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 via an assisted meditative state. 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. In a 45 minute session, Lillie usually focuses on the energy centers in the front of the body, while an hour-long Reiki session provides time for both front and back chakra balancing.
Benefits of Reiki
Reiki can have many benefits, from relaxation and stress relief, to positive energy changes, to increased life clarity, 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.
WHO IS “L?” in this Boston Reiki Practice?
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, and has been practicing since 2018. Formerly, she was a middle school English teacher!
Lillie uses a gentle touch, following intuition, as well as guidance given from a conversation at the start of the session. Her specialty is chakra balancing by being able to see an individual person’s energy color pattern, and guiding it into a healing flow. It’s fine if you have no prior experience with chakra energy work; Lillie will provide an easy-to-understand and helpful experience.
Lillie sees each Reiki session as a collaborative experience, and welcomes requests and discussion before or during the session — or simply silent focus. Both practitioner and client can follow the flow as needed for maximum benefit. Curious? See availability for booking a session here.

WHAT ARE SESSIONS LIKE?
After booking, Lillie will email an intake form to learn about your healing needs, and to explain more about the process.
What should you wear for Reiki? On the day of the session, please arrive in comfortable, soft, clothes and clean socks (or bring an outfit to change into in the private bathroom).
Thin clothes in layers are ideal to facilitate the transfer of energy; for example, wear a thin long-sleeved shirt instead of a thick sweater, and wear yoga pants instead of jeans.
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 45 – 60 minutes, 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 productive energy shifts. You may choose to speak or remain silent. Lillie may share what she’s noticing in your energy pattern, if you would like. 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.”
CHAKRA BALANCING and AURA READING
During the Reiki session, you might see the chakras’ mediation colors, which indicate a change in energy or chakra cleansing. Lillie’s specialty is being able to very vividly perceive the colors of chakra balancing 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 aura readings.
Throughout 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. You may also see colors, yourself.
After the Reiki chakra balancing 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 during the aura readings — it’s all good, kind, and helpful! If you’d prefer more talking during the session, Lillie is also a life coach, Boston!
Couples Reiki in Boston
Looking for the perfect date activity to connect you with your partner?
Lillie loves offering couples Reiki sessions for two people to experience energy work at once! Choose between a 45-minute couples Reiki session and a 60-minute couples Reiki session, during which time you’ll be able to recline next to your partner (or a platonic friend — it doesn’t need to be romantic!) and relax with gentle healing touch energy flow hand placements.
Healing Touch “L” welcomes all types of couples, and is a LGBTQIA+ affirming space. Lillie also offers group Reiki workshops and postpartum Reiki.
