Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also
promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an
unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life
force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we
are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher
Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki

Energy-Based Healing is a form of therapy in which the practitioner taps
healing energy of the Universal Energy Field and becomes a conduit for that energy, allowing it
to flow into the body of the client to aid the client's physical healing. There are several
different healing techniques which come under the umbrella of energy healing; among these are
Healing Touch, Reiki, Polarity Therapy, and several others. The common characteristic among
these energy-based healing techniques is that the healer manipulates one or more of the
client's own energy fields or patterns so as to restore proper balance and harmony to those
patterns on many levels; which promotes healing and proper functioning of the physical

- Quantum Touch
Quantum-Touch is an energy healing modality that applies the principles of
resonance and entrainment to facilitate healing. Practitioners learn to focus and amplify
life-force energy (known as "chi" in Chinese and "prana" in Sanskrit) by combining various
breathing and body awareness exercises. When the practitioner resonates at a high frequency,
the client often entrains to, or matches, the higher frequency, thereby facilitating healing
using the body's biological intelligence. Life-force energy affects matter on the quantum,
subatomic level and works its way up through atoms, molecules, cells, tissues, and structure.

- Rebirthing Breathwork
Rebirthing Breathwork is a safe, gentle, yet powerful process of conscious,
connected energy breathing which helps you to identify and dissolve negative limiting thoughts,
suppressed feelings and emotions and restrictive energy patterns retained in the body traceable
through life back to birth and or conception. A powerful healing tool on the mental, emotional,
physical and spiritual level, Rebirthing Breathwork begins a transformation of the subconscious
impression of life from one of primal pain to one of increasing pleasure. Through the use of
affirmations you will learn to heighten your self-esteem, expand your awareness of Spirit,
increase your self-acceptance and vitality and, replace your self-defeating programs, thus
enabling you to achieve profound and lasting positive permanent life changes. With the
Rebirthing Breathwork process and these techniques, any of your outdated subconscious behavior
patterns and sabotage programs can be made conscious so they can be released, thus your heart
will open to receive more love, your mind peace, and the concept of abundance can be made a
living reality for you. Rebirthing Breathwork is releasing your resistance to life and saying
Yes to your own life force.
Rebirthing Breathwork uses the breath to clear and cleanse the physical, mental, and emotional
bodies, bringing about a new integration of mind, body and Spirit. It was developed by Leonard
Orr in the early '70's, although it is actually a very ancient practice, related to pranayama
yoga. It was originally called Rebirthing because memories from birth often surface to be
healed. Besides Leonard Orr, other well-known authors in this field include Sondra Ray, Bob
Mandel, Phil Laut, Jim Leonard, and Colin Sisson.
Over the past 30+ years, Rebirthing Breathwork has propagated a variety of personal growth and
therapeutic processes, which are today collectively known as "Breathwork." In the initial
stages, Rebirthing Breathwork is experienced through a series of 10 individual sessions with an
experienced Rebirther Breathworker after which the "rebirthee" has a life-long tool for
integration and healing.
