Reflexology is a science that works with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all the glands, organs, and parts of the body. In Western Reflexology it is a unique method of using the thumb and fingers on these reflexes, working on the areas of congestion or tension (this feels full or gritty to the therapist, the client; tenderness) to help the body return to a natural state of homeostasis. Comfortable pressure is used to thumb walk over the zones, taking the time to rest on a tender spot and work over the area until the tenderness either becomes less or is relieved.

Essential oils are valued for their ability to bring about a state of peace and calming. Various oils may stimulate, detoxify, and speed healing to tissues. Massage combined with the synergy of pure Therapeutic essential oils will help you balance mind, body and spirit. A massage blend of oil containing nine therapeutic grade essential oils is used to relieve your sore muscles and individual oils are chosen for your mind to clear and your spirit to soar!
This has been known to increase the immune system, relieve back issues, and to create balance and harmony in the body - physically, mentally, and emotionally. Raindrop Technique focuses the healing essence of the essential oils directly to the spinal column where it is believed that viruses and bacteria lie dormant until the immune system weakens. The oils create an environment that is not hospitable to these “foreign” agents in our bodies and causes them to be eliminated naturally.
Raindrop Therapy is also a very effective detoxification and can assist you in eliminating symptoms associated with cold and flu. Raindrop Technique is a very gentle therapy and offers you the opportunity to completely relax while improving your overall wellbeing on all levels.

Integrating the pain of the past with the joy of the present moment.
The healing art of touch therapy is called Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key). Reiki is a method of connecting the universal life force energy with the body's own intrinsic power of healing. It is a gentle hands-on technique that aids the body in releasing tension and stress by creating a deep state of relaxation. It promotes healing of the mind, body, and spirit. This holistic energy work process restores vitality, balance and harmony while assisting the body in clearing toxins and alleviating pain, both chronic and acute.
HEALING WITH CRYSTALS
Crystals are the mineral portion of the earth. They have been used since the dawning of civilization. The Christian Bible refers to 'Crystals' over 200 times. The energy contained in Crystals is 'universal energy'. Each crystal has its' own vibration or personality. Used during Reiki or IET, placed on and around the client can help to re-energize and balance the client's energy field.
