Reiki is a Japanese energy healing modality that is both gentle and deeply relaxing. The therapist offers Reiki with a light, non-invasive touch on or slightly off the body. Reiki energy helps clear and re-balance energy centers or Chakras in the body, to promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
Reiki works very well in combination with Massage Therapy or on its own.
Lisa has Advanced Mindfulness Meditation training from the University of Toronto. Mindfulness is the practice of bringing ones awareness to the present moment and noticing, without judgement, any thoughts or feelings that arise. Mindfulness Meditation can help decrease symptoms of pain, stress, depression and improve immune function.
Lisa can incorporate Mindfulness Meditation techniques into her Massage Therapy sessions or as Self Care for her clients.
