What is Reiki?
Reiki is a natural, simple energy balancing and healing technique. The meaning of the word Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is Universal Life Energy. “Life Energy” is always flowing around and within us, along pathways called Chakras or Meridians. Sometimes our energy becomes disrupted or blocked due to stress, other emotional issues and/or physical conditions. As an Usui Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher, I will assist you in mending the disruptions or clearing the blockages of the Life Energy; resulting in healing on a physical, mental, emotional and/or spiritual level.
Treatment is completely painless and discrete. I use a technique without direct touch; placing my hands over specific areas of the body. Clients remain fully clothed and can choose from a seated or laying down position. Experiences vary from person to person; but clients have described feeling calm, relaxed, refreshed, revitalized and recharged after Reiki treatments.

Women’s Walk and Talk in the Woods: Women’s Walk and Talk in the Woods is back! Looking forward for time for us to lace up our shoes (bring a mask) and hit one of the area forest preserves for our session. This will be an individual session for counseling; but we will get the mind, body and spirit moving. Elburn Forest Preserve, Hickory Knolls, Peck Farm Park, and Red Oak Nature Center are great options. Even though I think a walk and talk in the woods is therapeutic, your insurance company sadly does not agree—so, these sessions will be self-pay $100.
Group services: Believe me, there is power in the group. Support, understanding, gentle feedback, accountability, humor, and fresh ideas. Another bonus? They won’t dent your pocketbook like individual sessions. Group counseling will be limited to 4-6 attendees, reducing the feeling of being too overwhelmed or lost in the shuffle. Group offerings will be update as events are scheduled:
Jump Starting Change: This program is a perfect blend of support and guidance; helping you to create positive and lasting change in your life. I have revamped the program and it is available on MemberVault. 3 months of support and course work to help you achieve your goals.
Please note: Reiki is not a substitute for medical care or medication. It does support and complement other medical and natural healing techniques or other types of treatment; such as talk therapy to address emotional issues or physician’s recommendations to address the root cause of physical issues. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice.
