What is Reiki?
“Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.”
“A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. A session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness.” International Association of Reiki Professionals

I graduated from University of California, San Diego with a medical degree in 2003. Medicine was an easy choice for me because I had lost both of my parents to illnesses when I was a child. I was orphaned at age 14. My fear and grief challenged me, not only to survive, but to find meaning in life. I wanted to help others.
After medical school, I completed residency in Pediatrics and began practicing in the Emergency Department. This job was very fulfilling and I was helping children who were injured or sick. I was finally able to help others, but still, I felt something was missing. I developed severe anxiety and I began to meditate to find calm. During one meditation, I had a spiritual awakening that I can only describe as a beam of pure love pouring into me. This was the start of my journey towards spirituality and energy healing.
When I studied reiki, I did not know what to expect and I wasn’t sure if I believed in it. After practicing, I not only felt the heat going through my hands, I felt the vibration changes occuring in my whole body. Others have described this as going to a higher spiritual level and an opening up of chakras, ‘kundalini rising’. A shift occurred in my energy, I began to have more intuition and clarity and peacefulness and less physical pain.
Just as I felt called to practice medicine when I was a child, I feel called to practice Reiki and energy healing, to help give to others what I have experienced.
