Reiki pronounced (Ray Key) is an ancient laying-on of hands, a healing technique.
It uses the life force energy to heal & balance the whole body.
This practice has been around since the beginning of mankind.
Energy flows from our Creator...the Cosmic Universal Oneness, I call God.
There have been many different names using the same principle tapping into
God's loving healing power.This gift is Free and Available to everyone everywhere.

This simple, non-invasive healing system works with the Higher Self of the receiver
to promote health and well being of the entire physical, emotional and psychic body.
Therefore it is truly a system of attaining and promoting wholeness of
Mind, Body, & Spirit.

The name Reiki originate in Tibet and was rediscovered in the nineteenth
century by a Japanese Monk named Dr. MIKAO USUI.
With the  coming together of East meets West we are encouraged that the same
oneness, (God)  connects all living creation.

Reiki healing has opened a doorway to awaken a healing art w/ sicentific
evidence that it works to reduce stress and promote the natural response of the body to heal itself.
Sometimes healing is just being aware of what your body needs at a given time.
This takes quiet..listening and willingness to act in your own best interest.

The Reiki giver is used as a channel for the Universal Life Energy. The laying-on
of hands directs the healing energy into the body of the receiver.
A Reiki Master can be a guide in your pathway to better health, peace & enlightenment. 
You can learn to use Reiki healing on yourself..this is a gift from God . All that is needed
is a willingness and belief that if you seek you will find..if you ask it will be given.


Originally known as reflex therapy, reflexology is a holistic healing method which involves pressure and massage of the reflex points found on the feet and hands. 
These reflexes are found on the soles of the feet and the palms of the hands, they act as "mirrors" reflecting the organs and whole body. (Some reflexologist use the ears also.)
Reflexology teaches that a vital energy, or life force, circulates between the organs of the body, permeating every living cell and tissue.
Energy blocks in the human body are reflected on the hands and feet in one or more of   these zones.

Reflexology is an old science dating back to India & China over 5,000 years ago.
This knowledge however appeared to be lost or forgotten. Another conjecture is that
it began in Egypt. Evidence of this stems from an Egyptian tomb drawing dating back to 2330 BC. This drawing depicts four people; one being treated with foot massage and a second person with hand massage.
Still others credit reflexology to the Incas, a people who belonged to a very ancient Peruvian civilization, possibly reaching back to 12,000 BC. It is speculated that they passed down their knowledge of zone therapy to the North American Indians who are still using this form of treatment today.

Energy blocks in the zones can have many causes:  stress, bad diet, a lifestyle that is no longer beneficial, a broken marriage, or loss.. just to name a few. The way to successfully
dissipate the problem is to find the cause. Reflexology is a holistic therapy, and therefore techniques must be coupled with counselling by the reflexologist.

Reflexology treatment centers on massage and pressure to the reflex areas in the feet and hands. Therefore it is important to learn the anatomy of 
those parts of the physical body. Since the position of the transverse zones on the feet and hands has a direct relationship with the skeletal structure, it is essential to study this structure in some detail so as to be able to locate the reflex ares accurately.
Reflexology is both a science and an art.
