REIKI 
experience WARM, hands-on, or hovering above your body, for deep healing

Reiki is a working with the natural energy in our bodies that all humans have; a DSC00768_2_2life-force energy that runs through us whether we are aware of it or not. We can access & feel this is we vigorously rub our palms together for several seconds & then hold the hands just an inch or two apart. The tingling or warmth you may feel is Reiki or Chi, which is your energy. Reiki Practitioners are trained in optimizing this energy which creates deep relaxation, stress reduction and minor and miraculous healings.

Your Reiki Session:
You are encouraged to drink plenty of water prior to and after your treatment. Your fully clothed session on a massage table, or if preferred, the ground with padding, will include hands-on touch to various parts of the body ranging from head to toe. Rebecca Yogarina Heartfly will follow the flow of the energy so there is no set pattern for your session. She is generating and extraordinary amount of chi, life force energy, through her hands, so you will feel as if there is a heating pad being placed on over your body which is extremely comforting, nurturing and relaxing. If you are uncomfortable with hands-on touch, good news for you! You may still receive a successful Reiki session yielding multiple benefits because this work can be done with hands just above the body without touching and is equally effective. Many people prefer the touch, so this is why most often Heartfly will have hands on the body, but there are times she’ll be doing work above the body, even with her clients who are comfortable with touch. You will still receive an equally beneficial session without any touch whatsoever. This treatment is designed to calm your central nervous system, relax mental and emotional tensions, ease minor body aches and pains, create healthier sleep patterns and reboot your body’s underlying intelligent energy that organizes, ignites and maintains the unique, dynamic, living system that you are.

This session is performed with you lying down on your back on a massage table, or on a pad on the floor or ground (lie on side body if you are pregnant). At some point, you will be asked to turn to your belly, face down, but if you don’t want to turn over when invited or you do and find you are uncomfortable, you are encouraged to let her know that you prefer to stay or return to your back and you will continue to receive equal quality healing for the remainder of your session. Again, most people prefer the touch contact on the back side of their body as well, but this is your session, and every single session is unique and following the energy for your greatest and highest healing. Rebecca Yogarina Heartfly is also a certified ThetaHealing® Practitioner and so Theta Healing is always naturally incorporated into the Cranial Sacral Therapy work as well.

*What is Reiki?
Reiki has electrical and magnetic qualities that can be measured. One of the most basic laws of physics, Ampere’s Law, explains the electrical and magnetic energies around the human body. Ampere’s Law says that when electrical currents flow through conductors, whether they are wires or living tissue, a magnetic field is produced in the surrounding space. Since living tissue – including the heart and other muscles, the brain, and other organs – conduct electricity, the laws of physics mean they create a magnetic field around the body, called the biomagnetic field.

Pulsing magnetic fields can jumpstart the healing of tissue, bone and other body parts. In the 1970’s, biomagnetic research showed that certain magnetic fields could stimulate the growth process in bone fractures that resisted healing. Soon after, the FDA approved Pulsing Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) for bone healing, in which wire coils placed near the fracture induce electrical current flows in the bone. The necessary frequency range is 7 Hz.

Pulsing magnetic fields from the hands of Reiki therapists are in the SAME frequency ranges that are optimal for stimulating tissue repair! Biologically optimal levels of electromagnetic frequencies for stimulating human tissue repair are all in what’s called the extremely low frequency (ELF) range. They have been documented as 2 cycles per second (Hz) for nerve regeneration, 7 Hz for bone growth, 10 Hz for ligament repair, and 15 Hz for capillary formation.

Reiki is healing energy, whether produced by a medical device or projected from the human body, and is energy of a particular frequency or set of frequencies that stimulates the repair of one or more tissues.

Dr. Mikao Usui founded Reiki as a natural healing modality in the late 1800’s and his successors, and Mrs. Hawayo Takata brought it to the United States in 1938.
