What is it?
Strengthens the bodies’ healing forces. This subtle energy therapy balances the endocrine system and increases the free flow of energy throughout the body. Energy centers strongly affected lie on top of endocrine glands and nerve plexuses making this service particularly helpful in balancing emotions and hormones.

Early and Throughout!
Reiki can be considered both a beginning to a treatment plan as well as a stand alone healing event in itself. Our practitioners can usually do a complete service at the 45 min. timeframe.
The movement of energy through your body, with all of its movement and nourishment can be completed within each service.
The connectivity to your deeper auric space allows a practitioner to tap into deeply causative events and themes that can be the springboards for much more practice, therapies, and inner work. In this way, Reiki is a great service to get near the beginning of a wellness program to help us set your course as well as a being a regular component of any maintenance program or plan you are working on.
Reiki & Cancer
The Magic Of Three Days
We have found that the transition of tension between mind to breath and breath to body each take about three days. So a blow to your self esteem can result in the onset of a cold three days later. A fight can result in chest pains from tightness three days later etc....
What this means for Reiki is that we can time a treatment to happen ASAP after we have a very emotional day, to catch the movement of emotional energy before it's wave of drama passes into the physical sphere.
But interestingly as well, we can plan Reiki treatments for three days after any chemo therapy to greatly reduce the continued movement of side effects that it causes in the body, breath and mind.
We have many experiences with clients who have set up their plans at this exact three day after chemo time and they all swear by how well it reduces the negative side effects from their chemo.
There is a large body of growing evidence that Reiki does indeed provide a myriad of health benefits. However, there seems to be two main controversies worth mentioning.
The first is that Reiki is an energy treatment. Science currently holds little value for many alternative healing modalities that offer energy as a form of healing. They can't yet measure it. But let us keep in mind that science condemned the man who built the first microscope and the first telescope. Science frequently must be proved wrong and often by the advent of more sophisticated technologies. Is Reiki waiting to be vindicated by a new technology?
Secondly, a spiritual controversy comes from a religious direction. Catholics have a great fear that that the energy flowing into the practitioner can not be verified. Reiki energy is universal energy, but is it of God or of something else? Something nefarious? There is no doubt that Reiki was a mainstay of Catholic retreat centers for many years but it was banned in full around 2010. What exactly is the source of Reiki energy?
If these controversies intrigue you, by all means dig into them. Give Reiki a try to see what you feel as well. We know you will enjoy the treatment even if you don't solve these great mysteries.
