About Allison Slavinskas

Who I Am and What I Do

Hi, I'm Allison. Welcome to A Helping Hand Reiki! I found Reiki as a part of my wellness journey. I was looking for an alternate form of self-care for my mental health, had heard about Reiki through the grapevine, and decided to book an appointment. I was fascinated by what I was experiencing. I could feel the energy coming through the practitioner's hands and I was feeling renewed and happier (a goal I had set for the session). At the end of the session I even told the practitioner that she helped me get my groove back! That's all it took. Something deep inside of me was calling me to learn more about Reiki, and that's just what I did. I studied under Lourdes Gray, RMT, at the John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing in Jaffrey, NH, and am a sixth generation Reiki Master in the Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage. 
For me, wellness is finding the homeostasis between the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels of the body. Reiki is the life force energy that is already within us. When delivered by a practitioner, the body integrates this fresh energy and begins healing itself. Reiki can be used to address physical injuries, mental health, emotional trauma, substance abuse, addiction, holistic births, latching while breastfeeding, surgeries, and much more. It is important to remember that Reiki is a complementary modality to medical care and is not intended to replace medical care from a licensed healthcare professional. Reiki practitioners do not diagnose conditions, provide medical treatment, or prescribe medication. 
Wellness is a journey, and it's not always an easy one. You don't have to walk alone, from time to time we could all use a helping hand. When you're ready, you can take mine.
