REIKI - 45 min treatment: $80
Reiki can be defined as a non-physical
healing energy made up of life force energy that is guided by the Higher
Intelligence, or spiritually guided life force energy. This si a functional
definition as it closely parallels the experience of those who practice Reiki
in the Reiki energy seems to have an intelligence of its own flowing where it
is needed in the client and creating the healing conditions necessary for the
individuals needs. It cannot be guided by the mind, therefore it is not limited
by the experience of ability of the practitioner. Neither can it be misused as
it always created a healing effect. (It must be kept in mind that Reiki is not
the same as simple life force energy as life force energy by itself can be
influenced by the mind and because of this, can create benefit as well as cause
problems including ill health).
This non-invasive, completely benign healing
technique is becoming more and more popular. As western medicine continues to
explore alternative methods of healing, Reiki is destines to play an important
role as an accepted and valued healing practice.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy is
based on the theory that along with the respiratory and cardiac rhythms in the
body, there is also a cranio-sacral rhythm.
The cranio-sacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid
that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of the skull, face
and mouth, which make up the cranium, down to the sacrum.
The Cranio-Sacral Therapy
practitioner uses a light touch to test for restrictions in the cranio-sacral
system. This is done by monitoring the
rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid as it flows through the system. The positive effects of cranio-sacral Therapy
rely to a large extent on the body’s natural self-corrective abilities. The therapist’s light touch simply assists
the hydraulic forces inherent in the cranio-sacral system to improve the body’s
internal environment and strengthen its ability to heal itself.
