Hello beautiful soul! Forest Rose Reiki has been born out of my own personal healing and awakening journey; learning self-awareness, self-love and self-care, healing from co-dependency, and trusting the intuitive calling in my soul.

Reiki is an energy healing technique that enhances relaxation, reduces stress, and increases communication within the body, resulting in the activation of the body’s natural healing response (immune system). The word Reiki is Japanese for “universal life force/energy”, and the practice of Reiki involves a Reiki practitioner placing their hands in the recipient’s energy field above their body, and providing an open channel through their hands for Reiki or universal life energy to flow to the recipient, bringing balance and harmony.

In my personal experience and understanding, Reiki or universal life energy is basically the healing and empowering force of unconditional love. In the words of Dr. Mikao Usui, the founder of Usui Reiki:

“Reiki is love, love is wholeness, wholeness is balance, balance is well being, well being is freedom from disease.”

I currently hold a Reiki Master certification through Lisa Powers, founder of the International Reiki Organization, in addition to an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach certification through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and a Life Coach certification through Kain Ramsey Strategic Life Coaching.

There are many things in life that can assist us in healing and growing, and I believe every individual has the wisdom they need for their own journey and innately (even if unconsciously) knows what they need, and when they need it, at every stage of the process. The trick is to quiet the mind enough to tune into that inner wisdom.

The reason I love Reiki as a healing modality is it provides a structured practice for holding space for healing within ourselves.

The greatest healing comes when we can observe our thoughts, feelings, and pain without judgement and extend ourselves unconditional love and acceptance.

I’m honored to hold space with you for healing!
