What is a Reiki session like?

Reiki sessions vary depending on what you are coming in for. If you would like relaxation, the session starts with you lying on the massage table fully clothed. You may cover with a blanket or not. You can leave your shoes on or take them off. The practitioner will place their hands on or above your body in various positions that cover some of the endocrine organs of your body.

You may not experience anything, or you may feel warmth, tingling, pulsating feeling, emotion, or feel cool. Each experience is unique and varied. Some have had amazing healing results both physical and/or emotional.

Some clients that have had difficulty relaxing completely during a massage, have been able to relax during a Reiki session. The body takes the Reiki energy and uses it where needed. A session usually lasts from 1hour to 1 1/2 hours. Or can be received in a few minutes.

I frequently use Reiki in my regular massages or in Chair massage if client agrees to having it used. Reiki has been used with Hospice clients, in hospitals before surgery, in many areas.

What is a Chair massage like?

A massage chair is a portable chair that the massage therapist can have in their office or take with them to various locations to do massage. The client is fully clothed but may remove shoes. Your face rests in a head rest and then body is supported by a cushion in front.

You sit on a seat and knees are bent or legs can be in front or at sides of the leg rests. Hands and arms are brought forward resting on the arm rest. The therapist can adjust the chair for comfort. After you are seated comfortably in the chair, the massage therapist will begin to do massage on back, neck and shoulders, sometimes head, then arms and hands. Some will do stretches.

The chair massage can be in short increments of time, or can be done for 1/2 hour. Frequently, chair massage is charged $1.00/minute. Businesses can have 2 hour segments of time and have their employees come and have a 5 to 10 minute massage, allowing each person to have massage. Even that amount of time can make a large difference in how one feels and a benefit for the employer as well. Clients can schedule chair massage in the massage therapist’s office as well.

What are essential oils used for?

Essential oils can be used in massage when mixed with oils. Many every day products have essential oils in them. Tea tree oil, rose oil. Some are duplicated and not “pure” oils. Young Living is very particular about the quality of their oils. They are distilled and closely monitored during harvesting of the plants and the processing.

For my own personal use, I use Young Living Lavender oil as a very relaxing oil, have applied to my feet at night to help me sleep.

There are books that tell what some people use specific oils for. Young Living offers a wide variety of products both oils and nutritional supplements as well.

Look at the YL Essential Oils web site for more information on the oils.

There are two techniques using Young Living Essential Oils. One is the Raindrop Technique, which drops certain oils on the back and light massage is used to spread the oils. The other is VITAFLEX TECHNIQUE, which uses Young Living Essential Oils when doing a type of reflexology/massage to the feet and legs. It spreads the oils and applies them to the reflexology areas of the foot.

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas on the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help with many health problems in a natural way, a type of preventative maintenance. Reflexology has been used for many years.

Each foot represents half of the body, the left and right foot corresponding to the left and right side of the body. The inside of the foot, the great toe side corresponds with the center of the body *the spine* and the outer side of the foot, corresponds with the outer part of the body, shoulder, hip, etc. An example of reflexology response; if your massage therapist is working with a certain area of your toes, and you have sinus congestion, your nose may start to run. I have had this response as well.

What are chakras?

Chakras are energy centers in the body. There are several but seven main ones. The crown chakra is located at the crown of the head, the brow chakra or the Third Eye Chakra is between the eyebrows on the face. The Throat chakra is in the throat area.
