A Reiki session, (usually 30-60-90 minutes) is done on a massage table or chair, whichever is more comfortable. After a brief discussion, Nancy can tailor your treatment to your needs with a non-invasive, light touch. Reiki is a safe and natural method that can jump start a person's own healing to reduce stress, manage pain, speed healing, and enhance other forms of treats, i.e. surgery, chemotherapy and other complimentary and alternative medicines (CAM) practices.
