Reiki and Forest Bathing


What is Reiki?

I'm pleased to offer nature-based reiki sessions for those looking for a deeply relaxing and nurturing experience.

Reiki is a Japanese energy healing modality: A hands-on technique that promotes wellness on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. As an earth-based healing practitioner, I integrate ceremony, song, and drumming or rattling into my sessions. Before your reiki session begins, 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 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. Each reiki healing treatment is unique and deeply relaxing. Everyone will have a different experience during treatment. Some will feel heat, tingling, or maybe nothing at all. Regardless of the strength or subtlety of your experience, the energy is working.

Reiki is more effective when done regularly. Your body intuitively knows how much to release at any given time.  The more reiki you receive, the faster toxins and imbalances can move out of your body. I suggest that you begin with committing to a minimum of 4 reiki sessions to experience maximum benefit.  

Benefits of reiki Include:

  • Alleviation of pain
  • Feeling rejuvenated and energized
  • Promotion of deep emotional release in a safe environment
  • Acceleration of physical healing
  •  Relaxation, peace of mind
  • Loosening of blocked energy and promotion of well-being
  • Relief from anxiety and depression

Weather permitting, your reiki session will take place in a comfortable outdoor space in the natural and healing environment of Ravenwood. In the case of inclement weather, we will complete your treatment indoors. After your reiki session, give yourself 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 popularized 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

TESTIMONIALS

I've journeyed with Corinna and many shapes and forms over the years, through Vision Quest, sweat, Medicine walks, reiki, and spending time at Ravenwood. She holds a deep reverence for life, the land and its beings and shares this in many ways; through story telling, nature based rituals and simply by the way she walks in the world. Her keen listening and ability to see my stories and struggles within a broader realm such as the medicine wheel has helped me a lot over the years. I would recommend working with Corinna, especially up at Ravenwood where the land and it's being support such beautiful work. -Isabelle Laplante, Nurse

Corinna‚Äôs gifts are palpable and her compassion and wisdom have the ability to create safe and sacred spaces for others to reconnect with their inner knowing, to cultivate their wholeness and to tend to anything that is not at peace in their spirit. Corinna invites you to lean in and trust you are safe to cross the threshold of healing. She invites you to trust in loving kindness, connection and compassion - to trust your inner knowing. She guides with love, dignity, wisdom, connection and respect for all our relations.  Her ability to hold space for others is nothing short of remarkable.

I have grown and transformed under her mentorship. I have healed and learned to tend to deep grief. She has guided me through a vision quest, an apprenticeship in the work that reconnects, and the wild woman retreat. All of these experiences have guided my unfolding transformation and allowed me to trust in myself and my gifts so that I can share my best self with all of our relations. - Catherine Howe, Youth Worker


Remember when you were little and you lay on the grass staring up at the sky? Suspended in the wonder of imagination or perhaps in the calm of stillness? The wind kissing your cheeks, the sun's rays tickling your toes, and the birds making music only for you - like a conductor leading nature's orchestra, tuning into your frequency? Complete equanimity. Now only if you had a time machine to get back there. I know where one is and who can drive it! Follow these instructions: 1) Go to Ravenwood, 2) Find Corinna, 3) Get in the Delorean (Doc and Marty may have disguised it as a massage table in a meadow). Afterwards, you'll get back to your future, calmer, energized, and utterly restored. 

- Renae, Police Officer, Educator, but most importantly - Mom.

The reiki yesterday was amazing! Kate seemed so different after her session! Her Grandmother commented as well. More energy...She wanted to help work outside - moved dirt and stained chairs! And was full of life - happy and laughing. Really amazing!
