A local all-organic salon and spa recently launched a new service: Reiki. Click to learn how it helps both your physical and mental health.
From eco-friendly beauty products, to organic hair treatments, Alba Organic Beauty Studio has kept women, and the environment, looking and feeling good.
And now, Alba Organic Beauty Studio is offering a service – Reiki – that will improve your mental health as well. Reiki is a simple way to relieve stress and stimulate a more positive mental health state, according to Eva Borho, a Licensed Massage Therapist, and Reiki Practitioner, who was recently added to the staff at Alba Organic Beauty Studio.
Borho says this stress relieving service boosts the flow of energy in the body, which in return, allows it to function in a holistic manner. Reiki was originated in 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist, Mikao Usui, and has since been making people feel more positive, and has promoted wellness.
Borho says she loves teaching others about Reiki, and how much it can help bring positivity to ones’ life. “It really helps to become the best version of yourself,” she says. “We all have blocks in our life, and we need to work through them and get rid of the negativity that clutters our minds.”
While there are more than 200 ways to perform and learn Reiki, Borho says her style is the most original. “It is very normal during a Reiki session for one to feel different emotions, and see different images,” she explains. “Whether it’s a flash of color, or a vivid picture.”
“Reiki increases energy levels and mental clarity,” Borho says. “It gives off a sense of balance, reduces stress, tension and anxiety.” She adds that many of her clients leave with the feeling of reduced physical tension and a decluttered mind. “Reiki’s main purpose is to make an individual more positive, mindful, and grounded,” says Borho. “And that’s what’s so great and unique about Reiki; it’s tailored to the individual.”
While there are many benefits of Reiki, Borho says the hardest thing about the service is getting the word out about what it is, and how it helps. “It does seem to come off a tad bit eccentric, but yoga and Reiki go hand-in-hand, and if you can do yoga, you can do Reiki.”
Alba offers one hour sessions for $75 with Borho, and for the whole month of February, you can book a Reiki session for $60.
