What is Reiki?
Reiki is a relaxing energy healing art that began in Japan. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means "Universal Life" and (Ki) which means "Energy". Reiki is not affiliated with any religion or religious practice. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using guided life force energy and focused energy symbols.
Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Reiki Practitioners understand and believe that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy within themselves. It is believed that a person's "ki" or energy should be strong and free-flowing.
When this is true a person's body and mind is in a positive state of health.
When the energy becomes blocked, or congested it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance. A Reiki session can help to ease tension and stress supporting the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels-physical, mental, and emotional.

What happens during Reiki?
During a Reiki session, the practitioners hands are lightly placed on or off the body connecting and directing energy to free up restrictions and congestion. Before a Reiki Session the practitioner, sometimes with the help of the recipient, will choose crystals to use during the session that complement the desired results. The crystals are then placed on or near the body during the session. The Chakras of the body will also be assessed to see if any are congested or blocked so that they can be opened and balanced during the session.
What are Chakras?
Chakras are 7 major energy vortex centers in our bodies that run along the spinal column extending from the base of the spine to the brain. The chakras are the control center for the flow of energy into and out of the body. They link the physical body to the subtle energy fields around the body that represent emotional, mental and spiritual activities. The chakras are connected to the physical body through the spinal column.
Excesses or deficiencies in each chakra will indicate where the body is out of balance. These imbalances can manifest in the form of physical aches and pains or illness or in an emotional imbalances such as anxiety or an addiction. Although many people associate the chakras with sitting on a yoga mat, sound can be an effective way to improve the flow of energy in the body and restore the proper balance to each chakra. Tawnee will often use a crystal sound bowl, rain stick, chimes or a Tibetan sound bowl in addition to energy work to clear any congestion and raise the vibration in the Chakra system.
Massage is more than just "treating yourself" If you think getting a massage is just a luxury or too self-indulgent, something to feel guilty about giving yourself...please think again!
Massage and body work happens to be one practice that can help you maintain physical mental and emotional well-being on an ongoing basis...especially when it is a regular part of your wellness routine. We all deal with our own and sometimes collective life challenges from time to time that cause a disruption in our energy field and vibration which can cause stress. It has been found that an upwards of ninety percent of the root cause of all disease is stress related.
Massage and body work can calm the peripheral nervous systems, thus promoting relaxation and better overall health. Some of the benefits of massage include reduced action of stress responses like tension, fear and anxiety, worry and depression, insomnia and fatigue. Improvement in blood circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells, stimulation of the lymphatic system, which carries away the body's waste products and strengthens the immune system, relief and prevention of muscle cramps and spasms, as well as help with pain management and healing in diagnosis such as long covid symptoms, arthritis, sciatica, chronic back pain, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and more. The benefits of having a regular massage are far reaching and will have a ripple effect in bringing balance and a platform for a more pain-free life.

Catered just for you Momma! This session is intended to ease muscle discomfort associated with pregnancy from conception through delivery. Taking care to acknowledge that there are "two fo you" on my table, makes for a unique massage. Knowledge of how to massage during pregnancy is important, as a mother's body is constantly changing. For example-changes in hormones on your ligaments, hips, water retention and pressure on certain blood vessels are all a part of how we adjust for massage technique. Leg cramps, sore and swollen feet, back-ache and shoulder pain are alleviated. Additionally, prenatal massage improves circulation and lymph flow, decreases stress on weight bearing joints, provides emotional support and increases positive energy to both mother and baby. We ask that you bring a doctors note if you are considered "high risk" so that I can prepare you for the right amount of pressure and technique during your session. I provide plenty of different sized pillows for your comfort, whether or not we are starting out side-lying or not.
