Reiki master Gigi Benanti discovered her gift for hands-on healing at an early age. She has since turned that discovery into a lifelong vocation, helping others achieve wellness through the ancient Japanese treatment of Reiki. At her facility, Gigi incorporates other holistic remedies, such as essential oils and sound healing, into her routine. She also offers Reiki workshops, and encourages many clients to include yoga, or meditation, into their own programs to achieve optimal results.
