What is Reiki? REIKI is a Japanese word that means universal life energy or force. It is the power which flows through everything and is the essence of all matter.

Reiki I

TBA from 10am – 4pm

Upon completion of this class, you will be able to provide Reiki to yourself and others!

You will receive four First Degree Reiki Attunements, which will allow the Reiki energy to flow through you. This ability lasts throughout your lifetime! You will learn the history of Reiki and the Reiki precepts, how to ground, center, protect, as well as an introduction to the chakras, and protocols and hand positions for providing Reiki to yourself and others. There will be plenty of time for hands-on practice.

Aromatherapy & Reiki Healing

Private Sessions: Join Catherine Carver and Sandy Sferrazza for an Aromatherapy and Reiki Healing session. The session will begin with a 30 minute Aromatherapy Reading in which you select scents that correspond with your internal need, discuss the process and correlation between your inner need and the essences, then we will make your fragrance for you. Following that you will lay on a comfortable massage table and experience a 30 minute Reiki Healing Session.

This will be a very special and personal hour for you. As a result, we are offering only 5 sessions. A $20 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your spot. Please sign up for your preferred time as space is limited.

Book your appointment for May 30th and August 22nd between the hours of 10am – 5:30pm. The cost for the Session is $70. Your $20 deposit will be subtracted from the total. To see available times and pay your deposit, click here.

Tai Chi is meditative movement bringing a sense of well being and calm. Beautiful to watch, but more beautiful to experience the movement itself.

George Adler learned Chen-style Tai Chi in the 1980s in Ann Arbor, Michigan from the Taoist Tai Chi master Lee Tang-Kok. Lee lives in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia. George has continued practicing, studying, and teaching Chen style off and on for the past 30 years.
