What is Reiki?

Reiki is a safe, gentle, non-intrusive healing technique. It is a holistic system for balancing, aligning and harmonizing all aspects of the person - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

Reiki’s ability to create a deeply relaxed state aids in reducing stress and creates an energy support system which complements other healing practices to optimize the body's ability to access healing resources.

This key aspect of Reiki to induce a deeply relaxed state is not to be taken lightly.

The link between stress and illness has been the subject of many articles and studies. An excerpt from “The Link Between Stress and Illness” [Life Event, Stress and Illness, Mohd. Razali Salleh] explains how this works:

The link between stress and illness

The critical factor associated with stress is its chronic effect over time. Chronic stressors include daily hassles, frustration of traffic jams, work overload, financial difficulties, marital arguments or family problems. There are, of course, many more things that can cause stress, but these are the stressors commonly encountered in daily life. The pent-up anger we hold inside ourselves toward any of these situations, or the guilt and resentment we hold toward others and ourselves, all produce the same effects on the hypothalamus. Instead of discharging this stress, however, we hold it inside where its effects become cumulative.

Research shows that almost every system in the body can be influenced by chronic stress. When chronic stress goes unreleased, it suppresses the body’s immune system and ultimately manifests as illness. One can only wonder what would happen to the body if it remained in the fight-or-flight response. Fortunately, under normal circumstances, three minutes after a threatening situation is over and the real or imagined danger is removed, the fight-or-flight response subsides and the body relaxes and returns to its normal status. During this time heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, muscle tension, digestion, metabolism and the immune system all return to normal. If stress persists after the initial fight-or-flight reaction, the body’s reaction enters a second stage. During this stage, the activity if the sympathetic nervous system declines and adrenaline secretion is lessened, but corticosteroid secretion continues at above normal levels. Finally, if stress continues and the body is unable to cope, there is likely to be breakdown of bodily resources.

So now that we have looked at how Reiki supports wellness, let’s look at Synergistic Resonance. What the heck is it and why should you care?


SR is an intuitive "story" based practice which I have developed to optimize clearing energetic blockages on all levels. This energy therapy modality integrates my own unique intuitive guidance – accessing symbols, patterns and story from the Divine Source & nature – to facilitate optimal energetic balance throughout each session.

The throat chakra is the gateway to the upper chakras; this energy center is all about the way we express ourselves through the spoken or written word and as such, creates a gateway to our emotions. When emotions remain stuck in the energetic system due to trauma or repressing painful experiences, this creates an impediment to the healthy energetic flow, affecting our well being on many levels.


  • the intensification and enriching of a musical tone by supplementary vibration;
  • a quality of richness or variety; and
  • a quality of evoking an emotional response

The resonance of the story or narrative infused in visualizations, intuitive messages and spoken/written words, further facilitate access to the subconscious memory of blocked emotions and traumas - helping to release them in a powerful yet gentle and loving framework - Reiki energy.


Reiki+SR will appeal to those who are on the path to actively seek/strengthen their own language of spiritual connection since it provides a framework of reference and support. The resonance of intuitive messages creates a synergy with the other components of the session, supporting the client in developing deep roots of worthiness and belonging.

We remember who we truly are, and understand that we are not our circumstances but instead pure, loving energy - infinitely supported and loved. Soul level truths are revealed to assist in creating our own unshakable connection to our higher self and the divine source itself.

This work is deeply personal and requires a willingness on behalf of the client to explore, commit and value soul work. I am the Gatekeeper, able to hold the space for lasting change but ultimately, it is up to each soul to commit to their own unique path.

Those who receive the most lasting results are deeply committed to the work required; they value the process and are willing to give and thus receive.

There are many paths but only one true destination - inner peace, love, purpose and authentic power.
