Reiki and Therapeutic Yoga at The Ommani Center
Shelley Carpenter, a physical therapist, Reiki master and registered yoga teacher, will offer Reiki healing sessions and individual, therapeutic yoga sessions at the Ommani Center for Integrative Medicine, in Pewaukee, beginning November 5.
“As a practicing physical therapist for over 20 years, I am passionate about integrative medicine,” says Carpenter. “Incorporating my PT knowledge with the profound healing energy and wisdom of Reiki and yoga, I have been blessed to assist many on their healing journeys.”
According to Carpenter, Reiki’s healing benefits may include lower blood pressure and respiration rate, a profound relaxation response, a reduction in the need for pain medication, decreased severity of anxiety and depression and decreased recovery time after an injury or surgery. She points out that Reiki is already being used in conjunction with traditional medical techniques in many healthcare facilities.
