Reiki

Eleanor provides massage therapy services in Burlington with value-added Reiki healing.  Your session will take place in a warm and caring environment.  After treatment some report feeling extremely relaxed, much lighter and rejuvenated.

Reiki translates literally from Japanese as “Universal Life Force Energy” which permeates everything.  The practitioner places hands on or near the body, intending healing for the whole body physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.  Reiki facilitates the body’s natural healing ability, shifting old and new issues, increasing vitality and clarity.  Everyone experiences Reiki differently; most feel a sensation of warmth or tingling, some experience visions or flashes of colour, others simply feel relaxed and sleepy, while others still feel invigorated and inspired. Stress and pain relief occurs often, at least temporarily, and some may be encouraged to take active steps in their lives to make concrete changes.

This holistic modality is becoming more widespread and accepted in the Western medical community, often integrated in cancer support, as the gentle touch is non-invasive.  While science still questions the phenomenon, subjective evidence is undeniable; Reiki simply feels great!  There is no promise or guarantee that someone will be relieved of any ailment, especially if treatment is entered with a closed mind, however many experience enhancement of well-being in some form. Illness occurs when the body, mind & spirit become unbalanced, and Reiki is a means of empowering us to incorporate harmony on all levels.

Reiki is non-denominational, meaning anyone can receive or learn how to practice it.  The overall philosophy encourages a mental shift in those who are willing to embrace positivity.  This comes from the founder of Reiki, Dr. Mikao Usui Sensei:

Reiki Healing Hands

“Just for today, do not anger.
Just for today, do not worry.
Honour your parents, teachers, and elders.
Earn your living honestly.
Show gratitude to every living thing.”
