The practitioner's hands transmit energy - several minutes at a time at certain key places around your head, shoulders, stomach, legs, knees and feet - you are fully clothed. This may include helping you identify the emotional conflict leading to your physical symptoms so you can have relief! Sometimes problem areas get lots of extra attention and are targeted - clearing, release or balancing. The client remains fully clothed at all times. 
Chakras are always cleared and recharged as an essential part of each session.
If a client wishes to work on specific issues or health problems, it's advisable to book several one-hour treatments. But first come by for one treatment to see if you like the experience.

You may feel any number of sensations when your body processes this healing energy - tingling, warmth, joy, sleepiness, stress release, insights, emotional release, reduction of pain and / or a sense of serenity and a feeling of deep relaxation. MAYBE WE'LL DISCOVER SOME UNDERLYING UNRESOLVED SHOCKS / CHRONIC ISSUES that may be time to disolve.

Your "inner physician" knows best what it needs and has an amazing innate sense of how to direct the new energy for its maximum use and to the most needed organs, chakras or tissues.

... a perfect way to spoil yourself.

Feeling a bit rusty? No worries! That's why we have Reiki Exchanges.
Group treatments allows everyone to give and receive Reiki and allows an opportunity to increase our Reiki session experience; to meet Reiki like-minded friends; and to abandon any thoughts of being "rusty".
When we gather we share insights with one another, deepen our practice and increase harmony.

Hope to see you!
(Feel free to bring a snack to share for after.)

A... REIKI - distance Reiki healing sessions

The logistics are simple. I'll need a good connection with you and as much information as possible – this can be achieved with a preliminary phone call or email and with a recent photo. Then we'll want to set a time(s) and you can be in a quiet receiving state – the best way for allowing the energy to flow.

Some thoughts and/or sensations may occur during your healing session. I scan your body to find areas of energetic imbalance that need to be dealt with at that moment, as well as emotional issues that you think are important for that session and I also work with the blockages at the core of your physical or emotional challenges or distress.

I will have information to share afterwards, so the session can end with another conversation or an email – and this also ties up loose ends – even though the energy will be received whether there is any communication or not.

Permission is a requirement. And even more beautiful: you don’t even need to believe in Reiki for it to work. (And if you are adamant against receiving it, then you will not receive it.)

Skeptics often believe in prayer but not in Reiki. Prayer is done with mind, clear intention, love and positive feelings, in a non-local manner. Many studies have proven that prayer heals. AND more is better and that prayer adds longevity, vitality and uplifted spirits. Prayers are usually shorter but often done with as much concentrated energy and love as Reiki, sent by a Reiki Master – so the outcomes can only be as good or better.

There's lots more information on distance healing in the Reiki Section - 5th article down.
Enjoy the read.

All you'll need to do is phone, text or email and leave your name, number and a good time to contact you or click over to the “contact us” section and send me some information about yourself and what you are looking for. I will call or email you to set up a specific time. All work is done by appointment.

The Reiki Distance Healing package: five 30 minute sessions with a 5 minute telephone conversation before and after for each healing time we set.
Prepaid $175Cdn.

Merrie Bakker

I was introduced to Reiki, Reflexology and Dowsing in the late 1990's. After exploring many methods of self-awareness training, taking a plethora of energy work, body/mind, alternative healing classes, I knew I had finally found, amongst these varied and often awesomely inspiring and wondrous modalities, the key elements that were integral to healing the way I wanted to integrate and present them.

$80 single session - one+ hour
$350 - five sessions - prepaid package

On your first visit we'll quickly discuss your health issues and take notes. Then your specific challenges can be addressed.

Normally, the sensation that reflexology creates is pleasant, relaxing and soothing. There may be the odd discomfort in some places, but this is fleeting and acts as an indication of congestion or imbalance and lets us know where to be more gentle and spend more time. Pain is not part of Reflexology!

(Reflexolgy is NOT meant to hurt - there is no gain in pain. Nor is it pleasant for reflexology to be done so lightly that little sensation is created - we aim to get it just right.)

  • Feeling a sense of well-being and relaxation;
  • Feeling an upsurge of energy, as your body adjusts.
  • Learning as much self help at each session as you feel like, to take home.
  • Your entire body, including your organs, muscles and chakras are reflected on your feet. I specifically focus on your whole spine and nervous system. I "thumb walk" and massage your feet and pamper your skin.
  • tired, plantar fasciitis, bunions, gout, neuropathy, bone spurs, arthritis, neuromas, tarsal tunnel syndrome, or just plain over worked?  "from Academy of Ancient Reflexology"

Treat yourself to a Reflexology session if....

  • you juggle time, commitments and a hectic schedule
  • your lifestyle never affords you time to sit back, reflect and recharge
  • tiredness leaves it’s mark and recouping from small health setbacks take longer
  • you wake up in the middle of the night, worrying
  • you hope that previous health issues have totally healed and are not going to repeat themselves
  • you know or feel that continuous stress will take it’s toll
  • you are challenged with stress and health issues and want to be proactive

When clients come to me with complaints, my approach is always holistic. The physical, mental, emotional and even sometimes the spiritual are all intimately intertwined - it’s impossible to separate them from each other.

Sustainable homeostasis of your health is my objective. In Reflexology, as with the other holistic and energetic healing modalities that we practice, the healer is the client, not the practitioner.

The intention, skill and caring of the practitioner is key and the clients’ own natural energies do the healing. You already have the resources within you that are needed to restore your health; your body just needs to be able to draw upon these for rebalancing with particular stimulation.

  • Reflexology can help you alleviate symptoms of many health issues
  • Reflexology can rebalance your energies and help your "inner physician"
  • Reflexology can lead to stress relief and emotional release
  • Reflexology complements all other types of therapies ~ allopathic and alternative

Ever wondered if you can learn Reflexology? How long would it take? Would you like to be able to give stress relief to yourself, friends and loved ones?
