What is Reiki

What tends to be one of your first reactions when you get a headache or

you hit your elbow on a doorway or your stomach starts to ache?

What do you tend to do naturally when you see a friend who is upset

or you see your child fall down?

More often than not, you place your hands where it hurts;

you use your hands as a means to convey comfort.


There is power in touch. 

Reiki amplifies this innate healing that we all have.


Reiki (ray-key) is made up of two Japanese words.

Rei = spirit or soul     Ki = life force energy

So, Reiki means "soul energy." 

Benefits of Reiki

What's really amazing about Reiki, is that whomever experiences it seems to get the precise benefit that they need.

I've heard it called an "intelligent" healing modality, and the saying tends to be... 

Reiki Flows Where Reiki Needs to Go.

It's cheesy, but time and time again, I have found it to be true.

As such, each Reiki session is unique and no one tends to experience a Reiki session in the same way. 

You may get a Reiki session on Monday and feel super energized after it.

Then you may get another one on Friday and feel so relaxed that you want to sleep the rest of the night.

Reiki really does have an amazing way of providing your body exactly what it needs at that time. 

What is exciting is that Reiki is being researched and implemented into big name hospitals,

like UCLA Health... https://www.uclahealth.org/rehab/urban-zen-integrative-therapy and

 and John Hopkins... https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/integrative_medicine_digestive_center/services/reiki.html. 

History of Reiki

     Mikao Usui was a public servant and business man. However, a series of core-shaking,

life events left him wondering, Why are we here? What is our purpose? How do we find inner peace? 

At this time, Usui rededicated his life to the search for enlightenment. After years of spiritual study, like the Buddha,

Usui went to fast on Mount Kurama; about 20 days into his practice he was hit with a bolt of energy that knocked him unconscious. 

When he awoke, he felt deeply rested and an energy throughout his body that he had never experienced. 

Usui was so excited by his experience that he broke his fast to run down the mountain to tell others. (In Eastern tradition, you must have your experience verified by up to three people who had already reached enlightenment just to be sure you weren't going crazy).

While running, he stumbled and ripped his toenail off; instinctively, he placed his hands around the wound.

The pain and blood flow stopped immediately. This was March 1922- the birth of Reiki. 

I love the story of Reiki. I appreciate that the practice was born from a man who

had a full life, experienced hardships, and was left wondering, Is there more? 

If you are interested in learning more about the history of Reiki,

I highly suggest the very well researched book, This Is Reiki by Frank Arjava Petter.


Spoiler: Usui was not a Christian monk and Reiki has nothing to do with long lost healing practices in India.  

I specialize in Distance Reiki Healing 

Don't get me wrong, I love going into a spa and taking a nap on a massage table while getting Reiki. It's amazing; I highly recommend it. However, sometimes finding time to get to the spa, fighting the traffic, finding parking, and getting into the zen zone takes a lot of effort.

This is what first drew me to Distance Reiki- first as a practice that I took advantage of and

then as a healing modality that I wanted to offer to other individuals like myself.

I love the flexibility of Distance Reiki, and I love that

the results are just the same as a Reiki in-person session. 

Seriously- check out my reviews and hidden Yelp reviews because several of them are clients who experienced Distance Reiki.

Send me a text if you are only interested in an In-Person Reiki Session. 

Booking a Distance REIKI Session


When you book your Reiki appointment on-line, you will be given an opportunity to provide your name, email, phone number,

and tell me a little bit about yourself. Use this space to provide me with the information

you would like me to focus on during your Reiki session. 

I will call you 15 mintues before the session to discuss your areas of focus in more detail.

If you don't want me to call you (because you plan on being asleep, you don't want to talk to me, you'll be at work,

whatever the reason), please just let me know NOT TO CALL in the notes. 


I will do a scan of your body and focus on the areas we discussed and that you highlighted in your notes.

I will also spend extra time on any area that needs additional Reiki healing.

This includes balancing the seven chakras, which align with major glands and organs in the body. 



I will call (or email if you prefer) with feedback on your session.

This is will include any impressions from the healing or messages from your guides that I get during the healing.

I do not guarantee messages or other worldly guidance, because sometimes it really is all about the physical body healing. 

If you are interested in a combined Akashic Record Reading and Reiki Session, please book that specifically. 

Reiki for your fur babies

Reiki is a safe and loving healing modality that is perfect to share with your animal companions. Animals are very sensitive and can often pick up on the energy that surrounds them. Reiki can help them clear their energy and promote greater overall wellness. In addition, it can promote healing from illness and injury, aid in recovering from surgery, and lessen the side-effects from medications.

