Reiki Energy Healing Session  ~  1-1.5 Hours      

Sliding Scale Fee: $90 - $50

Reiki is a form of energy healing that is over 2,500 years old.  It is an ancient technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.  The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words- "Rei" which means "Universal" and is also a general term for "Spirit" or "Spiritually Guided," and "Ki" which means "Life Force Energy."  So Reiki is "Universal Life Force Energy" or "Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy."  

A practitioner administers Reiki by a simple laying on of hands and channeling this universal life force energy, allowing the energy to flow where it is needed to receive healing.  When our flow of life force energy is disrupted, weakened or blocked, health problems often occur.  Reiki energy healing provides a means to restore balance to our energy centers (chakras), to create conditions needed for the body's healing system to function optimally.  Reiki works by channeling Divine healing energy and opening the energy channels in the body.  This allows the body to deal properly and naturally with stress and build-up of emotional, mental and physical toxins.  Reiki recharges and relaxes the body, accelerating the abiilty to heal.  When we are relaxed and free of stress and tension, we are able to restore our natural ability to facilitate healing for ourselves.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use and benefit from.  Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being.  It identifies physical problems and opens the mind to the root cause of dis-ease and pain.  It is useful in healing trauma from addictions and abuse, and accelerates the process of forgiving ourselves and others.  

Reiki is also a useful and wonderful healing tool for our pets and companion animals!  Reiki can be particularly helpful for companion animals who suffer from anxiety, a variety of behavioral issues, and animals that are experiencing physical pain or recovering from a recent injury or surgery. 

Reiki has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and ailment, and also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve countless symptoms and medication side effects, as well as promote healing and recovery.  See 'Reiki Healing' above for additional information about the potential health benefits of Reiki and how Reiki healing energy works!

Shamanic Healing & Soul Retrieval ~  1-1.5 Hours

Sliding Scale Fee: $90 - $50

Shamanism is an ancient form of spiritual healing that is used to restore balance and wholeness by addressing the root cause of a person's problem or illness.  A shamanic practitioner uses a drum or a rattle to shift into altered states of consciousness so they may access different realities in the spirit world in order to bring back healing, information and power.  Shamanic healing is an effective form of healing to address any physical, emotional or mental health issues.  It is excellent for restoring self-confidence, self-worth, self-love, and a person's individual sense of power in the world.  Shamanic healing is also effective for removing unwanted energies, soul retrieval, retrieving a spiritual ally and for ancestral healing.  It is a powerful form of healing that may be used in combination with any other healing modality.

Additional information about Soul Retrieval-  Everyone experiences what shamans would call 'soul loss.'  Soul loss happens in a person's life typically as a result of some traumatic incident (an accident, any type of abuse or assault, the loss of a loved one, illness, being in a natural disaster, surgery, addiction, experiences of embarassment or ridicule, etc.).  Any event that causes a person shock can cause soul loss.  During these traumatic incidents a piece of our soul may leave in order to protect us from the immense pain that we would experience if we were fully present in our bodies at that time. In the moment of trauma soul loss isn't seen as something bad that happens to us, it is actually seen as something that is good because it is protective.  It is how we survive pain.  It can be similar to the protective effects of what psychologists would call dissociation during a traumatic event.  For example, if you were going to be in a head on collision would you really want to be fully conscious and 100% in your body at the moment of the collision?  

Soul loss in the moment of trauma is not a bad thing, however, if soul parts do not return on their own after the traumatic moment has passed this is when they can begin to cause problems (or symptoms) for people.  Symptoms of soul loss can include some of the following:  not feeling fully in your body, fully alive, or fully engaged in your life; chronic depression; fear, PTSD; immune system problems or chronic illness; chronic misfortune; addictions; grief that does not resolve; lacking memory of large parts of your life; low self-esteem; lack of self-worth, self-love and self-confidence; etc.  In a soul retrieval session, it is the role of the shamanic practitioner to track down where the soul essence has fled to and return it to the person.
