Reflexology is a non-invasive pressure technique based on the principle that there are reflex points in the feet that correspond with all the body's systems, structures, muscles, and organs.
Applying pressure to these reflex points, allows a body to relax, reduce tension and alleviate pain while encourage healing.
Reflexology is a good introduction for those new to the healing arts due to its gentle approach.
The word Reiki is composed of two words - Rei and Ki.
Rei can be defined as the higher intelligence that guides the creation and functioning of the universe while Ki is the non-physical energy that animates all living things.
Reiki flows where it is needed in the recipient, creating the healing conditions necessary for the individuals needs. Reiki can work directly in unconscious parts of the mind/body which contain negative Ki inhibiting "thoughts and feelings" and eliminate them.
