Reiki … the gentle touch

pussy willowsReiki is a subtle and profound holistic technique of gentle touch that can facilitate optimum relaxation and stress reduction, to help balance and revitalize mind, body and spirit. The practitioner’s hands are placed on or slightly above the body in a heart-centred and intentional way to energize, and help restore harmony and balance in the human energy system. You may experience a number of sensations such as heat, tingling, pulsating, or nothing at all—every experience is unique.

Reiki does not cure any specific problem, but works on the entire self to help provide an overall sense of relaxation. This complementary integrative energy therapy may help the body promote well-being on all levels—mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual—and, as with all our modalities, can be used in conjunction with traditional therapies.
