I came to find Reiki and aromatherapy out of a necessity to heal myself. In 2012 I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The world of western medicine had little to offer besides harsh medications and blame for having pain. No doctor wanted to investigate real alternatives. For several years thereafter I stumbled around trying to find something that would help, anything really, as I was desperate for relief. Along the way I discovered I had nutritional deficiencies which I was able to help with vitamin and herb supplementation. But still the pain was not gone. I had tried acupuncture, aromatherapy, meditation, yoga, breathing exercises, sound baths, and still nothing was completely taking my pain away. Then in March of 2017, in my continuing research, I found Diane Stein’s book 'Essential Reiki'. I was not sure how helpful it would be, but after reading the first chapter I felt like ‘I had come home.’ Something about being able to use your hands to direct healing energy where it was needed felt so right to me. I was hooked, and a few months later I became a Certified Reiki Practitioner.
In the intervening years since becoming a Certified Reiki Practitioner my spiritual development has expanded immensely. I discovered the magic of crystals, the beauty and functionality of essential oils, the gentle nurturing of sound healing, and the mystery and joy of tarot and oracle cards, After thirteen years in the high stress corporate world, I made the decision to leave and pursue a more beneficial career path helping others in their healing journeys. Please contact me for more information if you think we could be a match to work together. I look forward to hearing from you.
Peace and Blessings to You,
Reiki Master, Certified Card Reader
