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.

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.

(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.
