Each session is a deeply relaxing experience which reduces stress + anxiety and improves vital functions, such as breathing, digesting and sleeping. A Reiki session can provide space to become aware of what’s going on in your mind and body. Being more present with this awareness allows for the inner wisdom to come through. You can expect to rest in a restorative position while the practitioner follows a sequence of gentle hand placements on the body to encourage energy flow to promote health + vitality. In doing so, energetic blocks, which may lead to dis-ease + discomfort are reduced + optimal health may be restored.
Sound baths are a powerful tool to effortlessly guide you into a deep state of relaxation. Because our bodies are made up of 70% water, the frequencies and vibrations from singing bowls, drums and chimes, have the power to profoundly affect the body to bring it back to harmony, balance, as well as expanding consciousness and self-discovery. A series of hand-sequences are gently applied to the body, beginning at the feet, allowing the body to settle into the present moment. Once grounded, a surround sound of instruments will be played for you to sink into. The Sound Bath is followed with supportive, therapeutic touch to the neck, shoulders, head and feet.
