Emmy Heinz-Marcelynas is a Doula teaching birthing classes at Renaissance Chiropractic Center Wednesday evenings, she also uses Reiki to help expectant mothers through their pregnancy.
Following is a desciption of Reiki from her website @ http://bigsisterbirth.com/reiki.aspx
Reiki can help an anxious mom prepare her body and mind for labor and birth. The first 15-60 minutes of a session is devoted to finding powerful thoughts and words a mom wants to bring to her birthplace- peace, energy, confidence, health, wisdom, acceptance, and strength are typical "power words" moms want to focus on. We also talk about the things a mom wants to release herself from before and during birth- fear, worry, control, etc. Moms usually have a sense of calm and confidence after a pregnancy Reiki session. During birth, Reiki can be used to create a warm and comforting environment, as well as bring a sense of power and confidence to a laboring mom. You never know how Reiki will work on a mom's physical being, but most moms describe a sense of tingly energy that flows through the body, circling the belly, and surrounding even the hardest of contractions with a feeling of primal satisfaction. It's amazing stuff!!!
