Reiki is an ancient laying-on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. This healing art is an effective delivery system. The Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed. Reiki's ki-energies flow out of the practitioner's body through the palms of the hands while they are touching the recipient's body http://healing.about.com/cs/reiki/a/reikiplex.htm.

4/23/14- Past Life Regression Therapy- Regression therapy is a form of guided self-healing which allows a release of core energy patterns we bring with us from past lives. Both unresolved physical and emotional patterns in this life may be reflections of patterns from past lives. Regression therapy is an effective tool which can release these patterns. Through hypnosis, a therapeutic trance which is a combination of physical relaxation and mental concentration, you can be regressed to an earlier time and be guided to process past actions and make adjustments in core beliefs according to who you are now. During hypnosis you are never unconscious and you are aware of everything that goes on.

Past-life regression can help heal an emotional or physical ailment, such as:

  • Fears and phobias
  • Relationship problems - connection with people in general perplexing relationship with an individual
  • Depression
  • Physical complaints
  • Sexual problems
  • Addictions

Are you struggling with pain?
Migraines – headaches – back ache –muscle pain – neck, shoulder, arm, leg pain – fibromyalgia – tendonitis –stomach ache …….. and many other types of pain
Pain is part of life, we all have experienced it and many of us have paid lots of money trying to get rid of it. We also know that once pain sets in, our fear starts growing: we think the pain may never go away or it may come back when we least expect it. Little by little we limit what we do because we are afraid our pain could get worse. Add to this the emotions of anger and frustration that pain creates because it interferes with our ability to enjoy life. As a country we spend billions of dollar a year trying to heal our pain and many times we end more frustrated because the pain stays and the money goes.
In this Drug-Free Pain Management Clinic you will:
• Learn a new way of healing pain
• Learn how to use Energy Techniques to release pain where nothing else will
• Understand what emotions are behind our struggle to release pain
• Find out how we program ourselves to get the pain back again and again and how to reverse our thinking!
