What is Reiki?

Reiki is a light, hands-on (or above) technique that promotes relaxation, stress reduction and facilitates a healing environment.  The method starts at the head, moves to the neck and shoulder area, then to the abdomen, and finally to the feet.  You, the client, are always fully clothed, and lay comfortably on a treatment table.

I believe all beings are comprised of energy.  When our energy is free-flowing, we are happy and healthy.  When our energy slows, stagnates, or stops, we experience symptoms, for example difficulty making decisions, headaches, or low-self esteem.  Reiki identifies where the energy imbalances lie and helps restore the positive, free-flowing energy while reducing the stuck, negative energy.

Reiki is a safe and natural technique that can be used in partnership with traditional medicine to facilitate well-being.

Reiki is not a religion, nor is it affiliated with any religion.

Reiki contributes to living a life of wholeness by addressing issues of the body, mind and spirit.

Reiki FAQs


The first appointment begins with conversation and an intake form.  We will discuss what brings you in for a session and what’s currently happening in your life.  Please keep in mind that privacy and confidentiality are maintained at all times.  I subscribe to the IARP Code of Ethics posted in my interview room and adhere to them without exception.

I will ask about any sensitivities to smell or touch, and explain what you can expect from me during the Reiki session and answer any questions you may have.

A Reiki session is performed on a treatment table and you, the client, are always fully clothed.  Blankets and additional pillows are available to ensure your comfort.  During the session, clients are encouraged to relax and inform me if anything makes them uncomfortable, either physically or psychologically.  Please feel free to speak up during the session!  I prefer to talk to you before and after the session, usually not during, as I want you to relax as much as possible.

Post session, we will reconvene in the interview room.  I will provide a preliminary summary of my findings during the session.  If you want to share your experience as the client, it is always welcome.  Within a day or two, I will email you a detailed “Reiki Recap” with my observations and recommendations.

After your appointment, you should drink plenty of water, eat well, and spend some quiet time in solitude.  Most feel relaxed and peaceful after a session and want to hold onto those feelings as long as possible!

Subsequent appointments are quite similar:  conversation (reason for session, current life situation), Reiki session, post-session conversation (experience, findings).  A “Reiki Recap” is emailed after every session.


  • Overall it should be very peaceful, as talking is minimalized or eliminated, and relaxing music is played.
  • The mind tends to quiet down.
  • Yummy smells from candles and essential oils may be used to promote stress reduction and relaxation, however if you are sensitive to scent these can be eliminated and will not impact the session.
  • Some clients report seeing colors or images, or they feel the warmth of my hands, or experience tingling sensations.
  • It is OK to fall asleep! The benefits of the session occur asleep or awake.


  • Relaxed
  • Serene
  • Some say  they feel “lighter”
  • Some are sleepy while others are energized
  • Overall you should feel amazing!


Due the nature of Reiki and the universal energy it employs, Reiki sessions can be enjoyed even if the practitioner and client are not in the same room.   Through the use of Reiki symbols and proxies, I can bring the benefits of Reiki to anyone, anywhere.

I start by emailing the client an Intake Form to complete, asking them to be very specific as to why they are requesting a session—the physical, emotional or spiritual reasons, and to describe what is currently going on in their lives.  If desired or necessary, a phone conversation can be scheduled to discuss items further or ask questions.  Once I receive the completed form, we schedule the session.

I request that the client book a time where they can lie uninterrupted for about 20-30 minutes.  They can choose to have their own gentle music playing, or just enjoy the silence.  This is not necessary for the Reiki healing to happen, but who couldn’t use a little downtime?

The only thing different about my remote session is that a teddy bear is on the massage table, not the client!  I go through all the same room preparations, including music, lighting candles, and smudging with sage to clear the space.

  • I write the client’s name on a card, and if available I have a picture of them handy.
  • I go through a short ritual using the card, picture (if available) and Reiki distance healing symbols to prepare the teddy bear as a stand-in for the client.
  • Once completed, I go through all the same scanning and hand positions on the teddy bear as I would for a client.
  • I end the session by using additional Reiki symbols and clearing the teddy bear of any energy so it is ready for the next session.

Finally, I write up my “Reiki Recap” detailing my observations and recommendations and email it to the client.  I am always happy to schedule a phone call to discuss the Recap further if requested by the client.

Julie’s Story

Here is the short version, for a more detailed account go to Julie’s Journey.

I have always been an advocate for physical health.  I remember walking in my neighborhood in my high school years, joining a gym in my 20’s, and now in my 40’s I still go to the gym 5 days a week.  In my late 20’s I felt called to share my love of exercising, and I became a group fitness instructor.  It was so important to me that the students enjoyed what they were doing so they would be motivated to do it, and improve their health and longevity in the process.  For over ten years I poured my heart and soul into the health of others.

It wasn’t until about five years ago that I realized there was more to health than just my body.  I worked with a life coach who helped heal my mind and spirit and create tools for living a purposeful life.  I discovered a love of all things spiritual, and wanted to learn as much as possible.  I became a certified Yoga Instructor and Holistic Coach, learned to meditate, and took a few workshops in Shamanism.  I realized that in order to live a thriving, whole life, I needed to be balanced in body, mind and spirit.

After years of intensive coaching, studying, and learning, it was time to marry my love of caring for the body with healing the mind and spirit and bring it to the world.  I decided Reiki was the answer.

I enjoy educating people about Reiki and how it can help them naturally, simply and drug-free.  I love to see the effects of a session on my clients–they walk in stressed and tense, and walk out peaceful and relaxed.  Post-session, I email clients my observations and recommendations so they are empowered to take an active role in their healing.  I am always available to answer questions or perform additional sessions as part of their self-care regimen.

I would be honored to guide your healing on the journey to wholeness.
