Eden Katrowitz - Owner, Reiki Master, Jewelry Crafter, Cook
Eden discovered her love for the holistic health approach in the early 90s and the flame has never faded. She has completed over 1000 hours of training in massage therapy alone, graduating from The Academy of Therapeutic Massage & Healing Arts, in Vineland, NJ .
Eden became Reiki Master in the Usui Tradition in 2009 then continued her studies to become a Karuna Reiki® master. She understands each client is unique and customizes their session through her skilled and intuitive touch. This helps her clients return their physical, emotional and spiritual bodies back to a more balanced state. That is the essence of her goals for herself as well as for her clients well-being.
Reiki can be used to energetically enhance (also known as charging), and she does so with crystals and jewelry she personally selects and crafts.
Eden is also our resident cook. She makes delicious varieties of gourmet food and snacks for every event we have, made in her home with love to accommodate different diets and lifestyles.
Eden's core belief is to find love and joy in the every day. Never lose touch with the inner child that still enjoys watching cartoons and eating breakfast for dinner. Keeping a good sense of humor is vital, otherwise we can get caught up in the details of the day to day and lose sight of what really makes us happy and what is "real".

Reiki ~ The peaceful way to health and relaxation.
What is Reiki?
The awareness that an unseen energy flows through all living things and directly affects the quality of a person’s health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. This life energy goes by many names: qi in China, ki in Japan, and prana in India. The ancient Hawaiians called it ti or ki. It has also been called orgone energy and élan vital, and science refers to it as biofield energy. When your life energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress; you may not sleep well, and you’re more susceptible to illness. When your life energy is strong, you feel strong, can more easily deal with stress, and are less likely to get sick. Reiki is a technique that increases a person’s supply of life energy
Information About Reiki
What is a Session Like?
Reiki is administered through the hands of a Reiki practitioner with the client lying fully clothed on a massage table. A session usually lasts between 45 minutes to an hour and a half and shorter sessions are also possible.The Reiki practitioner places his or her hands at locations around the head and shoulders, the abdomen and on the legs and feet. Tissue is not manipulated. The practitioner’s hands are simply held at each location, lightly touching or slightly away from the body. Reiki energy flows from the practitioner’s hands and into the client’s body and energy field. A Reiki session feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that surrounds and fills the client and includes feelings of relaxation, peace and well-being that also promote healing.
Reiki energy allows muscles to relax and increases blood flow to treated areas, which in turn quickens the healing process. Practitioners and clients report help with stress, headaches, insomnia, upset stomach, sprains and other minor conditions. Occasionally, miraculous results are reported. Reiki also promotes psychological healing, including release of anger, fear, worry, sad- ness and other unhealthy feelings, and replaces them with self-worth, confidence and tranquility.
Reiki was developed in Japan in 1922 by Mikao Usui and was brought to the West in 1937 by Hawayo Takata. The popularity of Reiki has grown exponentially in the past few decades. A survey conducted in 2007 indi- cates that in the previous year, 1.2 million adults and 161,000 children in the U.S. received one or more Reiki sessions.
