Energy-Based Healing Modalities are gentle, noninvasive treatments that work to restore the natural flow and balance of the body’s energy system. In times of stress, injury or illness this energy system can become congested, blocked or unbalanced. Specially trained practitioners in the use of Healing Touch or Reiki, use their hands to clear, energize and rebalance the subtle energy field of a person. The 15-30 minute treatment session, which may include light touch to the body often, creates a deep sense of relaxation, sleep, and/or a reduction in pain and nausea symptoms. This deep sense of relaxation allows the body to be in the best condition for healing.
