Mebane’s first Reiki Attunement Center will be open and on display Saturday during the annual Autumn Fest, as Mystic Grove Oils Wellness Center, located at 106 S. Fourth Street, Suite G, will be celebrating its Grand Opening.
The husband and wife team of Michael and Irina Teixeira are bringing Reiki, a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing, to Mebane for the very first time.
“It is difficult to put that excitement into words,” Michael Teixeira said in regards to Mystic Grove’s Grand Opening. “If I were to have to describe it I could sum it up in one word - bliss. The knowing that one is doing what one was born to do. That knowing has been a lifelong discovery, not easily achieved. In fact it has been more than 30 years in the making. There is nothing more gratifying than seeing a client improve mentally, physically and spiritually. That fuels our excitement - knowing we are here to empower people to take back control of their well-being.”
For the Teixeiras, who have lived in Mebane for more than three decades, this is the ideal time to open a new wellness center for the local community.
“I moved to Mebane 32 years ago to attend what was then Elon College,” Teixeira said. “The town has a good aura or vibe, if you will. Over the years, I have seen Mebane grow and become a more progressive town. It's charm is in its people. I believe the time has come for Reiki to be a part of what this town has to offer.”
Reiki, which was developed in Japan in 1922 and brought to America in the late 1930s, is growing in international popularity. Hundreds of hospitals throughout the United States offer Reiki, which research studies have indicated can help improve patient sleep, reduce common ailments such as stress, headaches, joint pain and nausea, while also assisting pregnant women with anxiety reduction and reducing common pregnancy issues such as morning sickness.
“Reiki is an old Japanese energy healing art form,” Teixeira explained. “All disease begins in the body's energy field. Over time, it will manifest as physical ailments. Reiki restores balance to the energy body, which in turn brings homeostasis to the physical body. People can expect to find a peaceful, caring and loving environment where healing can begin, and leave in a better state of mind.”
In a Reiki session, participants lie fully-clothed on a massage table or on a special mat. The Reiki practitioner places their hands in various areas of the body, including the shoulders, head, and chest, in order to bring deep relaxation and stress reduction. Reiki techniques are regarded for allowing muscles to relax and increasing blood flow in distressed areas, thereby speeding up the healing process.
Reiki has also been credited with assisting patients with fear and worry reduction, improvements in attitude, grief management, and release of anger, while also aiding other medical issues by increasing appetite and reducing the side effects of cancer treatments such as chemotherapy.
According to a 2007 survey, approximately 1.2 million adults and more than 160,000 children across the United States have received one or more Reiki sessions.
“The need is here and now,” Teixeira said. “I have been welcomed with open arms. People I speak with are excited that such a place is about to open. We live in a hectic society. This will provide a way to release the tension and anxiety we all feel.”
Mystic Grove Oils Wellness Center is dedicated to providing a holistic approach to empower people to take back control of their well-being. They will be providing Crystal Energy Healing, Ancestral Clearing, Ionic Foot Bath Detox, Aroma Touch and Symphony Of The Cells Essential Oil Techniques.
“We look forward to serving the community and bringing harmony to everyone. Namaste,” Teixeira said.
