Reiki is a natural healing technique during which you lie, fully clothed and under a cozy blanket, on a massage table and I lightly lay my hands on your head, face and body to channel energy.
This energy is often perceived as heat or a sensation of general well-being and is gentle and relaxing to the body and mind. Through this process, your body’s own innate wisdom is stimulated to heal the cause of your health problems, promoting a holistic balancing of body, mind and spirit.
After a Reiki session, you may feel a bit 'spacey' or 'dazed'. This should pass after a few moments once you allow yourself to come fully back into your awareness. Many people feel introspective after a session, so allow yourself some time for quiet thoughts. You will be detoxifying the waste that has built up in your system, so ensure that you stay hydrated and get good quality rest. Most people feel an immediate improvement in their level of discomfort, state of mind and energy levels- so enjoy this change!

Emotional Freedom Technique
"As a practicing psychiatrist with over 25 years of clinical experience, I see EFT as the most promising new treatment that I've encountered.." Dr. Eric Leskowitz, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
EFT is a form of counseling intervention that draws on various alternative medicine therapies. This technique works by tapping on specific energy meridians or acupressure points in the body while saying certain statements or affirmations to remove energy blockages and negative thought patterns. This process provides powerful and near immediate results.
The concept of EFT is that emotional and physical pain are due to an energy imbalance within the body. The immediate reaction we feel to an injustice upon us is very real and completely justified, but holding on to those feelings is something we can all do, and those emotions can manifest and become expressed as actual physical symptoms in the body.
The good news is that we can just as easily let go of those harmful feelings utilizing this simple technique. Easy to learn, this tool can be quite powerful and results are instant. I myself was quite skeptical of EFT at first, but after attending group seminars led by Al Rodee, a wonderful practitioner, I found that I was able to do a lot of personal growth and healing through this method alone- and I felt even more empowered because I facilitated the change within myself.
I incorporate EFT into some workshops, and, if you are comfortable, I may ask you if we can use it in your nutritional consultation. This is entirely dependent on your individual case and needs. I find that it can be particularly helpful in dealing with emotional eating, cancer, chronic pain, and cognitive support- but it is useful in all healing.
