What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energetic approach dating back to the beginning of the 20th century, which aims to reconnect universal energy with each individual’s own life force. More concretely, a “standard” Reiki session involves applying the hands to various parts of the recipient’s body, starting with the head and moving down to the feet. Know that during the treatment is it possible to have the hands on the person, or hold them above the person at a distance of 7 to 8 centimeters. Sessions are led by our practitioner and social worker, Nathalie Lefebvre.

Reiki can be used as a punctual relaxation tool, on an occasional basis to alleviate a physical or psycho-emotional disorder, or as an accompaniment to certain illnesses. The practitioner accompanies the person suffering from a pathology, who may already be under medical care.


What are the benefits of a Reiki session?

Reiki helps to relieve the body and mind, bring a feeling of gentleness, relax, encourage the self-healing mechanism and, as a result, restore a natural, calm, regular and lasting sleep, improved blood circulation, less physical pain and less stress.

  • How do I feel after a Reiki session?

    Reiki energy can create sensations of heat, cold, electric currents, a light breeze, inner energy movements, slight muscle tremors, etc. These sensations are quite normal during a Reiki session.
  • Why do Reiki?

    Reiki helps to restore vital energy and strengthen the immune system. It helps to heal a wide range of conditions including migraines, body tension, back pain, exhaustion, fear, anxiety and depression.
  • Who can practice Reiki?

    In Canada, the profession of Reiki practitioner is not regulated by law. There are many Reiki training schools, but there is no state-recognized diploma.

Graduated from Social Work at McGill University,  Nathalie holds 30 years of experience in our healthcare system, including over 20 years in adult mental health.  She is a member of the Quebec Order of Social Workers and Couple and Family Therapists.

Being also certified in trauma intervention as well as a few therapeutic approaches, she favors a solution-focused approach which highlights the strengths and tools people already have, but may not realize they have, to move through various life challenges. Seeing the capacity for people to rebound from difficult situations is ever inspiring.

In a society aimed at performance and consumption, social isolation is more present than ever, despite our many communication tools. Treating people with humanity and respect is her utmost priority, whatever the situation. Nathalie sees an adult clientele going through difficult situations such as losses/bereavement, symptoms of anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties, stress management and the capacity to adapt to changes. She supports people experiencing an acute period in their lives, so they may re-establish a balance and sense of control over their lives. Nathalie can also provide many community resources when needed.

To favor a better balance, she engages in activities with her  dogs and other animal companions, practices meditation and gratitude, as well as enjoys walks in the forest.
