Reiki is an ancient form of hands on healing through which universal healing energy passes through the practitioner to the person. The energy has intelligence and flows to the areas of the body in need of rebalancing the mind, body and emotions. Many people experience such deep relaxation that they fall asleep. It is suggested to receive treatments in a series of 3, as the energy begins in deep and then with each treatment, the energy rises up into our awareness where we can notice more shifts occurring. After receiving treatments, you may decide you would like to learn about and be attuned to Reiki yourself.
Gretchen was attuned to Usui Reiki energy in 2000 by Master Bernadette Doran after receiving months of Reiki healing from her. Reiki helped her to recover from a healing crisis brought on by the stress from teacher burnout and the passing of her father. She was attuned to Level 2 the next year and then continued to study to reach Master Level in 2002 under Elizabeth DeVries.
