Reiki is a beautiful, subtle, yet powerful energy that has a history dating back to over two thousand years and is thought to have originated in Tibet. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words — Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." Kevin is a Reiki Master initiated and given the attunement in Karuna, Usui and Jin- Kei-Do-Reiki. Dr. Oz’s wife, Lisa Oz, knows firsthand the benefits of Reiki and its great potential as a catalyst for medical breakthroughs. As a Reiki master, she wholly embraces energy healing, pointing out in a recent interview that “the next wave of medical advances will be when we come to recognize the body as an energetic system.”
Kevin's quest to help people lead a more fulfilling life free of pain led him to learn a technique called Bowen Therapy. Bowen Therapy helps to release muscle tension by strumming the muscles and meridians like a Guitar string. Bowen and CranioSacral Therapy are both performed with your clothes on
Developed by Fritz Smith, MD in the early 1970s, Zero Balancing is a powerful body-mind therapy that uses skilled touch to address the relationship between energy and structures of the body. Following a protocol that typically lasts 30 to 45 minutes, the practitioner uses finger pressure and gentle traction on areas of tension in the bones, joints and soft tissue to create fulcrums, or points of balance, around which the body can relax and reorganize. Zero Balancing focuses primarily on key joints of our skeleton that conduct and balance forces of gravity, posture and movement. By addressing the deepest and densest tissues of the body along with soft tissue and energy fields, Zero Balancing helps to clear blocks in the body’s energy flow, amplify vitality and contribute to better postural alignment. A Zero Balancing session leaves you with a wonderful feeling of inner harmony and organization.
