My experience with Reiki has been a journey. For as long as I can remember, I’ve known someone living with chronic pain; be it a family member or a friend. Helping others has encompassed my foundation. Family values, healthcare, education and love of animals are grounded into my roots. My passion for animals and human rights are included on my path of civility and community care. “Breathe.” This metaphor is symbolic for the release of stress and importance of self care.
