Reiki | Villa Azul and Lotus Retreat

The therapist will gently place their hands on or above the body in a sequence of positions to allow the energy to flow and remove energy blockages where most needed. As well as working on specific ailments, it also creates a feeling of deep relaxation and overall wellbeing, helps to reduce stress and promotes healing both physically and emotionally.
