Reiki (ray-key) is an ancient, Japanese healing system that works on the body’s energy centers known as chakras, to restore balance and promote healing on all levels (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual). Reiki therapy is a natural healing modality to reduce stress, promote intense relaxation, re-establish balance, and so much more! This modality is compatible with any religious belief system and any health status and healthcare regimen.
Reiki masters at Beyond A Dream, LLC are trained under owner, Rev. Leeann Lilly, RM and the Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage. There are variations in practice which include hands-on and hands-off, or hover method. We practice hands-on Reiki, hovering only around the eyes due to the presence of essential oils on hands, and the throat area due the sensitivity of the area. Our sessions incorporate crystal healing, aromatherapy, and sound therapy through use of soothing music under the pillow, ohm/om therapy, and/or crystal singing bowls.
Receiving regular Reiki therapy is an excellent way to achieve and sustain energy balance and well being on all levels. The energy from a session continues in the receiver for three weeks, so monthly scheduling is a common frequency. All people are unique and we are happy to work individually with our clients to discuss optimal timing to meet individual situations and needs. Examples of variations would include weekly sessions for advanced illness or emotional crisis situations. Really, you cannot receive too much Reiki as we are working with Universal Life Force Energy which is limitless and incredibly natural and safe.
A standard, full Reiki session lasts one hour, although 30 and 90-minute sessions are also available. Feeling a bit out-of-sorts in between full sessions? Try a Reiki Tune-Up. This mini-session lasts about 15 minutes and is done in the seated position. Pair a Reiki Tune-Up with an Aura Cleanse for an on-the-go alignment and boost energy, focus, attitude, and more. Schedule an appointment today and experience Reiki for yourself!
Dry Cupping is an alternative Chinese method that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction may facilitate healing blood flow, increase QI (life force energy), reduce pain, improve blood flow, circulation and promote cellular repair.
Dry cupping can take place on your back, legs, arms, and abdominal area. Depending on where you need the relief. Traditionally, it’s done on the back of the legs and on your back.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING A CUPPING THERAPY?
During a dry cupping therapy session, multiple cups are placed on the skin and then suctioned into the cup. We use oils to ensure suction. You may notice a tightening sensation as the suction draws the skin into the cup, this is painless.
After the cups are removed, the practitioner may cover the previously cupped areas with ointment and bandages. This helps prevent infection. You may experience mild bruising, which typically dissipates within 5-10 days of the session. Once the cupping session is completed and suction is released you’ll feel a relaxing sensation.
For best results, you may also want to fast or eat light meals for two to three hours before your cupping session. Stay hydrated, drink plenty of water after your session. After your session make sure to wash the cupped areas with warm soapy water.
Enjoy aroma therapy, a relaxing foot massage, and aroma infused towels to complete your cupping experience.
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN CUPPING HELP WITH?
Cupping has been used to treat a wide variety of conditions. It may be particularly effective at easing conditions that create muscle aches, digestive issues, skin issues, shingles, facial paralysis, disc herniation, aches, pains, circulation, cellular regeneration, reduce constipation and relieve headaches. This alternative healing should be done once every two weeks to maintain the flow of circulation.
WHO SHOULD NOT RECEIVE CUPPING?
Cupping therapy isn’t recommended for everyone. Extra caution should be taken for the following groups:
- Children under 4 years old should NOT receive cupping therapy. Older children should only be treated for very short periods 2-5 minutes.
- Seniors. Our skin becomes more fragile as we age. Any medication you may be taking might have an effect as well.
- Pregnant people. Avoid cupping the abdomen and lower back.
- Those who are currently menstruating.
Do NOT use cupping if you are currently taking blood thinners.
Also avoid cupping if you have:
- a sunburn
- a wound
- a skin ulcer
- experienced recent trauma
- an internal organ disorder
You may experience (in very rare cases) light headedness and brief bouts of nausea during the process of cupping. This will dissipate once the decompression process starts.
