In 1996 I spent half a year traveling in India. It was during this trip that I had the opportunity to extensively study Reiki. There are three levels of Reiki initiation and I was fortunate to receive all three. The type of Reiki initiation that I received and practice is called Usui Reiki.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Incorporating Reiki into my Acupuncture treatments allows the client to fully relax and receive the benefits of Acupuncture on a profound and deep level.
