What is Reiki


Melissa was trained in Reiki more than 16 years ago by a traditional Usui Reiki Master in upstate NY.  Since then, Melissa has grown as a healer and loves to use this healing method on clients that wish to get a deeper, non-invasive healing.


Reiki is a treatment that consists of laying the hands on the body in a prescribed pattern and allowing the energy of life to flow through the hands to the client being treated. The primary element of life energy is the essence of this healing modality. Because of this, Reiki can be used in any situation where there is a desire for and openness to healing. Unfortunately, we know a small amount about this element of life energy. It is in the practice of consciously being with this energy that we learn and become more aware. In this form of treatment, this process is simple but yet powerful. From the vantage point of the practitioner, Reiki is self-treatment as well as treatment of others within our circle. We extend this healing out to all that understand and want energy healing as a way to deepen the connection to a source within. We as humans are pure energy. If you can align with this concept, then life energy is essential and the most fundamental element of the human energy system. When we don’t have enough energy, we suffer because we cannot carry out our life functions or we become out of balance. As we know, balance is essential. Being trained from a Usui System of Reiki Healing Master, it is essential to focus on self-treatment and healing. As we work within the realm of others, we, in turn, work on ourselves. We all get healing from a session through the energy that passes through the practitioner, being the conduit, to the client to receive it to heal.
