Reiki (pron. “Rey-Key”) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and 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, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Daily stress from living breaks down our energy field, leaving us vulnerable to disease and illness. Reiki is a process that allows the Universal energy to fill the aura of the body to bring it back into balance.
The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words – “REI” means present everywhere or Universal. Another meaning is Spiritual Wisdom or Higher Knowledge. The Rei portion means the spiritual wisdom, which knows how to bring about healing. “KI” means life force energy. Anything that is alive has an energy field with this energy moving through it and around it. This life force energy is in every cell of your body and supports the biological and chemical components to sustain health and well-being.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind & spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results.
Some individuals are more sensitive than others. Some things you may experience are warmth or tingling energies, jumping or twitching when the energy is released, getting so relaxed that you fall asleep, or just feel peaceful and feeling blocks releasing. Everyone’s experience is different.
Hara & Grid Line Repair
This work is performed in conjunction with a Reiki session.
The Hara Line is the line of energy that runs through the core of your body where all of the chakras connect to send and receive the life force energy. It enters into your energetic body through the top of the head into the earth’s core.
From stress, trauma, injury, illness, and intense energy conditions the Hara line can break, bulge, crack, puncture, blowout as well as other dynamics being experienced. If this occurs, the healing work that someone is receiving may not take or hold for long periods. By repairing the Hara line, healing can be facilitated on many levels. Hara & Grid Line Repair is performed as part of a Reiki session and only after an initial relationship has been established.

‘Healing Hands’ is a term used to describe a variety of wellness methods taught to ‘energy’ healers, lay persons and professional massage therapists throughout the modern world.
This modality reaches into ancient history for its foundation. Healers, Shamans, and Medicine people have been offering this form of hands-on, energetic healing for generations. The most common contemporary form of this work is from Japan, known as Reiki.
‘Healing Hands’ uses a different symbol system than Reiki yet draws on the same innate wisdom of the universe to bring about balance for the client. The symbols used in ‘Healing Hands’ have been drawn as Petroglyphs and Pictographs in Native American rock art throughout the Americas. In this class, you learn how to use those symbols and what they stand for in regards to health and wellness.

The word yoga, from the Sanskrit word yuj means to yoke or bind and is often interpreted as “union” or a method of discipline. A male who practices yoga is called a yogi, a female practitioner, a yogini.
The Indian sage Patanjali is believed to have collated the practice of yoga into the Yoga Sutra an estimated 2,000 years ago. The Sutra is a collection of 195 statements that serves as a philosophical guidebook for most of the yoga that is practiced today. It also outlines eight limbs of yoga: the yamas (restraints), niyamas (observances), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), pratyahara (withdrawal of senses), dharana (concentration), dhyani (meditation), and samadhi (absorption). As we explore these eight limbs, we begin by refining our behavior in the outer world, and then we focus inwardly until we reach samadhi (liberation, enlightenment).
Today most people practicing yoga are engaged in the third limb, asana, which is a program of physical postures designed to purify the body and provide the physical strength and stamina required for long periods of meditation.
