Coming from the Japanese words Rei (meaning “higher power”) and Ki (meaning “life force energy”), Reiki is a Japanese technique administered by the laying of hands. Based on the idea that life force energy flows through us, Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit and creates many beneficial effects that include relaxation, feelings of peace, security and well-being. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.
Integrative Reflexology® is a massage typically done on the feet, hands, and ears that stimulates the proprioceptors in your body to increase the stimulation of the nerve endings, creating a calming whole body effect. Benefits include feeling deeply relaxed, increased digestive response, sinus drainage, relieved PMS symptoms, reduced swelling in the feet, and increased circulation.
Prenatal massage is a Swedish massage for those who are pregnant in their 2nd and 3rd trimesters. This massage is typically light to firm in pressure and incorporates continuous effleurage strokes and light stretching to relieve any aches or pains. It promotes lymphatic movement which is great when experiencing swelling around the ankles and is also great for relaxation. If you’re pregnant and looking for massage in your 1st trimester, you must have permission from your preferred medical doctor. Ashley will not give you a massage in your 1st trimester without your doctor’s consent. However, she offers Reiki during the 1st trimester and her clients have found these sessions to be very as beneficial!
