Joyful Heart  Reiki

Release, Relax, Unwind

Shamanic practices have been used for thousands of years throughout the world. In many cultures, the shaman is the healer, the medicine person who walks between the worlds and with the assistance of helping spirits, heals the ailments of the group.  In our culture, the shamanic practitioner uses the ability to work with guides in non-ordinary reality to bring about healing to an individual, a group, or the environment.

Who benefits from a shamanic session?  Anyone who has experienced trauma, suffered the loss of a special person or thing, feels lost or at a crossroad, or is searching for the answer to a question.

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
 you touch everything.

- Lao Tzu 


Reiki Treatment

Reiki is, quite simply, love.  It is a form of Japanese energy healing which is beneficial for relaxation, stress release, and pain relief.  While you are reclining fully clothed on a massage table, hands are gently placed on your body, and using safe touch, the practitioner becomes a "hollow bamboo" through which universal life force energy flows to you.  Reiki is gentle, beautiful, and magical ~ I invite you to experience it!

Who can benefit from reiki?   Anyone!  If you want to relieve stress, restore balance, are recovering from an injury or illness, are going through medical treatment, or simply want to blissfully relax, then reiki is for you!

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
 you touch everything.

- Lao Tzu 

About me

About Me

A registered nurse by trade, I was told many years ago by a fellow nurse that I should "be in energy healing." Fast forward a few years, and prompted by a move to San Francisco, I began to seek out opportunities to discover what this magical healing modality might be. I discovered Reiki and soon thereafter became immersed in a 16 month Shamanic training intensive ~ and these things have literally changed my life.

I currently hold certification in Usui Reiki levels 1, 2 and 3 (Master), as well as Karuna, Lightarian, Metatronia, and Medical Reiki. As a Shamanic Practitioner I have trained with Anna Dorian, Sandra Ingerman, and Sarah Dole, as well as receiving instruction from Francis Rico, Q'ero elders from Peru, and others. 

I have observed and have experienced the healing potential of both Reiki and Shamanism and would love to share that with you. Come experience the joy!
