Practitioner List & Modality Description:

Reflexology with Fatima Deen

Reflexology reduces stress, brings about relaxation & promotes balance and normalization of the body naturally. The benefits are numerous and stimulates well-being in all the body systems. It is one of the best ways I know to relax, revitalize & rejuvenate your body and mind.

I've been practicing reflexology for the past 4 years and totally love the balance and well being it brings my to clients. I feel very blessed to be able to team up with Sakinah and offer this service as an option to compliment her amazing work.

Embrace a new habit and see what it may do for you. I'm looking forward to relaxing you. "From my Heart to your Sole"

Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflex points on
the feet and hands which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of
pressure on particular areas of the hands or feet, reflexology serves to relax tension,
improve circulation and promote the natural function of the related area in the body.

Shamanic Reiki:
Shamanism is an ancient indigenous practice that combines energies of earth, animals,
plants, and spirit to bring about healing on a soul level. Reiki is an alternative healing
practice where the practitioner serves as a channel of universal life energy for the
individual with whom they’re working. Shamanic reiki blends these two ancient practices
into a spiritually-guided healing modality that allows individuals to reconnect to nature,
and spirit – and ultimately, to themselves. Each session is a unique blend of healing
specific to an individual’s needs, and is guided by their innate intelligence, or higher self,
activating one’s own natural healing process. The practitioner is not “the healer” per se,
but rather the healing facilitator — the individual is healing him/herself. Healing can
occur on any combination of a multitude of levels: spiritual, mental, physical and
emotional. People who experience this type of energy healing often report feeling more
energized, balanced, peaceful, clear, and less stressed. Some sleep better, find relief
from physical maladies, or experience spiritual awakenings. The effects may be
immediate, integrated over time, or both.
