Reiki & Forest Bathing

What is Reiki?

Dragonfly Healing is pleased to offer nature-based Reiki sessions for those looking for a deeply relaxing and nurturing, experience. Weather permitting, your session will take place in a comfortable outdoor space in the natural beauty and healing environment of Ravenwood. In the case of inclement weather, indoor space is available.

Reiki is a Japanese energy healing modality. It is a hands-on technique that promotes wellness on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. As an earth-based healing practitioner, I integrate ceremony, song, and drumming or rattling into my sessions. Before your first session you will be briefed on what to expect and will be asked questions so that I know how best to serve you. 

A complete Reiki session is offered to a fully clothed recipient who is lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably supported in a chair. Most commonly, Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner's hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso. 

After your Reiki session, take some time to walk through Ravenwood's beautiful forest paths and enjoy the calming and restorative practice of forest bathing.

Forest Bathing at Ravenwood

Shinrin-yoku is a term that means "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing." It was developed and popualrized in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine. Long before the popularization of Shinrin-yoku, forests have always provided people with life-giving gifts and medicine. Ravenwood inspires, transforms, and nurtures all who visit. Located on 40 private acres bordering the crystal clear waters of the Salmon River, Ravenwood features majestic old-growth forest, grassy meadows, and countless species of edible and culturally significant plants and animals and beautiful mossy paths for you to walk barefoot.

Benefits of forest bathing include:
  • Boosted immune system functioning                                           
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Reduced stress
  • Improved mood
  • Increased ability to focus
  • Accelerated recovery from surgery or illness
  • Increased energy level
  • Improved sleep
