At Chez Gabrielle: Health + Beauty we offer Reiki to promote deep relaxation and stress reduction. Reiki is a form of healing that imparts "universal life energy" from the practitioner to the client using touch on or above the body. "Universal life energy", or chi, is limitless and available to everyone. When your "universal life energy" is high, then it is easier to be happy and healthy.


Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui in Japan in 1922. It has since become a global phenomenon, as Reiki masters "attune" their students, so that they have a connection to an unlimited supply of "universal life energy". The word Reiki comes from "rei", which means soul or spirit and "ki", or vital energy. The word encompasses the essence of Reiki, which is to transfer vital energy to the client so that their self-healing abilities are enhanced. Reiki is an excellent form of supportive care and can be combined with other forms of healing.


You can be sure that Reiki is a safe and nurturing treatment. You may feel very deeply relaxed as the practitioner lays their hands on your head, neck, and upper back or holds them just above your body. They will stay minutes in each position, allowing you to go to a very deep, restful place. Many people experience Reiki as a warm glowing energy that envelops them. 


Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit. Perhaps you are having difficulty sleeping, a Reiki treatment will give you deep relaxation that provides the rest that you've been lacking. Maybe you are obsessing over some problem in your life and you find that you suddenly have a novel solution to the issue that wasn't available to you before the Reiki session because you were trying too hard.  You may also just want to give yourself an energy session just for you. Whatever you reason, come have a Reiki session at Chez Gabrielle: Health + Beauty.
