A little about my Reiki Journey!
I began my Reiki path in 2003, having heard about Reiki during a Psychic Protection class I was taking. I had been researching the possibility of doing "healing work" without using one's personal energies. During my first Reiki class in 2003, I KNEW this was an important step towards the rest of my life! I studied and practiced Reiki (on anyone and everyone who would let me!) until I became a Usui Reiki Master in 2009 and now I love teaching Reiki. Becoming a Reiki Master/Teacher has made me more aware of the power of the Universe and helped to further solidify my role in it! I believe Reiki is part of the path on our human journey towards better health and peace in the world! I feel I am blessed each time I provide Reiki energy to others!
What is Reiki? (Pronounced ray-key) It is a Japanese healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Major energy systems (or Chakras) of the body are given concentrated life-force energy, enhancing the body's inherent ability to heal itself. The Japanese word "Reiki" means "life force energy". "Rei" means Universal or present everywhere; "Ki" is the life force, which is also known as the nonphysical energy that gives life to all living things. This life force can restore energy and well-being and in many cases, relieve pain, illness and disease. Reiki is a deeply meditative and healing experience which is received fully clothed through a series of gentle hand placements. Tension, stress, and pain melt away under the warm and nurturing touch of the Practitioner. Reiki can be used to help everything and anything that needs healing; whether it's physical, emotional or spiritual. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement which can be used by anyone. It will never harm and can only create beneficial effects. Reiki is a non-invasive, completely benign healing art which is becoming more and more popular as western medicine continues to explore alternative methods of healing. Many believe Reiki is destined to play an important role in the coming years as an accepted and valued healing practice.

Reiki is not just something you do, but something you are! Love and Light to you!!
