REFLEXOLOGY

REIKI - (Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy). This energy healing treatment is performed with the client fully clothed. This is not a massage, hypnosis or tool for diagnosing illness. The practitioner will simply place her hands on or above the clients head, shoulders, back, chest, stomach and limbs. The session attempts to balance the client’s energy centers while alleviating pain, promoting stress relief, restful sleep, overall healing and relaxation. All which promote an improved immune system. Reiki is also especially appreciated in hospice care due to its ability to alleviate pain and anxiety for both patient and family members. This treatment is widely used also in hospitals such as Sloan Kettering Hospital in New York City and Cleveland Clinic and now Shadyside, Allegheny General and Sewickley Valley.

Many ancient cultures embraced the belief that life energy flows through the body, deeply affecting our entire being. Current research strongly suggests that energy does extend throughout and beyond the physical body, and that disruptions or imbalances in its flow correlate to physical, mental and emotional illnesses. The healing art of Reiki (pronounced "RAY-key") addresses these imbalances to support your good health and well-being.

Though the Reiki techniques appear simple, the effects can feel profound. Most people experience deep relaxation. You may also feel tingling, pulsing, a feeling of warmth and comfort, or you may fall asleep.

Results can be subtle. Some recipients say they feel little during the session, but afterwards enjoy a sense of calm and well-being, and a deep, restful sleep. It is possible you could experience powerful sensations or emotions during or after the session.

Studies of Reiki show significant reduction of pain, including cancer pain, following treatments. One study cited improvements in the immune and nervous system function and increased mobility in patients with conditions such as multiple sclerosis, lupus and fibromyalgia. At Portsmouth Regional Hospital in New Hampshire, surgical patients decreased their use of pain medications, stayed for shorter periods and reported increased satisfaction with pre- and postsurgical Reiki sessions.



REFLEXOLOGY - This is Acupressure of the Feet and/or Hands. This treatment is based on the principle that there are over 7000 nerve endings on the soles of our feet. These nerve endings reflect specific areas elsewhere in the body such as organs, glands, tissue and structure and can simulate overall wellness.

Reflexology has been shown to improve circulation. Circulation carries oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and carries wastes away. Improved circulation can result in decreased muscle tension and soreness, and reduced swelling from injuries or illness. Immune function, skin tone and the ability to concentrate also improved with circulation is increased.

Your body is reflected in your feet. Years of experience by reflexologists and recipients alike suggest that when pressure is applied to the feet, predictable positive changes occur in specific areas elsewhere in the body.

Reflexology approaches the body as a whole with integrated systems. This means, for example, that working the sinus points alone does not necessarily relieve a sinus headache. Your reflexologiest stimulates all the reflex points, supporting overall well-being and enabling your body to concentrate healing energy wherever they are needed.

When dealing with Cancer, Reflexology may be an option when Massage Therapy is not recommended. In Switzerland, nurses working with terminally ill cancer patients routinely use reflexology to decrease pain and make patients more comfortable. In Great Britain, reflexology is part of the National Health Service. A number of employee health programs in Japan and Denmark now include Reflexology as well as Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
