REIKI (pronounced "ray-key") is a Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction.

Added to that, our modern society has gotten rid of all of the things we humans used to do to let the world know that we are in the middle of a challenging time. Things such as putting a black wreath on our front door or wearing a black arm band were used in the past to let the world know to be
So you're pregnant! Yay! But you're having sore hip joints. You haven't slept in days because you can't find a comfortable position. Your neck and shoulders are screaming at you; those areas normally give you trouble but now it's even worse. Your calves are cramping at night and it's hard to jump out of the bed quickly at this stage of the game.

Massage can be a wonderful thing. But it can also be a bit scary, if you've never had a professional massage before. When you arrive at the office, I’ll have a brief intake form for you to complete, if you haven't already completed the online form that was emailed to you when the appointment was made.
