My name is Andrea Saccoccia. I was a hairstylist for seventeen years when I started experiencing horrific headaches. I soon realized that I had developed a severe allergy to all the harsh chemicals I had been using. The allergy was so intense that it forced me to quit my almost twenty-year career. I started getting reiki treatments to help eliminate my headaches and to clear all of the toxins from my body. I felt a significant difference after receiving a reiki treatment. I was much calmer and my headaches started to decrease. Because of the significant changes I was experiencing, I decided to learn reiki myself. I took the courses from 2010-2011. I am now a third level reiki master. Reiki has helped to transform my life. I am very grateful that I was introduced to reiki. Now it is my turn to introduce it to you.
What is Reiki?
"Rey-Key" is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on the idea that "life force energy" flows through us to be alive.
Reiki is made up of two Japanese words-Rei which means "God's wisdom or the Higher Power and Ki which means "life force energy". Reiki comes from the higher power. It flows through the practitioner hands, to the client.
During a treatment, the client lays on a massage table fully clothed. The practitioner lays his/her hands on the client's body in a series of hand positions throughout the body. A treatment feels like "a warm blanket enveloping your body".It treats the whole person including body, emotion, mind and spirit. Creating many beneficial effects that include a feeling of relaxation and peace. A typical treatment lasts from 45-90 minutes.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing. It is very beneficial in promoting a sense of peace and wellbeing
What is Smudging?
Smudging or Saging is a sacred ceremony in which you burn sacred plants, such as sage, to allow the smoke to clear and bless a place or person. It is a way to clear negative and stagnant energy away from you and your surroundings. If you are feeling negative, sluggish or even depressed, it may be due to the negative energy in and around you. This negative energy can have extremely detrimental effects on your mental and physical state.
Smudging can combat this by clearing away this unfavorable energy.Smudging your space, home, or office, or even your body is like taking an energetic shower, or doing a deep metaphysical cleansing. The smoke from the dried sage actually changes the ionic composition of the air, and can have a direct effect on reducing our stress response.To do a smudging you take a lit bundle of sage and wave the smoke into all corners, across door ways and into shadow spaces. The negative energy will "attach" itself to the smoke. Once the space is cleared, you go throughout and open all the windows to allow the smoke to escape along, along with the negativity.
Andrea was amazing!! It was a relaxing experience, would highly recommend her for a great experience.
