Benefits of Reiki
Reiki promotes a state of total relaxation and is an extremely pleasant, holistic method of energy healing. Reiki helps to release energy blockages and increase energy flow in the body. Reiki is gentle and non-invasive. The energy flows in the quantities necessary for the recipient and is always positive. It only brings to light what the recipient can handle, never more.
Works together with conventional medicine to help heal or reduce the symptoms and side effects of all manner of ills including cancer, chemotherapy, radiation, Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses, digestive disorders, back and neck pain, headaches, mental and emotional distress, depression, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, etc.
Releases old traumas from the “cellular memory”, assists in mental/emotional healing, improves mind/body awareness and provides a way to remain calm, centered, and clear thinking, even during times of stress.
Decreases/eliminates pain, promotes the body’s natural healing ability, boosts the immune system and improves healing time.

“Deana and JoAnn, What a great Spirit Guides Workshop this afternoon. From the guided meditations to the attunement finale - wow! You are a powerful duo! Thanks for helping us all rise higher and get the help we need along the way.” -C.H., Teacher
“JoAnn, I’ve been thinking of you and want to thank you for your courage, compassion and integrity as a practitioner. The healing support and information you shared with me during our sessions began what has been a deep dive into awakening and now ever expanding awareness of knowing Who I Really Am. Your caution for protection and discernment in working with other practitioners and what situations and settings may not be best for me was invaluable information that I was not always able to integrate at the time. However, in recent weeks in particular, it has come to light how imperative these principles really are and I am now on a Peaceful Warrior path to becoming a truly sovereign being. I am forever grateful to have met you and for the path it set me on there after.”

“At JoAnn’s Reiki Share in March 2017, JoAnn and the Reiki Share members ‘unlocked’ my back! For the last several years, the soft tissue surrounding the thoracic vertebrae in the middle of my back was ‘locked up’, causing me pain and a lack of mobility in my entire back, shoulders and neck. I had been going to a chiropractor for over a year, and even though my chiropractor is excellent, she was unable to unlock the middle of my back. JoAnn recognized that while the problem with my back was manifesting on the physical level, the root of the problem was on the mental level. So she used Reiki, along with an Integrated Energy Therapy® technique, to pull the locked energy out of my back. Voila! My back has been unlocked ever since, and my chiropractor is amazed at how much better my back is. All of the kudos for this miraculous result go to JoAnn and her Reiki Share. Thanks, JoAnn!”
“I have been struggling with chronic back issues due to an injury I suffered over 2 years ago. I have received lots of physical therapy, but nothing made me feel as realigned as my session with JoAnn. After her working on my lower back I felt pain-free and energized, more than any time since my injury. Thank you dear, so much!!”
