During your visit, a short interview is required to discuss all relevant health information. This is required to provide a safe and effective treatment. Also, assessments maybe performed to evaluate injuries and to prepare an effective treatment plan. It is also imperative to note that all information provided and discussed is strictly confidential.

The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese kanji for universal life-force energy. Reiki is a Japanese holistic, light-touch, energy-based modality. Working as a support mechanism to the body, Reiki re-establishes a normal energy flow of ki (life force energy) throughout the system, which in turn can enhance and accelerate the body’s innate healing ability. Through a series of hand positions on the body, the Reiki practitioner allows for the flow of energy through their body. The client’s body then draws off the amount of energy that is required. The simplicity of a Reiki session may raise some skepticism; however, after experiencing it, many clients keep coming back for more of those relaxing feelings. It should be noted that while receiving a Reiki treatment you are fully clothed and there is no manipulation of muscles or tissue as in Massage Therapy. You will be lying on a table in a comfortable position throughout the treatment. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me.
