About Ashley (the practitioner): Ashley is a certified Usui Reiki Master Practitioner, member of the International Association of Reiki Professionals and has been practicing Reiki since 2014. Ashley treats her clients in a relaxing spa-like environment. Every aspect of the session with her is to help promote the most healing for the client.
Ashley knew from a young age that she wanted to help others in some way. It wasn’t until 2014, that she discovered the avenue in which she felt passionate to help. At that time, she was introduced to Reiki through a meditation group she was a part of. Getting sessions for herself opened her eyes to this beautiful healing technique. It helped her feel happier and more balanced like never before. Getting certified was the next natural step for her, so that she could help others experience the deep healing that comes with Reiki. Ashley is a member of the International Association of Reiki Professionals (IARP).
What to expect during a session: When a client comes in for a session, it can run about 30 minutes over the selected appointment time frame. Example: A 1 hour session will last about 90 minutes. This is so first time clients can fill in the new client form, and also to discuss the reason for the visit, and how the session went afterwards. The client will lay face up on the massage table (fully clothed) with their eyes closed. Soothing Reiki music will be played during the session to help with relaxation. As the session begins, Ashley will lay hands (or hover) on each chakra (energy center) in the body of the client as she channels the Reiki energy. There are 7 main chakras and each of them deals with different emotional and physical issues. At times, certain chakras can be blocked. The Reiki flows naturally wherever is needed in the client. Most
clients say they feel warmth or tingling during a session. There are times that a client may not feel anything, but please know that the Reiki is still flowing.
If a client chooses to do a Crystal Reiki session, it will involve adding crystals/stones to either all chakras, or the most needed areas. Each crystal has been carefully selected to promote healing for physical and emotional needs that correlate to each chakra in the body. Crystals and stones add an extra healing element to Reiki.
After the session is over, Ashley will discuss what she felt and ask how the session went for the client. During the session, Ashley will sometimes get intuitive messages about what may be going on with the client, and the areas that felt blocked. Ashley will also discuss ways the client can do things at home in between sessions.
