The Magic of Reiki Healing
for the Perinatal Period

Reiki has been a game changer in my life and practice. I have seen people who didn't believe in it be completely wow'd and transformed by the effects it can have on the mind and body. Especially in the perinatal period (Perinatal = before, during and after birth)

But what is Reiki ?

Reiki is a Japanese form of  stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is a healing technique based on the principle that a practioner can channel energy into the client by means of touch or distance, to activate the natural healing processes of the person's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.

Reiki in the perinatal period can help with stats like:

  • 78% improvement in pain

  • 80% improvement in nausea

  • 86% improvement in sleep

  • 94% improvement in anxiety

  • reduction of C-section rate from 20% to 5%

(Taken from a research study at Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut in 1999-2000)

Also helps in womb healing from prior losses, healing from trauma from birth, postpartum depression & anxiety, sleep issues, infertility and so much more!

This healing technique allows you to fully relax and bring your nervous system into the "rest and digest" parasympathetic state so that you can calm the mind and experience true healing from within. As an educator, coach, and doula, I have seen it again and again... Stress, anxiety, pain, and dysfunction in the body's system is only intensified in the perinatal period. Often pregnancy and birth are given the "Nocebo effect" where providers are looking for what's wrong instead of highlighting what's right and therefore oftentimes causing the very dis-ease they are trying to avoid. From pre-conception to postpartum and beyond, reiki can be a beautiful and affordable addition to your healthcare.
