A spiritual practice for the mind, body and soul

Energy Healing is a holistic practice that works on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels to promote balance and wellbeing. Reiki is an ancient healing practice that originated in Japan and is a form of energy healing that works by channeling universal life force energy through the practitioner’s hands to the recipient. 

The benefits of energy healing are numerous. On a physical level, Energy Healing or Reiki can help to reduce pain, speed up healing, and improve overall health. It can also help to reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep, and increase energy levels. 

On an emotional level, it can help to reduce negative emotions, increase feelings of peace and relaxation, and promote emotional balance. 

On a spiritual level, Energy Healing or Reiki can help to open up the heart and mind to higher levels of consciousness and can help to bring clarity and insight.

Reiki and Energy Healing restores inner balance allowing your body to naturally protect and heal. You want to be well hydrated before your session and wear comfortable clothing.

During Reiki.  Woman lying peacefully in a spa receiving reiki


During your session, the practitioner may be hovering their hands over you or touching you lightly. If you prefer not to be touched, you may let the practitioner know. Most people will doze off or be in a light sleep state as the process is so relaxing. You will be lying on a massage table fully clothed with your shoes off. At the end of the session the practitioner will let you know what areas were blocked and how best to emotionally and physically further support the work that was done.

Frequently asked questions

Naturally balance your body’s energy

Who can benefit from reiki or energy healing?

All of us! Pregnant women, infants, pets and the elderly. We are all exposed to negative energy on an emotional, physical and spiritual level. Reiki works to release that negative energy allowing us to rise to our potential.

How does reiki or energy healing work?

We all have an energy flowing within us. The Reiki practitioner, with light tough or no touch at all, is a conduit for the reiki energy, sending it, like a current, to the client.  This creates a circuit of flowing energy that will jump start the client’s innate healing power.

Do I feel anything during the session?

Most people will feel the energy of the practitioner much like a gentle vibration as it relaxes the body and opens the channels of awareness and clarity.

Can reiki do harm?

No. Energy is channeled from our higher power for the greatest good of the person receiving it. It comes from a higher plane of existence than the physical world and is guided to where healing needs to take place. For this reason, it is safe and effective.

What if I fall sleep during the session?

Sleeping is a positive indication the practitioner’s energy is being received with the nerves/muscles being relaxed.

How many sessions will I need?

Sessions are one hour. The practitioner will suggest the frequency and number of sessions. Typically several sessions spaced one to two weeks apart are suggested and thereafter once a month maintenance.

What is a Reiki Reading?

Our practitioner is an Intuitive Biological Reiki Practitioner who is able to detect stress blockages in the body and thereby able to report which areas of the body may need additional support.

What is Distant Reiki?

Our minds and body are far more powerful than most people believe. With Distant Reiki, the practitioner is channeling the energy to the client from a distance by setting the mental intention. The recipient experiences a relaxed feeling and often a feeling of vibration surrounding the body.

Our mission is to help you find your inner greatness so you can Live Life Empowered!
