Hi and welcome
Please feel free to browse and explore the many gifts and benefits of this beautiful Universal Life Force Energy.
I am a Usui Reiki Master. My journey with Reiki began in 2003 when I was suffering with a debilitating back condition that rendered simple everyday tasks very difficult and painful. It is through the gentle yet powerful Universal Life Force Energy of Reiki that I found relief. That is when my journey to recovery, wellness and wholeness began, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I believe that Reiki played a major role in my life. I will be forever grateful.
What is Reiki and how does it work?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress and relaxation that promotes healing. The practice of Reiki is centered on the unseen ”life force energy” that flows through all of us.
When this energy or ”chi” is balanced and free flowing it nourishes the organs, tissues and cells of the body as it flows through them supporting their vital functions. We feel vibrant, well, and have abundant energy and joy.
When the natural flow is blocked or disrupted (imagine a kink in a hose), due to stress and various other factors the organs and tissues are unable to function properly.
When our life force energy is low we are more vulnerable to illness and stress.
Reiki is a gentle hands on healing technique that helps the body in its self-healing process by gently supporting the release of blockages that have accumulated in our body and our energy field, thus enabling our body to restore balance and well-being.
Reiki treats the whole person including the body, mind, emotions, and the spirit.
What is a typical Reiki session like?
We begin by discussing which areas of healing you would like to focus on. You lie fully clothed on a massage table in a peaceful, supportive and nurturing environment. Soft, relaxing music plays in the background. Healing Energy is then directed by a gentle laying on of hands, or just over the body to specific areas to enable the release and clearing of blockages that disrupt the free flow of energy.

What does a Reiki session feel like?
What one experiences during a Reiki session varies somewhat from person to person and can vary from one time to another. However, feelings of deep relaxation and peace are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the energy encourages you to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings, a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some feel heat or cold or a tingling sensation and some drift off to sleep. At the end of the treatment, you feel refreshed and relaxed with a more positive and balanced outlook.
What conditions do you recommend Reiki for?
Reiki has aided virtually every known illness and injury including serious problems like: multiple sclerosis, heart disease, pain, inflammation, injury, stress, pre and post surgery, emotional issues (complementary to psychotherapy), when undergoing medical treatment (to relieve side effects and promote recovery), broken bones, headache, fatigue, insomnia, etc. There is no limit. It is always beneficial and works to improve the effectiveness of all other types of therapy.
Can Reiki do any harm?
No. You can never be harmed as the result of receiving a healing energy therapy session. It is always beneficial and works to improve the effectiveness of all other types of therapy.
Do you have to stop seeing a regular doctor or psychologist in order to receive Reiki?
No. All energy therapies work in conjunction with regular medical or psychological treatment. If you have a medical or psychological condition, it is recommended that you see a licensed health care professional in addition to receiving energy therapy treatments. Energy therapy works in harmony with all other forms of healing, including medication, surgery, psychological care or any other method of alternative care or medical treatment and will improve the results.
How often do clients come for a Reiki session?
The number of sessions required varies, as it depends upon the nature of the problems each person is experiencing. Some people require one or two sessions while others need several. You will be the best judge of your own requirements. A Reiki session generally lasts 1 hour.
What is the most important thing you have learned from practicing Reiki?
Overall Reiki has brought me a deep sense of peace, clarity, acceptance, forgiveness, kindness and love. Reiki has also brought me healing on a deeper physical, emotional, and spiritual level that has empowered me to move forward in life.
The Reiki ideals are something I strive to live by daily:
- Just for today, do not be angry
- Just for today, do not worry
- Just for today, be grateful
- Just for today, work diligently on yourself
- Just for today, be kind to others
