Reiki is... a gentle, hands-on Japanese energy healing technique that is used for stress reduction and relaxation. Through a natural, non-invasive process, Reiki gradually brings the body to a state of calm and balance that promotes spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical healing. It can be translated into English to mean "Spiritual/Universal Life Energy" - the very thing that gives us life and keeps us moving. Reiki is a cumulative practice that helps remove obstacles to your health and personal growth, it does no harm, and often leaves one feeling lighter, healthier, and happier.
Reiki is for... everyone and all living things can benefit from it. Whether you're fighting cancer, dealing with chronic pain, feel overwhelmed by stress, want to connect more deeply in your spiritual practice, or need self-care, Reiki is for you. Animals also find comfort, healing, and peace during sessions that can often lead to improved behavior, deeper trust with humans, and overall wellbeing. When we heal, we make room for those around us to heal as well. Once introduced to Reiki, you may experience a transformation in the way you connect with yourself and others.
"Ana is a one of a kind Reiki Master. Not only is she very friendly she is extremely comforting. When I first went to Ana I was dealing with the loss of my father. Ana was able to help me find comfort and peace with his passing. It helped me to stop and reflect on how I was treating myself and body as well as others. I would highly recommend Ana if you're interested in trying Reiki!!" — Casey Cracolici
Reiki Sessions...are available by appointment only and can run from 30 minutes to an hour. If this is your first session at Fire and Spirit, expect it to run about 15 minutes over the scheduled time to include your free consultation. During the consultation we will discuss the process, expectations, post treatment care, and answer any questions you may have regarding Reiki.
As healing is an intensely personal experience, each session unfolds naturally to aid you in receiving what you need in the moment. It is important to us that you feel safe, comfortable, and supported throughout the whole process so you can experience the most benefit from each session. No two sessions will be alike and your response to the energy may vary depending on where you are physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
We encourage committing to at least 4 weekly sessions when you begin your treatments. Although you may feel immediate results from one Reiki session, it can take several sessions before you connect with the energy in a way that reveals a more significant effect on your experience. For this reason any of the sessions can be part of a multi-session package, which offers a discounted rate for those of you who want to commit to a long term plan.
Distance Reiki Sessions
Distant or Distance Reiki is just as beneficial as an in-person session, but provides a different experience. Distant Reiki is ideal for those who have to quarantine, have an injury that impacts mobility, are traveling, need to relax while on break at work or at school, or just want to experience deep rest and relaxation in a place of their choice.
Animal Reiki Sessions
Animals are more sensitive and receptive to Reiki and respond best when they are given the space to lead. All sessions are held in the client's home or where the animal is most comfortable. As the practitioner, we sit with and hold space for the animal, while paying close attention and responding to the animal's needs and cues. Reiki can help animals and their loved ones work through trauma, find peace in transition, heal wounds, and build stronger bonds of trust and love with each other.
R&R Session - Reiki and a Reading
During this session, you will have the opportunity to combine two of our loves - Reiki and Readings! While being fully present and experiencing the benefits of a Reiki session, we can explore the areas that may come up for you through an intuitive reading using Tarot and Oracle cards.
"Ana and I have been close friends for years. To say I trust her with my life is an understatement. When she told me that she was becoming a Reiki therapist, I found the prospect of her goal intriguing since I didn't know much about Reiki. I knew that all beings vibrate, we are just energy in a physical alignment, but I felt like what I'd heard about Reiki was kinda hard to believe. We can guide our energy with our hands? Really? How does that work? So I was curious when she asked me to try it. My first session showed me its potential.
When Ana welcomed me into her studio she was her usual warm, charming, vibrant self: enthusiastic, confident, and centered. I don't know what the heck happened after I closed my eyes, but I feel like even if I'd been resistant, Ana's reiki practice would've served me well. I almost instantly felt what I can only describe as a kind of warmth radiating from her hands. Makes sense since temperature is a kind of measure of energy. Her energy connected with mine. We ended our first session with me knowing something real happened. After a few more sessions with Ana I understood the power of reiki therapy. It is a gentle transformation of what makes us. And I think that if it's utilized in concert with its fellow somatic practices, reiki can do wonders for us individually and communally. I hope you try it with Ana. You'll be so glad you did."
