Reiki Therapy

Reiki is the term given to a non-invasive healing technique similar to that of 'laying on of hands' based upon the premise that a life force flows within all of us. This treatment is built upon the belief that a universal life force nourishes and supports all of the organs and cells within the body. A Reiki practitioner's hands are used to channel energy from the universe through to the body to assist the healing process using pathways called chakras and meridians. It is also believed that any negative thoughts or feelings bind to our life source causing physical and emotional disturbances. Reiki begins the healing process by charging and replacing this negative energy with positive energy to strengthen and heal the life force in a powerful way.

The overall objective of Reiki is to treat the whole person . . . the body, emotions, mind, and spirit. The reported benefits relieve pain, reduce stress, boost the immune system, speed up the healing process, reduce the side effects of medication, assist in the healing of bad habits and addictions, increase spiritual awareness offering a deep sense of relaxation, peace and harmony.

*Since Reiki is a more spiritually based treatment, it is highly recommended that time is taken to carefully select a Reiki practitioner to ensure a harmonious and fruitful outcome. One hour treatments range between $75 - $90.
