I am an energy healer, mindfulness coach and meditation guide. I have been practicing energy healing modalities for several years now. I am a Reiki Master/Teacher, an Access Consciousness Bars practitioner and an Access Facelift practitioner (non-surgical energy facelifts). I am a musician and currently focus my creative energy on creating meditation music, both guided and instrumental. I also love to create musical instruments, having built several guitars and percussion instruments.
My awakening to a new way of living began soon after a life-changing health event, I was propelled onto a spiritual journey. I began looking for ways to de-stress and relax, I needed to heal my body, mind and my spirit in any way that I could. In early life I experienced extreme hardship and physical and emotional pain. I found that starting a meditation practice helped ground me and made it easier to process the memories that kept surfacing. Before long I began creating and publishing meditations on the Insight Timer app. Around the same time I came into alignment with Reiki, and found an amazing teacher/mentor. Since then I have opened up to more healing modalities and will continue my curiosity and exploration. I have helped many people find that relaxation that I have experienced as well as contributed to pain reduction and healing of injury. It is my wish to do the same for you.
Areas of great interest and/or current learning include hypnotherapy, Jin Shin Jyutsu, Qi Gong and Hakomi Bodywork.
I was trained in the Tibetan Usui Reiki method which is probably the most traditional. There are many variations on Reiki, and none of them are wrong, they are all very effective. My personal style has evolved from the Tibetan Usui method to more of an intuitive healing method using the traditional symbols and healing attunements, as well as things I have picked up from other modalities. Whether you are on my table, or at a distance I follow my intuition and the divine guidance to do what your body, your spirit is asking for in the session.
I tend to "live" Reiki. Each day when I greet the world I call upon the source energy to infuse my day, my activities, my interactions with all of creation. I like to think of it as "setting my vibe". I am already an HSP (highly sensitive person) but when I am living "in Reiki" I am so much more aware of my surroundings and what is happening energetically. This all helps serve my intuition when I am working with you. I can pick up on subtleties that perhaps don't even seem apparent to you. Ultimately the Reiki goes where the Reiki is needed within you, spiritually and/or physically. I am the conduit that makes it possible, I can align your energy centers so that your spirit, your body, has what it needs to heal itself.
WHAT IS ENERGY HEALING?
Energy healing is a modality of healing that uses a body’s subtle energy systems to promote the body’s innate ability to heal itself by removing energy blockages that contribute to pain, disease, malfunction, etc. Energy healing is probably the oldest healing modality in the world, dating back thousands of years. Reiki is one of many energy healing modalities including acupuncture, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Jin Shin Jyutsu, Yoga, chiropractics and arguably even meditation. The underlying principles involve directing the flow of Ki (life force) energy through the body’s energy centers and the body as a whole. Ultimately the energy knows where to go (or perhaps the receiving body knows where to put it), but the practitioner can use intuition and focus and amplify the energy in places of need.
The benefits of Reiki are numerous. The most common experience of Reiki is that is one of the most relaxing, peaceful things you can experience. A Reiki session can calm your mind and your body, often to the point of falling asleep on the table. But clients will often report that they weren’t completely asleep because they were aware of everything going on in the room. It is likely they reached a very deep state of relaxation much like in meditation. Benefits also include reduction or elimination of pain, stress reduction, mental clarity, healing and even recovery from illness, etc. The important thing to note is that Reiki, and other energy healing arts, is not the “magic pill” that does the healing. The body itself always does the healing. This is true even for modern medical practices; your doctor does not heal you - your doctor creates conditions necessary for your body to heal itself.
Reiki, as with any healing modality, is never a replacement for any kind of health care. It is a beautiful compliment to your whole, holistic team that you create for yourself. My approach is to stay curious and explore everything. All modalities have their limits. Combining modalities usually achieves the best results.
