Enhancing well-being
 for humans and animals
 through energy work.

Your Subtitle text


I offer sessions of energy work to people and animals, and offer Reiki classes, with the intent to help others enhance their well-being, harmony, and enjoyment of life.  The modalities of energy work I offer in sessions are Reiki, Healing Touch for Animals(R), and Healing Touch. I am also an independent distributor of Young Living Essential Oils. These high quality therapeutic grade essential oils are a wonderful complement to the methods of energy work I offer to people and animals.


Our personal energy anatomy is comprised of various energy systems which surround and permeate our physical bodies at various levels. The complementary modalities of energy work I offer may help to restore balance to the recipient's energy systems, supporting the recipient on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. Energy work may help to promote the innate well-being and balance of mind, body, and spirit.

Reiki (pronounced "RAY-key") is a Japanese word which means "universal life force energy", the energy found in all things. Reiki and Healing Touch for Animals(R) are gentle methods of energy work which encourage relaxation and aid in stress reduction. 

The ancient art of Reiki was rediscovered by Mikao Usui of Japan in the early 1920s, and was brought to the United States by Hawayo Takata in the late 1930s. Reiki is an oral tradition which is passed from Reiki Master to student.

Reiki is offered in a variety of settings including medical centers, hospices, spas or other facilities which offer healing arts modalities. Reiki training is also offered as an integrative and complementary technique through major medical schools such as Brown, Harvard, Tufts, and Yale.

Reiki and Healing Touch for Animals(R)  can also support the gentle release of unwanted emotions and beliefs, and can help with behavior modification. For performance animals, energy work may support stress reduction during competition, encourage focus, and facilitate the process of working through training and performance challenges -- both for the animal and the handler.

During sessions, I may integrate Reiki, Healing Touch for Animals(R), Healing Touch, therapeutic grade essential oils, and/or tuning forks for sound and vibrational benefits when appropriate, based on the client's preference and needs.

Dr. Oz and Reiki: During a segment of his television program, Dr. Oz encouraged viewers to "Try Reiki" as his #1 doctor's order. He and his family are very familiar with Reiki -- his wife is a Reiki Master, and for decades Dr. Oz has invited alternative practitioners to complement patients' care in his medical practice. He refers to energy medicine as the medicine of the future, and thinks it "...may be ultimately the most important alternative medicine treatment of all."

Although I'm located in the Duluth, Minnesota area,
distant sessions are available for both people and animals.
