What is Reiki? And, why for Actors?
Reiki is Universal Life Force Energy. It is a high vibration, intelligent energy that purifies, balances, harmonizes and cleanses. It works on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. It creates energy flow throughout the body which can clear emotional blocks to prepare the actor's body and mind to approach a role. Reiki is extremely beneficial to actors while working on a role to prevent emotional and physical pieces of the character from lingering within the actor's psyche.
Along with Reiki, Laura incorporates guided meditation, visualization, the breath and bodywork to coax the body into a deeply relaxed and open state allowing the body to heal. Having dealt with anxiety and addiction herself, she specializes in working with clients helping them overcome mental and physical addictions and releasing the trauma behind the addiction from the body and mind. She also uses acting exercises personalized for each client in order to address, expose and free physical and emotional hindrances. The gentle healing of Reiki combined with deep emotional exercises produces transformative results for actors, enabling them to endure the long hours and grueling schedule of becoming and being a professional actor. Through this work the actor's energy will be freed up for the important task of creation.
