Psychotherapy is essentially a carefully-tailored series of conversations between therapist and client, the goal of which is the improvement in emotional and psychological well-being of the client. Good therapy is a collaboration between therapist and client; it ultimately provides release and relief by tapping into previously unavailable resources for healing. In this way, the capacity for creative thought and action is renewed, and new skills are easier to learn.

Reiki / Reflexology
Reiki is a very specific energy healing technique, in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body, as in “laying on of hands”, to help balance the flow of energy in a way similar to acupuncture or acupressure. The benefits of Reiki may include stress reduction and pain relief.
Reflexology is another energy healing technique in which light pressure is applied to areas in the feet or hands, to help stimulate the flow of energy along meridians or channels that effect other parts of the body, in a way similar to acupuncture or acupressure. The benefits of Reflexology may include stress reduction and pain relief.
