Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
Geri Wilimek, LICSW
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teaches a set of skills that help people more effectively address chronic pain, issues with sleep, work, family and medical stress. It teaches new skills addressing anxiety and everyday concerns and worries. Anyone who wants to establish a meditation practice will benefit from an MBSR course.
Reflexology, Reiki and Raindrop Therapy
Donna Morris, RN, Dr.PH
Reflexology is based on the principle that reflexes on the ears, hands and feet connect to all parts of the body through neural pathways. That is, by working the various reflexes, messages are sent via the nervous system to the brain and to the organs and systems of the body. Energy work (Reiki and Healing Touch) involves healing energy channeled from the “universe” to the client. I also perform Raindrop Technique, which uses 9 essential oils to balance energy, release toxins, and facilitate the flow of energy throughout the body. All sessions are customized to the individual’s needs.
