|Are there different types of Reiki?
Oh, yes. Last count was that 90 different types of Reiki exist. The “traditional” based Reiki is medical/clinical at its core. We have heard about Bicycling Reiki, Angelic Reiki and so on. Since Reiki is to empower us and connect us to mind, body and spirit, I suppose I am not certain how activity and/or mediums can assist with the simplicity of this modality.
This is why we discuss the origin of Reiki and how Western and Eastern Reiki differs. We cannot know someone’s walk or purpose in this life. We cannot diagnose or tell people what they should or should not do. Some will talk of Reiki and Chakras. Chakras originated in India, not Japan. Usui Reiki definitely originated in Japan. Reiki is simple and beautiful in its techniques and results.
What are some misconceptions that people have about a business like yours?
Many misconceptions occur when Reiki is searched on the web. As for the Reiki Center, we state the following:
“We do not diagnose or SEE anything. We do not shuffle cards. We are not clairvoyant. We do not hypnotize, and we are not healers.”
Our Center focuses on Traditional Reiki that is an acceptable and beneficial modality within the clinical and medical environment.
How many employees do you have and what are their roles?
All of the therapists and practitioners are Independent Contractors with the same drive and passion—to bring integrative care to wellness and quality of life to our community. The therapists, practitioners and volunteers assist us with community projects to educate and demonstrate Reiki, Massage, and Essential Oils to the public.
Currently, we have two Licensed Massage Therapists, five Reiki practitioners, eleven Reiki volunteers, and three AromaTouch Technique practitioners.
Does Insurance pay for any of these services?
At the present time, we are aware that the Health Saving Account MAY reimburse for services. This is always a question for the specific carrier and financial institution.
Some insurance carriers MAY reimburse for massage; however, the individual must check with the carrier. We issue receipts that the client can present for reimbursement purposes.
How often do I need a session or therapy?
We will tell you that you need to listen to your body; it will direct your answer. Our clients have a variation of time between sessions. For example, a client comes in for massage once a week to assist with pain management. A Reiki client comes in bi-weekly and some monthly. So, no one can answer the question better than you.
Do you guarantee your work?
There are no guarantees when it comes to your response of what the body needs. This, again, is up to you. Make sure you hydrate, eat correctly, supplement when necessary, make certain the digestion and elimination system is functioning properly. Balance of the body is under your control, not a practitioner or therapist. These modalities are utilized to enhance wellness and quality of life.
**No modality at the Reiki Center can take the place of Traditional Medicine. These modalities are an integrative part of your medical treatment and are not to be used in place of them. Always get your medical advice from a qualified medical professional such as your Primary Care Physician.
