Reiki and massage therapy are excellent therapeutic compliments to each other.  The application of Reiki energy achieves several things that allow massage therapy techniques to be even more effective.  It conveys feelings of deep relaxation, peace and calm which encourages opening in all of the tissues and the release of chronic holding patterns in the muscles, tendons and ligaments.  It often induces deep trance states which are extremely healing on the physical and energetic levels.  In addition to all of this, the client is still receiving all of the many emotional benefits of Reiki at the same time.

 

As far as the flow of the session, it will begin with several Reiki holds, and there will be some additional moments in the session when Reiki is being performed by itself.  However the bulk of the session will be Reiki and massage done simultaneously.

Reiki and Fascial Release are exceptionally well suited to working together therapeutically.  They both engender a dynamic stillness which is at once active and at rest.  The fascia is a web of connective tissue that surrounds and supports all of the structures in the body.  It is an intelligent, potently resonant and electromagnetic tissue.  Fascia is an excellent conduit for Reiki energy because it performs many of the same functions in the body that Reiki is well known for bolstering.  It supports all of the tissues, allows for stability along with dynamic articulation, brings fresh nutrients and clears away waste, all while continually bathing the cells and tissues in the information that they need to function vibrantly.  It has been theorized that emotional blockages are closely related to immobility of the fascia, often in specific locations in the body.  If this is true, then Reiki is already highly fascial in a sense, because it is capable of clearing emotional blockages from the body.  Combining Reiki and myofascial therapy creates a synergy that magnifies both of their effects.  Reiki may also support an increase in bodily awareness on the part of the client, enabling them to more easily integrate the effects of the session, and fostering a more stable long term benefit.

Other Polices

Client/Therapist Relationship

The therapist and client's relationship will be based on a mutual intention of supporting the client strictly in their therapeutic goals.

Scope of Practice

The therapist will only provide services for which they are qualified.  If a therapist is unable to provide the support a client needs, they can refer the client to the appropriate professionals.

Client Rights

We encourage clients to speak up about their needs and preferences, such as areas they'd like to have more or less attention, or anything that would help them be more comfortable.  A client's input will always be accepted and appreciated.

Confidentiality

Every client's privacy and confidentiality will be upheld at all times.  Except for the case of a court subpoena, the therapists' records are kept strictly confidential.
 

Privacy and Undraping

In most cases, the client undresses completely for a massage; however it is entirely up to every client's discretion the level at which they feel comfortable disrobing.  The client is afforded time to undress alone before the massage begins.  During the massage, only the area of the client's body that is being worked on will be uncovered – the rest will be draped with linens.  A client's privacy and modesty will always be respected.
 
Fees, Cancellations, and Late Policy
Tips may be given at the client's discretion – they are never expected and always appreciated.
Payment is expected to pay at the time of service unless other arrangements are made ahead of time. We accept cash and credit cards.
If a therapist must cancel a session, they will try to give the client 24 hours notice.  Furthermore, they will offer to find the client another qualified therapist, or to reschedule the appointment at a $10 discount.
If a client must cancel an appointment, this must be done 24 hours in advance.  If a client fails to do so, they may be charged for the session (except in cases of emergency).
If a client is late to a session, the therapist will do their best to accommodate and fit in a full session.  However, if scheduling does not allow for this, the client will still be charged for the full session.

 

Hygiene

Therapists will have washcloths available for clients who would like to clean up before their session.  Therapists ask that clients please be mindful of cleanliness for the session.  Likewise therapists work in only sanitary conditions, using clean sheets for every session and sanitizing hands and arms before sessions and as needed throughout.

 

Safety and Inappropriate Behavior

The safety and comfort of both therapist and client are very important.  Either can terminate the session at any time if uncomfortable for any reason.
Intoxicant Policy:  Alcohol and drugs can significantly reduce the benefits of massage, and may even cause harm.  Therefore, if a client comes to a session under the influence, the therapist may refuse to offer their services, and the client will still be charged for the session.

 

Sexual Misconduct

The therapists provide only therapeutic massage, which is strictly non-sexual/sensual.  Inappropriate verbal or non-verbal sexual behavior would result in termination of the session and reimbursement in full.
