Reiki is an energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to your body, improving the flow and balance of your energy to support healing.
Mikao Usui developed reiki in the early 1900s, deriving the term from the Japanese words rei, meaning “universal,” and ki, which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Now, reiki is used all over the world, including in hospitals and hospices, to complement other forms of health treatments.
The health benefits of reiki

       ̶̶  Peace.
       ̶̶  Relaxation.
       ̶̶  Security.
       ̶̶  Wellness.
How does reiki work?
Reiki practitioners act as a conduit between you and the source of the universal life force energy. The energy flows through the practitioner’s hands to you.
What happens during a reiki session?
Reiki treatments typically last about a hour. During a session, you’ll lie on a massage table fully clothed, as your reiki practitioner gently places their hands, palms down, on or just above your body in specific energy locations. They use a series of 12 to 15 different hand positions.
Reiki differs from other touch therapies in that there is no pressure or massage involved.
Labyrinth walks
Labyrinth walking is an ancient practice used by many different faiths for spiritual centering, contemplation, and prayer. Entering the serpentine path of a labyrinth, you walk slowly while quieting your mind and focusing on a spiritual question or prayer.
Walking a labyrinth is a form of active meditation which is unique from meditation while standing still, sitting, or lying down. Active meditation provides many benefits, and labyrinth walking is a unique spiritual experience. Learn more about labyrinth walking meditation and its potential benefits.
Sound Therapy
Sound Therapy uses sound, music and specialist instruments played in therapeutic ways, combined with deep self-reflection techniques to improve health and wellbeing.
Dhyana with Mauna
Pujya Sri Swamiji says "Maunam sakalam sadhanam". Maunam (silence) is itself God. Silence is God. Silence is worship. Silence is golden.  It is very important to practice silence in our life. 
With the instructions given by Pujya Sri Swamiji, Mauna is observed by practicants which helps lead to inner journey.
