Reiki Healing 

Reiki is universal life force energy/chi which is transmitted from the healer’s hands to the client. This provides deep healing by unblocking energy and putting the body and the chakras back into balance. Reiki is an excellent tool for healing the mind, body, and soul. It is a powerful, yet very gentle, safe healing modality. It is can be used on children, adults, pets, the elderly, even those who are pregnant. It is a perfect aid for chronic health conditions, chronic pain, and of course, for deep relaxation. Reiki may be performed as a laying of the hands or hands-free above the client.

She currently offers very economical services in reiki healing at her home in St Thomas, US Virgin Islands.

Reflexology

Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. Reflexologists believe that these areas and reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them has a beneficial effect on the organs and person's general health. For example, reflexology holds that a specific spot in the arch of the foot corresponds to the bladder point. When a reflexology practitioner uses thumbs or fingers to apply appropriate pressure to this area, it affects bladder functioning. Chelcie S Porter studied reflexology in Thailand and received her certification in Chiang Mai in 2016. She currently offers very economical services in reflexology at her home in St Thomas, US Virgin Islands.

 

Meditation

Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. Buddhist meditation practices are techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. By engaging with a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energized states of mind. Such experiences can have a transformative effect and can lead to a new understanding of life. Chelcie studied meditation in Chiang Mai Thailand in 2015 and 2016. She now offers very economical mediation coaching sessions at her home in St Thomas US Virgin Islands.

Life coaches are more than just a counselor or consultant, they step you through the achievement process from the beginning to the end, from the planning stage all the way through the execution stages.
