Reiki (pronounced ray-key) means “universal life energy” in Japanese, and it originated in Japan with a man by the name of Mikao Usui in the late 1800s. Reiki is a gentle modality that promotes the body’s natural ability to heal. The client remains fully clothed, and may recline or sit comfortably while the Reiki practitioner works either off the body in the aura or with a light, non-intrusive touch. Clearing and balancing are the main goals – to achieve harmony in all levels of our being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. On the physical level, Reiki enhances immunity and goes along with all regular medical care. Reiki can speed post-surgical, post-trauma healing, and is an excellent preparation before surgery as well. Learning Reiki for self-treatment is encouraged, empowering the individual for his or her own self-care and self-comfort. Reiki sessions and training are available at Heartwood with four competent, compassionate and caring practitioners:

I’ve been going to Louise for about 3 months now and she is great! I have a very stressful and physically demanding job. In order to help deal with stres and fatigue, I turn to Louise. She’s very professional, nice and probably the best massage therapist I’ve had anywhere. She’s especially good at Swedish massage. I walk into her studio feeling like a trainwreck and walk out feeling like a million bucks! — Peiter J.
