A Reiki Treatment Session – 30 minute – ($45) /45 minutes ($60)  / 60 minutes ($80)

Reiki is a form of therapy that uses simple hands-on, no-touch, and visualization techniques, with the goal of improving the flow of life energy in a person. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) means “universal life energy” in Japanese, and Reiki practitioners are trained to detect and alleviate problems of energy flow on the physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Reiki touch therapy is used in much the same way to achieve similar effects that traditional massage therapy is used — to relieve stress and pain, and to improve the symptoms of various health conditions.

Practitioners have reported success in helping patients with acute and chronic illnesses, from asthma and arthritis to trauma and recovery from surgery. Reiki is a gentle and safe technique, and has been used successfully in some hospitals. It has been found to be very calming and reassuring for those suffering from severe or fatal conditions.

What happens in a Reiki treatment session?

Lights are dimmed, and soft music is playing in the background.   You will start by lying fully clothed on your back, with support or in a modified position as needed for your comfort.  If you are able, halfway through the session you can turn over to lay on your stomach.

Reiki practice can help in a wide range of of situations because it does not treat the symptom or condition directly; rather, Reiki practice helps restore balance so you feel better and your system can shift gears from coping to profound self-healing.

Can be incorporated into a 30-minute Reflexology treatment or booked as a 30-minute, 45-minute, or 60-minute treatment by itself.

 

Reflexology  30 minutes ($45)/ 45 minutes ($60) / 60 minutes ($80)

The many reflex points on the feet, which mirror our body’s organs are stimulated with a specific type of pressure and technique.  This encourages our systems to release toxins and tensions, so achieving a harmonious balance.

What should you expect during a reflexology session?

This session begins with a health history discussed together, and will focus on areas of emphasis that are related to the discussion.   The amount of pressure that is comfortable for you will be established.

The lights in the room will be dimmed and soft music will be playing in the background to help you relax.

The session will begin once you are on the treatment table, fully clothed, with the exception of your socks and shoes removed.

The therapist will begin by relaxing your right foot, reflex the entire foot and focus on areas of emphasis per their discussion.  The therapist will then follow through with the same process on the left foot.

The session ends by holding the person’s ankles and pulling to provide a small stretch.

After the Reflexology treatment, the therapist will discuss the experience with the client and address any questions or thoughts they may have regarding their treatment.

 

Why Reflexology?

Reflexology is a therapeutic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet and hands. This controlled pressure alleviates the source of the discomfort in the absence of any particular malady or abnormality. Reflexology may be as effective for promoting good health and for preventing illness as it may be for relieving symptoms of stress, injury, and illness.

The pressure points on the feet are connected directly through the nervous system and affect the bodily organs and glands. The reflexologist manipulates the pressure points according to specific techniques of reflexology therapy. By means of this touching therapy, any part of the body that is the source of pain, illness, or potential debility can be strengthened through the application of pressure of the respective foot or hand location.

Reflexology promotes healing by stimulating the nerves in the body and encouraging the flow of blood. In the process, reflexology not only quells the sensation of pain, but relieves the source of the pain as well.

Reflexologists claim success in the treatment of a variety of conditions and injuries such as fibromyalgia.  People with this disease are encouraged to undergo reflexology treatment to alleviate any of a number of chronic bowel syndromes associated with the condition. Frequent brief sessions of reflexology therapy are also recommended as an alternative to drug therapy for controlling muscle pain associated with fibromyalgia and for relieving difficult breathing caused by tightness in the muscles of the patient’s neck and throat.

Reflexology applied properly can alleviate allergy symptoms, as well as stress, back pain, and chronic fatigue. The techniques of reflexology can be performed conveniently on the hand in situations where a session on the feet is not practical, although the effectiveness of limited hand therapy is less pronounced than with foot pressure therapy.
