What is Reiki?

Reiki (prounced “ray-kee”) is a non-invasive healing modality which originates in Japan. 

It’s called Reiki because the Japanese word “Rei” means “universal life force” and “Ki” (also known as “chi” in Chinese), means “energy”.

Reiki is a practice in which universal healing life force energy (vitality) is transferred through the Practitioner’s hands, directly into the Client’s energy field.

Hospitals around Boston including Winchester Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Dana Farber, and Brigham And Women’s Hospital now endorse and offer this amazing, powerful healing technique for their patients!

What Clients Are Saying About Reiki…

“Reiki at Whole-istic Living has had such a beneficial effect on both my body and emotional wellbeing. As a runner who has had two knee surgeries and a person who exercises regularly with various aches and pains, I have found that Reiki has significantly expedited the healing process. I am able to run multiple days in a row pain free, something I was not able to do before Reiki treatments. Reiki can also help with emotional stress and pain that life brings. This is something that I experienced in my first session and it really helped me in a profound way. 
 
The Reiki experience has been continually intriguing. If you can allow yourself to just close your eyes and let go, you will experience a very deep level of relaxation. For me each session is like a journey in which I sometimes enter with stress and return at the end in a calm, peaceful state. Sometimes I leave the session energized and other times I just want to relax. It’s only based on what my body needs. 
 
I have been receiving Reiki treatment at Whole-istic Living for about nine months. I have always found Jenna to be a kind professional whose calmness allows me to entirely relax, sometimes to the point of falling asleep, and I am not the type of person who can just fall asleep anywhere. 
 
I believe that Reiki can help everyone. I recommend giving Whole-istic Living Reiki with Jenna a try and relax!”

“Having regular Reiki treatments with Jenna helped me relax and be less fearful before a recent major surgery. After surgery I continued with Reiki and found that my post-operative pain diminished more quickly after a treatment and that I felt refreshed and grounded in my own healing energy. Jenna is a very intuitive practitioner and offers her insights of holistic health at the highest level.”

“Last Friday was my first Reiki session ever! I had heard the term, but never really knew what it was exactly… Having not heard much about Reiki, I did the normal thing people do; I Googled it. Everything I read seemed really broad and I felt like I would just have to experience it for myself in order to grasp what it was really all about. I got to Jenna’s office in the middle of the afternoon and she sat me down in the conference area (which is more like a cozy living room) and let me know the type of sensations I may feel so I wouldn’t be completely in the dark before we started. She explained the various Chakras in the body and that she would work on each, but pay more attention to the areas where she felt the most energy.

…I started to feel tingles and heat coming from her hands. It felt good, as I have extremely tight calves and plantar fasciitis. She worked by my legs and feet for quite a while which was great. Then I flipped over onto my stomach and she worked her way back up to my heart chakra. I had no idea what was going on, but out of nowhere I started to cry. Apparently, this is very common and it signifies the release of pent up emotions. I was really impressed that Jenna was able to control that kind of energy and was able to get that kind of response from me.

After experiencing Reiki, I would definitely recommend giving it a try. Jenna is extremely professional and made me feel comfortable even in a somewhat vulnerable situation, which I greatly appreciated. Thanks again, Jenna!”
