Reiki is a Japanese healing practice that is used to heal physical and mental trauma, and to support mental clarity and spiritual well-being. In Japanese, the word "Rei" refers to a higher intelligence that permeates all living and nonliving entities and guides the inherent functioning of the universe. The word "Ki" refers to the nonphysical energy that flows through everything that is alive, including plants, animals, and human beings. The combination of these two words is what defines reiki as "spiritually guided universal life-force energy." Reiki is always for the highest possible good with no attachment to what that may look like.
I had already logged thousands of hours as a bodywork practitioner before I tiptoed into Reiki, which I thought was a lot of New Age hooey. I loved to laugh at it. But then one day I had an accident and tore open the bottom of my foot, and due to its position the open wound refused to close and heal. For ten days it was like this, bleeding and open. Then on the tenth day I showed up at bodywork school (with a cane) and one of my friends asked what was up with my foot. I told her and she took my foot in her hands without saying anything and soon I felt a fire boiling in my foot. "What the *&?! are you doing to my foot?" I said, searching for some visual clue and seeing nothing, which seemed impossible. "This is Reiki," she said. ....Then when I came home from school an hour later, there was a fine new seam of baby skin closing the wound all the way across.
So I became a Reiki Master. It was not easy, and is an ongoing journey of progressive growth. Really, making it through training and getting the label was just the beginning.
I find Oncological Reiki particularly rewarding. I remember one client came to me before a breast cancer operation, scared and in pain, and wrote me the loveliest note afterward saying that thanks to me, she faced the operation in peace, and that best of all, she had astonished her doctors: they had prescribed a huge course of pain-killing opioids for her after the operation and she said, she felt no pain, and so hadn't taken any of them.
I more often do Reiki for emotional or mental blocks. But it's fun to mention a couple more physical anecdotes. When new research finally came out supporting Reiki as an anti-inflammatory, I shrugged: it took them this long to notice? Anyway, once someone came to me with a jammed finger that was swollen the size of a banana. I Reiki'd it and within an hour it was back to finger-size. And most powerfully, once I did Reiki for a little boy with an upset tummy who wanted to throw up, and by the time I took my hands away, his nausea was gone.
I am a Reiki Master.
Sessions are done at my studio in Kreuzkölln.

Generally I find that the real healing work inside you happens after you leave the studio, in the days (or weeks or months) afterward.
