The Power of Reiki
Rei means Universal and Ki means Life Force Energy. This Japanese Healing Art works with the human energy system, amplifying the biological intelligence which governs the body’s natural resources to heal.
Physical pain and disorder is associated with energy imbalance. When stress is introduced physically, mentally, or emotionally, it causes resistance and disruption to certain energy centers within the body creating deficiencies, sluggishness, negative thoughts and feelings, pain, illness, and disease. Reiki provides stress reduction and relaxation as it promotes your body’s own natural healing. It is given by a practitioner by laying on hands and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. The practice of Reiki both increases the life force energy and works to raise the vibration of the Ki to remove blockages and restore health by restoring a healthy flow of life energy. Reiki is safe, effective and a scientifically validated therapy.
Life Force “Energy” is the essence that gives vitality to form. It is the primary activating energy of life and the underlying intelligence that organizes our world and everything in it. Every living thing lives inside of this force field. This universal energy is seen as the basic constituent and source of all life. This energy flows through the human energy system, supporting physical function, mental equilibrium, and emotional stability.

During the session the client’s energy system is first surveyed for energy blockages. Reiki is then administered through light touch by the practitioner. The client will lay down, close their eyes and drift off into deep relaxation as the Reiki Practitioner places their hands lightly on various body positions on their head, torso, arms, legs and feet. A full session usually takes from 60 90 minutes. Clients often experience seeing colors or patterns and experiencing tingling, heat or other subtle sensations where the practitioner’s hands are placed. At the end of the session, clients typically report feeling deeply relaxed and refreshed. It is this deep state of relaxation that allows the body’s own healing power to work most effectively. The client is fully clothed for the Reiki session.

CD(DONA), Bilingual (English and Spanish),
Paige spent a number of years in the small mountain town of Manitou Springs, Colorado. The town is most famous for its natural springs, Ute Indian grounds, and healing community. Manitou gave her the foundation she needed to better understand holistic medicine. In 2011 she apprenticed under Reiki Master, Barbara Scott, who taught her the power of healing touch and the science of thought. She also attended various energy healing workshops in Chiapas, Mexico learning ancient forms of Mayan healing. When she returned to the United States in 2013 she continued her Reiki education to the Master/ Teacher level and gives healing sessions as well as one-on-one attunements to those who are interested in pursuing the healing touch path.
I remember feeling so honored to know Paige after my first healing session with her. She is a clear channel with a strong heart who can really move energy! What gifts and teachings she has received are something special, mysterious and beautiful. Each time with her was always deeply settling and transformative, an experience I would wish for every soul I love.
