Reiki is an ancient form of energy healing that can significantly help in reducing stress, anxiety and chronic pain, as well as promote a deep sense of well-being and inner calm. Reiki helps to restore harmony and balance to the mind, body and soul. Through a series of hand positions (over your clothes), vital life force energy flows from the practitioner through you which helps to heal blockages, imbalances or low energy which may be causing you illness or stress. Reiki is extremely beneficial for all ages, safe for women who are pregnant, enhances the healing process and restoring energy while one is ill, under treatment or in recovery. Reiki is a very relaxing, safe, holistic therapy which can be given as often as needed.
This treatment involves both ‘touch’ and ‘non-touch’ placement of hands by the practitioner. Both are equally effective so it’s up to the recipient/client to request their preference at time of treatment.

Lydia Koduah, Registered Massage Therapist and Holistic Nutritionist
As a Health Care Practitioner, I combine my skills, knowledge and experience to blend my Holistic Nutritionist background into my massage Therapy practice. When my patients present with stiff muscles or a combination of muscle spasms and chronic pain, I am able to offer a full mind body spirit solution rather than just providing a regular massage. I specialize in relaxation, deep tissue myofascia release. Acu- cupping, hotstone , Gua Sha and ASMR. As a graduate of the Royal Canadian College of Massage I had the honour of working closely with the late Ben Grosberg who was a pain specialist, the founder and clinic head of the school. There I learned and practice full body assessment and treatment protocol.
