Holistic Nutrition

Holistic nutrition looks at the body as a "whole". We look for the root issues that could be allowing the body to become unbalanced. We take into consideration factors like the amount stress, the sleep patterns, as well as lifestyle choices that can all lead to these imbalances. We work with whole foods and natural supplements to realign the Mind, Body, and Spirit. By incorporating subtle changes in the foods we eat, the exercise we do, and the ways to decrease stress, we can begin to live a more balanced life.

Light Therapy

Light energy is not only essential to life it provides powerful support to the body’s natural healing process required for optimal function and assists in the production of cell repair & regeneration.
A light therapy session turns on the (parasympathetic) rest, relax and restore mode of the nervous system. Which in turn aids in boosting your immunity. A healthier immune system helps us fight diseases, viruses, infections and toxins.
During a light therapy session, light energy (coloured light and Infrared light), that is programmed at various wavelengths, moves beneath the skin’s surface, opening up the lymphatic system and increasing your circulation. This is a pain free treatment.
This light is naturally absorbed by your cells to assist in the production of cellular energy – this is the energy required for cell repair and regeneration, improved circulation (blood flow) and for bringing oxygen and nutrients to injured tissues to stimulate and activate the healing process!
Light Therapy has been proven to ease, and in some cases eliminate, anxiety, depression, SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), PTSD, sports related injuries, bone injuries, arthritic inflammation, autoimmune disorders and so much more!
Make Light Therapy part of your regular wellbeing routine or book a series of sessions to resolve a specific ailment.

Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique that is used to treat sickness, stress, and allow pure relaxation for the client. It also promotes healing for mind, body and soul.

Rei- Higher power.
Ki-Life force energy.
(Also known as spiritually guided life force energy.)

Reiki can be felt by”lying hands on one’s body” starting at the head and working down towards the feet. This idea is that an unseen” life force energy”flows through us and is what causes us to feel healthy and alive. If one’s “life force energy” feels low we are much more likely to get sick, feel depressed and be stressed. If it is high, we are capable of being happy, healthy and less stressed. A Reiki treatment can help you to achieve more balanced life force energy. Reiki is especially effective in helping process grief and major stressful life events which you may have encountered or are currently going through and leaves you feeling balanced, stronger, revitalized, relaxed and restored.

Allow yourself to experience whatever may arise without attachment. All you need to do is focus on relaxation, restoration, and receiving the reiki energy.
