Reflexology
Reflexology is a holistic healing method. Reflex areas in the hands and feet correspond to all of the organs, glands and parts of the body. Areas of imbalance, stress and tiredness can be deteced in the body through reflexology. It also assists the body in releasing toxins, thereby enabling the body to heal itself.


Reiki
The ancient art of “hands - on” healing.
Reiki is a body, mind, and spirit healing and balancing technique. It can reduce pain, illness and emotional trauma. Reiki is a powerful system of healing that utilizes specific techniques for restoring and balancing the natural life – force energy within the body. It is a holistic, natural, hands – on energy healing system that touches individuals on all levels: body, mind and spirit. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese word representing Universal Life Energy – the energy that is all around us. Reiki balances and strengthens the body’s energy, promoting its ability to heal itself.

Besides the obvious use in serious illness, Reiki promotes a natural healing process in many other areas. Problems like sports injuries, cuts, burns, internal diseases, emotional disorders and stress and related illnesses are helped. This treatment can be performed on pets and plants as well. Other benefits may include release of tension, enhancement of creativity, vitality and productivity, release of negative habits, and promoting positive wellness, love, compassion, peace, and serenity.

Deena LaVigne at River's Edge is a Certified Reflexologist and a Reiki Master who also knows about Interstitial Cystitis (IC) she knows that she will need to use Extremely Gentle Touch when working with us. I thought that it would be fun to go On-site to River's Edge to learn more about Reflexology & Reiki. She is going to give use information, and also demonstrate on each of us if we would like with gentle technique for us (do to our Medical Condition/Disease). She actually works with a lot of Pregnant & other medical condition clients all the time. If you don't feel comfortable having the techniques demonstrated on you then you can just come for the information. It is totally optional, and she would have you fill out a medical profile with information before hand so she has a better understanding on your individual bodies before working on you :0) We will all meet there in a Private room on the third floor which will be very close to a bathroom for us. When you arrive just go to receptionist and advise you are here for the "IC We Can Help Each Other" event with Deena LaVigne. I will bring water for everyone. If you have any further questions please just contact me
