Keeping you informed, encouraged, & inspired.
Happy July! How's everyone doing? Staying cool? Things are hot-hot-hot over here as the new Reiki Studio is built and almost ready for in-person sessions! Just finishing up the exterior landscaping and interior decorating this week and doors will open on Monday, July 12th! You may book your in-person session now for any date on or after 7/12/21. The new studio is located on my property in Palo Alto, with its own entrance completely seperate and private from my home. It has lots of natural light, a new pillow-top chaise lounge, plenty of pillows and blankets, and both heat and AC. I've already beamed Reiki to every inch of the space and it feels delightfully magical. I look forward to sharing this new sacred space with each of you :) If you'd like a sneak-peak of the new studio, you're invited to the Grand Opening Event on Sunday, July 11th! Stop by anytime between 2:00-5:00 PM for a tour, snacks, and prizes. This event is free and open to all--feel free to bring friends. Hope to see you all there!! With gratitude, Kristen

DID YOU KNOW?
Reiki cleanses the body of toxins and supports the immune system. During a Reiki session (and sometimes for hours and days afterwards) our bodies come out of the stress induced "fight or flight" mode and go into the repair (or self-healing) state of "rest and digest". By triggering this state our bodies begin to cleanse themselves of energies which don't serve our highest good. Thus allowing the body to protect itself from exhaustion, burnout, or immune system failure. The history of energy healing goes back many millennia and its techniques are practiced—in one form or another—all over the globe. From Hawaii to Japan, India to Tibet, Brazil to the Philippines, and in ancient Egypt and Greece, men and women have been using their hands to address all kinds of health conditions since the beginning of time.

In Your Own Words "This was my first time having a Reiki healing session done, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but was open to the process. Kristen immediately made me feel comfortable and safe, explaining the process and holding space for me. During the session, she had relaxing music playing and my only job was to relax, be open and receive. I felt various sensations throughout my body during our session, which I shared at the end. The amazing thing is that Kristen shared with me what she noticed and felt while working on me, and it completely matched up! Every thing she said was spot on about areas I need to pay attention to, or open up to more; things she healed and moved through me. I was left feeling so light, peaceful and filled with joy. I am beyond grateful for her work and recommend it to anyone who is open to the process!" ~Sarah C., Palo Alto, CA
