Reiki Energy Healing


Reiki is an ancient practice that has been used for centuries in the healing of the body, emotion and mind, creating many beneficial effects including relaxation and reduction of stress. The word “Reiki” comes from the Japanese words “rei” meaning universal and “ki” meaning life energy.

A Reiki healing session can induce a comfortable state of being and relaxation that can bring alteration in the client’s consciousness. Reiki healing complements Eastern and Western medicine and everybody can benefit from it.

Reiki helps to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and gently balances the life energies, bringing health and well-being to the recipient. This simple, non-invasive healing system works to promote health and well-being of the entire physical, emotional and mental body.


  • Helps relieve pain

  • Assists with emotional clearing

  • Creates deep relaxation

  • Releases stress and tension

  • Helps with acute injuries and chronic conditions (asthma, eczema, headaches, etc.)

  • Reduces some of the side effects of drugs and helps the body's recovery

  • Improves sleep

  • Reduces blood pressure


The long term practice of Reiki will help keep the body’s natural balance in order. When this balance is restored we are generally more relaxed, stress-free, and better able to heal ourselves.

The body can also heal itself naturally, deal properly with stress and built-up toxins, and cope with anxiety and depression. Reiki will also provide additional energy required to recover from illness.

What to expect

A Reiki practitioner is trained in channelling the abundant energy that exists in the universe and using it to heal the recipient by the gentle placing of hands on or above the body.

In addition, a Reiki practitioner can send healing Reiki energy from a distance across time and space because we are all made of energy, connected and part of a larger whole . Distance Reiki can be sent to anyone, anywhere at any time with the client’s permission.

This placement allows the energy to “flow” from the practitioner to the recipient and target specific areas within the body that require balancing in order to maintain the “natural balance” intended.

Reiki is a non invasive process that does not rely on physical touch.

Forest Therapy

High falls.jpg

Forest Therapy, also known as Shinrin-Yoku, meaning forest bathing in Japanese, is a therapeutic practice that guides people to an inner state of relaxation and sensory restoration through a series of invitations that bring participants into a present-moment relationship with the forest. It is a gentle, physically undemanding practice that takes place in an area of forest or along a forest trail. 


Scientific studies show that nature and forest time can:

  • Reduce blood pressure and stress-related cortisol levels;

  • Increase ability to focus, including children with ADHD;

  • Accelerate recovery from surgery or illness;

  • Boost immune system functioning;

  • Increase energy levels;

  • Improve sleep.


A Forest Therapy practice can also support individual, community and global health by:

  • Enhancing creativity and innovation;

  • Improving mood and decreasing “rumination” (the pattern of repetitively spinning thoughts and worries);

  • Deepening connection to intuition;

  • Strengthening a sense of connection and relationship with other people, and with the "more-than-human" world;

  • Increasing teamwork and pro-social action;

  • Bridging the separation between humans and the rest of nature.

What to expect

  • A forest bathing walk is a guided experience that is typically 2-3 hours long, depending on the group, the season, etc.

  • The distance covered is minimal, as the focus is on fully being and experiencing “here” versus arriving “somewhere else”

  • Participants are guided through a series of sensory-based activities called invitations. These are intended to help individuals slow down, drop into their senses, explore, connect with their surroundings, and follow their curiosities.

  • The walk pulses between individual time exploring, and reconvening with the group in a sharing circle to share what they are noticing. Listening and being heard in this way helps to deepen and integrate participants’ experiences.

  • The walk ends with the sharing of tea — incorporating local tea plants and the sharing of experiences.

  • Participants will often feel very relaxed after a forest therapy walk, and many may have a profound experience, realization, or gain meaningful insight about their lives.


A core intention of this practice is for its foundations, and quality of engagement with the more-than-human world to be readily incorporated into one’s daily life. That is, remembering to slow down, pay attention, and engage with the life that surrounds you, as well as continue your own journey of deepening your relationship with our earth and its inhabitants. Walking down a city street may never be the same again.

Forest bathing is for everyone. You do not need to have a profound relationship to the natural world, meditate, or have specific scientific or naturalist knowledge to benefit from this practice. Further,  nature enthusiasts will benefit deeply from this practice, as it presents a different way to observe and be in relationship with the natural world.

The desire and inclination to be in nature is in the DNA of all humans — we are literally wired for this deep connection. We are part of the natural world in which we evolved, and we long for this return and reconnection, whether we consciously realize it or not.
