Lindsay received her initial Reiki training shortly before graduating from massage school. She realized she had clients on the horizon who were too fragile to receive even the gentlest relaxation massages, but who still wanted healing touch. Reiki was a good way to help those specific people.
Reiki is bodywork that falls under the category of “energy work.” It is extremely relaxing to receive, and while it’s wonderful for fragile elders, those suffering from headaches, writer’s block or depression, or those exhausted by chemotherapy treatments, anyone can enjoy a Reiki session and its benefits. The technique is hands-on, but the recipient does not need to remove any clothing. Similar to reflexology, Reiki can be incorporated into a regular massage if the client would like.
