NOTE: My Reiki practice is separate from my psychotherapy practice. If I see you for one, as a rule, I will not see you for the other.
“I received Jen’s Reiki offering during the traumatic time dealing with flood last fall. Jen’s loving and warm touch soothed and healed the stress I endured.” SM
What is Reiki?
Based on ancient traditions, Reiki was named and promoted a century ago in Meiji-era, Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki means “universal life energy,” and in some cultures it is referred to as “chi” or “prana.” We all posses this energy; it is the essence of us and everything around us. A gentle hands-on technique passed on through an unbroken line of successors and practitioners, the effects of Reiki include feeling: profoundly relaxed, grounded, comforted and balanced as well as a sense of spaciousness, joy and deeper awareness.
“You might describe this experience as comparable to that of being suspended in a hammock of pure possibility.” ~ Janeanne Narrin, author of One Degree Beyond: A Reiki Journey into Energy Medicine
Touch is healing. Reiki is similar to the more commonly known technique by the name of “Healing Touch Program” used in hospitals across the nation. Safe for all ages, Reiki supports the natural ability to heal and complements standard medical care benefiting clients by reducing stress, calming anxiety and depression, decreasing pain, strengthening the immune system, enhancing recovery from surgery, deepens spiritual connection, supports cancer care and creates a sense of well being.
What does the first session look like?
The first session involves a consultation as well as the energy session itself. I ask a series of questions about any concerns related to my client’s individual’s physical, mental, and emotional well being. I answer any questions about the treatment. Then, the client lies fully clothed (except for shoes and socks off) on a massage table. I explain where I will gently place my hands slightly above or on my client’s body. The session lasts 60 minutes, and people frequently report feeling deeply relaxed and peaceful during and after the session. There is a cumulative beneficial effect of Reiki; therefore, regular sessions are helpful. Call me for prices (720) 480-5145.
About Jen – Reiki Master
I am qualified to teach Reiki – Levels I, II & III and Mastership. The journey is a way of living reflected in the offering. I treasure the experience of working with clients. As a registered psychotherapist, the use of touch is discouraged; therefore, I run a split practice, serving two populations. Depending on your needs my services can be geared one way or another. Counseling is important for mental well-being. Reiki is especially helpful to those who are grieving or dealing with a difficult transition, such as job loss, a move, the ending of a relationship or even death. Reiki creates a sense of safety, love and ease in the body. It can resolve pain, but that is not a guarantee. The intention is to give you what your body and spirit are requesting energetically, and usually that feels quite relaxing, centering and, sometimes, ecstatic. I recommend you read about both practices and choose one or the other.
