About This Thing Called Reiki

Have you heard about this thing called Reiki? Some people have and some have not, but even those who have heard of it may not fully understand. While it may seem like a new craze, Reiki has been around for almost 100 years. The healing practice originated in Japan and has since made it's way across the world. Why you may ask...because it works! It has grown in popularity due to it's healing and relaxation results.

Have you ever noticed when your energy is out of balance you may feel imbalanced emotionally in the form of anxiety, stress or depression? Sometimes this imbalance can come in the form of digestive issues or chronic tension. When this energy is out of balance, it is best to balance energy with energy. This is what Reiki does.

"Reiki is a stress reduction and relaxation technique that promotes well being and pain relief through energetic transfers."

This form of "hands-on" natural healing has many benefits including...

  • Relaxation

  • Boosts Energy Reserves

  • Reduces Stress, Fear and Anxiety

  • Compliments Other Healing Methods

  • Accelerates Self-Healing

  • Promotes Harmony and Balance

So, what exactly happens during a session?

Before your session, you will fill out a paper letting our Reiki practitioner what you are expecting from your Reiki session. Then you will enter the room and lay completely clothed on a massage table while she begins to put your mind at ease. During a session, our Reiki practitioner sends energy to you by placing her hands on or above your body. Over the course of a session the energetic transfers work to remove blockages in the body and promote the balance and flow of energy.

After your session you will have the choice of laying for a few more minutes to relax and wake your senses back up (a lot of people do go to sleep during Reiki). One of the best things to do after your session is to ground yourself (by walking barefoot) either outside or in the Salt Room for even a short period of time.

Here at The Salt Oasis Kingsport, we have had clients do Reiki for many different reasons. Some for relaxation and stress relief, we have had some clients with broken bones or bad joints who have greatly benefited from Reiki. Recently bringing on our Reiki practitioner has helped us become a more rounded wellness spa. Reiki is a great compliment to any other healing method and pairs perfectly with a Salt Room session.

This has given us the idea for our newest package here at The Salt Oasis Kingsport. We are now introducing our Stress Release Package. This package offers a 30 minute Reiki session followed by a 45 minute Salt Room Session two times per week for four weeks (a month). We will be running this package until the end of the year and may make it a permanent one later on. Now is the perfect time to give Reiki a try.
