Reiki as a Complementary Therapy

Reiki provides a holistic and complementary way of serving a person's health needs by supporting them physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. From her experience as an Occupational Therapist, Anne enriches her healing practice by assisting clients to bridge the gap between traditional medicine and energy healing in order to achieve holistic results that benefit body, mind and spirit.  Reiki is a form of energy healing. Reiki practitioners intuitively channel Reiki energy to restore balance and harmony within the body.  Following the Five Principles of Reki ( The Gokai) will facilitates a shift in consciousness during the healing process. clients will gain greater awareness of themselves, improved mental clarity, emotional stability in relationships and develop a sense of gratitude, optimism and spiritual connection to the world and the Universe.

​Over 90% of today’s illnesses are the result of exposure to prolonged stress or suppressed trauma held within the body. Reiki serves as a powerful detoxification tool to release imbalances often caused by limiting core beliefs and emotional conflicts regardless of when they occurred. Life’s daily stresses can easily imbalance our energy, causing energy stagnation and diminishing the flow of life force energy through and around the body. True health according to Asian medical teachings requires harmony within these subtle bodies of energy in addition to the physical body.  Deep relaxation Inhibits the release of stress hormones.  Physical symptoms from trauma and prolonged stress clear naturally as the subtle flow of life force energy to affected areas is restored allowing your core vibrational frequency and vitality rise. As your energetic health improves, you discover that you are no longer at the mercy of your emotions and can engage in conscious living from your heart.  


​Intuitive Counseling    

Educating clients in supporting their own well-being through positive energy practices is an important aspect of Anne’s healing practice. She is adept at translating seemingly complex wisdom teachings and energy healing principles into practical application for daily life.  In this way Anne empowers clients to discover and strengthen the beautiful
essence that lies within and to face life’s lessons with gratitude as an opportunity to create a more beautiful “garden of well-being” within.  

​Energy healing offers an experience of peace and tranquility as the body achieves balance and homeostasis. For those seeking further exploration on their spiritual journey, Anne offers pineal gland activation to open this master intuitive center of the brain. Located at the center of our brains and related to our perception of light and circadian rhythms, many consider the pineal gland to be the “Seat of the Soul”, hence making it a pertinent part of your emotional and spiritual well-being which will enhance your physical health.
