Welcome to
Palo Alto Reiki

Your sacred space for self healing.

Hi! I'm Kristen and I'm so grateful you stopped by. While you're here, I invite you to take a moment to check in with yourself. If it's comfortable for you, close your eyes and take a few slow, deep breaths. Then tune into your body, mind, and emotions and notice how you feel. What comes up for you? Are you feeling like your best self? Or maybe you're feeling off? Or have aches and pains? Perhaps you're stressed, suffering, or otherwise struggling? Is something feeling heavy on your heart? Does your energy feel stuck or blocked? If any of this resonates, you're in the right place.


Reiki is a Japanese word meaning universal (rei) life force energy (ki). Receiving Reiki allows you to gently release whatever isn't serving you and restore your energy centers (chakras) to their natural state of balance and harmony. Thus enabling you to feel lighter, balanced, and relaxed.

Benefits of Reiki: promotes mental clarity, increases self love and confidence, balances emotions, strengthens natural immune system, calms worry and stress, processes grief and fear, promotes pain relief.

How Reiki Works

The best way to understand Reiki is to experience it! Reiki is a gentle, no-touch energy healing technique which treats the whole person--mind, body, and spirit. During a session you relax comfortably while I channel Reiki life force energy through my hands towards you, stimulating your natural ability to self-heal. I practice proximity Reiki, which means I beam Reiki from across the room, requiring no hands-on contact. There is nothing you need to do for Reiki to be effective. The energy automatically releases what isn't serving you, restoring your energy to optimal levels enabling deep relaxation, emotional balance, stress reduction, and pain relief. Reiki is not affiliated with any religion and can never cause harm. No previous experience needed nor expected.

Throughout my years of practice, I have held space for hundreds of women of all ages and backgrounds through difficult times in their lives such as grief and loss, anxiety and stress, career change, relationship turmoil, miscarriage, infertility, post partum depression, abuse, burnout, surgery prep, recovery and more. While Reiki cannot magically eliminate life's problems, it can relieve feelings of heaviness, exhaustion, and hopelessness. After a Reiki session, clients report feeling more relaxed, lighter, and better equipped to handle life's challenges.

I've also have the privilege of working with many children in my practice, ranging from newborns to teens. Reiki may help young children with sleep, colic, reflux, and emotional regulation. For older kids Reiki may help relieve anxiety, depression, frustration, lack of focus, low self-esteem, and insecurity. Reiki is effective for all ages and it's never too young to introduce energy healing as a wellness tool.

"Truly truly gifted! is what I have to say about Kristen. I've done decades of energy work and Kristen is the most powerful practitioner I've encountered. Her reading of what is occurring in my body is always spot on, and she has inspired profound shifts and healing in my body. The transformation I've experienced with her has eclipsed all of my work with therapists, doctors and other healers: my anxiety has dropped by 75%, I am sleeping well, my mind is calmer, I am triggered less often in my relationships and most importantly I have learned how to live from the reserve of self love within myself. Kristen is simply put a dynamo! I recommend her to everyone I know."
