Virtual Reiki Relaxation Sessions

By Appointment

Patti BoergerHoly Comforter friends and family who've tried it, say it's very relaxing and has helped reduce fear, anxiety and more. Reiki is an ancient Japanese form of energy/spiritual healing that involves the transfer of universal (in this case God's) energy from the practitioner’s palms to their participant. Many hospitals offer it to calm patients, reduce stress, release blocked energy flow in the body and help them heal both mentally and physically. While these sessions are normally done in person, they can be done remotely. The Reiki Master visualizes the person at the designated time and sends the energy to them with the intent of healing and relaxation. Patti Boerger, a Reiki Master practitioner for Holy Comforter's Center for Wellness and Spirituality, offers free 20-minute sessions. All she asks is that you sit or lie in a quiet place, and she will do the rest virtually. Free is a great value considering that an in-person session at a spa can range from $90-$150. Appointments as late as 9 p.m. are available in case you want to lie in bed and perhaps fall asleep during the treatment. Email Patti Boerger to schedule a time. Learn more.
