Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. It allows deep relaxation, accelerates natural healing, decreases blood pressure, aids in better sleep, relieves pain, removes energy blockages, clears emotions, and increases our natural vitality.

Although the effects of Reiki are profound, it is a natural process that is easy to learn. No prior experience in healing is necessary. Continuing education credits are available to Licenced Massage Therapists. 

Mandy Main has been practicing Reiki for over a decade and she has trained hundreds of students since becoming a Reiki Master in 2008. She brings to the classes a wealth of knowledge in energetic techniques from many different lineages including Usui Reiki, martial arts, Ayurveda, Yoga, and massage therapy. Mandy is passionate about sharing her knowledge to empower others. Her classes are always fun, informative, and down-to-earth. Feel free to reach out with any questions.
