While Reiki is not traditional massage therapy per se, it is a naturally complementary healing modality that works in tandem with any sensual or therapeutic massage session. Originating in Japan in the early twentieth century, Reiki is often referred to as “palm healing.” During a Reiki treatment, the therapist may not actually place her hands on the client’s body. Instead, the practitioner may keep her palms inches away from the body, dissolving tension and clearing blockages through energy movement. This makes Reki therapy especially gentle, as it is non-invasive and non-manipulative, unlike traditional massage therapy.
We believe the most effective sensual massage experience is one in which physical and energetic channels are opened to facilitate the most pleasurable outcomes. Since Reiki healing is non-invasive, it is integrated to some degree in all sensual massage and therapeutic massage sessions offered at Maison D' Aphrodite. If you have any questions about the benefits and application of Reiki during your massage, your sensual massage provider can help.
