The gentle healing art of Reiki draws on universal life energy to benefit people and animals of any age and in any state of health.  Reiki offers comfort, nurture and support for the good health and balance of your mind, body and spirit. Reiki is an ancient, Eastern, healing art that promotes healing and helps to balance and energize you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Reiki classes are held here at the studio on a regular basis and beginning this fall 2017 I will be starting a new program to help those that want to learn Reiki and could benefit from it but for whatever circumstance cannot afford to attend a class. It’s called the Reiki Gratitude and Giving Program and each Reiki class I hold I will offer a space to a qualifying student.  The fee for this space in class will be to volunteer his or her new Reiki skills for a set amount of time at a designated location. Currently the volunteer work location will be the Grey Muzzle Manor in Fleetwood, a sanctuary for senior animals and animals with special needs which has also become a place for healing of human souls.

Those interested in this program would need to submit to me a letter of interest and a brief explanation of their circumstances.  A candidate will be chosen from those letters and an interview process will follow. Further details about the program will be given during the interview process.

Submit your letter to Christina at healingarts42@gmail.com or mail to Integrative Healing Arts Studio, 546 Penn Ave, West Reading, Pa. 19611.

Integrative Reiki

Reiki is a powerful natural healing system that is complete and whole in itself but also acts synergistically with all other healing methods. As an eclectic being that is drawn to many other forms of energy work and I like to integrate these forms into my Reiki sessions. I felt the need to differentiate between a more traditional Reiki and Integrative Reiki since many of these other forms are not part of the traditional system and I want my clients to be able to have a choice in what type of energy work they receive.

The Integrative Reiki I offer is my own signature method which includes all of the principals of traditional Reiki but integrates the use of crystals, sound healing, and other intuitively guided energy work (often referred to by my clients as “just do your thing :Customized aromatherapy is also included if desired. After an integrative Reiki session we discuss anything that may have come up during the session and I offer intuitive guidance.

Sessions are available in 30, 45, or 60 minute time slots.  Traditional Reiki sessions can also be scheduled.

Integrative Massage

My signature Integrative Massage is a therapeutic method for relaxation, circulation, and relief of chronic pain and discomfort that combines principals of massage & bodywork including physical, emotional, and spiritual elements to support a holistic mind-body-spirit approach to wellness. While my Integrative massage is therapeutic in nature, it is generally good for those that prefer light or medium pressure.  If you prefer a massage that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue you may choose a deep tissue upgrade for $15. With a deep tissue upgrade you will get the focus needed on deeper layers as well as the energy work included in my Integrative Massage.(Deep tissue does not mean hard pressure, see deep tissue massage on service page for more information) 

Some of the things that are incorporated into my integrative massage sessions are crystals, aromatherapy, Reiki, acupressure, sound healing, chakra clearing and balancing, and any other modalities and techniques that I am trained in and may be guided to use. I am Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork by the NCBTMB.

When you come for your session you will fill out a health history form and we will also discuss your goals and main focus areas for the session.  Based on what we discuss I will base the session off your goals, my knowledge, and intuitive guidance.  While Integrative Massage is one of my signature services, If you prefer, you may choose a Therapeutic Massage which is more clinical in nature and does not incorporate energy work. Any service you choose will be specific to your individual needs.  For a full list of the services that are provided here at the studio you may visit the services and rates page .

The Gentle Healing Art of Reiki

Many ancient cultures embraced the belief that life energy flows through the body, deeply affecting our entire being. Current research strongly suggests that energy does extend throughout and beyond the physical body, and that disruptions or imbalances in its flow correlate to physical, mental and emotional illness. The healing art of Reiki (pronounced “RAY-key”) addresses these imbalances to support your good health and well-being.

What is Reiki? Reiki is a Japanese word meaning universal life energy. It is a gentle method of hands-on healing that taps into the energy referred to as ki in Japan, chi in China, and prana in India. The practice of Reiki is based on the teachings of Mikao Usui, who practiced and taught healing techniques in early twentieth century Japan.

Reiki is not massage, hypnosis or a tool for diagnosing illness. Reiki is a technique that addresses both chronic and acute conditions, gently and powerfully promoting balance among all the body’s systems and the regenerative processes of body and mind.

What is a Reiki session like? To receive Reiki, most people lie on a table fully clothed, so wear comfortable clothing. Little or no pressure is applied and no oils are used. The technique is so adaptable that you can receive it in almost any setting, in a chair or hospital bed, and through casts and bandages. Still and focused, the practitioner will simply place his or her hands on or above your head, shoulders, back, chest, stomach and limbs. Practitioners routinely follow a series of hand positions, but can place their hands anywhere you would like them to, for example over an injury or other area of discomfort. The teachings say that universal energy flows, not from the practitioner but rather through the practitioner, to you. You will receive the amount of energy you need to bring your mind and body into balance.

Though Reiki techniques appear simple, the effects can feel profound. Most people experience deep relaxation. You may also feel tingling, pulsing, a feeling of warmth and comfort, or you may fall asleep. Results can be subtle. Some recipients say they feel little during the session, but afterwards enjoy a sense of calm and well-being, and a deep, restful sleep. It is possible you could experience powerful sensations or emotions during or after a session. Your practitioner will want to hear about your responses to the degree you are comfortable sharing them.

Used by a rapidly growing number of hospitals all over the world, Reiki complements medical treatment, psychological counseling and massage therapy. Reiki is appropriate for patients in any state of health and is easily practiced in all hospital environments from outpatient clinic to intensive care.

Reiki is gentle enough to offer support and reduce the discomforts of pregnant women and can help ease the pain of childbirth. Many hospitals have Reiki practitioners available to a range of patients, including those with cancer or recovering from surgery. Reiki is especially appreciated in hospice care due to its ability to alleviate pain and anxiety for both patient and family members.

Studies of Reiki show significant reduction of pain, including cancer pain, following treatment. Patients also report increased feelings of relaxation and a sense of well-being. One study cited improvement in immune and nervous system function and increased mobility in patients with conditions such as multiple sclerosis, lupus and fibromyalgia. At Portsmouth Regional Hospital in New Hampshire, surgical patients decreased their use of pain medications, stayed for shorter periods, and reported increased satisfaction with pre and post surgical Reiki sessions.

What Reiki can mean for you? Reiki can alleviate pain and stress, and promote restful sleep, healing and relaxation. Relaxation in itself promotes a host of benefits for the mind and body including a heightened sense of well-being, release of painful muscle tension, and relief from anxiety and depression. In addition, relaxation has been shown to help restore immune function and improve circulation, enhancing healing throughout your body.

Reiki is not only healthful, but pleasurable. One of its greatest benefits may be the opportunity to let go and enjoy the experience of being nurtured and cared for.

 

Schedule a Reiki session today and if you feel so lead you can even learn how to do Reiki yourself and share this wonderful healing art to benefit yourself and your loved ones.
