If you’re seeking stress relief and an opportunity to relax and regroup — then Reiki can help.
We offer private reiki sessions at the farm with option of having your session in the barn with our horses present (and in their stalls). Reiki is a form of biofield therapy based on the belief that there are energy fields that flow through and around your body. When energy is flowing freely through your body, you generally have good emotional, physical and spiritual health. When you are physically or emotionally unwell or depleted, then the energy flow is blocked.
While the client is fully clothed and in a seated or lying position on the massage table, the practitioner’s hands are placed along the body’s energy centres including the head, face, neck, shoulders, upper chest, abdomen, legs, neck and back (similar to the areas used in acupuncture).
The client may experience heat and/or a sensation from the hands of the practitioner. As the session progresses, the client may experience lightness, a flowing sensation, deep relaxation or even sleep.
Reiki is founded on the concept — once known in Western medicine up through the Middle Ages and still seen today in Eastern medicine — that disease is caused by imbalances of vital energy in the body and that correcting these imbalances promotes healing. A combination of Japanese and Chinese word-characters of ‘rei’ (spiritual or supernatural) and “ki” (vital energy). One of the basic ideas held by those who practice reiki is that this vital energy can be channeled to support the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The practice is based on the belief that energy flows through the practitioner to the client.
Reiki supports the healing process and helps us rebalance our mind, body, emotions and spirit. Individual results may vary from client to client and is not intended to treat, diagnose or cure disease. Horses see and connect with the invisible energy around us — that’s why they can support our healing journey — and their presence is offered up as part of your Renegade Ridge Reiki experience.
