Reiki, pronounced "RAY-KEY" is a safe, holistic, ancient form of energy healing that is totally natural and feels great! Reiki energy in and of itself is "wise" energy meaning it goes where its needed and can addresses everything from emotional, mental, physical to spiritual issues. Reiki is non-invasive and uses the universal vital life force energy that is all around us to balance our own energy centers (chakras) so that they flow harmoniously which leads to better health, a positive outlook on life, and an overall sense of well being.
Everything in our world and universe, whether its a person, a tree, a piece of furniture or an animal is made up of cells and inside of each and every cell is energy. In our bodies we have several chakras which are our energy centers (think energy wheels). Throughout our lives many things can effect these energy centers, such as trauma, stress, fear, anxiety, anger.... These can cause energy to get blocked and if they stay blocked it can make the body more susceptible to illness, disease and other not-so-pleasant maladies.
Many studies have been done and as time goes on the science world is developing more and more quantum-measuring technology machines that are testing, proving and exploring what exactly is happening during a session. What is known for sure is that there are multiple types of energy waves (electromagnetic, bio-magnetic, micro, scalar...) and its being shown that with intention we have the ability with the universal wise Reiki energy to move, balance and activate our own and each others energy field, even when we are across the world from one another (long-distance healing)! Remember that energy flows where attention goes (Laws Of Attraction).

For those who are not sure if they "believe" in Reiki, I offer you this:
How many of you guys know what a X-rays and MRI's are? Ok, how many of you know the exact science behind how these machines work? That's ok, most of us don't! How many of you don't care how it works, your just happy it works? I think we can all agree that even though WE don't know the ins and out of the science, we believe, trust and are grateful for the results, kind of like gravity! For the few of you who don’t know if you believe in energy work, I'm inviting you to take this "X-ray/MRI science" line of thinking and apply it to Reiki. I know many of you are unfamiliar with Reiki, but luckily you don't need to know about, believe in or understand it to reap the benefits. What I invite you to focus on for now is not “how does it work, what's the science?” but rather “what can Ria's Reiki do for me?” ;-)

I come over with my mask and sanitized hands, we pick an area where we will be undisturbed and you get as comfy as possible. Your couch or your bed is the best, as they are pretty comfy- but if you need I can bring a massage table. I bring my crystals, music, essential oils (if you have allergies, no worries, we can skip the oils) and everything that is needed. We will spend a few moments in the beginning of the session checking in to see what's going on with you and why you would like the session. We will set some intentions and then I will ask you to lay down, get comfy and relax. As you rest with your eyes closed I will work my way through your chakras and intuitively will give more attention where I feel more blockages- all the while breathing deeply, chanting, and placing crystals where I feel they are needed. Towards the end of the session I will bring in some sound healing instruments and sage and will say a prayer of intention. Lastly we will do a brief check in to see how it was for you and talk about anything that came up for you.
It is common for the person receiving Reiki to feel warmth throughout the body, heat coming from my hands, tingly sensations, pulsing, mini-spasms, see different colors, to have "AH-HA!" moments of clarity and solutions. Sometimes people even experience the presence of loved ones who have passed which is a beautiful experience for me to witness! More often than not people will fall asleep during a session, and that's totally normal. You do not "miss out" on any of the Reiki Healing Energy by taking a snooze, it still works full force and typically the nap is one of the best you have had in a while. Often times the dreams you have during a Reiki nap are beautiful, peaceful and can even be intuitive and give answers and perspective to a struggle you are currently in!
To this day I still find it incredible that Reiki can be done remotely which is also known as long distance healing. All I need is a picture of the person or animal that I am working on and for them to be as comfy as possible and undisturbed as possible. Whether over the phone or on zoom is your choice, as far as the strength of Reiki energy goes its all the same. It's best if we can briefly check in before and after the session so that we may set intentions and to review anything that came up for you during the session. I have relaxing music that I will be playing on my end, but if you prefer your own relaxing music that's ok too. If we do the session on Zoom my camera will be focused on my alter, except for the check-ins- those we will be face to face. During the actual session however it would be best if you were lying down in a comfy spot with your eyes closed- not looking at the screen. If on the phone you have a choice, I can call you and we stay on the phone for the duration of the session OR we can do the check in in the beginning, then hang up, and then I'll call you afterwards to do our closing check in--- totally up to you. During the session I will be using crystals, oils, sound healing, mantras and more- even though we are not in person you still receive all the benefits because of the intention behind them!

