The Healing Butterfly Touch

Gentle and caring practitioners

Reiki & Yoga


Reiki, as defined by the International Centre for Reiki Training (, is a “Japanise technique for stress reduction and relaxation, that also promotes healing.” Rei means “God’s wisdom or Higher Force”. Ki means “Life force energy”, so you could say that Reiki is Life force energy that flows from God or a Higher Force.

It was founded by Dr. Mikao Usui and it is practiced by “laying on” hands on specific parts of the body (or over the body) of the client.  The practitioner is a channeller of this life force energy to allow the client to re-balance, replenish, restore.  It works not only on the body, but on the mind and spirit, bringing a feeling of relaxation and deep peace after the treatment.  Some people have even reported improvements on physical issues after a set of Reiki treatments.

At The Healing Butterfly Touch, we integrate our Reiki treatments with elements of Aura-Soma and the use of Crystals in order to enhance the experience and bringing it to the next level.

The Reiki General treatment lasts 1 hour and we ask you to allow enough time, so you don’t rush around.

In a Reiki Guided Session, the client and the therapist interact during some parts of the treatment.  The therapist guides the client through a process that enables gently bringing a situation to the awareness, in order for it to be healed and release blocks.

This session takes approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.

 For best results, we recommend you to have a quiet time after the Reiki session and drink plenty of water.
