Feng Shui

Your report will include suggestions for harnessing the beneficial energies of your surrounding environment, optimizing the shape of your property, best use for each compass orientation, and best placement of elements inside the home. During a 1 ½ to 2-hour session I will walk your property and inspect your space to point out auspicious features and make recommendations for correcting unhealthy energies.



Reiki is composed of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. I can administer Reiki by gently laying hands, over clothing, on various areas of the body. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Essentially Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy.


Jin Shin Jyutsu

This centuries old healing art uses gentle touch over clothing to help an individual’s vital force to reroute itself through the body to bring balance and vitality. Self-care homework is a vital part of Jin Shin Jyutsu® and I will teach each client how to administer this art to assist their healing process. Destructive attitudes and habits, which can lead to dis-ease can be released and replaced by healthy ones.


Distance Healings

Usually the most challenging aspect of this kind of work is arranging a time that is best for both of us to be present and available for the session. The receiver must be able to choose a time and a space where they can be still, undisturbed and open to receiving benevolent energy and assistance. My fees for distance sessions are the same as for on site sessions, as I expend the same amount of time, energy, and preparation.
