What is Reiki

Dr. Usui discovered Reiki during a mystical experience on Mt. Kurama, north of Kyoto, Japan. In 1922, he  opened a practice just outside of Tokyo after working with energy for a few years.

Reiki is a technique of using energy for healing, creating relaxation and releasing stress. Reiki (ray-key) means Rei = soul or spirit and Ki = life force energy.

Reiki is light-touch energy based method. Reiki helps to re-align a normal flow of energy throughout your  system and enhance your body's ability to heal itself.

What to Expect

During a Reiki session, you lie fully clothed on a massage table. There are a series of hand positions, either placed above or lightly touching the body. There is no manipulation of the  skin or massage involved.  Reiki is safe and works on energy.  It is not in-tended to replace any other medical/holistic practices, it complements them. With Reiki there are no prescriptions and no diagnoses are made.

What is Ayurveda

Ayurveda is known as the “knowledge of life.” It involves a harmonious interaction between the action, intellect, behavior, body, emotions and the environment in which we live.  All of these elements are equally important. Balance is health in Ayurvedic philosophy.

What to Expect

You will be asked a series of questions regarding your health, lifestyle, diet, environment, employment  and hobbies. Once your information is gathered the appropriate treatment is recommended.

Abhyanga Massage

Depending on your constitution this  massage is either a vigorous or gentle application. Special herbs and oils are heated and massaged into your body. This helps the toxins to move towards the gastro-intestinal track and eventually be eliminated from the body.



Helps alleviate headaches, disease of the nose, sinusitis, mental disorders, and skin complaints. The client lies down on their back and oils are administered in one nostril while the other nostril is closed and vice versa. It is accompanied by a head, shoulder and neck massage.


Shirodhara is a very relaxing treatment that helps with headaches, insomnia, nervous disorders, anxiety, hypertension and mental fatigue. Special herbs and oils that complement your constitution are heated in a copper vessel that will be placed six inches above your head. The oil will stream over your forehead for about 25 minutes. This is followed by a gentle massage of your face, head and shoulders.

Pada Abhyanga

Ayurveda foot care treatment applies herbal oil  to all the marma points of the foot.  By stimulating the foot marma points, connections are made at the subtlest level of the nervous system for release of emotional stress.

Heat Therapy

Increases the blood circulation throughout the body which releases the impurities from the tissue.
