FAQs

Are distant energy healing sessions available? How do distant sessions work?

Yes, you can receive Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy in the comfort of your own home. You will receive the same energy and experience that you would receive in person since energy travels through time and space. Distant energy healing works because we’re all connected through our life-force. Once a person has been attuned to Reiki or Integrated Energy Therapy, all that is needed is the intention to send energy for the client’s best interest.

What should I know before my energy healing session?

Parita will explain energy healing and guide you into a meditation at the beginning of your session. You don’t have to have knowledge of the angelic realm, or the source of Reiki to receive. Simply set the intention to receive and observe your healing. Approach the appointment with an open mind and trust your evolution!

Do I have to believe in any ideology to practice Reiki or Integrated Energy Therapy?

No, you don’t have to practice any particular religion or believe in any philosophy. You are free to believe and have faith in whatever you choose. At the most basic level, Reiki is spiritually-guided life-force energy and Integrated Energy is the energy of compassion. 

What can I expect from my energy healing session?

Clients relax, fully clothed, on a massage table during an energy healing. Before the session, we discuss any concerns and areas that need balancing in the client’s mind, body or soul.

My sessions are hands-off. I work in my client’s aura or energy field and don’t make physical contact.

During the session, clients may feel tingling, warmth, coolness, or simply relaxed in a meditative state. Some clients may see colors or receive an intuitive message. You may or may not fall asleep. Regardless of whether you feel sensations or not, know that the energy is moving through you for your highest good. Each session varies and you will receive healing according to what is most important in your life at the moment.

At the end of a session, I will help ground your energy. I will help you process your experience and share my observations with you. I often include crystals and essential oils in my sessions.

What should I expect after my session?

Most people feel relaxed, refreshed or vibrant after a session. Some people may be tired or need extra sleep for the next 1-2 days. This is because their body is detoxing and adjusting to it’s new frequency. Drink extra water to support your body’s healing. Trust that you’ve received the healing that you were ready to experience at this point in time. Some people notice that their old thought patterns or feelings come up to be healed and released. To further support yourself, you can meditate or journal about your experience. Reach out to your practitioner if you need further guidance.

Can I learn energy healing?

Yes; absolutely. All you need is the curiosity to learn and experience. I would be happy to introduce you to my Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy teachers.

You do not need to have any prior experience in the healing arts nor do you have to be intuitive. You don’t have to have a meditation practice to get started. Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy are taught in 3-4 levels, however you can treat yourself by completing the first level of training.

Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy is taught with an attunement process in which the teacher uses symbols, mantras and breathework to clear a student’s channels. After the attunement, Reiki and Integrated Energy will flow from the student’s hands anytime they put their hands on themselves or others

How are Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy different from each other?

Reiki was discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui of Japan in 1922 while Integrated Energy Therapy was channeled from Angel Ariel to Steven Thayer in 1987.

Reiki is translated as “spiritually-guided life-force energy” while Integrated Energy Therapy works with the violet angelic ray.

What similarities are there between Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy?

Both Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy are attunement-based energy healing modalities. They support clients’ mind, body and soul by helping them relax, clear unresolved emotions and connect to their true self. Both healing modalities are safe and gentle.

Who is energy healing for?

People of all ages and walks of life that are ready for transformation, both inner and outer, try energy healing. 

Energy healing is for those who are open to the idea that their past experiences, thoughts, and feelings have altered their lifeforce energy. It’s for the people who realize that their illness and suffering, whether it’s mental, emotional or physical, can have an energetic root.

Reiki, Chakra Balancing & IET is resourceful for those who are open to connecting to Divinity – the love, light, creative, and intuitive energies within you or a Higher Source.

How do people feel in an energy healing?

Most feel calm, balanced, and relaxed. Some release emotion and memories through tears, a smile, or laughter. During the session, clients are aware and conscious throughout. It’s not an out of body experience.

Afterwards, clients often feel clear-headed and grounded. Some note that they can breathe more easily after stagnant energies have been released.

Occasionally, people will have a detox reaction in which they feel tired or have a headache for 1-2 days. In this case, it’s recommended that they drink a lot of water and take time to introspect. Here’s how you can prepare for your Reiki healing.

Is energy healing safe?

Yes – energy healing is a safe, and noninvasive complementary form of therapy. It’s a natural modality for the purpose of pain management, stress reduction and relaxation.
