Energy Healing

Everything is made of energy. In this healing service, our ALTYR practitioners keep life force energy flowing through and around you as they study your vibration to clear what’s blocked, heal what’s broken, and recover what feels lost. Emerge feeling relaxed yet energized with this restorative treatment that has historical roots around the world.

Known to help reduce anxiety and stress and help alleviate depression. Can release body tension and aid in pain management. Good for combating fatigue, promoting restful sleep and improving mood.

Your energy healing session will take place in a quiet, comfortable, environment. Most professional Reiki practitioners have a dedicated space where they practice and can create such a space when making house calls. Often, soft music may be played during the session to help mask ambient noise. If you prefer silence, let your practitioner know.

Energy healing sessions are performed on a fully clothed recipient who is either lying on a treatment table or sitting in a comfortable chair. Most commonly, Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch. The hand placement will never be intrusive, and no pressure is applied.

You may feel either warmth, coolness or an energy where the ALTYR practitioner places their hands. You may feel any of a number of sensations such as waves, pulsations, or dreamlike states, all of which are normal energy healing experiences. Many first time recipients may not feel anything at all or feel results later in the day or week, but will notice more changes as they continue a Reiki practice.
If you have music that you particularly enjoy and which is relaxing, bring it to your session and ask the practitioner to play it. Otherwise, your practitioner will play an ALTYR song list. You can also request silence if you prefer. Use the restroom before your session so that you are able to lie down comfortably. If you have any shyness, anxiety, or reservations about the touch involved during your session, make sure to communicate any specific needs to your ALTYR practitioner. Your practitioner will ask you this ahead of time, but it always helps to be clear about what you are comfortable with. If you have any injuries or illnesses, or a certain area of the body you want to focus on healing, please inform your practitioner.

The rest of the work will be done by your ALTYR practitioner and the energy flowing through and around you. Relax, breathe, and heal as your life force is energized.
Make sure to drink plenty of water to hydrate your body. Your body’s energy system may be moving at a more optimum rate, so take extra care of yourself with water and healthy food during the day. Spend some quiet time the day or night after your session to journal, meditate, or reflect on your session and any insights that may have come up since.

Reiki energy healing does not end when your session does. You may feel prolonged effects, an uplifting feeling, or higher energy levels as the healing continues. Support your Reiki healing with a meditation practice, yoga, exercise, or contemplation. When you feel ready, contact your ALTYR practitioner to schedule a follow up session.
Energy healing focuses on treating the energy in your body and mind. Reiki, translated to universal life force energy, is a healing technique based on the idea that the practitioner can channel energy into the recipient by means of light touch to activate natural healing processes of the body and promote physical and emotional well-being. The term Reiki is composed of two separate words, Rei and Ki. Rei alludes to the higher intelligence that guides the creation and flow of the universe. Ki, or chi in some cultures, is the non-physical energy that animates all living things. Energy healing works on the human energy field, producing measurable electric and magnetic effects that act on living tissue in your body. Research has shown that different cycles per second, or Hertz (Hz), produce different effects on the body. Studies find that 2 Hz promotes nerve regenerations, 7 Hz stimulates bone growth, 10 Hz helps repair ligaments, and 15 Hz helps form capillaries. Practitioners will first scan the recipient, using their non-dominant hand to sense where the healing needs to occur. Slight changes in temperature, pressure, pulsations, or tingling will indicate to the ALTYR practitioner that that area needs to be healed. The practitioner will then use both hands to begin healing. Once they no longer feel such energetic changes, the area is healed and they can move to another. Since energy flows through all things, energy healing can be done remotely as well. Distance Reiki occurs when an ALTYR practitioner focuses their energy on the recipient’s name, picture, or specific question or issue. During the actual session, you can be on the phone with the practitioner, in a state of meditation or relaxation, or driving to work. You will receive the energy in all cases, sometimes more immediately if you are currently engaged with your practitioner. Effects may be experienced shortly after if you were doing something else at the time. Reiki can be administered by practitioners who have training, often passed down to them by a Reiki teacher.
