Relaxing Reiki in Boston
WHAT IS REIKI?
In a Reiki healing touch session, the practitioner places her hands gently upon the person receiving the treatment in order to facilitate energy flow.
The receiver lies down comfortably during the session, fully clothed. This is not a massage; rather the practitioner positions her hands at one place on the body until there is an energy shift, at which point she moves to another.
The full flow of a Reiki treatment moves from head to toe in a specific hand movement pattern (avoiding sensitive areas), but Reiki can still be effectively done with hands focused just on one area, such as the head or shoulders, upon request.
Reiki can have many benefits, from relaxation to positive energy changes and general healing. It is not religiously affiliated, and has been so well-documented as beneficial that it is now in use in many major hospitals. For more about Reiki and its benefits, check out this Cleveland Clinic article, this Forbes article, or this Atlantic piece.
Lillie (the “L” in Healing Touch “L”) is a touch and energy healer who helps people find calm, freedom, and insight in mind, body, and soul. She is certified as a Usui, Kundalini, and Holy Fire Reiki Master. Lillie uses a gentle touch, following intuition, as well as guidance given from a conversation at the start of the session.
After booking, Lillie will email an intake form to learn about your healing needs, and to explain more about the process. On the day of the session, please arrive in comfortable, soft clothes (or bring an outfit to change into in the private bathroom), wearing a face covering. Do reschedule if you are sick. In the studio, all surfaces are disinfected between clients, and linens are freshly-laundered.
Before we start the session, you will have a chance to let Lillie know if there are any areas of your body you don’t want touched, and you can request changes at any time. The whole session can be done with hands on only shoulders or head if desired.
Sessions are 30 – 60 minutes (at least 45 minutes recommended), during which time you will lie down on your back and/or stomach, depending on your needs, while Lillie gently places her hands from head to toe in a slow pattern. Note that this is NOT a massage — it is gentle hand placement for energy flow.
During the session, you may feel relaxed and even fall asleep, or you may experience flows of emotion, clarity, insight, or shifting. You may choose to speak or remain silent. Positive benefits may be immediate, or may blossom in the subsequent days. See real testimonials here!
“I write this only an hour or so after our Reiki session, but a wave of relief has washed over me that I’ll carry forth into this new chapter of my life. Eternally grateful to have been in the presence of such a kind and caring practitioner. Lillie, you are incredible at what you do, and I am so grateful for your healing work.”
SEEING COLORS DURING REIKI
During the session, you might see colors, which indicate a change in energy or chakra cleansing. Lillie’s specialty is being able to very vividly visualize the colors of chakra balance and energy flow during the meditation of Reiki to help you understand where your body is storing energy, and how to shift it for greater wellbeing. This is also known as doing an aura reading.
During the session, Lillie can tell you which colors she sees most vividly in you, where in the body you are holding them, and what they might mean for your life, and for positive next steps in your path. After the session, Lillie will debrief with you to further the healing process. The focus in Reiki is on enhancing and supporting the positive, so you do not need to be concerned about what communication you will receive — it’s all good, kind, and helpful!
Payment is on a sliding scale from $77 per session, and may be done securely by Venmo (@HealingTouchL) or Paypal ([email protected]). To book, a minimum payment of the lowest end of the sliding scale is required. Please contact Lillie if any issues with payment arise.
