Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session, we work directly with your energy field to remove blockages, detoxify your system, and restore your vital life force energy. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to conduct the necessary energy force between us. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain.
Trained in Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Kripalu yoga certified, INS Wellness offers private, one-on-one sessions for chair, mat, and restorative yoga. We bring over 30 years of yoga teaching to experience to each session. No previous yoga experience necessary!
