​I have been fascinated with animals and nature all my life so the concept of 'universal energy' made perfect sense to me. We have always known that walking in the woods makes us feel better, right? but did you know that a cats purr at a frequency that corresponds with healing in humans? 

Since I came to reiki in 2009 my fascination continues as my life has evolved, my practice has deepened and I am calmer, healthier and more centered. I am more discerning and able to listen to my intuition giving me space for considered response instead of impulsive reaction. I have learned that self care also means better care for those we love. If we can be our reiki selves we shine a light for others. I continue to delight in all the natural world has to offer, and enjoy discovering more about the healing properties of animals, plants and trees.

My daily meditations show me that when you  truly ‘let go’ with an open heart and mind the energy will flow and settle wherever it is needed - that’s when the magic happens!

 I work with doTerra Essential Oils during treatment and meditations for enhanced aromatherapy  benefits, and offer oHHo CBD products to aid natural therapeutic healing.

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on Earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child - our own two eyes. All is a miracle.
