6 South County Spots to Try Reiki this Summer

Reboot body and soul with visits to businesses specializing in holistic techniques


Even as the pandemic begins to wane and vaccination rates rise, your body and soul may be in need of a well-deserved reboot after a long, taxing year (to say the least). Holistic health practices tend to the mind, body, and spirit with techniques cultivated over centuries, offering alternatives to Western medicine and treatments. These techniques, born across the globe, have found increasing popularity in the United States and right here in Rhode Island. Reiki is a Japanese energy therapy discovered in the 1800s, during which a practitioner lightly places their hands on or just above a patient’s body to initiate an energy transfer. “It’s allowing your body to really enter into more of a restful state,” says Reiki practitioner Elaine Dejoy, who owns Awaken Your Health Naturally in Narragansett. “And once your body can relax, with permission to totally check out, it can really heal.” Here is a list of some local practitioners offering reiki and other holistic treatments to ease tension and soothe your soul.
