Annapolis Healing


Reiki is a form of complementry medicine that is used for stress reduction and relaxation. Reiki is typically used for wellness as it is not a cure for a disease or an illness. 


Reiki originated as a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on the philosophy of life force energy that flows through our body. If an individual's "life force energy" is low, then they are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, they are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.


A typical session can be 60 to 90 minutes long. A discussion will usually take place during an initial session with Deanna. She will describe the session and give the client an opportunity to discuss any particular problems or issues they are experiencing and ask them what they are hoping to achieve from their session.


For the actual session, the client will rest comfortably on a massage table on their back with their shoes removed. Reiki can be performed with the client sitting comfortably in a chair as well. Unlike massage therapy, no articles of clothing are removed and a client is always fully clothed; loose, comfortable clothing is suggested. A session can either be hands-on, where Deanna will apply a light touch during the session, or hands-off where they will hold their hands slightly above your body. If a client prefers not to be touched they can request this before they begin.

The session will then proceed with Deanna moving through specific standard Reiki hand positions beginning at the person’s head or feet. A recipient of Reiki might feel a warming sensation or a tingling during the session or nothing at all but sheer relaxation. The session should be a very pleseant experience.
