Because Reiki is a form of energy, it can be sent across distance, as well as in person. In this prolonged time of COVID-19, Rivka is only offering distance reiki via a ZOOM appointment.
What is Reiki?
Rivka saw the powerful healing qualities of Reiki during the 1980s, when working with AIDS patients. The soothing nature of Reiki energy helped the patients better tolerate the effects of the drug protocols, and gave them comfort, at a time when many would not even touch a Person with AIDS.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is NOT massage. It is administered by “laying on hands” just above the fully-clothed body, and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us; and is what causes us to be alive. Reiki is also Not a religion, but does speak to our spirit and draws on the healing wisdom of the Universe.
