How will Aromatherapy help me?
Aromatherapists use our knowledge of natural fragrances and essential oils to improve a client’s well-being. This holistic method of medicine is a lot more complex than simply lighting incense or plugging in deodorizers; an aromatherapist is a healer harnessing the powers of nature to promote a healthy lifestyle.
To give you an example of the power of our senses you might have noticed that even small changes in smell can affect the way you feel.
For example, the odour of a mildew-covered room can make you feel icky, while the scent of fresh lavender can be relaxing and allow you to drift off in a comfortable sleep. Each essential oil possesses distinct properties that can make you feel energized and awake while soothing away stress. These are the tools you use as an aromatherapist

What is Reiki?
Pronounced “Ray – Key”
“Rei” – meaning mysterious, transcendental spirit. The Soul. The Sacred. That which possesses an infinite power.
“Ki” – light and energy, something unseen, atmosphere, vital energy, vapour. Breath. The energy of the entire universe.
It’s called Reiki because as a practice it was formally discovered and established by a Buddhist man, Mikao Usui, in 1920’s Japan. Look beyond the surface though, and you’ll realise that every culture has a word for “Ki”. It is “Prana” in Sanskrit, “Chi” in Chinese and described as Life Force or “Divine Energy” in English.
How will Reiki help me?
Life force flows within the physical body though pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. … Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy.
Simply, Reiki will find what you need and sweetly give it to you.
Oh but that said you don’t have to have something “wrong” with you to get a Reiki treatment. Wherever you are you can plug into a source that replenishes you with love, grace, peace and who doesn’t want more of that good stuff?
What to expect in a session?
A complete Reiki session is offered to a fully clothed recipient who is lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably supported in a chair.
Most commonly, Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner’s hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso. The placement of the hands should never be intrusive or inappropriate, nor should there be any pressure.
What might I experience?
“I feel very refreshed and seem to be thinking more clearly.”
“I think I fell asleep.”
“I can’t believe how hot your hands got!”
“I feel more relaxed than even after a massage.”
“My headache is gone.”
These are some of things people typically say after a Reiki session.
The experience of Reiki is subjective, changeable, and sometimes very subtle. People often experience heat in the practitioner’s hands, but sometimes the practitioner’s hands feel refreshingly cool. Other common experiences are subtle pulsations where the practitioner’s hands are placed or cascading waves of pulsations throughout the body.
People often comment how comforting they find the experience of Reiki to be.
Some people fall into a deep, sleeplike meditative state. Sometimes the experience of Reiki is dramatic, while for other people, the first session in particular may be uneventful, although they feel somehow better afterward. The most common experience is an almost immediate release of stress and a feeling of deep relaxation.
Reiki is cumulative and even people who don’t notice much the first time usually have progressively deeper experiences if they continue. Besides the immediate experience of the Reiki, you may notice other changes that continue to unfold as the day goes on: perhaps stronger digestion, a sense of being more centered and poised and less reactive, and sleeping deeply that night.
