Reiki is an energy healing modality originating in the early 20th century in Japan connecting with the universal life force energy that is present in all of us and all living things. With Reiki, we learn to connect with, channel and harmonize energy to support healing of the body, mind and spirit.

Reiki uses a combination of hands-off and hands-on healing - sending energy & intention through the palms of the hands - covering the 7 main Chakras (energy centers) of the body as a basis. When our chakras are balanced and open, they promote holistic health, vitality and well-being. When they are out of balance (over- or under- active), closed or blocked, they can cause dis-comfort & dis-ease at the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level.

Intention is EVERYTHING! When you work with Reiki, you bring a clear and powerful intention that is directed to whatever healing is needed for the highest and greatest good.


I first learned about Reiki while doing my yoga teacher training in Bali in November 2018. I had never heard of Reiki or energy healing more generally and was curious when I heard the amazing stories of my fellow yogis who had Reiki sessions and came back totally refreshed, grounded and clear.

It was there that I met my Reiki Master - Joanna Lewins - and started our beautiful journey together. I just knew instantly that she was supposed to be my teacher and that Reiki was a part of my path, passion and mission in life. I completed the Level I training with her in Bali, learning about the Chakra system; the basic hand-positions for self-healing and how to protect, cleanse and ground my energy.