The Reiki session should be scheduled when your animal has time to rest and relax. (Don't worry; Reiki will work just the same if your companion is up running around). An emailed photo and a little bit of information about your animal is welcomed, but not required. Sitting with your animal and being present for the healing is encouraged. After the session, we can check-in over email about your animal’s energy, healing process, and the expected/ unexpected shifts that occur over the next few days.

I have three rescue dogs; I LOVE my furry family (the picture is of me with my pups and my foster pups). When I learned that Sophie, my corgi, beat cancer- it really was one of the most happiest days of my life. Though I know she did the hard work, I also know that Reiki aided her in her recovery.

Distance Reiki =

Healing Anywhere,Anytime

With Distance Reiki Healing (also known as an Absentee Treatment), 

you can receive the benefits of Reiki without stopping whatever you are doing;

you can be at home relaxed in your own bed or you can be in your car

on your way to an important meeting.

I recommend finding a quiet spot,

where you can get comfortable and not be interrupted. 

Your location doesn't matter.

Cool Fact 02

Distance Reiki Can


Has your fur baby had surgery, and you want to use Reiki to help aid in their recovery?

Have you ever had a migraine that lasted for days?

Would you like to experience Reiki, but don't want to be touched?


Distance Reiki can be sent to anyone (you, your friends, your loved ones, your pet)

as long as the individual receiving the Reiki

gives me permission to enter their energy field. 

Cool Fact 03

Distance Reiki Can

Be sent to any situation

Have you ever wished someone good luck on a really important job interview or exam?

Have you experienced an anxiety attack that has now left you worried

that you will experience another one?

Sending Distance Reiki to situations, challenges, or problems  (past, present, or future) 

can help transmute the negative or stressful energy associated with the event. 

Distance Reiki

can be sent to any place

Have you ever walked into a place and said,

"Wow, this place is nice; there's good energy here"?

Distance Reiki (with permission of the property owner) can even be sent to a home, business, or work to help lighten and clear dense or stagnant energy.


Note: If you feel there is a "dark" energy present, you may want to explore space clearing.

Feel free to message with questions.

Cool Fact 05

Distance Reiki

is based on hermetic laws and the princples of quantum physics

I get asked all the time, "Does Distance Reiki really work?" Yes. Yes, it does.

Remember back in science class when you learned everything was

made up of tiny atoms vibrating at a certain speed/ rate. 

This is the Law of Vibration, which states that everything in the Universe moves and vibrates at one speed or another. Nothing rests; everything has its own vibrational frequency - the table - the car - the rock - even our thoughts, and feelings.

It is all governed by The Law of Vibration.

Now let's introduce some sexy Quantum Physics. In quantum theory, there exists the Observer Effect in which energy responds to your attention. Those vibrating electrons are interacting with neutrons; they appear and disappear 

without regard to time or space when we observe it.  

Hence, your attention and thoughts (what you are observing) affect the quantum field. 


Now quantum entanglement teaches us that everything in the universe is interconnected by a quantum field. 

Scientists have conducted experiments using particles, that when interacting,

behave as if they are together as one.

Interestingly, once separated, they still behave as if they are together.

They remain "interconnected or entangled" as one by a field. 

(We would now get into quantum field theory, but frankly I wouldn't want to

bore you any more than I have already).


One last bit of information, the Hermetic Law of Correspondence states that every component of a system retains its own characteristics,

but also takes on the characteristics of the system as a whole.

It's like a halogram in which the larger image is composed of the total sum of its parts.

I begin the healing session using a proxy- I draw a picture of you to represent the "big you" (you can also send me a photo of yourself). I use the Reiki Distance symbol that Reiki practitioners are attuned to once they reach a certain level of mastery and then invoke the Law of Correspondence to transfer the healing from the picture/ drawing of you to you (it's larger representation) in real time.

As a Master Reiki Practitioner, I work in the quantum field with Universal Life Force Energy (Reiki).

And as we learned above, everything is energy, thoughts and intention affect the quantum field, and

everything in the quantum field is connected across all time, space, and dimension.

I use the Law of Correspondence to connect with energies across this quantum field.

And BOOM- this is how Distance Reiki Healing works.   

If that's too complicated, just think of Distance Reiki Healing like "Energy Wi-Fi."

I am tuning into your unique Wi-Fi signal to send you healing, not your neighbor across the hall.
