Try Reiki

Reiki is a simple and natural healing method using the universal life force energy that exists in all living things. If our life force energy is low, one is more prone to fatigue, stress, and illness. When the natural flow of this energy is increased during a session, the chakras and energy channels are cleared and brought into alignment, increasing the body’s self healing abilities and allowing one to feel a sense of deep relaxation and well being.

A Reiki session will:
1.Balance and strengthen the energy body, promoting its ability for self healing
2. Bring about deep relaxation
3. Clear energy blockages
4. Promote the bodies natural energy flow, increasing vitality and feelings of harmony and joy
5. Help relieve pain, physical and mental discomfort, anxiety and stress

  • A few years ago I was diagnosed with acute tendonitis in my wrist. After multiple cortisone injections, I was told I would need surgery in order to have the use of my wrist again. I decided to look into Chinese Medicine. To my relief, Stephanie was able to alleviate the pain in my wrist fairly quickly and with continued treatments, my wrist was good as new. Although I’ve seen Stephanie for many other aches and pains over the years, my wrist isn’t one of them… I continue to have a pain-free wrist without surgery!

  • I have been going to Laureen for a massage since I was pregnant with my first child 8 years ago. She is wonderful. Very accommodating, and does a great job at listening to your body and making the massage relaxing and restorative. Stephanie has treated my children for asthma 4 years, my daughter started when she was 5 and my son started when he was 4. The results have been amazing. My daughter no longer needs treatments because her lungs have healed and have become strong, I believe as a result of acupuncture.
