Rayna Benson LAc, CMT, RYT 200, level 4 reiki master teacher.
Rayna Benson is a licensed acupuncturist, certified massage therapist and yoga instructor with extensive training and a developed sensitivity to work with subtle energy.
Rayna began her path as a healer over 10 years ago. In that time, it’s become a lifestyle and passion. With a Masters degree from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, training from The School of Healing Arts, Maui Academy of Healing Arts, plus many individually completed certificates and credentials through various programs and mentors, she’s developed a well rounded and eclectic treatment approach. Rayna provides gentle, intuitive and restorative acupuncture, energy healing and bodywork. Her sensitivity and openness bring presence and compassion to every treatment.
When she’s not working with clients to provide relaxation and wellness through luxurious and nurturing treatments, Rayna can be found teaching or practicing yoga and meditation. She’s inspired by further study of healing modalities as well as creating opportunities for people to learn to heal themselves and others.
Even when I’m not performing acupuncture, I’m considering the body through that lens. Each body has a story and a message. As therapists, we are allowed the creative opportunity to communicate with the body in the specific way that will facilitate the deepest healing for our patients.
“In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy.” Albert Szent-Gyogyi, 1960 Nobel Laureate in Medicine

Gua Sha is a technique commonly used in Asia by practitioners of Traditional Medicine. During Gua Sha, the skin is pressured in strokes by a round-edged instrument. As with cupping, it is an excellent therapy for relieving muscle tension and resolving upper respiratory distress, increasing circulation and stimulating healing of the tissues.
There are many types of energy healing and each person responds differently to the various frequencies. Your energy healing session will be customized based on how you present and what your goals are. Most sessions include reiki, blu-e, zen touch
Qi Cupping is widely used throughout the world as a way of removing or circulating areas of congestion and stagnation. In Chi Cupping, a partial vacuum is created with a handheld device and glass jars, which are then applied to the skin, drawing up the underlying tissues. In biomedical terms, it moves blood and waste congesting in the surface tissues and muscles, promoting normal circulation and increased metabolic processes. By resolving local areas of congestion, Chi Cupping is valuable in the treatment of pain, acute infectious illnesses, upper respiratory dysfunction, digestive issues, and numerous other chronic conditions.
