REIKI AND ENERGY HEALING

A spiritual practice for the mind, body and soul

Energy Healing is a holistic practice that works on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels to promote balance and wellbeing. Reiki is an ancient healing practice that originated in Japan and is a form of energy healing that works by channeling universal life force energy through the practitioner’s hands to the recipient. 

The benefits of energy healing are numerous. On a physical level, Energy Healing or Reiki can help to reduce pain, speed up healing, and improve overall health. It can also help to reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep, and increase energy levels. 

On an emotional level, it can help to reduce negative emotions, increase feelings of peace and relaxation, and promote emotional balance. 

On a spiritual level, Energy Healing or Reiki can help to open up the heart and mind to higher levels of consciousness and can help to bring clarity and insight. 

Why to choose Reiki and Energy Healing in New York City? Because, we are surrounded by the noise pollution from construction, honking horns coming from all directions, and the voices of thousands of people resonating through the city.  But step into our office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and you’re taken to a magical place of tranquility breathing in the sweet essential oil aroma where a multitude of healing modalities is taking place.  Greeted by our warm staff, you’ll soon find yourself forgetting the stress of NYC and relaxing into wellness.

Enhance your session with an essential oil. When you arrive, you’ll be invited to choose an essential oil of your choice.  Not sure which to choose with the abundance of options?  We can help you decide.  Loved the essential oil?  We have them in-office for purchase.  

After choosing your essential oil, you’ll be guided into the peaceful candle lit reiki room where your practitioner will explain the process and you’ll have an opportunity to share your concerns.  The optionally heated soft bed will immeditately bring you into a relaxed state.  If you have chosen the LED option, your practitioner will determine, based on your concerns, the color that would be most beneficial.  

The Process:
By your choice, the practitioner will either be hovering their hands over you or light touch and hovering.  The practitioner will then use her hands to feel and release any energy blockages throughout the body.  To further help clear any blockages, crystal sound bowls are used as part of the expereince which through their vibrational frequencies moving through skin, fluid, and bones of the body, the body is recalibrated at the cellular level.  Finally, chakra tuning forks are used to bring balance to the body’s energy.  Tuning forks are acoustic resonators in the form of a two-pronged fork that when stuck produce a vibration that travels deep into the body to trigger healing.

Your First Session with Us:
To get a more indepth understanding of the blockages and determine their root cause, consider a Biological Reiki reading.  This is a unique and powerful process in which the practitioner uses her intuitive powers transmitted through her hands to determine the root cause of the blockages you are experiencing.  At what age did the blockage occur?  What was the cause?  What negative emotion was produced?  Awareness is the key to healing.  At t the end of the session, your practitioner will review their findings, provide suggestions to further support the release of the blockages, provide a plan of treatment and provide a list of foods that help to support the release of the blockages.

Reiki is an excellent method to help restore that feeling of wholeness that defines when we do or don’t feel healthy. Our sessions will expedite your healing. How, specifically, does it do so?

The positive effects you will experience from our reiki sessions are subtle but super powerful. With the internal work of healing you will be rewarded with a gradual sense of regaining your true, authentic self. Many have been disbelievers in this therapy however, today it is used widely in many hospitals across the country.  According to The Atlantic, “Its presence is particularly vexing to naysayers because Reiki delivers demonstrable salutary effects without a proven cause.”

Reiki helps to balance the mind and body to be present in the moment, feel gratitude and return to ourselves. With the guidance of our Reiki practitioner, your own life force energy will be brought out in surprising and rejuvenating ways.

Since a Biological Intuitive Reading allows us to understand the root cause of your blockages and thereby is invaluable information.

Reiki for Pets

Imagine hearing the New York City traffic, construction and chatter four times louder from four times further away and sensing freshly baked bagels, cookies and piled up garbage more than 10,000 times more accurately. That is what our furry friends sense.

At our office in the Upper Eastside on NYC as well as remotely, we help pets and their owners restore balance and harmony to the body, mind, and spirit. Reiki is a holistic healing practice that is a gentle, non-invasive, and a natural way to help animals heal from physical, emotional, and mental issues.

Reiki for pets can help reduce stress and anxiety, which is especially important in a city as busy and crowded as Manhattan. Reiki can also help to reduce pain and inflammation, which can be beneficial for dogs who suffer from chronic pain or arthritis and improve the overall health and wellbeing, as well as boost the immune system. Reiki can also help to improve behavior and emotional issues in dogs. It can help to reduce aggression, fear, and anxiety, as well as help to improve communication between the dog and its parent. Many clients come to us seeking help to reduce separation anxiety especially for those returning back to work after extended periods of working from home. Bottom line, Reiki can be a great way to support dogs in New York City to heal and thrive. Psychology Today discusses the positive de-stressing affects reiki has on animals.

During Reiki, we encourage the pet parent to be present in the room while the pet receives reiki. Often the pet will take a few minutes to investigate the room to feel safe. Quite quickly thereafter, the pet feels the energy of reiki in the room and settles in to a comfortable position. The practitioner will then hover their hands or touch the pet lightly sending it the Reiki energy. Pets always welcome this and immediately feel at peace.

At Self Empowered Minds, we encourage both the pet-parent and pet to receive reiki energy together. When both the pet-parent and pet receive the reiki energy, harmonious patterns of health and tranquility emerge and the results are priceless!

Frequently asked questions

Naturally balance your body’s energy

Who can benefit from reiki or energy healing?

All of us! Pregnant women, infants, pets and the elderly. We are all exposed to negative energy on an emotional, physical and spiritual level. Reiki works to release that negative energy allowing us to rise to our potential.


How does reiki or energy healing work?

We all have an energy flowing within us. The Reiki practitioner, with light tough or no touch at all, is a conduit for the reiki energy, sending it, like a current, to the client.  This creates a circuit of flowing energy that will jump start the client’s innate healing power.


Do I feel anything during the session?

Most people will feel the energy of the practitioner much like a gentle vibration as it relaxes the body and opens the channels of awareness and clarity.


Can reiki do harm?

No. Energy is channeled from our higher power for the greatest good of the person receiving it. It comes from a higher plane of existence than the physical world and is guided to where healing needs to take place. For this reason, it is safe and effective.


What if I fall sleep during the session?

Sleeping is a positive indication the practitioner’s energy is being received with the nerves/muscles being relaxed.


How many sessions will I need?

Sessions are one hour. The practitioner will suggest the frequency and number of sessions. Typically several sessions spaced one to two weeks apart are suggested and thereafter once a month maintenance.


What is a Reiki Reading?

Our practitioner is an Intuitive Biological Reiki Practitioner who is able to detect stress blockages in the body and thereby able to report which areas of the body may need additional support.


What is Distant Reiki?

Our minds and body are far more powerful than most people believe. With Distant Reiki, the practitioner is channeling the energy to the client from a distance by setting the mental intention. The recipient experiences a relaxed feeling and often a feeling of vibration surrounding the body.


Our mission is to help you find your inner greatness so you can Live Life Empowered!
