Modern Physics describes energy fields existing within and around our physical bodies. Energy flows around us and through us nourishing our cells, organs and glands. When there is an imbalance in our energy field, one may be susceptible to or experience dis-ease, manifesting itself as stress, depression, infection, cancer or other physical, emotional or mental discomforts.

Pain management can take on various forms, one of them being management of the energy fields surrounding your physical body. Such practice is known as Reiki. Reiki, which has also been called hands-on healing or energy work has been around from thousands of years. It not only helps to strengthen and restore the body’s own natural ability to heal but is also utilized to support general health and well-being.

During a Reiki session, the patient is fully clothed and may be relaxing on a table, or sitting comfortably in a chair, whichever is most comfortable. There is a gentle laying on of hands on a number of specific areas of the body or if requested over a specific area of discomfort or injury.

With stillness and concentration, the practitioner connects with his/her Life Force Energy which then flows through his/her hands to the patient. The client will receive the amount of energy he needs to bring his body and mind into balance. Sessions usually last one hour.
