I will reply to your email as soon as I can after I return home.

Reiki

portal esotericoI will be offering Reiki treatments at the 360 Wellness Clinic beginning in mid-May. Reiki is hands-on, non-manipulative energy work done fully clothed on a massage table. It can be extremely relaxing or extremely therapeutic, depending on the intention you bring to the session and what your body/mind needs at the time. The Reiki practitioner channels “rei ki” (a Japanese term often translated as “Universal Energy”) from his or her hands into the client, and the client’s body uses the energy in the way that it needs it at the time. As such, the Reiki practitioner is not a healer, but a conduit for healing energy.

Reiki has helped me physically and emotionally over the past couple of years, and I am excited to be able to help others in this way.
