We offer aromatherapy through trained staff for hospital and surgery patients. We use three scents that have their own unique effect on a person’s mood, ability to rest and overall comfort.

  • Lavender is used to encourage relaxation and sleep, decrease anxiety, for pain relief in labor and to reduce headache pain.
  • Peppermint is used to reduce headache pain, fever and stress.
  • Sweet Orange is refreshing, uplifting and calming.

We use 100% pure and unaltered aromatherapy oils.

    In Japanese, Rei means spiritual wisdom and ki means energy, so Reiki (RAY-kee) means spiritual energy. Reiki energy is a smart energy that knows what areas need help to heal and relax the mind and body. Reiki cannot hurt you.

    People of all faiths or beliefs can use Reiki to help with relaxation and healing.

    The Reiki Experience

    • A gentle touch or hand placement just above the body to support the healing energy.
    • You may feel sensations such as tingling, warmth or coolness.
    • Wear comfortable clothes for your Reiki experience.

    What are Chakras (SHA-kruhs)?

    Chakras are spinning wheels of energy. There are seven basic Chakras in the body that Reiki treatments connect with to help balance energy. They are associated with glands, organs, feelings, thoughts and colors. Negative thoughts can cause the Chakras to become unaligned, which can then throw off
    our energy flow. To heal is to bring the chakras into alignment and balance.

    As humans, we will have feelings and worries throughout our lives that affect our energy. Positive thoughts of love and faith keep the energy flowing and the Chakras aligned. Always remember to let the love and light in.
