What is Reiki?

Enjoy the peace and restoration that Reiki provides!


Reiki is an energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to your body, improving the flow and balance of your energy to support healing.

Because energy is not bound by time and space, Reiki can also be sent virtually! 

Mikao Usui developed Reiki in the early 1900s, deriving the term from the Japanese words rei, meaning “universal,” and ki, which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Now, Reiki is used all over the world, including in hospitals and hospices, to complement other forms of health treatments.

Can Reiki replace traditional treatments?

No. Reiki treatment should not be used as a substitute for the consultation of a physician or a psychotherapist.

How does Reiki work?

Reiki practitioners act as a conduit between you and the source of the universal life force energy. The energy flows through the practitioner’s hands to you. If a session is being conducted virtually, the practitioner is following the same format as in-person but sets the intention of you receiving the energy wherever you are. 

What does Reiki feel like?

You may feel sensations like heat, tingling, coolness or pulsing where the Reiki practitioner has placed their hands or hovers their hands over your body. Some people may notice stomach noises or small muscle twitches. Others may not feel anything at all.

Most people feel very relaxed and peaceful during a Reiki treatment, and many fall asleep during the process.


What is Intuitive Reiki?

Intuitive Reiki is a practice that combines the energy healing techniques of Reiki with the intuitive abilities of the practitioner. It involves tapping into one's intuition and using it to guide the Reiki session. During an Intuitive Reiki session, messages from your own spirit team, angels, guides or loved ones may be received by Carole and shared with you as they are received. The session is more interactive than a traditional Reiki session.

Carole finds that your active involvement in this type of session, either by sharing your response to any information received or answering intuitively guided questions, supports her receiving additional information to help propel your own healing journey. Each Intuitive Reiki session is unique and allows for us to address any specific issues or imbalances in a holistic and intuitive way. 

At the start of the session, Carole will invite, with your permission, your angels, guides and loved ones to join the session. Carole cannot guarantee that messages from anyone in particular will come through during an Intuitive Reiki session, but she will share any messages received and ask clarifying questions to help you get the most out of the session. 

If you are looking for a more focused mediumship session, an appointment can be scheduled for this. 

When scheduling a Reiki appointment with Carole, you can let her know if you prefer traditional Reiki or Intuitive Reiki for your appointment. 

In person appointments are conducted at the Black Bird House in Wethersfield, CT.




"My reiki session with Carole was amazing! It was the first time I've had a dowsing consultation and seeing it, as it confirmed what I already knew was a magical experience. I left the reiki session feeling more relaxed, in tune and ready for the week to come. Thanks so much Carole! You're truly gifted and a kind soul."   ~Giovanny