Dogs, cats, horses, reptiles, birds and really all animals can benefit from Reiki- rescues who were abused or neglected in their previous home, vet visits, separation anxiety, painful injuries, those who are fearful out in the world, moving to another house or barn, fighting or stressed around the other animals in the home, birthing trauma... Animals have a HUGE range of emotions, thoughts and feelings and just like us they can get stressed out, traumatized and be in pain- they deserve relief just as much as we do.
Like with humans I don't need to be there in person for an animal to receive the benefits of Reiki, I can do the session remotely, all I need is their picture! When receiving Reiki many animals will lay down and fall asleep, some will get up and walk away, and others will go stare out the window- whatever your pet physically does during the session doesn't matter- they are still fully receiving the Reiki energy and it is being integrated and working within their chakras. Obviously it is hard to ask them how it went for them and how they feel afterwards so I encourage my clients to just watch and see. Pay attention over the next hours, days and weeks to their behavior and see if you notice if they have improved. Sometimes with animals (and humans for that matter) we have engrained habits from years of repetition so if you happen to see a pain-limp or a bit of anxiety after a session don't immediately assume it didn't work- keep an eye on them for a couple days and there's a very good chance you will see overall improvement despite the brief repetition-relapse.
I should mention that when humans request a session with me it is inherently known that they give me permission to alter their energy field with the Reiki Healing Energy. When it comes to animals it is respectful that I ask them (their spirit-energetically) if they give me consent to give them Reiki. Majority of the time they say an enthusiastic "YES!!!" Sometimes however they can say "no", and they can say no for a variety of reasons (maybe they don't feel they need it, even if you do) but if I get a "no" from them then I will not do the session at that time. We will reschedule for a few days later and of course I will not charge you until the session has been completed whenever that may be.
I am currently getting certified in Animal Energy Communication- Speaking to animals intuitively and energetically (animal-psychic), please ask me for more information if you are interested!
In my experience most children and animals just don't need as long to integrate the energy work and heal. I personally feel that it's because children and animals are "fresh from the other side", meaning they haven't been inundated by the heaviness from the world around us for years on end. They are young, vibrant, and still carry the magic from the other side without the buildup of blockages that come from long hard years of living on this difficult but beautiful planet.
In person or Zoom- Be in a room where you will be undisturbed. Sit or lie down in a comfortable position, turn your cell phone off or on airplane mode if possible once the session has started. Dress or change into comfy loose fitting clothes, nothing too restrictive- we want the energy to move easily and freely. Have socks or slippers on if possible. Have a blanket near by in case you get chilly. Please remove any metal or constricting jewelry that you are comfortable with removing. Have a glass of water near by, the more water you drink before, during and after the better- Reiki moves a lot of energy and sometimes has a detoxing effect, staying hydrated moves it through and cleanses you. I will have my own relaxing music playing, but feel free to play your own if you prefer. Come to the session with an open mind and the benefits will follow!
One session, a few sessions, ongoing support- it's really up to you, where you are at and how you feel. One session might be all you need to relax, get relief from pain, feel happy, or help clear your mind and focus so that you can start to move forward in your life. If you are in the middle of a stressful but temporary situation (moving to another house, a sprained ankle, a disagreement with a loved one) 1-3 sessions could possibly be enough to help you though. For chronic pain, messy divorces, the death of a loved one or long-term illness' I definitely believe a 5 or more sessions or a package/membership would be ideal as those tend to be "set in" blockages that need more passes to really work through fully. As we work together over multiple sessions I will be checking in with you often, intuitively checking in with your spirit and watching how you, your body and mind are integrating the work we are doing together and will continue to give you honest feed back on what I believe would serve your highest purpose and is best for you at the time.
At this time I accept cash, check, Pay Pal, Venmo, and most major credit cards. I will start to use a scheduling/payment app here in the near future for ease and convenience- please stand by!
I ask that you respect my time and schedule by giving me 24 hours notice. If you cancel within 24 hours of our scheduled session a cancellation fee of $30 will be charged. If you are a no-show for a scheduled appointment you will be charged 50% of what your session would have costed.
