Reiki is an energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to your body, improving the flow and balance of your energy to support healing. Mikao Usui developed reiki in the early 1900s, deriving the term from the Japanese words rei, meaning “universal,” and ki, which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Now, reiki is used all over the world, including in hospitals and hospices, to complement other forms of health treatments. Reiki promotes relaxation, stress reduction and symptom relief to improve overall health and well-being. It can:

  • Bring on a meditative state

  • Foster tissue and bone healing after injury or surgery

  • Stimulate your body’s immune system

  • Promote natural self-healing

  • Relieve pain and tension

  • Support the well-being of people receiving traditional medical treatments

(such as: chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and kidney dialysis)

  • Peace

  • Relaxation

  • Security

  • Wellness

KUNDALINI YOGA INSTRUCTOR

Kundalini Yoga is a dynamic, powerful tool to harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body. This technology precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purifiy the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul. It is not a religion. When we apply the technology of Kundalini Yoga to our bodies and minds, it has the effect of uplifting the spirit. It is for everyone. It is universal and nondenominational. It helps to cope with the daily challenges and stresses of holding jobs, raising families, and managing businesses. It is a path for everyone who wants the skills to cope successfully with the challenges of our times.
