Reiki is a form of holistic spiritual healing that alleviates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual conditions, as well as offering an overall sense of balance and wellness. Reiki moves and redirects the life force energy inherently present in our bodies to relieve stress; reduce anxiety and pain; increase energy; boost the immune system; and balance the physical, mental, and emotional states.
As a Usui Reiki Master trained by Heather Smidt, Emily offers a loving vessel through which this energy can pass. Her sessions include practices and methods from both the Usui and Tibetan traditions. Emily facilitates the restoration of balance and harmony throughout the systems by drawing from both her knowledge and love of traditional Chinese Medicine and her own intuition.
Yin Yoga and Reiki
As a teacher of Yin yoga and meditation, Emily also offers healing sessions that combine personalized Yin sequences, breathing practices, and Reiki. Maximizing healing through some movement, body positioning, and an understanding of how trauma and emotions are stored in the body, Emily thoughtfully leads individuals through a series of poses and accompanies them as various feelings and sensations naturally arise during practice. Emily provides a quiet and accepting space for individuals to mindfully experience connections between sensations in the body, emotions, and thoughts. Her guidance helps clients gain a greater understanding of their experiences and individual habits off the mat in order to create change in their daily lives.
"I didn't know exactly what to anticipate when I booked my first Reiki session with Emily, but my expectations were nonetheless high. Even at that, they were almost immediately exceeded when Emily immediately identified and alleviated a chronic physical ailment. The hour that I spent with her was unlike anything I've ever experienced; when all was said and done, I felt completely emotionally, physically, and spiritually lightened and renewed. Just as incredible as the amazing work she does is Emily's kind, compassionate, and gentle manner. She is masterful at creating a safe space, spent a significant amount of time discussing my experience on her table when she was finished, and even checked in on me the next day." –Nikki
