Reiki is love.
Love is wholeness.
Wholeness is balance.
Balance is well being.
Well being is freedom from disease.
– Dr. Mikao Usui
What Is Reiki
Having originated in Japan in the early 1900s, Reiki is a gentle treatment now used worldwide to treat the recipient physically, emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually. Spiritual in nature, Reiki therapy brings the body into a state of relaxation and balance. Given on its own, or complementary to other healing modalities, Reiki promotes the recipient’s natural healing. Dono Bella offers in-person Reiki therapies, including Reiki healings, to residents of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Crystal Grids, virtual, and distance Reiki are also available.
What Should I Expect
Reiki can be practiced in many different ways, in person or from a distance. Whether attending a Reiki session online or in person, dress comfortably so that your body can be at rest. Following a series of hand positions (typically from head to feet), the practitioner may hover his/her hands just above your body, or touch you gently. You remain fully clothed during the sessions, except for shoes, and may receive it sitting in a chair, lying on a bed or massage table.
How Will It Feel
The most common feeling during and following a Reiki session is relaxed and peaceful. However, there is no correct answer or way to feel. Often a recipient’s stomach will rumble, limbs may twitch, or many even fall asleep. Reiki therapy works with the universal life energy that flows through us all, and is working no matter what your personal physical or emotional response.
I received Reiki treatment from Nicole, founder of Dono Bella, after my first child was born. I was anxious, overwhelmed, and seriously underprepared for the turmoil that motherhood would bring. Emotionally, I was extremely fragile and my personal relationships and career were suffering, too. As soon as I got on the table, Nicole’s strongly intuitive presence relaxed me and I felt like I was in the perfect hands at the perfect time. I left our session feeling centered and calm again for the first time in almost a year, and continued to feel grounded for weeks after. I also left with important information about how to continue to nurture the shifts that Nicole’s Reiki treatment had brought to me. HIGHLY recommend!
