Tonic Herb Therapy
"...a profound feeling of relaxation that washes over the body."
Reiki is a form of alternative medicine called energy healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique through which a "universal energy" is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing.
Consultations are always free!
We love talking about Reiki, its amazing energy, and how Tonic herbs can work for you.
What to expect during your Reiki treatment
While there is no “typical” treatment session, the treatment usually lasts between 45 – 75 minutes.
The fully clothed patient reclines on a table as the therapist hones in on 12–15 energy pathways across the body. The therapist’s hands then act as conduits of positive energy, hovering above each pathway for several minutes at a time. Advocates of Reiki report a profound feeling of relaxation that washes over the body during these sessions—some drift off to sleep, and others claim to experience out-of-body visions. The energy “knows” where to go and can never cause harm.
Reiki is used by athletes around the world to recover quicker from workouts and injury.
Tonic herbs are the elite herbs of the Asian herbal system, the most fully developed herbal system in the world. Tonic herbs have always held a very special place in Asian culture. These very special natural substances have been associated with the highest qualities of living, and thus are associated with the ideals of long life, slow aging, glowing health, happiness, wisdom, physical vitality, adaptability, sexual vigor and response, mental acuity and clear intuition, love and compassion.
Tonic herbs are not harsh and are not specifically medicinal in the conventional sense. Tonic herbs help to regulate our myriad functions so that we can re-establish and maintain our balance, our adaptability, our vigor and our youthfulness. Since tonic herbs are not medicine they can be taken for extended periods of time, vitually with no side effects.
At Affinity Reiki and Tonic Herbs, we take the time to get to know you, and together we will work toward your goals.
