Where Did Reiki Originate?

In the 20th century, Mikao Usui founded the practice of Reiki in Japan. “Reiki” is the combination of two Japanese words, “rei” meaning universal and “ki” meaning life energy. The word represents universal energy. Reiki is growing in popularity due to its ease of use and effectiveness.  Many hospitals, clinics and offices have implemented Reiki as a practice to reduce stress and increase natural healing for employees and patients.

What To Expect In A Reiki Session.

Reiki is energy that moves through the practitioner and out their eyes and hands into the client. Clients stay fully clothed during a session and often covered with a blanket to increase relaxation. Reiki can be practiced with touch or by holding the hands slightly off the body. The practitioner gently holds their hands in positions on the body to increase the energy flow to that area for several minutes and then moves the hands slowly to the next location. Many clients describe the Reiki energy as warm, tingling, sparkly, soothing, relaxing and/or pain relieving.

 What is Natural Alignment Healing?

What is Natural Alignment?

By working with the body’s natural healing ability, Natural Alignment restores structural balance to the body. Unlike modalities that use force, twisting and cracking, natural alignment simply provides the ideal frequency that the body responds to, and hips, spines, knees, shoulders, necks, sphenoids and more, gently roll into place.  Because, there is no force, the body only moves as far as is best at that time. This holistic approach helps clients heal as they are ready.

What is an Energetic Cord Cutting Session?

How Can An Energetic Cord Cutting Session Help You?

When a person has any type of interaction with another person, an energetic cord can form between you. Energy cords connect us to family members, lovers, friends, exes, and coworkers. When the relationship is intimate the energetic cords that connect you are stronger. Maybe you’re hung up on someone, can’t get them out of your head no matter how hard you try, or long to see again – then you probably have an energetic cord keeping you tied to them. This attachment can feel like an immense weight – and you don’t even know where it’s coming from!
