"Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing." -William Lee Rand
Developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui, Reiki Energy Work has spread over the world and adapted to many different cultural traditions. It uses the ancient spiritual method of "laying on hands" to accomplish the transmission of universal energy. While Reiki is not intended as a substitute for conventional medicine, many thousands of people have found it helpful in building physical, spiritual and emotional resilience, as well as being deeply comforting.
At our practice we typically offer a client a free Reiki session after the first six sessions of Medical Hypnotism. Additional sessions can always be purchased.
Our Reiki Services are provided by the Rev. Dr. Bates, a well-known Reiki Master Teacher with over twenty years of experience. She provides individual Reiki Sessions, Reiki Training, Placements and Ignitions in the Holy Fire® III system for all levels.
Dr. Bates calls her approach LifeWays Reiki because she emphasizes that Reiki is a practice that can transform all areas of a person’s life and is not just relaxing on a padded table.
In addition to private sessions in our office, Dr. Bates will also do home, hospital, and nursing home visits, Animal Reiki for companion animals of all kinds, and Distance Reiki (with computer video connection if desired).
