What is Reiki Healing?

Reiki is an ancient Japanese energy healing practice that promotes balance and healing on all 4 major aspects of health: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. 


The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”.  This Alternative Medicine practice is a beautifully relaxing non-invasive healing modality that works on the energetic level of all living things. Reiki delivers profound benefits to people, animals and even plants!


Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage, nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy.


How does Reiki Healing work?

We are alive because life force energy is flowing through us. Life force energy flows within the physical body though pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the biofield or auric field. Life force energy nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of energy is disrupted, it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body. It is also felt on the mental, emotional levels.  

Who is Reiki for?

The main purpose of a  Reiki healing treatment  is not only to support the physical body, but also to promote a positive mind so you can experience more joy in life.


Some come to Reiki to help with their energy levels, managing the stress of daily life or when transitions are happening in their lives. Others will come to develop themselves spiritually and experience a greater sense of meaning in life. Many of my clients are well and want to stay that way, so this Alternative Therapy helps them to maintain that harmony so they can respond to the challenges differently.


After a treatment, most people feel calm and relaxed, and balanced.  Some clients report feeling energetic, clear-minded and productive.


Many who come for Reiki treatments or Reiki training realize that balancing their systems can help them to better cope with a wide range of health conditions, including stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain and infertility, to mention a few.

The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves.

These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body.

Reiki restores harmony by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force energy to flow in a healthy and natural way.

Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing modality that accesses the subtle energy body and facilitates movement and transformation of stuck, stagnant or negative energy that impacts the clients overall health or Chi/Prana.  This "Alternative Medicine" practice is actually one of the oldest known treatments for chronic stress, anxiety, pain management, grief and anger. 

Our in person Reiki healing sessions invite the client to fully relax on a comfortable heated massage table, in a quiet, relaxing private room. The client remains fully clothed, under a comfortable blanket. We offer lavender eye pillows (if desired) to facilitate complete restfulness during the session. There is a brief consultation prior to the session, and a review or discussion after. 


A "typical" Reiki session may involve light touch, specifically on acupuncture points or energetic meridians, or the practitioner may work solely on the energetic field surrounding the body.  Clients may experience a warmth, coolness, or glowing radiance sensation in their body.  Some have reported visualizing colors, shapes or a dreamlike state, with rich content and meaning.  Each person is different and will experience Reiki in their own way. However, you can rest assured that your Reiki session will be deeply relaxing, and will leave you feeling peaceful and centered.

Our "distance sessions" our conducted via phone / facetime / zoom (your choice) and work in the same way in-person sessions do, from the safety and comfort of your home. Due to the current Covid situation, we are experiencing a tremendous call for remote energy work! Many people find this hard to understand....but because energy work/ Reiki is not bound by the limitations of time and space, you can experience this remarkable and profound gift from anywhere in the world, at your convenience!  This works through our energetic/vibrational alignment and connection to one another - and all that is required (from you) is a willingness to receive love/healing/compassion/understanding, etc.

Reiki is Universal Life Force Energy and is not in conflict with any specific organized religion. It is accessible and available to all and is considered a complimentary therapy.

"Distance Sessions" involve a brief phone conversation to connect with one another, and your practitioner will walk you through how to get the most out of your session(s). Each experience is unique and designed to assist you in your specific needs/desires. 


Sessions are cumulative, deeply relaxing and beneficial for overall health, well being and mood.  Experience a deep energetic clearing and recharge from a Reiki Master. 

Standard Session: 1 hour, 15 min

Moira is literally the best Reiki Master! From the first time I met her she made me feel so comfortable and every time I leave a session I feel so much more relaxed and centered than when I went in. I have so much more mental, spiritual, and emotional clarity since I started seeing her and would recommend her to anybody that is interested in, or even slightly curious about, reiki.

"I met Moira at my very first beach yoga while she was the instructor. I knew then that she would be a constant in my life! She is an amazing being with lots of love, spiritual awareness and energy that is contagious! I recently had a Reiki session with her and not only was I amazed at what I had learned but felt a spiritual awakening within myself that I so desperately needed. I also received healing energy to my soul and body. If you ever have an opportunity to spend time with Moira, whether it's yoga, a cooking class or a Reiki session don't pass it up. Your life will be forever changed and grateful to have her in it!!! "
