Traditional Usui Reiki
Reiki is a gentle energy (ki) practice using light (and in some cases no) touch.
Reiki translates as:
Rei: holy, nature spirit, gift
While we are working with this subtle energy with our every action and breath, the Usui system helps one to enhance their connection with the energy as well as one’s ability to apply it to themselves and others to support health and well-being on all levels.
Reiki has no side effects or interactions, and may be used in conjunction with any other treatment, medication, or therapy. This gentle therapy can be safely performed on people who’s medical conditions could be complicated by massage or reflexology. Reiki is a clothed bodywork practice that can be experienced sitting up or laying down. It is not a substitute for other forms of care and is not a part of any religion.
Danielle teaches the Traditional Usui method, which has been practiced and taught numerous ways since it’s founding in 1920s Japan. There are many methods and practices that fall under the heading “Reiki”, and even the basic definition of what it is may vary greatly from one “Master” (teacher-level practitioner) to another. No matter which style or variation you choose, you will start a rewarding practice to enjoy for years to come. And yes, I accept students in to my program no matter whom they studied with or when.
At present, all of our locations are mass-transit accessible.
