What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an over 5000 years old Japanese technique rediscovered by Mikao Usui in 1922. It is used for stress reduction and relaxation while also promoting healing. Reiki is a relatively simple yet effective technique that can be learned by anyone and is administered by either hands on, hands off (positioned above the body receiving treatment) or a combination of both. Rei means universal as in present everywhere. Ki means life energy and is non-physical energy that drives all living things. If your life energy is low or blocked, you are open to sickness. When your Ki flows freely, you are less likely to fall ill. Reiki is given using universal energy; the practitioner's energy is not used. You cannot receive too much Reiki and it does no harm.  Learn more about Reiki on the iarp.org website.

My clients have included infants, toddlers, adults, couples, and families living with childhood trauma and family dysfunction, domestic violence, anxiety and depression, grief and loss, low self-esteem, substance abuse, medical concerns, and everyday challenges. On occasion, I have had the pleasure of facilitating the reunion of owners and their pet companions.

Some of my innate abilities include aura reading, clairolfactance, clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, claircognizant, clairgustance, dowsing, dream analysis, energy medicine, faith healing prayers, medical intuition, mediumship, premonition, precognition, remote viewing, retrocognition, scrying, telekinesis and telepathy.

My passion for healthy social and emotional interactions is supported by a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology, with minors in Children’s Studies and Philosophy.  As a Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki Practitioner, I am delighted to offer clients my natural abilities along with this loving and compassionate energy healing system.  In addition, I am PREPARE/ENRICH certified to facilitate premarital and marital assessments under the framework of family systems.
