My Story

My Personal experience with Reiki

I suffered from chronic pain. I had been in two car accidents within one year and ended up with herniated discs and an incredible amount of pain. This also lead to depression, anxiety and weight gain. My pain was managing my life and I needed to get some relief.

I had a wonderful Chiropractor, Physiotherapist and Massage Therapist who were very helpful in lessening my pain levels. I started Meditation which was also very helpful. Then I had heard about Reiki and asked my family doctor. She suggested I try it. She said they offer Reiki at Wellspring for cancer patients, and that it was noninvasive. I really had nothing to lose!

The following week I met a new neighbor Susan, who just so happened to be a Reiki Master. I had my first treatment with great results. With the addition of Reiki to my pain management I finally felt like I was truly managing my pain and my pain was not managing me.

I was so impressed with Reiki in 2008 that I decided to take the Level 1 Reiki course.  I  completed Level 2 Reiki later that year in 2008.  I attended Reiki workshops on a regular basis for my own personal healing. After two years of Reiki, I was able to function with very little pain.

The depression and anxiety are gone. I am so grateful and thankful for the gift of Reiki in my life, I decided to become a Practitioner in 2009 and Reiki Master in 2011, I studied for one year to become a Reiki Master. Now I offer this gift of Energy healing to you.
