I became a Reiki Practitioner for one reason. To be able to heal myself and others.

It all started a little over a year ago, while I was sitting down meditating for self healing something purple caught my eye. That something was a Reiki energy healing candle. Little did I know that from that day forward my life would be forever changed. I lit the candle and followed some very easy instructions and within the next few moments I could feel a difference my heart was healing as I let go of old wounds and allowed them to heal. Immediately after that I began researching Reiki energy. I had to find out what it was and how it worked. I found out that Reiki energy is the same life force energy that sustains all living things. I also found out that there was a way to learn how to channel this energy and that not only could it be used to heal others you could use it to heal yourself as well. I began looking for a Reiki Master because that is how you obtain the ability to channel the Reiki energy. The energy is passed form Master to student. I found a Reiki Master that just so happened to be living down the street from me. I knew this was a clear sign that Reiki was for me. So, I began my training. Now I myself am a Reiki Master. Reiki has changed my life in ways that I can’t even begin to describe. I feel happier and am more balanced on a daily basis.

The process

During a Reiki healing session the energy passes from the hands of the Practitioner into the patient. The Reiki energy relaxes the body and fills it with life force energy, allowing the body to heal it’s self, by removing energy blockages that are preventing the body from heal it’s self as was originally intended.

A session

A typical session last anywhere form forty-five minutes to an hour and a half. The time will vary depending on the client’s needs. During treatment the Practitioner uses various hand placements to administer the life force energy to all parts of the body. If there are specific problem areas more time will be spent working on that area of the body as needed.


Reiki has many benefits. It assists in healing mind, body, and soul. When mind, body, and soul are working in harmony your life with reflex that harmony. Treatments are on an as needed basis. Everyone is different, therefore there is no set time frame.
