The Choku-Rei Center, John Welsh and Bret Lampman are Certified Massage Therapists and Holistic Health Practitioners. Their vision in establishing The Choku-Rei Center was to provide a true wellness center and community-based educational resource for the Central Valley.

The Center gets its name from the Reiki symbol “choku-rei”, which means “the Power of God, be here now”. The name is a reminder that healers do not cure; they assist others in their own healing. The Center’s mission statement reads, in part: We offer others, and ourselves, the means to reconnect with vitality, health and longevity through counseling, bodywork, education, community networking, realization of core values and connection to purpose.

The Center offers a holistic experience where healing on all levels can take place. Massage and bodywork focus on helping others to relieve chronic or daily discomforts, such as sciatica, low back pain, neck and shoulder issues, chronic fatigue, nervous tension, headaches and migraines, symptoms of carpal-tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis and other physical limitations. The Center also has specialists in shiatsu, cranial-sacral therapy and Aston-Patterning movement therapy.

In addition, The Center offers six-month and twelve-month holistic health counseling. When clients are ready to embrace lifestyle changes and move from a state of slow debilitation to health, wellness and joy, this service can be invaluable. Modern nutrition is a major obstacle to good health and wellness. Evidence of this is the skyrocketing incidence of heart disease, diabetes, compromised immunity and a host of other issues from depression and dementia to celiac disease, IBS and an alarming increase in cancer. As always, good information and assistance is the key to being well.

The Choku-Rei Center also offers classes in yoga, Tai Chi and Tibetan Rites. Prospective students of the energy healing system of Reiki can receive instruction, too. Monthly informational seminars are offered on subjects such as the benefits of organic produce, the dangers of aspartame and water fluoridation, self-treatment for trigger points and the nature of healing.

With our conscious minds we can reason and decide to change certain patterns and behavior, but without changing subconscious misconceptions and disempowering beliefs, deeply ingrained habit patterns can sabotage our efforts.
As we learn to access the deeper parts of our mind we can uncover and uproot disempowering beliefs in the subconscious, the seat of memories, emotions and habit patterns; and gain confidence and direction from the superconscious, a source of intuition, inner guidance and wisdom, for the attainment of positive change and transformation.
