How Does Reiki work?
The Universal life force of Reiki has an intelligence of its own and goes to where it is needed in the individual being healed. It comes from an unlimited source. It is not controlled or directed by the practitioner's mind, abilities, or state of health. The client is the one who accepts and controls the healing. If at a deeper level, they have a desire to be healed, and if the timing is correct for them, a complete healing can occur. Reiki is very simply applied through the process of touch by trained and certified Usui Reiki Practitioner. When the practitioner applies the hands to begin the treatment, the Universal life force energy begins to flow through them, out their hands in an amplified and focused manner. The Reiki energy does what it has to do for the person. The body draws the energy it needs - reawakening its ability to heal itself. It has the unique ability to be self balancing within the body.
The first treatment introduces the Reiki energy to the body.
The second treatment creates a deeper level of healing.
The third treatment anchors in the healing energy.
Reflexology is the natural, noninvasive healing art that is based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet that correspond to every organ, gland and body part. Through application of pressure to these reflexes, Reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and promotes the natural functioning and healing of the body. Reflexology therapists do not diagnose or prescribe. Reflexology helps to balance the physical, mental and emotional aspects of your whole body. If an organ or gland is over or under active, Reflexology can help it to return it to a normal level.
How Reflexology Helps you?
The body has the ability to heal itself. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, it is in a state of "imbalance" and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. When one part of the body is not functioning well, the effect is felt throughout the entire system. Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body's natural balance and encourage healing.
Reflexology Therapists are trained to detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet and by working on theses points, they can release blockages and restore the natural flow of energy to the whole body. This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself at its own pace.
What Can Reflexology Do for You?
Reflexology helps with
- Menstrual discomfort
- Intestinal distress
- Difficulty sleeping
- Neck, shoulder, hip, knee and back pain
- Digestive issues
- Menstrual irregularity
- Sciatic problems
- Sore, aching, tired feet
- Stress, anxiety, tension
- staying healthy
These seem to be conditions that receive frequent favorable results. The common mistake a client will make is assuming that all will be healed in one session. It is important for the client to realize that everyone has an individual healing response and they should not be disheartened if they do not see results in the first session. Many chronic conditions are deeply seated in the body and it will take more than one session to bring to the surface. Many clients allow their doctors weeks or months to try and assist them with their condition but will write off reflexology as being ineffective if significant results aren’t seen after one session. Realistic goals should be set with the reflexologist and the client. At the very least, you will leave feeling relaxed and your body will be in a better position to heal itself. Try it, but just a little warning. It can be addictive.
Reiki- Reflexology combo
Treat yourself to the ultimate healing combination! This treatment combines a specially adapted full body Reiki session followed by Reflexology which is tailored to the client's individual needs. You may choose a 90 or 120 minutes session for this special experience - a little longer if you are a first time client so that we can discuss your medical history and other details.
Starting at your head and working towards your feet, the Reiki treatment induces deep relaxation, balances the chakra energies and relieves stress, pain and tension and promotes feeling of well-being. Once your feet have received the Reiki energy, a Reflexology treatment follows. With the client already deeply relaxed and all the body's pathways cleared by Reiki, the Reflexology is able to work on exceptionally deep and subtle levels. The treatment ends with a clearing of any negative or stale energies and final balancing of the chakras. Time is allowed for the client to drink a glass of water and to ensure they are fully awake and grounded before making their way into the outside world.
Based on ancient wisdom, these extremely pleasant and powerfully balancing energies helps us to restore our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health and brings us closer to experiencing the beautiful beings we truly are. Sessions are conducted with the client fully clothed.
Thai foot reflexology is a delightful treatment for the lower legs and feet that originated in Thailand about 2000 years ago. It is the marriage of India and Asia - incorporating elements of Japanese shiatsu, Chinese reflexology, Chinese tuina and Ayurvedic yoga. Using stretching, massage, thumb-walking and the use of a specific-tooled wooden stick to stimulate the reflex points. Thai foot reflexology seeks to restore balance to the body/mind through the reflexes of the feet and lower legs that are linked to the body's 72,000 energy meridians (sens).
