Charmaine, it’s been too long since we last connected. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with our community again. Some readers might have missed our prior conversations, so maybe you can kick things off for us with a quick intro?
I first experienced the healing power of energy, massage, yoga, and communicating with spirit and angels early in life. Encountering life changing opportunities of sharing massage with injured high school track and field mates at age 16, followed by feeling and seeing energy and spirit in various forms and colors at age 22, then discovering yoga that dissipated my own back pain at age 26, my path in body work and readings continues on a passionate and magical trajectory. I work closely with self-care practitioners and educators to continually increase my knowledge and awareness, for my clients as well as for my own personal practice.
There have been many shifts and changes in the marketplace given the pandemic. What shifts have been most impactful to your business since the beginning of 2020?
Shifting from in person to remote sessions has been most impactful for my business as it has created the opportunity for my clients and community to receive my distant energy work, spirit readings, and online yoga classes.
Are you teaching any classes?
I am teaching Reiki, distant Reiki, and private one on one yoga classes via Zoom.
How long have you been teaching and offering Reiki to community?
I have been teaching and offering Reiki for fifteen years. I was first introduced to Reiki while in massage school. I remember my professor talking about energy work and how it is being offered as an elective in school. My ears perked up and was immediately drawn to the word “energy”. I told myself at that moment that I was going to take Reiki training one day. Fast forward six years later…I was drawn to a weekend intensive which would certify me in all three levels. I walked away that weekend knowing that my life was never going to be the same. Reiki has changed my life in the best way. I’m so honored to connect to the vast energy that flows within us and around us. I have taught Reiki to hundreds of students thus far and to witness them honoring the natural energy gift within themselves is pure joy.
How do you serve community?
I serve community by offering supportive, nurturing services that decrease stress and discomfort in the body.
Can you talk to us about the benefits your clients get from receiving your services?
The benefits my clients receive from me is decrease of stress, discomfort, release of emotional blockages, increase range of motion, connection to self, and support for the body, mind, and spirit.
Thank you so much again for sharing all of this with us. Before we go, can you share with our readers how they can connect with you, learn more or show support?
