BRAIN ENTRAINMENT THERAPY
A 30-minute treatment that aims to improve brain performance and help the mind and body come back into a balanced state by training the brain to recognize, repeat, and internalize certain brainwaves: delta, theta, alpha, beta, and gamma waves.
Through the use of tactile, bone-conductive transducers (we lovingly refer to them as vibration stations), uniquely curated frequencies and waves are transfused into the body via vibrations rather than through audible audio tracks, meaning that you’ll feel the vibrations in your body rather than hearing them. We use low frequencies that mimic and stimulate certain brainwave functions that can include: alertness, relaxation, meditation, sleep, deep meditative work, and creative learning.
We also have research-backed suggested treatments that may aid in bone and tissue regeneration, fibromyalgia, insomnia, stress, chronic headaches, maintaining focus and developing new neural patterns to stimulate the learning process.
A 60-minute energetic treatment uniquely combines metaphysical counseling, Reiki, and vibrational therapy via crystals, essential oils, and musical instruments to treat you holistically.
Like everything else in the Universe, we are composed of tiny energetic particles. Due to this, it is logical to assume that we can affect, and be affected, by the energetic particles within us and without us. At the root of nearly all physical issues there is something happening concurrently at the mental, emotional, or spiritual level. When something begins to appear physically and affect your well-being, it is your body’s desperate last call to get you to notice and take action! If you can heal the roots, you can heal every part that is connected.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF ENERGY WORK
In a study published in Biological Research for Nursing, 21 healthcare professionals with burnout (a work-related mental health condition characterized by mental exhaustion, emotional detachment, and a lowered sense of personal accomplishment) received a 30-minute Reiki session with an experienced therapist, as well as a 30-minute placebo treatment with an inexperienced therapist who mimicked the Reiki treatment. The two treatments were separated by one week; participants were randomly assigned their treatment order, and they weren’t told which treatment they were getting during which session. Researchers found that heart rate variability was greater following the Reiki session, which suggests (using a very quantifiable physiological measurement) that Reiki may help a stressed nervous system relax.

Research shows that a single Reiki session may help your autonomic nervous system, the primitive part of your nervous system that you don’t need to consciously control (it's responsible for things like heartbeat and breathing), move from a sympathetic-dominant, or “fight-or-flight” state, to a parasympathetic-dominant, or “rest-and-digest” state which helps you to relax.

Reiki & other forms of energy work may also improve mood and sleep: A study published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine found that college students who received six 30-minute Reiki sessions reported greater improvements in stress, depression, anxiety, and sleep.

Research suggests that Reiki may lower anxiety, stress, and pain in people undergoing surgery. In a study published in 2017 of patients undergoing knee replacement surgery, researchers separated 46 patients into three groups: One group received three or four 30-minute Reiki treatments throughout their hospital stay; a second group received the same number of placebo (sham) Reiki sessions; and a third group received neither Reiki nor sham Reiki. Every group also received standard medical care. Researchers found that only those who received Reiki saw significant reductions in pain, blood pressure, breathing rate, and anxiety pre- and post-surgery.

Keep in mind that energy work is a form of complementary therapy, which means it works alongside — not in place of — other medical and therapeutic techniques. It should not be used as a substitute for other treatments your healthcare providers have prescribed.
