Light Touch Energic/Pranic Touch Therapies (Reiki and Craniosacral)

Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing art over 3000 years old. “Rei” means universal and “Ki” means Chi - life force. So Reiki means “Universal Life Force Energy.” A session of Reiki/Crainosacral involves the Reiki practitioner placing the hands on the (chakras)the seven major energy centers in the body. By balancing these energy centers the body can begin to heal on a physical and emotional level. A Reiki session is done fully clothed on a massage table for 45 to 60 minutes. The crainosacral is incorporated with the Reiki session. The practitioner mainly works with the cranial and sacral bones and the little wind in-between, “Spirit”. The cranial work is also a light touch and holds for three to five minutes in each position. Crainosacral is excellent for head traumas, freeing the movement of cerebral spinal fluid. It is useful in cases of depression, anxiety, insomnia, TMJ, anger, headaches, fatigue, and it helps restore a sense of stability and calm.
