Bri-Cho Spa also offers Reiki Healing for those interested in spiritual healing experiences. But for those who do not know and are interested, what is Reiki?
According to Reiki.org, “Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by ‘laying on hands.’ The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words — Rei, which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power,” and Ki which is “life force energy.” So, Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

Those who are into crystals for all reasons, being hobby, healing, and more, will find everything they’re looking for at Crystal Blue Persuasion.
