Your Reiki Session
Reiki is beneficial for general wellness as well as for relief from specific physical and emotional health conditions. Reiki practice facilitates the Relaxation Response, which creates an environment within the body where healing can take place as the nervous system shifts from sympathetic to parasympathetic. Although many people seek a Reiki session for specific ailments, beneficial healing results frequently go beyond the particular condition, as those who experience Reiki practice report feeling more energized, calmer, more resilient, mindful, and more at ease with life's uncertainties. At Brenner Reiki Healing, clients are encouraged to lean into their own thoughts, feelings, and experiences with caring curiosity and self-awareness. Reiki recipients are encouraged to be invested and active in addressing their own healing process within the context of their Reiki sessions and between sessions.
“The cast doesn’t heal the broken bone; it provides the physical mechanism of support that allows the bone to initiate and complete its own intelligent healing process.” - Paul Levine, PhD

What to Expect
The first session begins with a brief conversation. I will ask you a few questions so that I may plan the most beneficial sessions for your needs, comfort, and safety. Privacy and confidentiality are maintained at all times. I subscribe to the International Association of Reiki Professionals' (IARP) Code of Ethics which is available in my treatment room.
Following the initial conversation, we may sit in stillness for a few moments, allowing a deeper presence for the session. The client can then lie down fully clothed, resting comfortably on a massage table, covered with a blanket if desired. With your permission, I will instruct you in Reiki meditative breathing. With your consent for gentle touch, I will complete a series of hand placements, covering the major organs, glands, and joints of the body. If you indicate that you wish for me to pay special attention to a particular injury or issue, I will also focus on that area during the session. In a typical session, the head and torso are worked on first, followed by the back and feet. Reiki practitioners never touch any private parts.
A Reiki session may look like no one is doing anything, and that is somewhat true because a Reiki session is not really about doing. A Reiki session is more about being...being in connection with one's own thoughts, emotions, and body. Being in connection with the qualities within oneself that one wishes to cultivate. Being in connection with the kind of energy one wishes to bring forth.
A Reiki treatment may be conducted with the practitioner's hands on the body or just above the body, according to your preference. Clients should be prepared to turn off cell phones and pagers. During your session, I invite you to connect with yourself in stillness and ease of mind. If something feels uncomfortable during the session, I encourage you to inform me. For example, if a client needs the restroom during a session, this is absolutely permitted.
Remember...This is your healing space and your healing time.
Reiki as a Practice
Reiki practice allows us to have a different relationship with what is happening with us/to us/in our lives/in our relationships.
Reiki sessions and continuing practice help individuals connect to their inner selves to cultivate resiliency and calm. Reiki benefits those of us seeking to manage uncertainty and stress by building resiliency and becoming more proactive rather than reactive in daily life.
While many of us may be living our lives “waiting for the next shoe to drop," Reiki is a strengths-based approach, empowering recipients to identify their own strengths, resiliency, and coping skills. Reiki sessions, Reiki training classes, and continuing education promote mindfulness and emotional regulation in daily life.
Reiki, a mind-body healing and meditation practice, assists the body's systems to restore their natural repair mechanisms that are overly-taxed by the frantic pace of daily life. Reiki can elicit the Relaxation Response, promoting health creation.
Reiki recipients report increased levels of energy and vitality, alleviation of stress and anxiety, improved sleep, and pain reduction. If you are exploring Reiki for relief from troubling physical conditions, Brenner Reiki Healing offers a comforting and reassuring setting for Reiki sessions and Reiki trainings in which to discover Reiki's health-promoting benefits.
Reiki sessions and trainings facilitate spiritual growth and personal development. Through Reiki meditations and Reiki healing, people of all ages and backgrounds can cultivate the inner qualities they wish to bring forth. Reiki has no dogma, nor is it a religion.
One may choose to experience Reiki sessions, or choose to learn Reiki practice for oneself as a sustainable personal practice that facilitates the capacity to overcome limitations, move into a more spacious and open state of being, and live with wisdom, gratitude, and compassion, peaceably with oneself and others.
