When I first heard of Reiki, I pictured sitting around in a big circle chanting with other people. Apparently I was VERY confused because that is not even close. So, let's clear it up just in case you were as confused as me.
Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
Following yet? I was still a little skeptical about it too before my first appointment. But, meeting Natalie with Pink Moon Essentials changed all of that. I met Natalie at a Beauty Boost event and I was immediately drawn to her calming energy and generous attitude. She is someone who you feel comfortable around right away and she REALLY listens when you talk to her.
My reiki session started with a tarot card pull. Natalie had me blindly choose a tarot card and then we talked about what that card meant. She also asked me about how I was feeling by asking two specific questions. We talked about that for a few minutes and then she picked a few essential oils for me to choose from. After that, I got on the table. Natalie worked her way around my body sometimes placing her hands on me and sometimes not, and saying positive statements that are related to what we talked about before.
I've done reiki with Natalie twice and if I'm being honest, I didn't feel much different after the first session. But, prior to going in the session I got a work phone call that left me VERY distracted the entire session so I don't think I really gave it a fair shot. But during the second session, I felt a STRONG energy shift during my session. I was having some digestive issues and when Natalie put her hands on my stomach I felt a shift in my body and after the session I felt so much better.
Reiki is all about moving energy. From Natalie's website: I will address your current health concerns and focus on where you are feeling physical, emotional, or mental stresses in your body. I use aromatherapy in my practice and I will offer you your choice of essential oils during your session. Sessions can include acupressure, it is your decision.
So, with the holidays coming up, if you're feeling a little stressed or drained of energy, schedule a session with Natalie. If you mention Sweat Local you can get $5 off your session! Book online here: https://pinkmoonessentials.com/contact/.
