  • A compassionate practice that is delivered with integrity.

  • A wellness aid that has no contraindications.
  • A system of healing developed by Mikao Usui in 1922 in Japan, brought to the West in 1937 by Hawayo Takata.
  • Similar to healing practices used for thousands of years by indigineous peoples world-wide.
  • Not a touch modality that manipulates tissue.
  • Not a substitute for your health care professional.
  • Not tied to any particular religious doctrine.

  • Many Hospice programs also offer Reiki for patients, family and caregivers.

Reiki Drumming - an Option...

  • The drum has been widely used in ceremonial and healing practices in cultures around the world for thousands of years. The soft heartbeat sound and vibration from a hand drum during a Reiki session can enhance relaxation and underscore the healing benefits. It is an option that I offer in my Reiki practice.
