Reiki Practitioner

"What brought me to Reiki is my curiosity. My interest in alternative healing practices. My first experience was so profoundly spiritual that it led me to where I am today. [I enjoy] helping to support and guide others on their path to wellness. It’s beautiful to be witness to someone’s growth and insight.
