Forest Bathing & Reiki

 

 

I'm pleased to offer forest reiki sessions for those looking for a deeply relaxing and nurturing experience.

Reiki is a Japanese energy healing modality: A hands-on technique that promotes wellness on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. As an earth-based healing practitioner, I integrate ceremony, song, and drumming or rattling into my sessions. Before your reiki session begins, you will be briefed on what to expect and will be asked questions so that I know how best to serve you. 

A complete reiki session is offered to a fully clothed recipient who is lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably in a chair. Most commonly, reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner's hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso. Each reiki healing treatment is unique and deeply relaxing. Everyone will have a different experience during treatment. Some will feel heat, tingling, or maybe nothing at all. Regardless of the strength or subtlety of your experience, the energy is working.
 

Reiki is more effective when done regularly. Your body intuitively knows how much to release at any given time.  The more reiki you receive, the faster toxins and imbalances can move out of your body. I suggest that you begin with committing to a minimum of 4 reiki sessions to experience maximum benefit.  


Benefits of reiki Include

  • Feeling rejuvenated and energized

  • Promotion of deep emotional release in a safe environment

  • Acceleration of physical healing

  •  Relaxation, peace of mind

  • Loosening of blocked energy and promotion of well-being

  • Relief from anxiety and depression


Weather permitting, your reiki session will take place in a comfortable outdoor space in the natural and healing environment of Ravenwood. In the case of inclement weather, we will complete your treatment indoors. After your reiki session, give yourself time to walk through Ravenwood's beautiful forest paths and enjoy the calming and restorative practice of forest bathing.

Forest Bathing at Ravenwood

Shinrin-yoku is a term that means "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing." It was developed and popularized in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine. Long before the popularization of Shinrin-yoku, forests have always provided people with life-giving gifts and medicine. Ravenwood inspires, transforms, and nurtures all who visit. Located on 40 private acres bordering the crystal clear waters of the Salmon River, Ravenwood features majestic old-growth forest, grassy meadows, and countless species of edible and culturally significant plants and animals and beautiful mossy paths for you to walk barefoot. 

 

Benefits of forest bathing include

  • Boosted immune system functioning                                           

  • Reduced blood pressure

  • Reduced stress

  • Improved mood

  • Increased ability to focus

  • Accelerated recovery from surgery or illness

  • Increased energy level

  • Improved sleep
