Known by many names in cultures throughout the world: Qi, Prana, Reiki, Orgone, Universal Life Force, Zero Point, Aether, etc…. all speak of the same fundamental energy that permeates all living beings, the animating force of life itself.
By working directly on this subtle level, we can move stagnation and blocks to the flow of life through us and discover more of the joy and open-heartedness that is our birthright.
What is Arkaya?
Arkaya Healing is rooted in the ancient Yogic healing methodology – using gentle energy healing, realignment practices & touch to address physical, emotional, mental and energetic blockages or imbalances in the human system.
An in-depth assessment of the flow of energy through the different centers in the body will enable the enhanced movement of prana or life force. As a result, you will experience greater mental clarity, emotional & pain relief, optimized health & energy flow, and organ functioning. The sessions also enable self-awareness, self-discovery as well as body, emotion and mind management through verbal sharing, clarifying & reframing.
The Arkaya Yogic Healing system realigns you in a very unique manner – working not only on a conscious level, but also on a subconscious and energetic level. This allows for the unfolding of your highest and most expansive potential in life.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese healing technique, developed in the early 19th century, by Dr. Mikau Uusi for stress reduction, relaxation, enlightenment and healing. It is administered by the laying on of hands, and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through all of us, and is what causes us to be alive.
If one’s life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy, healthy and calm when dealing with stressful situations. Reiki safely facilitates the healing of energetic blockages that manifest in our physical, mental and emotional bodies.
By healing these energetic blockages Reiki helps increase the vibration of our personal energetics. Increasing your personal energetics allows for you to naturally gravitate towards things and people that are good for you, while at the same time helping you move away from things and people that are draining.
“Reiki is love, love is wholeness, wholeness is well-being, well-being is freedom” -Dr. Mikau Usui
What to expect
A typical Arkaya Healing session will last about an hour with you lying either face up or face down in a quiet, relaxing space. Both touch and non-touch methods of rebalancing and healing are used. The touch will range from slight to mild pressure. Essential oil blends may also be used to clear space.
The sessions are deeply relaxing and help to unravel pent up stresses, emotions and limiting beliefs. The use of breath work at certain intervals may also be encouraged. You may feel subtle sensations in different bodily areas arise and release as you are being worked on, giving way to feelings of warmth, lightness and contentment.
It is encouraged to take a few minutes of rest after an Arkaya session, to integrate the deeper shifts before returning back to life in a gentle way. Also, drinking lots of water and getting a good rest in the next coming days is beneficial.
