Energy Work


Reiki is a healing art, and is deeply meditative and healing for the body, mind, and spirit. Reiki is received fully clothed through a series of gentle yet powerful hand placements. Tension, stress, and pain melt away under the warm and nurturing touch of the therapist. Chakras and major systems of the body are given concentrated life-force energy, enhancing the body’s inherent power to heal.

Integrated Energy Therapy®

Your therapist combines "angelic" energy with specific hand positions and light acupressure in various locations on the physical body. This treatment is ideal to clear accumulated energy blocks. Through releasing these blocks, you will begin to feel more self-empowered, spiritually connected, and able to move through life more easily. This treatment is done fully clothed.

The first thing my therapist asked me was if I felt any strong connection to a higher being (specifically, angels). I had to be honest, so I told her I didn’t believe in that sort of thing. She assured me that wouldn’t matter. For this treatment, believing in angels isn’t necessary in order to feel its effectiveness. Instead, it’s about trusting your therapist to allow the healing work to happen regardless of what you believe.

I lay down on the table, fully clothed, and the therapist got to work. The gentle pressure of her hands was so soothing, I found myself drifting in and out of sleep. She told me that her initial touch was to get the energy flowing in that area, then after putting light pressure on the specific area, she pulled her hand slowly away from my body, flicking her wrist as if tossing something away. She said that energy can feel thick or hard, like a wall, and she’ll work on the same area, pulling and flicking until the energy felt cleared and light.

As I lay there for the 50 minute session, feeling more and more relaxed, I realized that my expectations were all about what the treatment would feel like. I didn’t think at all about what I’d learn. Staying up near my head, my therapist told me she could feel energy blocks in my throat and near my shoulders. I’d been feeling lately like I was biting my tongue, keeping my opinion to myself, which could explain blockages in my throat. The shoulders, she told me, represent what we think or are taught that we should do and who we think we should be.

I felt myself slowly opening up to a new way of thinking, as I wondered when I might physically feel any different. She told me that unlike a massage, where you might immediately feel looser and more relaxed, the effects of IET are more gradual. And they did dawn on me over the next few days. I realized I felt more confident about voicing my opinions, about saying what needed to be said. I felt more productive at work and as a result, less stressed.

I would definitely try the IET treatment again. Continuous treatments are said to deepen the results, which I imagine would only improve my productivity, boost my confidence, and open my mind to new ways of thinking.

Craniosacral Therapy

The therapist’s deep, sensitive touch locates blocks in the cerebral spinal fluid that surround the central nervous system. Then, through the gentle manipulation of bones and membranes, restrictions are eased and all systems flow more freely. This treatment is good for conditions, including migraines, headaches, TMJ, arthritis, memory loss, ear infections and depression.