Thai foot reflexology is an enjoyable holistic treatment that restores balance to the mind and body at the same time that it stimulates the internal organs. Reported benefits include:
* improved circulation in legs and hands
*improved lymphatic drainage
*increased removal of waste deposits and toxins
*elevated functioning of the immune system
*reduced stiffness: improved flexibility
*accelerated physical healing
*relief from stress
*mental clarity and stimulation

Integrated Craniosacral Myofascia Release Therapy
This therapy is based on the craniosacral system of the body, which mainly involves the bones and connective tissues of the cranium and the spine, the spinal cord, and the fluid within. Gentle therapeutic manipulation and support allows the body to free nerves that exit at the base of the skull and along the length of the spine between the vertebrae, thereby relieving areas of tension along the spine, releasing tension due to trauma or injury to the head or tailbone, and enabling the proper flow of cerebral spinal fluid.
Because the craniosacral system houses the brain and spinal cord of the central nervous system, and further, because all parts of the body are supplied by nerve roots which exit from the spine, this gentle but deep therapy affects virtually all parts of the body, from proper organ function, to fascia (connective tissue) releases.
All that we can do with the entire body, we can do with the feet. Working the reflexes on the feet, allowing the craniaosacral system to release allowing the cerebral spinal fluids to flow freely. When the cerebral fluids are flowing properly, all our nerves are nourished allowing full function, easing pain and nourishing our bodies.
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
By tapping on specific acupressure points, traumas, pain, painful memories, bad habits, fears, anger, anxiety, painful emotions can be a thing of the past. Very easy to learn. Nice to work on yourself, between appointments but always, important to work with a therapist because it is hard to find the core issue to the problem without trained help.
Ionic Foot bath
A gentle detoxifying water foot bath system that pulls unwanted toxins out of the body by a bio energetic ionic exchange. Positive, and negative ions surge through the body and impurities in the body are attracted to either the negative, or positive ions. They are pulled through the lymphatic, the blood stream, and get extracted from the body by osmotic pressure at the soles of the feet.
The colour and consistency of the water in which your feet have been soaking, shows the result of pollutants being removed from your body’s systems.
Bioenergetics is important because the amount of energy a person has will contribute to the body’s capacity to eliminate, digest, sleep, move, and feel vitally alive and well.
Daily our bodies are assaulted by a constant bombardment of pollutants from the environment.
REASONS TO DETOX
- Help your body get rid of toxins
- Remove heavy metals and chemicals from your body
- Decrease recovery time from illness or injury
- Boost your bodies own natural defenses
- Enhance nutrient absorption
- Increase oxygen absorption
- Help to relieve pain and tension
- Help to relieve chronic fatigue
- Increase energy
- Improve sleep
Chi Machines, gently sway your body in a fish-like motion while you lie down. As this motion is on the axis of the spine, it results in a full body massage (which also involves internal systems) and provides several health benefits, including:
Back & Neck Pain Relief
Chi machines apply gentle flexing motion all the way up the spine, affecting not just the legs, but also hips, back, and neck. Stiff joints and muscles are deeply loosened, resulting in relieved tension.
Stimulation of Circulation During Use
Just as with exercise, the motion from our Chi Machines stimulates circulation during use, and works in a similar way to Lymphatic Drainage Massage therapy.
Chi Machines maintain joint mobility, without reducing energy levels or impacting joints, which is of enormous benefit to the elderly or those for whom traditional exercise is a problem.
Other Holistic Benefits
The undulating motion has a holistic impact on the health. As nerves and muscles relax, so does the mind. The body's systems, including internal organs, all undergo deep, restoring massage. A great many users say they can feel the strengthening of the Chi and a general sense of well-being. Afterwards, many experience a tingling, rushing sensation and a deep relaxation—not unlike a "natural" or "runner's high".
