How does it work?
Reiki and Craniosacral Therapy are types of “energy work”. At the simplest level, it appears that these treatments help lessen the impact of stress, releasing tension from the entire system. Not only does a person move toward their own balance in body, mind and spirit, the body's own healing mechanisms often begin functioning more effectively.
What does a session consist of?
A complete session is offered to a fully clothed recipient who is lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably supported in a chair. A session will last from 45 – 60 minutes.
Treatments are offered through light, non-invasive touch with my hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso.
I will ask that you complete a basic form at your first session so that I can better understand your needs and track your response to the session.
I will explain the process, and ask if you have any specific wishes for treatment. Be sure to let me know if you have a health condition that might impact your lying flat on your back or if you have any areas that are sensitive to touch.
Especially if you have any shyness about being touched, ask me to show you the hand placements before starting so you know what to expect.
What should I do during my session?
As the session progresses, you will probably feel more relaxed. If you become uncomfortable, you can adjust your position at any time. Be sure to ask for anything that will add to your comfort, such as additional support under your knees or a blanket. This is your special time and I am here to help you.
Receiving energetic treatment is a wonderfully passive experience. Don't try to relax, just let the energy relax you. Your state will shift quite naturally as the session proceeds. Meanwhile, feel free to daydream, enjoy the background music, or simply observe your breath or the sensations of the therapy.
What might I experience?
Although people typically leave a session feeling refreshed, sometimes they notice feeling more tired than usual. This is not viewed as an adverse reaction, but rather as the body's natural healing response, something to be heeded. People commonly report a sense of calm and sleeping well after Reiki or Craniosacral treatments.
Please understand that energetic therapies are not a massage, nor should you expect a diagnosis of any kind. Sometimes I share specific thoughts if they have come through during your session. Mostly I have easy suggestions for after-care, such as drinking water and following your body's needs.
I have been going to Laura for energy treatment sessions since she first began her business, and have continued to attend as a regular! She is a bright ray of light in my life. She creates a loving, joyful environment and has such a lovely way of arranging her sessions. We usually start the session with a chat, she asks what she can assist me with, and we talk about treatment options such as Reiki, Craniosacral Therapy, and/or Sound Healing. I have received all three of these treatment options, and they are amazing.
The sessions are unique to what I need, and I leave feeling refreshed, renewed, and cared for. I have found these sessions helpful for releasing emotions, forgiveness and renewal in relationships, healing physical pain, working through past trauma, and sometimes simply to find balance and restoration. I gratefully attend these sessions as one of the ways to care for myself spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally. She is awesome and I adore her!
