Reiki

Is a Japanese healing method which helps with stress reduction and relaxation to promote healing. It was taught by a Buddihist, Mikao Usui in the early mid-1920s. It was brought from Japan to the United States in the 1930s by a Japanese American woman named Hawayo Takata. Reiki is now practiced and taught in every country in the world. Reiki can help to clear emotional or physical blockages and can aide the body to use its natural resources to heal the mind, body and spirit. Reiki can be a hands on or hands off healing.

What to expect at your Reiki Session:
You will be asked to lie down on a comfortable massage table fully clothed. A sheet and blanket will be provided to cover your body for extra comfort. Relaxing background music, along with aromatherapy candles, can be used to enhance the  spa-like environment. A typical Reiki treatment can last up to 90 minutes as the practitioner’s hands are placed in a specific sequence of positions on your head, chest and back. (This is not a sexual touch or an erotic massage.) The hands rest gently in each position for approximately 3-5 minutes.

Reiki sessions are usually quiet, but you may talk and give feedback. You may fall asleep and experience deep relaxation. You may also experience a variety of sensations such as : comfort, heat, cold, tingling, pressure, lightness, heaviness, and occasionally discomfort when your body begins to balance and release stagnant energy, there can be a total absence of any sensations. Your body will release toxins after your treatment so it is very important to DRINK PLENTY OF WATER!! Emotions or past experiences may surface. People may experience benefits from the treatment for days afterwards and may notice changes in the way food, drink and medications affect the body. It is always important to consult your physician if you notice any changes that may need to be made with your medication.

You will be offered water to drink after your session and may share any experiences or feelings that may have surfaced during your treatment.

Chakra Clearing

This type of healing can clear the many layers of trauma, unresolved emotions and past life experiences we carry in our aura, body and energy field. Our chakras are encyclopedias of our life story. There are many different philosophies of chakras. Below is a basic chart outlining some of the different colors associated with each chakra, where they are located and primary functions. The goal of a chakra clearing is to bring the chakras into alignment and balance.

What to expect at your Chakra clearing session:
You will be asked to lie down on a comfortable massage table fully clothed. A sheet and blanket will be provided to cover your body for extra comfort. Relaxing background music, along with aromatherapy candles can be used to enhance the  spa-like environment.

A chakra clearing can last between 45-60 minutes. The practitioner’s hands are placed above the body at each chakra location. The practitioner does not need to touch the body in order for the clearing to happen. Each chakra will be cleared and balanced in approximately 8 minutes. You may fall asleep and experience deep relaxation. Emotions or past experiences may surface.

Offers techniques to help strengthen your immune system, boost vitality and stamina, relieve pain and common complaints such as colds and common headaches, sharpen your memory and mind, and keep yourself healthy and balanced with a 5 minute daily routine.

What to expect in an Energy Medicine session:
Energy medicine techniques are designed for the client to practice on themselves. You will learn how to influence the flow of these energies by tapping, massaging or tracing specific energy points or pathways on your body.

Energy Medicine techniques work well with counseling in that they can address anxiety, anger, panic and grief by holding and placing our hands on certain points on our body. A typical session can last 50 minutes. There are certain techniques that can be used where the practitioner  holds these energy points on the person’s head, legs and arms, to clear and balance energy. Energy Medicine can be done sitting in a chair or lying down on a massage table.

Creative Visualization and Relaxation Techniques

These techniques help to teach you how to breathe and relax. These techniques can be used along with soft music in the background to help with a deeper relaxation. The practitioner can lead you into a visualization through verbal prompts, allowing you to imagine a scene in your mind’s eye. Creative visualization and relaxation techniques can help to lower your blood pressure, decrease stress, and help you to better manage your anger. Length of session 50 minutes.
