Gentle Hart Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.” It is administered by “laying on hands” or holding them a few inches above the body.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well being.

I am a certified Karuna Holy Fire Reiki Master in the Usui lineage of the International Center for Reiki Training.   Reiki has transformed my life on so many levels and I love sharing its gift. As I have delved more deeply into my practice Reiki has become a part of my daily life and permeates everything that I do.

The Hart or deer is my spirit animal and guides me in my life. Deer medicine teaches us to use the power of gentleness to touch the hearts and minds of wounded beings who are trying to keep us at bay. Deer has the gentleness of spirit that heals all wounds. Deer does not push to get others to change, Deer loves them as they are. Deer folks apply gentleness to a situation and become like the summer breeze: warm and caring.

Please feel to free to contact me if you have questions about Reiki or would like to share an experience. I also love hearing thoughts and stories from other practitioners.

 I do sessions in person and I also offer distant Reiki healing sessions. Sessions usually last about one hour. Distant healing sessions can be arranged at a mutually beneficial time and I follow up with a written description of my experience working with your energy. I conduct distant sessions as though you are physically present. I’ve found them to be as effective as in person sessions. My long distance clients appreciate that they can relax in their own home while I work with them.

 I also teach Reiki in person and I am a member of the International Center for Reiki Training.
