Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. It is practiced by transmitting healing energy through the hands of the practitioner to the client. The healing energy is guided spiritually but not based on belief, faith or suggestion. It is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, but if it is high, we are more capable of healing and being happy and healthy.
Nutrition is the building blocks to our health. Learning what supports your body and lifestyle are essential and foundational to a healthy and happy life. I work with clients on a variety of health concerns, including weight loss, weight gain, cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, allergies and more. Sessions are individually tailored to meet your needs. Goals are set based on your current lifestyle and time constraints. Clients play an active roll in determining how their goals are achieved. I believe in meeting clients where they are at in a nurturing and welcoming environment.
