tālem Salon and Wellness Collective: The Healing Energy of Reiki

By  0 Comments

Reiki, pronounced ray-key, is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can benefit from. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and disorder. It works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Introducing Reiki to our tālem Salon guests has been a dream come true for our Reiki Master, Kristi Holthaus. Kristi has been practicing and working with guests for several years. Through her practice, she has proven that Reiki can help bring balance where there is chaos. “As a hairstylist of more than 15 years, I have been so fortunate to have gained the trust and confidence of my guests. If during their hair service, I feel the need for healing that Reiki can provide, I am thankful for the opportunity to offer an experience for our guests on another level and platform,” Kristi said. 

Although Reiki is new to most everyone in our community right now, it has been around for decades. Healing emotional and physical ailments in our culture is a demanding challenge in our world today. Finding balance in our everyday lives is a big ask. Just as your body needs a massage, your mind and soul need Reiki. “I have found, over the years, that if we can start to calm our minds and our hearts, then our bodies tend to follow suit. Energy healing is just as important as any physical healing, if not more so,” Kristi said, when asked about the importance of Reiki. 

What does a Reiki session look like? “It’s an experience like no other. You are on a massage table but it’s more of a tranquil, no-contact, spiritual connection that is gifted to you through the Reiki Master. Surprisingly, you feel renewed and calm after, and I would even say refreshed!” said Betsy Reidell. 

As an owner of tālem Salon, Kristi is grateful for the opportunity to introduce timeless Eastern practices to guests. “There is something healing and magical about the balance that occurs when Eastern practices meet Western medicine,” said Kristi.
