What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is an ancient art, science and skill, that dates back to the ancient Egyptians. Based on the premise that the foot mirrors the body, it uses gentle pressure and manipulation of the feet. Compression on specific spots on the feet activates the natural healing mechanisms of the body and energize and re-balance all organs and parts of the body. Working only on the feet, the therapist is able to work on affected areas of the body without physically touching them. It also provides overall relaxation and energization to aid in overall health. Although different, it uses much of the same philosophyas acupressure and acupuncture.

What is Therapeutic touch?

Therapeutic Touch is a modern application of ancient forms of healing which uses the laying-on of hands. It is used as a natural healing method for relaxation and self-help, relieves pain, stress and anxiety, improves sleep and well-being

In Therapeutic Touch, the practitioner uses his/her hands in the client's energy field to bring that field to balance and harmony. The client remains fully clothed, in a sitting or lying down position.

One of the underlying working assumptions of Therapeutic Touch is that human beings are open energy fields. Our bodies and their energy fields, just like the universe in which we live, have an innate tendency towards order. The intent of the Therapeutic Touch practitioner will therefore be to assist in the restoration this order in the energy field.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energywork using spiritually guided life force energy.

Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.

A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. A session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness.
