Reiki is a Japanese word for "universal life force energy". It dates back 2,500 years to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and was rediscovered by Dr. Usui, a Japanese scholar in the late 19th century.

Reiki is an holistic system of healing and works on the four main levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. It is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy to the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and help restore physical and emotional wellbeing.

A treatment will feel like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. It is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and can be used to complement all other medical or therapeutic techniques. When you receive Reiki healing, you lay fully-clothed on a treatment table while the Reiki practitioner places their hands lightly on different parts of your body.  It is not a belief system or linked to any religion or culture. It works as a pure energy similar to feelings, intent and thought. Reiki is not conditional upon your belief in the practice. It is not “faith healing” and you will see the benefits regardless of your belief. The healing power of Reiki and the benefits are not negated by the conscious mind.

While Reiki is incredibly healing, it does not replace western medicine. However, if used consistently, it may eliminate the need for future medical care and has been successful when used in conjunction to western medicine. It is recognized in many hospitals, surgical rooms, and gaining respect and recognition in the medical field.

I love doing Reiki on animals. They are very receptive to energy work.   Sessions are 15-20 minutes long, sometimes shorter depending on the size of the animal. Reiki is great for treating anxiety, fear, anger and speeding up recovery from surgery and illness.

Reiki is just as effective long distance. In fact, I prefer to have my personal Reiki in a distance session. 


During our set appointment time, we will have a brief conversation and you will lay down or sit comfortably while I  connect to your energy and begin the session. After the session, we will speak again to discuss the session. Some people like to Skype for the duration of the session to talk about anything that is coming up for them.
