Reiki Energy Therapy

Welcome to our Reiki therapist, Jen!

You can book online with her at www.campbellcc.com/reiki/

Reiki is a healing technique that requires an attuned Reiki Practitioner to channel energy into the body by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the individual’s body to restore physical and emotional well-being.

Jennifer’s approach to Reiki includes a balance of science-based and alternative healing considerations. She believes that we all have our own history of traumas and need to set an intention to let these traumas heal. Jennifer believes that each person holds the ability to heal themselves given the right environment and support. She takes special care in ensuring each session feels like an escape from the busy nature of life so that the body can move past the energy blockages that occur as a result of our stressful day to day lives.

What can I expect in a session?

Each session begins with setting an intention to heal. Your Reiki practitioner will discuss your goals for the session with you and will keep them in mind throughout the treatment. You will lay, fully clothed, in a comfortable position as the Reiki Practitioner places their hands on your body. You may feel a slight heat or tingling sensation with each hand placement as the new energy flows to where it is needed in the body. At the end of each session, your Reiki Practitioner will consult with you about locations in the body that required more focus throughout the treatment and how this could inform your self-care practices outside of session.

Before your first treatment, Jennifer will review your unique needs for treatment to ensure that Reiki is accessible to you. Jennifer is a hands-on Reiki Practitioner but will use a hands-off technique if requested. Your comfort is Jennifer’s first priority.

What can Reiki help me with?

Many people choose to access Reiki because they are feeling “stuck.” This may mean that they are feeling lethargic in their personal lives, needing a change in their career, feeling a desire for more intimate connections with their loved ones, or they are simply wanting to feel like the best version of themselves. People who have accessed a Reiki session from Jennifer have reported specific reductions in various symptoms and a feeling of intense relaxation.
