Reiki  is defined as (霊気, /ˈreɪkiː/) a form of alternative medicine called energy healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing.

Tarot reading is a mystical and powerful art that has been practiced for thousands of years to tell fortunes, provide psychic readings, and to peer into the past, present, and future. A Tarot reading can help you release old emotional and physical wounds and help you embrace the present and move forward into your future. White Chrystal Messenger of Peace uses a combination of the Lenormand Deck, an inherited deck and a Native American Shaman deck.
