, even when it isn’t the only help you need.
Reiki practice is unique in that you can receive a Reiki treatment or you can learn self practice.
Balance means different things at different times. If you are tired, you’ll feel refreshed. If you are anxious, you’ll feel serene. If you are distressed, you’ll feel comforted.
Instead of feeling overwhelmed, you’ll discover a renewed clarity and purpose. And these subjective changes come with physical changes associated with deep relaxation, such as a slower heart rate and easier breathing.
The first session usually brings improvement, and the benefits grow with repeated sessions. In emergencies or during intensive care, patients often show benefit within a few minutes.
Reiki supports your health care.
Reiki practice is safe, and cannot interfere with any medical care you are receiving.
Even when you are taking prescription medications, Reiki can help you. Reiki practice is safe, and the improvement you experience might mean you need less medication. That’s a good thing, but please don’t adjust your meds on your own. Always consult your physician before making changes in your medications.
How Does Reiki Help?
When you go to the doctor, she treats your complaint — sore throat, upset stomach, insomnia, whatever brought you to see her.
When you go to a Reiki practitioner, she treats you — the person suffering from the complaint (or the person who doesn’t have any complaints but knows she will if she doesn’t take care of herself). Ever wonder how Reiki healing helps?
How Reiki healing helps
The Reiki practitioner will likely place hands on the part of your body that hurts (with your permission, of course). But she won’t stop there. Most Reiki practitioners will also place hands on a series of hand placements on your head and the front and back of your torso.
You may notice sensations where the practitioner’s hands are. People often do. Heat and subtle movement are common experiences.
Or you may notice that area of your body become more open, feel more comfortable. If you had pain, it will likely diminish, and possibly disappear, even if the Reiki practitioner hasn’t yet touched the painful area.
Reiki practice is balancing
How is it possible for pain in one part of your body to be relieved when the Reiki practitioner’s hands are somewhere else?
No matter where the Reiki practitioner’s hands are, no matter how delightful that light contact may feel, the most important benefit of Reiki healing is what’s happening behind the scenes, inside your own body, where it’s remembering what it knows best — how to heal itself. And the first step in self-healing is to restore balance.
Unlike the oppositional approach of conventional medicine, with interventions that directly oppose problems, Reiki healing does not target symptoms or conditions directly.
The parasympathetic what?
Instead of opposing any complaint head-on, an approach which often brings unwanted side effects, Reiki practice is balancing to your whole system. When your body is balanced, your own self-healing mechanisms function at their very best.
While a Reiki hand rests lightly on a particular area of your body, whether or not there is a discernible local response, there is an overall response as your system shifts into parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) dominance.
This is important why?
When the PNS is dominant, the body is in rest-and-digest mode. This means its priority is to recover, to heal, to deeply nourish and restore itself. The body knows well how to do these things, but our busy lifestyle keeps us in reactive sympathetic nervous system (SNS) mode, where the body’s priority is coping (fight or flight), not healing.
Our bodies simply cannot cope and heal at the same time. It’s fight/flight or rest/digest — not both at the same time.
