FAQ

How long have you been a Reiki Master?

I was initiated as a Reiki Master by Melanie Harrell of Houston in 2014. My training consisted of completing a three year apprenticeship, which involved learning to give attunements and co-teaching Reiki classes alongside my Reiki Master. In addition, through Reiki Master Melanie Harrell, I am able to trace my Reiki lineage back to Dr. Mikao Usui, who rediscovered Reiki in the late 1800’s.

What happens during a Reiki session?

The fully clothed client will lie down on a massage table while the practitioner places their hands on or above certain areas of the body, such as the head, torso, legs and feet. How the client processes the energy is unique to each individual. Some people experience deep relaxation and others may fall asleep. On the other hand, you might have sensations during or after treatment such as: warmth, coolness or tingling. However, you might not feel anything at all, but this does not mean that Reiki is not working.

Is Reiki safe?

Yes, Reiki is pure positive energy that only works for the highest good of the client and the practitioner. It is non-invasive and can be utilized in all situations by everyone, including pregnant women, infants, children and the elderly.

Can Reiki be used with other healing methods?

Yes—Reiki will enhance the effects of other complementary therapies. It can also be used in conjunction with medical or psychological treatment. I must emphasize that if you are under the medical care of a physician, it is imperative that all current medical treatment be continued unless directed otherwise by your physician.

Is Reiki associated with a particular religion?

No--Reiki is not associated with any religion and you are not required to have certain beliefs in order to benefit from Reiki energy. Being very spiritual in nature, Reiki will benefit anyone who has the opportunity to experience this high vibration energy healing.

Can Reiki be used on animals and plants?

Yes--animals respond very well to Reiki, sometimes quicker than humans. I find that when I give my dogs Reiki treatments, they instinctively “know” when they’ve had enough of the energy and they will get up and scamper away after only a few minutes of treatment. Furthermore, Reiki can be used on plants, which are living energy fields.

What is sound therapy?

Sound Therapy is the therapeutic application of sound frequencies (in this case, the ancient solfeggio tones) to the body and mind of person with the intention of bringing them into a state of harmony and health. Sound healing is increasingly embraced as the oldest, most gently and most profound method of healing there is.

What method of sound healing do you use?

I use tuning forks that are designed to replicate the ancient solfeggio frequencies. The forks assist with opening up your energy channels and balancing your chakras, which are energy centers.

What are the ancient Solfeggio Tones?

These original sounds were apparently used in Ancient Gregorian chants, such as the Hymn to St. John the Baptist. The chants and their special tones were believed to impart tremendous spiritual blessings when sung in harmony during religious masses. These powerful tones were rediscovered by Dr. Joseph Puleo as described in the book Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse by Dr. Leonard Horowitz.

What effect does sound healing have when it’s done at the same time as Reiki?

When the healing energy of sound is introduced, the healing power of Reiki is amplified.

What is the duration of your Reiki classes?

Reiki I and II are taught over a consecutive two day period. Training is held for four hours each day.
