Sarah Skiles - Reiki Level II Practitioner - Sound Healing Level I Certified

My journey to Reiki

Over the last few years, I found myself depleted. A lack of energy. A lack of time. A lack of joy. I had heard of reiki throughout my life from various friends, and after a lot of overthinking, I decided to make an appointment. I was told to come in with the following things in mind:I am worthy of being healedAn open mindAn intentionThe last one was hard for me. I felt like I was stumbling through life, weighed down by an unexplainable void. So I decided my intention would be to figure out why I was feeling this way. What changes could I make?I normally have a hard time relaxing and fully letting go, but that was not my experience with reiki. I found myself overcome with emotions and body sensations. I cried at the heart chakra, and my body could feel the healing energy directed at different areas. Then mid-session, it dawned on me: this is what I want to do with my life. I want to help guide people on whatever journey they find themselves on.After my session, I found myself with immense energy and drawing again for the first time, probably since college. I never feel better than I do after both receiving and giving reiki.I am so excited to share this with you all, and I truly hope to see you through the office doors soon!Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have!

what is reiki?

Reiki is a holistic healing practice that focuses on channeling universal life energy to promote physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It involves a practitioner gently placing their hands on or near the recipient's body, allowing the energy to flow and stimulate the body's natural healing processes. The word "Reiki" is derived from Japanese words meaning "universal life" (rei) and "energy" (ki). During a Reiki session, recipients often experience deep relaxation, reduced stress, and a sense of balance as the energy works to restore harmony within the body.

What can reiki be used for

Reiki can be used for a variety of purposes, including:1. Stress Reduction: Reiki promotes relaxation and helps alleviate stress and tension, creating a sense of calmness and tranquility.
2. Pain Management: It can assist in managing physical discomfort, such as chronic pain, headaches, and muscle tension.
3. Emotional Healing: Reiki can aid in releasing emotional blockages, promoting emotional healing and balance.
4. Enhanced Well-being: The practice supports overall well-being by boosting the body's natural healing abilities.
5. Mental Clarity: Reiki may help clear mental fog, improve focus, and enhance mental clarity.
6. Energy Balancing: It works to balance the body's energy centers (chakras) and restore harmony to the energy system.
7. Boosted Immune System: Regular sessions might strengthen the immune system, aiding the body's ability to fend off illnesses.
8. Complementary Therapy: Reiki can complement traditional medical treatments and therapies, aiding in the healing process.
9. Spiritual Growth: It can facilitate spiritual growth, self-awareness, and a deeper connection to one's inner self.
10. Preventive Care: Reiki sessions may serve as a preventive measure by maintaining energy flow and promoting overall health.
Remember, while Reiki is considered beneficial by many, individual experiences may vary, and it's important to consult with qualified practitioners and healthcare professionals for your specific needs.

What to expect from a session

- Fully Clothed: Clients remain fully clothed throughout the session, typically removing only their shoes for comfort.
- Gentle Touch or Hands-off: The practitioner may lightly touch or hover their hands over specific areas of the body, allowing the flow of healing energy.
- Sensations: Some individuals may feel sensations such as warmth, tingling, or energy movement during the session.
- Deep Relaxation: Clients often experience a deep sense of relaxation and stress relief as the session progresses.
- Energy Flow: Reiki aims to balance the body's energy flow, promoting physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
- Emotional Release: It's possible to experience emotional release as blocked energy is cleared, leading to a sense of catharsis.
- Customized Session: The practitioner might focus on specific areas of concern or imbalance, tailoring the session to the individual's needs.
- Inner Peace: Many report a heightened sense of inner peace, mental clarity, and improved emotional outlook after the session.
- Session Length: A typical session can last anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the practitioner and client preferences.
- Post-session Feelings: After the session, individuals might feel invigorated, refreshed, or even a bit tired, as the body adjusts to the energy work.
- Multiple Sessions: While some experience benefits after a single session, a series of sessions might be recommended for lasting effects.
Remember that individual experiences can vary, and it's important to approach Reiki with an open mind and a willingness to receive the healing energy.

what is Sound Healing

Music and sounds can be very impactful. I know from personal experience that if a certain song is playing I'm more likely to be brought to a certain time, place or even emotion. Through sound healing we can harness this power to help bring the body back to homeostasis by using a variety of different healing frequencies. This can help the body relax enough to begin it's natural healing process.Sound Healing can be experienced in individual appointments or in group Sound Baths.

This book has been on my "want to read" list for a long time! Come to this May's book club to discuss "The Body is Not an Apology" by Sonya Renee Taylor. The description for the book is as follows;
"Humans are a varied and divergent bunch with all manner of beliefs, morals, and bodies. Systems of oppression thrive off our inability to make peace with difference and injure the relationship we have with our own bodies.
The Body Is Not an Apology offers radical self-love as the balm to heal the wounds inflicted by these violent systems. World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor invites us to reconnect with the radical origins of our minds and bodies and celebrate our collective, enduring strength. As we awaken to our own indoctrinated body shame, we feel inspired to awaken others and to interrupt the systems that perpetuate body shame and oppression against all bodies. When we act from this truth on a global scale, we usher in the transformative opportunity of radical self-love, which is the opportunity for a more just, equitable, and compassionate world--for us all."

Client Testimonials

"Sarah's Reiki session with me was life-changing. I have tremors in my hands and feet. After her session with me the tremors were completely gone for days! When they did come back they had lessened considerably. I plan to get regular treatments.Thank you so much for helping me heal, Sarah!"

"My Reiki session with Sarah was very peaceful! I tend to have anxious tendencies, and I felt incredibly relaxed after our session. After my session, a sense of calm carried me throughout the day. As a busy parent, it was very helpful to put my thoughts and worries in the background for a while. I'm looking forward to my next session!"

"My first ever Reiki session with Sarah was amazing and deeply relaxing! I have difficulties relaxing and sleeping... Both of which have improved since my session. I can't wait to do it again!"
