Simply put, a healer has the knowledge and capability to help you transcend.  As in any other discipline, coaching skills, spiritual growth and knowledge differ from healer to healer and are usually determined by their own life and occupational experiences.  

When you feel you are ready for a healing experience, you must ask within yourself if a particular healer is the best for you.  Trust your own inner guidance.  The Universe has a way of taking you to the doorstep of the healer who is right for you.  Also, choose someone you connect with. Your evolution can take you along many paths and many teachers.  But, above all, trust in yourself.

What is energy?

We talk about energy in many ways, perhaps referring to energy sources such as coal, gas, wind power or electricity, but the definition of energy is much broader than that.  Einstein, and later, quantum physicists have explained that at an atomic level everything that exists in the Universe is energy, vibrating and oscillating at different rates; that physical matter and energy are just two forms of the same thing.  So energy is all there is.

What is Reiki or Holistic Healing?

Each person’s energy body has its own distinctive energy signature – its energetic vibrational frequencies are unique, just as fingertips are unique to each individual.  As long as something is alive, it has life force circulating through it and surrounding it; when it dies, the life force departs.  If your life force is low, or if there is a restriction in its flow, you will be more vulnerable to illness.  When it is high and flowing freely, you are less likely to get sick.

What can be treated?

Energy healing is both powerful and gentle.  It has a long history of use; it has aided in virtually every known illness and injury, including serious problems like multiple sclerosis, heart disease, and cancer as well as skin problems, cuts, bruises, broken bones, headaches, colds, flu, sore throat, sunburn, fatigue and insomnia.  This type of holistic healing can also be used to treat non-physical ailments such as anxiety, stress, depression, mental and emotional disturbances.  It can equally be applied to other situational challenges like financial difficulties and personal and relationship problems.  

Energy Healing can be complementary.

Energy healing works in harmony with all other kinds of remedies.  A patient can continue to receive regular medical treatment along with Reiki healing.  In fact, Reiki improves the results of any treatment, acting to reduce negative side-effects such as those from chemotherapy, surgery and invasive procedures.  It shortens healing time, reduces or eliminates pain, lowers stress and helps to create optimism.  It has been scientifically noted that patients who receive Reiki leave the hospital earlier than those who do not.

Reiki can also be used in conjunction with psychotherapy to improve the healing of emotional trauma and other issues.  

It not only heals diseases but also amplifies abilities, balances the spirit, makes the body healthy and thus helps achieve happiness.  

Reiki can never do harm.

Reiki can never cause harm because Reiki is guided by the universal life force.  Reiki knows what a person needs and adjusts itself to create an effect that is appropriate.  It is a channeled healing.  

Is reiki a religion?

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion.  It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in to be able to use Reiki.  In fact, Reiki will work whether you believe it or not.

What is Chakra balancing?

Chakras are the energy centers located within your body.  There are seven major chakras I focus on during healing, which connect to various physical, emotional, mental and spiritual areas.  I will first assess the state of your chakras and balance them using a combination of intuitive and crystal healing. You’ll leave the session with all chakras in harmony, as well as some tips and suggestions to improve on any weak spots.

Which session is right for me?

For new clients, I recommend a 1 hour and 15-minute session of Holistic Healing, which allows for the possibility of multiple modalities in a single session based on your needs.  This session can be done at the Awaken Ananda healing space or via distance healing.

What if I’m not comfortable with touch?

No problem!  If you aren’t comfortable with touch, I will lightly hover my hands over your body.  You will still receive the full benefits of the healing session.


Just like with any other form of traditional and holistic therapy a normal detoxification/transformational process can and may occur immediately after your treatment that can last from 1 to 45 days.  Energy therapies transform energy held within the cellular biological structures, emotional energy, and thought forms held in the subtle bodies.  Usual symptoms such as fatigue, thirst, hunger, lucid dreaming, cold or flu-like symptoms, irritability, and life-affirming, joyful behaviors can result. However, if you believe your symptoms require medical attention, please contact your healthcare professional immediately.


The higher self is that part of you that connects your physical body to the Universe.  It is the wisest and purest part of you and travels with your soul through lifetimes.  Attaining knowledge of the Higher Self and its depths of inner wisdom is the goal of the soul.  The Higher Self talks to you through your conscience and your intuition.  

What is the Aura?

The human aura is a field of energy or light that completely surrounds the physical body on all sides.  It is three-dimensional and is made up of seven layers.

If all you’ve read so far is sparking
something in your intuition, trust that and get in touch.
