This treatment is a natural way of enhancing our own health, healing and well being by using the Universal Life Force Energy, which flows through and around ALL living things. Reiki works by gently flowing through the body to help release blocked energy, decrease pain, and as well can help restore order energetically in an areas within the body in which there may not be. The technique works on many levels to help find healing and balance for your mind, body, and soul.

Reflexology:
Reflexology is based on the principal that there are specific zones or reflex points on the feet which directly correspond to every body system and major organ in the body, and is closely related to the theories of shiatsu, and acupuncture.
The therapist will apply a variety of specific therapeutic pressure techniques – mostly gentle in nature, by using their thumbs, fingers & palms to affect the corresponding areas of the body.
Benefits of this treatment include a great sense of relaxation and stress reduction, improved circulation, and a revitalizing affect on the body which can enhance and balance our organ system functions, and in turn can help increase our over all immune system function as well. People of all ages and health conditions can benefit from this particular technique.
