Reiki Master/Teacher

Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation, which also promotes physical and emotional healing. Reiki is administered by "laying on hands" on and around the body and chakra system, and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
