Balance - heal - restore

April 18th

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be and feel radiantly alive.  If one's "life force energy" is low, then they are more likely to get sick or feel stress.  However,  if it's high, they are more capable of being happy and experiencing a heightened capacity for health and overall wellness.

Benefits of Reiki Include...
~ Promotes Harmony & Balance

~ Creates deep relaxation and helps the body release stress and tension

~ Dissolves energy blocks and promotes natural balance between mind, body and spirit

~  Assists the body in cleansing itself from toxins and supports the immune system

~ Clears the mind and improves focus by allowing you to feel more grounded & centered

~ Improves sleep quality
