Reiki

Reiki is a gentle hands-on healing technique that promotes deep relaxation and pain relief. Reiki has ancient Tibetan roots. The practice was revitalized in the mid-nineteenth century by Japanese physician and philosopher Mikao Usui. Reiki energy has the potential to heal, harmonize and balance down to the cellular level.  

Reiki is a most effective treatment for rebalancing and harmonizing the mind, body and spirit. Because it is non-invasive, Reiki is compatible with all conventional Western medical procedures, and today is administered in many hospitals, even in operating rooms.

Reiki is an excellent adjunct therapy for those undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. Wellness and You offers Reiki to people in all stages of cancer – in treatment, pre- and post-surgery and during chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

What Reiki helps

Here's what some of Peg's clients have to say....

Marianne, a 47 year old woman with breast cancer who was undergoing chemotherapy said “Before I had Reiki, I lacked confidence to drive, my appetite was off and I wasn’t sleeping well. After my first Reiki treatment, I had a big fat pizza and slept like a baby!”. Marianne O.

"Our Reiki treatment journey together was at a time in my life when I was experiencing physical, emotional and spiritual turmoil. I needed help to face my dis-ease issues and work on my healing process. With her help, I have mobilized my strengths and feel confident as I look to a future of great living, loving and freedom! I am a better woman today because of her. Thank you, Peg." M.G.

“Doing Reiki during my chemotherapy treatments was just wonderful. I looked forward to the relaxation of Reiki, as well as knowing that holistically it was a rejuvenation of some kind. I would close my eyes and feel that all the positive energy from outside my body would make its way into me and begin to heal me. Chemotherapy drains you in many ways. By doing Reiki I felt more energetic in my everyday tasks while feeling more tranquil and peaceful with my body.       I couldn't think of a better way to achieve that harmony than with Reiki.” MCD
