Reiki Bodywork is a Japanese hands-on healing system that works with the human energy bio-field to accelerate healing of physical injuries, discomforts, and diseases. It often relieves mental distress and promotes spiritual clarity. Reiki is especially dynamic in the areas of physical well-being and personal growth, and it can be incorporated into a variety of healing arts. This bodywork is a subtle yet powerful modality used to clear blockages. Incorporated in each session is a combination of aromatherapy, sound healing, and guided meditation/journeying.

Animal Reiki is a healing modality which has the power to clear imbalances, create a deep sense of peace, and allow for new and harmonious patterns of health and wellness to emerge. The calming effect is nurturing and soothing for the animal. Ann has helped many animals ranging from dogs and cats to various wildlife. Her greatest achievements were helping her male cat reverse his heart condition and assisting her anxious female cat barely acceptable of touch to now receive massive amounts of love and petting. Done from a distance or at the clients' home.
MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a form of bodywork used to assist lymph flow in the body, increasing the rate to 10 times its normal flow. It is a gentle, connective tissue massage technique that accelerates the movement of the lymphatic fluid that bathes the tissues through the lymphatic system and into the bloodstream. The body's healing is maximized by removing toxins and giving life to new lymphocytes (thereby amping up the immune system). MLD is used pre and post surgery and for a host of conditions ranging from sprained ankles, fibromyalgia, allergy relief and muscle tears, to name a few. It optimizes and minimizes recovery time. A proven method to use alone or in conjunction with other holistic therapies.
Chair Massage is an effective and transformative method of massage done on-site at the office: it can be used for monthly wellness appreciation days, special events or occasions such as teacher appreciation, and during tax season to destress the most stressed accountants. Since 2013, Ann has provided chair massage at Sikorsky in Stratford, CT once a week. Using a uniquely designed chair which aids in the body's release and mental decompression, the noted benefits are increased productivity, decreased sick time, and enhanced morale.
