Rituals for Keeping Calm

Meet Rae Whatley

With more than 20 years of experience, Rae Whatley is one of our vette d Reiki therapists on our expansive list of providers. Her practice is beneficial for both those preparing for surgery and those recovering. Rae also uses Reiki to help her clients mitigate cancer treatment side effects such as pain, nausea, headaches, feelings of depression and more.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique, originally designed for the improvement of the body, mind and spirit. The energy of Reiki is wonderful for improving your mood, your digestion, and sleep. At Unite for HER, we offer both in person Reiki sessions as well as Distance Reiki, which is performed virtually and has been found just as effective and calming.

Rae’s Calming Ritual

Rae encourages you to try this: Place one hand on your forehead, and one hand supporting the base of your skull. Sit like this for a few minutes and breathe slowly. This ritual can lower your blood pressure, bring your heart rate down, and soon you will begin to feel more centered.
