Reiki is Our Answer to Chaos and Stress


Stacey Lynn Avidane is the newest addition to the Ciminelli Team! She is a yoga practitioner and licensed esthetician. Stacey specializes in Reiki, reflexology, crystal healing and energy work, and has a very unique ability to rid the body of negative energy and bring it to a peaceful state. In addition to working with us, she also works with pediatric hospital patients who have cancer and other serious illnesses. We sat down with her to ask her about the importance of getting Reiki treatments.

What is Reiki?
Reiki means universal and ki means energy; and universal life force energy is within all of us. Reiki is a light, hands-on therapeutic touch treatment, which promotes healing of the emotional, physical and mental bodies. It calms the nervous system by harmonizing the energy centers (chakras) in the body. The word chakra translates to ‘wheel of energy,’ and they are part of our aura (energy field). When a person experiences stress, it initially affects their aura.”

How is a Reiki treatment given, and what does it feel like?
“The client lies down on their back, and the practitioner works from the head going down to the face, then to the throat, the heart and the belly. The practitioner’s hands are placed on these energy centers (chakras) for however long is necessary to transfer and balance the energy. It helps to unblock any congestion and stress in the body. Reiki feels very soothing to the recipient, and depending on their receptivity to the energy, it will come in the form of heat. It is very serene and relaxing. It feels like a waterfall of energy.”

How does it work?
“The practitioner becomes attuned to the Reiki energy by a Reiki master. When an attunement takes place, the practitioner becomes a channel of Universal divine healing energy. This channel strengthens the way muscles strengthen when used with intention.”

Who can be treated with Reiki?
“Reiki can be received by babies, children, adults, pets; any living thing on the planet can receive Reiki! You can receive it distantly too.”

Where does Reiki energy come from?
“Reiki is universal divine love. It comes from the universe.”

Why is Reiki important right now?
“As we feed off of each other’s energy, it’s important to keep ourselves very clean and protected from other people’s negativity. What we read, watch and hear becomes part of our thoughts, and Reiki will help transmute dark into light.”

Reiki is very effective in promoting relaxation, which is something we can all benefit from these days! If you haven’t had a Reiki treatment before, this is a great time to give it a try. Stacey is truly gifted in what she does; she can help release any negativity or fear that may be weighing you down, making room in your life for serenity and peace.
