Energy Healing ~ Mental & Emotional Wellness
REIKI As my teacher Darcy Skye puts it, "Reiki is a gentle hands-on-healing modality centered around channeling universal life force energy in the form of love." It can be practiced without touching the body, and even from a distance. When stress and emotions throw you off-kilter, Reiki treatments can help bring balance back to the subtle energy ('prana') layer of your body, thereby helping you feel calmer, lighter, or more grounded. Available with or without Aromatherapy. See also www.reikikatie.weebly.com to learn more about Reiki.
CHAKRALIGNMENT The cakram ("chakras") are energy centers in the body; there are seven major chakras that live along the spine, spinning like wheels to take in our sensory experiences and to churn out our mental, emotional, and physical responses. Each chakra is associated with a different endocrine gland, and a distinct aspect of our psyche (the major chakras are sometimes paralleled with Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs), among other correlations. When a chakra is off-balance, it can make us feel mentally disturbed or physically unwell, and can affect the other chakras as well as the people around us. Using methods such as meditation, visualization, breathing, chanting, & movement, we can access our energy centers and help restore our chakra system to its natural, balanced state. Available with or without Aromatherapy. Small Group sessions also available.
MEDITATION & BREATHING Making time to practice concentration and focus enhances our overall mental and emotional performance in daily life (i.e., work, chores/errands, conscious conversation), and full breathing supports our body's respiratory system as well as our ability to relax. Learn how to do both in a single session, or focus on one or the other. Optional: Aromatherapy. Small Group sessions also available. Beginners welcome.
