I have been told by numerous people over the years (psychics, seers, even a shaman!) that I am a healer … but never really knew what to do with that until I needed to heal myself. My path led me to reiki a few years ago, and I have been truly amazed at how powerful it can be. Reiki is a universal life force – sometimes called “chi” or “prana” among other things – and it belongs to everyone! I decided to go through the training to become a Reiki Master so that I can bring deep relaxation and healing to anybody that wants it, and to raise the vibration on this Earth … we need it! I am also currently working towards my MS in Maharishi Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine, and hope to be able to offer even more lifestyle and wellness services soon! Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment. Make yourself a priority and come on in!
