As modern women, stress is more often than not a constant in our day-to-day. The path to building an empire is paved with too much to do and too little time. And while we are never not running from meetings to conferences to fitness classes to dinner, we’re also still constantly searching for that little something to help us feel more centered. Which is pretty much why we’re obsessed with reiki.
Reiki is a centuries-old Japanese healing technique that balances your body and channels healing energy. In Eastern medicine, qi is the energy life force that flows through all of us. And in reiki, the practitioner uses touch to transfer qi energy to the patient. It relieves stress, induces deep relaxation, and helps the body self-heal imbalances — and it’s one of the most powerful forms of healing I’ve ever experienced.
If you’re looking for a little healing session in the City of Angels, here are the top places to get a reiki treatment in Los Angeles.
With locations in Weho, Beverly Hills, and Calabasas, VIE HEALING aims to “balance and bring harmony to the mind, body, and spirit through personalized health routines that fit into your everyday life.” In addition to reiki treatments, they also offer acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, auricular acupuncture, and nutrition services.
In Miracle Mile, a team of experienced practitioners of various eastern and western healing arts resides. One of the things that we love about this location is that they place an emphasis on the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In addition to reiki, you’ll also find ear cupping, hypnotherapy, Gua Sha, and cupping.
From mindfulness meditation, to sound baths, to workshops, Den Meditation offers a slew of treatments from reiki to Shamanic healing to sound therapy, as well as guided meditation classes and events every day of the week. With one of the largest menus of healing offerings in the city, this is the perfect home for people looking to try a few different offerings.
Nestled in Highland Park, this healing center blends aromatherapy, guided relaxation, reiki, crystal healing, meditation, and sound healing to get you into a deeply relaxed state. Namaste promises to help balance the chakras, reduce stress, and help heal trauma in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. It’s one of my favorite places in the city to unwind and connect to the universal energy flow.
This female-founded sanctuary in Santa Monica is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Founded by two women, one a reiki master, the other a craniosacral therapy bodywork practitioner, Cocoon is pretty much a one-stop-shop for all things wellness. In addition to treatments, they also host daily classes and an array of events with well-heeled healers, to help you relax, transform, and nourish yourself from within.
