It is my duty and responsibility to continue to unlearn, learn, grow, evolve, and nourish all aspects of myself and ensure I am serving myself first as I dive deep into the path of personal liberation.
Conscious Breathwork is:
Conscious Breathwork is a potent tool which utilizes breath to help move stagnant and stuck energies which have accumulated over the duration of life. Each and every action, word, thought and experience is energy. As we go through life, unprocessed events, traumas, and self-limiting beliefs become stored in our bodies and affect how we experience and react to the world. Our responses to these energies are from our body doing what it is meant to do, protect us. However, over time these energies and the patterns created from them begin to interfere with our well-being and view of ourselves. Breathwork allows us the opportunity to release the energies that are no longer serving us and shift the perspective we have with life events and our relationship to the world. Ultimately, it can create space for healing, widen our ability to sit with our emotions as well as numerous other emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual benefits.
Conscious Breathwork is done in a circular pattern, emphasizing the inhale, through the mouth. If accessible, one lays on their back with pillows or blankets to support head / back / legs. The journey is typically 45-60 minutes long and can go for longer. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing, come with an open mind, avoid a large meal about 3-4 hours prior and refrain from alcohol both before and after the session.

Reiki (霊気) is a powerful healing modality and can be translated as the universal energy and numinous atmosphere. Mikao Usui Sensei began giving Reiki attunements in Japan in the early 1900s and it has been long revered as a beautiful method of energy work and connection to the divine. To me, Reiki is the frequency and energy we call love.
Reiki helps open energy centers through utilization of the Universal Life Force Energy honored and known in different cultures as Chi, Ki, Prana, Mana, Manitou, Holy Spirit, etc. allowing stuck and stagnant energies to flow. The practitioner transmits this higher frequency of energy to their clients to assist them in their own healing process.
As Reiki generates relaxation, calm and ease it is often used in conjunction with and as a complement to Western healing practices such as chemotherapy and dialysis. It can also assist in relief from chronic conditions such as arthritis, supporting emotional healing from traumatic events and difficult transitions, and easing the anxiety, fears, and pain surrounding end of life transitions.
Participants simply lay or sit in a comfortable position as Reiki is being channeled by their practitioner. During an in-person session, hands hover above the receiver's body. If you work with me, I ask for you to come with an open-mind and an idea of what you are hoping receive / an intention for the session. I currently see only in-person clients for this service.
Contraindications to Reiki:
Any non-consenting parties
Any recently broken bones
