Reiki is a gentle, nurturing, hands-on wellness practice. Reiki promotes relaxation and the smooth flow of subtle energy, known as ki or chi. Reiki is an excellent complementary method. It is not medical care. It can be used independently for vitality and stress management.
A Reiki session involves light touch with the client fully clothed, on a bodywork table or in a chair. Most people find Reiki to be very pleasant and relaxing. Reiki can also be performed remotely, across physical distance.
Reiki is founded on the work of Mikao Usui, a spiritual seeker who was born in Japan in the late 1800s. During a session, the Reiki practitioner acts as a conduit for universal energies that balance and support the healing process.
My sessions and classes are well-grounded in a traditional Reiki style that has preserved original teachings. My background in counseling and my training in a variety of traditional wellness practices enriches my work with Reiki clients and students.
Reiki and other forms of energy work can provide effective complementary care and assistance for a variety of life challenges. Reiki, and any form of energy work, is not medical treatment and is not a substitute for medical or psychological care. The increased relaxation and vitality that energy work can create tends to be particularly effective for people dealing with stress, injuries, concussion, surgery preparation and recovery, trauma, anxiety, spiritual development, and fulfillment of life goals.
“Without reservation, I highly recommend Clara for all aspects of Reiki. In 2010, I had a concussion. Clara was there to help, and I was able to resume my work. In 2012, when I was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor, once again Clara was there to help me. In 2016, I was diagnosed with a very rare form of lymphoma on my liver…aggressive cancer. They gave me 6 months to live. With a variety of treatments and with Clara’s Reiki help, I’m doing great. The doctors at Dana Farber can’t figure out how I can still be alive.” — Diane Stoler, Ed.D.
Clara is compassionate and intuitive. Following each Reiki session, I felt profoundly peaceful and relaxed. — Sue C.
