           Hands of Hope Reiki
            Wednesday, May 19
 

Reiki was discovered in Japan in the 1920s, and is a high-frequency healing energy that flows from an attuned Reiki practitioner.  It can be delivered in-person via light touch or remotely across any distance by a master-level practitioner, with the practitioner locking onto the “energy signature” of the client.

The emotional benefits of Reiki treatments include a greater sense of peace, relaxation, and mindfulness. The physical benefits include a more robust immune system and reduced inflammation – a factor in most diseases.

Reiki is 100% safe and non-invasive and pairs beautifully with both Western and Eastern treatment modalities. Practical applications of Reiki include reducing the side effects of chemotherapy and speeding recovery from fractures, sports injuries and surgeries.

 

15 Minute Session: $45 

 

Hope Tarr holds a Master’s in Developmental Psychology and a Ph.D. in Education, both from the Catholic University of America. Attuned to Reiki in the 1990’s as a Master level (Okuden) practitioner, she treats clients with a broad range of clinical challenges including arthritis and sciatica, fractures, post-operative recovery, cancer and side-effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapies, anxiety and depression, grief and loneliness. Clients report relief from pain and discomfort, more rapid recovery times from surgery and illnesses and an overall boost in energy level and mood.

Intuitive Tarot Readings with Trish
    Sunday, May 16
 

The Tarot provides insights for self-discovery. A reading can show the path of where one’s energy is moving and reveals a story to whatever might be relevant at the time. Open an avenue to your inner being and receive insights for self-discovery. 

 

20 Minute Reading: $40 

 

Trish brings over 35 years’ experience in intuitive reading. She is able to sense a person’s energy field in order to give them insights, understanding and clarity of where they are and where they are going. She is able to receive messages from her clients' spirit guides and spirit family. She can see images around a person that tells her what energies are at play in their life. And she sometimes picks up past lives that are impacting their current life. She will use the tarot cards to get insight into a particular question or life in general. 

 

Before you get a reading, please center, ground and relax. Have an open mind. Create an intention to gain insights from your reading. Leave your expectations behind and drop preconceived outcomes to your questions as they tend to energetically get in the way. Have a few questions ready, let the reading flow and let Spirit take the reading where it needs to go.

Soap of the Month
 
Lavender
Lavender  comes from the Latin word "Lavare", which means "to wash". According to the earliest documentation from Ancient Egypt, lavender oil was used in the mummification process. Lavender was used as a bath additive in Persia, Ancient Greece and Roman cultures, where it was believed that lavender helped to purify the body and mind.  Such a multi-purpose plant, lavender is used to promote good health and well being. Lavender oil is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to heal minor burns and bug bites.  Lavender is widely used for relaxation and stress relief, and imparts calming qualities due to the soothing and unique fragrance
