Reiki is a gentle hands-on therapy that supports stress-reduction and relaxation, and it also promotes healing.  Reiki was developed in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usu in the early 1900’s.

Healing Touch

Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing, heart-centered energy therapy that was developed in Colorado by Janet Mentgen, RN. It is classified by the National Institutes of Health as a biofield therapy and nursing intervention, and is endorsed by the American Holistic Nursing Association.

Healing Touch is a collection of standardized, non-invasive techniques that clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields. Healing Touch assists in creating a coherent and balanced energy field, supporting one’s inherent ability to heal.
