WOMB HEALING

1:1 Reiki Services

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. 

Womb Reiki works specifically with the reproductive system and womb center. The benefits of womb reiki includes: releasing cords of past lovers, increase clarity/gut intuition, spark creative energy, revitalize sensuality, and remove energetic/emotional blockages that may cause physical disharmony. 

Those with chronic illness of the womb like endometriosis and PCOS also find temporary physical relief after this energy medicine. Womb Reiki has been sought after by those with pregnancy related healing like infertility, miscarriage, abortion support and postpartum healing. But for those who have no desire for pregnancy or medically cannot conceive, womb Reiki has supported them through hysterectomies, heavy, absent or irregular periods and endometrial ablations.
