My approach to massage is to create a nurturing environment with complete relaxation while assisting with release of muscle tension and fascia unwinding.

Reiki and energy work can be specific or general.  Reiki facilitates a quiet journey for utilizing energy to assist with one's own process or with a specific health issue. Reiki energy goes where it is needed in the body.  The client does no work other than to set an intention, relax and absorb energy.  Reiki can be used for relaxation or during recuperation from an illness or injury.  It is a hands-on (or off) modality where symbols are used to intensify the amount of energy one receives. Clearing unwanted energies using other energy modalities can also be requested during a Reiki session.  Reiki is offered at a sliding scale making it available to whoever really needs it.
