Reiki Sessions

Note: While I currently only include Reiki sessions as part of a Stress Resilience program, I am investigating offering these sessions at a space in Waltham MA. This page will be updated with more details as plans solidify.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a hands-on stress-reduction technique that creates space for your mind-body system to physically, mentally, emotionally, & spiritually heal. Dr. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Usui Reiki technique, opened his first clinic in Tokyo in 1922.

“Just for today, do not worry.” –Dr. Mikao Usui

What can you expect?

You’ll lie comfortably on a massage table or sit in a chair (fully clothed), while gentle music plays in the background. If you are not sensitive to them, scented oils may be used to create a relaxing, spa-like environment where you can really unwind and let go of all your worldly concerns.

During the session, the Reiki practitioner will lightly place or hover their hands in various positions around your head and neck, chest, ribs and abdomen, ankles and feet.

Because everyone has unique challenges, lives, bodies and minds, each person experiences Reiki differently. Here are examples of things you might notice during your session:

  • The practitioner’s hands get hot or cool
  • You feel areas of hot, cool, tingling, or movement in places on or within your body. (These may or may not correspond to where the practitioner’s hands are placed.)
  • Seeing colors or shapes behind your closed eyes
  • Connecting to emotions like sadness or anger—some people cry.
  • You’re so relaxed that after a few moments you drift to sleep.

The effects of a session may last beyond the session itself. Afterwards, clients have reported:

  • Feeling more centered and grounded
  • Seeing colors more vibrantly
  • Having more energy
  • Easier and deeper breathing
  • Experiencing less pain from chronic health issues
  • Feeling more open and aware
  • Faster healing from acute injuries
  • Sleeping more soundly

Who is Reiki good for?

  • Anyone feeling overwhelmed with day-to-day life
  • Caretakers of others, either professionally or personally (e.g. children, elderly parents, those with chronic conditions, etc.)
  • Individuals with chronic stress, illnesses or pain; trouble sleeping or resting / relaxing
  • Anyone looking to make a lasting lifestyle changes (i.e. letting go of a habit and/or reinforcing a new one)
  • Individuals scheduled for a medical procedure, before and after (to help prepare mentally and physically, to handle the actual event, and to recover effectively).

I was skeptical of this practice at first, but no more. I have been so impressed with what I’ve felt both physically and emotionally, that I decided to learn this practice for myself.

Kali is such a wealth of knowledge and is so passionate about everything she does. I have done a few of her workshops and I love her yoga style! I tried Reiki for the first time with her and it was very moving and a great experience. I can’t recommend her enough!

When I left your studio I felt everything was brighter — colors more vivid. As the week had gone on I felt different things: one day my breathing seemed better, and I did seem more relaxed and I had more energy.

Kali brings her knowledge of other systems & practices to Reiki to tie it all together & make it more meaningful.

Gita S.

My main complaints were wrist and side-torso pain, as well as feeling out of sorts. At the end of the treatment I felt completely relaxed and re-energized. Over the next couple of days not only did I feel great, the wrist and side pain, which had plagued me for a number of days, completely disappeared.

Kali is a very intuitive yoga teacher and healer. She is able to provide amazing yoga instruction/therapy, meditation coaching, Reiki healing, nutrition advice and so much more! Her energy is amazing! As a healer myself I have worked with her and seen great results and would not hesitate to refer patients to her.

Dr. Ellen Wolk., Chiropractor

Kali is a really talented and intuitive healer. I’ve been in her group yoga classes and have had Reiki with her. I’ve had a wonderful experience with her. I feel really good after Reiki and very different from when I come in to the session. I also love the impressions and insights Kali offers. I highly recommend her services.
