I blend the different techniques in a custom style unique to each client, based on their current needs.


Where Did Reiki Originate?

Reiki, as it is practiced in the U.S. today, dates back to the teachings of Mikao Usui in Japan in the early 1920's.  "Reiki" is the combination of two Japanese words, "rei" meaning universal and "ki" meaning life energy. The word represents universal energy. Reiki is growing in popularity due to its ease of use and effectiveness.  Many hospitals, clinics and offices have implemented Reiki as a practice to reduce stress and increase natural healing for employees and patients.

How Can Reiki Help You?

Reiki is used to aid the natural healing within the body. It can be combined with other modalities (techniques) to speed the body's ability to heal. Reiki can be used to treat the mind, body and spirit, making it an ideal modality for anyone looking for a holistic approach. It can be used to treat acute illness, pain, stress and emotional distress. The beauty of Reiki is that there are no negative side effects. 

What To Expect In A Reiki Session

Reiki is energy that moves through the practitioner and out their eyes and hands into the client. Clients stay fully clothed during a session and often covered with a blanket to increase relaxation. Reiki can be practiced with touch or by holding the hands slightly off the body. The practitioner gently holds their hands in positions on the body to increase the energy flow to that area for several minutes and then moves the hands slowly to the next location. Many clients describe the Reiki energy as warm, tingling, sparkly, soothing, relaxing and/or pain relieving.



What is Accunect?

Accunect is a simple and effective holistic therapy based on Ancient Chinese Wisdom that allows the body’s energy systems to be re-synchronized so they can operate as nature intended. It is non-invasive, objective in application and works effectively on humans and animals alike. Accunect can be used as a stand-alone system to treat many chronic and acute health problems by balancing them at the root cause, or can be seamlessly integrated with any healthcare regimen to increase its overall effectiveness. Accunect’s major assets are its simplicity, safety and the speed of results.

Why Accunect?

Accunect offers an intuitive, simple and effective way to address imbalance in the body.  In Chinese medicine, it is believed that "dis" ease is caused in the body by some aspect of the mind, body, spirit or emotions being out of balance.  Accunect offers a health map that addresses the various aspects of "dis" ease at their root, helping the body to create lasting balance and healing.  It is painless, creates peace within the body's natural healing ability and allows the body to do what it was designed to do - heal.

How Can Accunect Help You?

Accunect is great at addressing a wide variety of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual concerns. Accunect can be used for anything from acute concerns to chronic illness and diseases. It can also be used to support groups (i.e. families, businesses, and sports clubs) to relieve stress and help individuals work in harmony and as a team. Athletes may use Accunect to perform better or heal quicker, and students may use Accunect to help learn more effectively or perform well on a test.

What To Expect In An Accunect Session.

During a session, the practitioner uses muscle checking to ask the client's body (subconscious) what is ready to shift and balance. Then, the practitioner taps off the body, in the energy field over the head to tell the mind to listen and create the change and over the heart to tell the body to store the new shift.  The series is repeated with each area that is out of balance and ready to change. The practitioner is looking for what is ready to heal/balance so there is no forcing, just allowing.  Clients are fully clothed during a session and either lie or sit comfortably.  Many times the client feels the shift of energy, other times, it may be more subtle.  After a session, there is an increased sense of peace, balance and overall well-being.

What is Natural Alignment?

By working with the body's natural healing ability, Natural Alignment restores structural balance to the body. Unlike modalities that use force, twisting and cracking, natural alignment simply provides the ideal frequency that the body responds to, and hips, spines, knees, shoulders, necks, sphenoids and more, gently roll into place.  Because, there is no force, the body only moves as far as is best at that time. This holistic approach helps clients heal as they are ready.

How Can Natural Alignment Help You?

Clients often request alignment due to unresolved pain in their joints, muscles and spine.  This modality focuses on reducing the pain and promoting structural alignment. Its an excellent complement to Western medicine for those who have undergone joint surgery, fractures, tears, sprains and spinal surgery.  Many also receive relief from headache pain due to concussions and tension.

What To Expect In An Alignment Session.

During a session, the practitioner places their hands in various positions on the client to promote the bodies natural healing ability. Clients stay fully clothed during a session and often stand during alignment. Many times the client may sway, rock, twist or bend depending on what the body is attempting to align. During the session, the practitioner often will drain pain out of the affected area to bring increased relief and then, restore energy balance to that area of the body. Many times a series of 4-6 consecutive weekly sessions are recommended to retrain the muscles that have held the misalignment over time.
