  • Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on method that supports every system in the body, releasing tension and enhancing your body’s own ability to heal.
  • Reiki is a Japanese word meaning “universal life force energy”.  It addresses both chronic and acute conditions, gently and powerfully promoting balance among all the body’s systems.
