What is Reiki and Why Bring It to Your Practice?


REI: universal life energy; spiritual consciousness; all-knowing. KI: breath; life force; vital radiant energy; prana.

Reiki is an alternative energy healing modality with roots based in Japan. Recipients of Reiki increase the opportunity to accelerate their body’s natural, innate and internal healing response. There is no physical manipulation whatsoever during a traditional Reiki session; everything is done on a purely energetic level. 

During a Reiki treatment, hands are placed on the body with light touch or just above the body with no touch as the practitioner allows energy to channel out their hands and into the recipient. Your experience is completely unique to you and could include intuitive insights, lighter thoughts, relaxation, pain relief, balance of one or more chakras, improved immune function and a restored feeling of wellbeing. 

A slow moving, gentle yoga class is the perfect pairing for experiencing Reiki, such as Yin Yoga. The long holds of ground postures in Yin Yoga give time for a Reiki Master to spend moments with you in stillness of your body and mind.

Yin Yoga teacher, Kimberly Ghorai, invited her dear friend and local Breckenridge Reiki Master, Janette Mikity, to share her energy work at a special two hour class in August 2017. Janette has been studying health, wellbeing, and self mastery practices for over 35 years. She knows a tremendous amount about coming back from disease and personal unbalance through her own journey with trauma, chronic stress, adrenal fatigue, decreased immune functioning, and her return to physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health. Janette took her first Reiki training in 2012 and is currently sharing her knowledge or energy and Reiki by teaching trainings herself and offering individual sessions both in person and through distance sessions. Gifted with intuition and clairvoyance, she helps people find renewed hope, peace and freedom to move in the direction of their heart’s desires and dreams.

Look out for the next collaborative practice with Kimberly and Janette and for Reiki trainings coming in the future!
