I didn’t discover bodywork/energy healing/energy medicine until 2019. I started by having sessions with a Body Talk practitioner, who uses subtle neuromuscular biofeedback (also referred to as muscle testing). All the while, I kept hearing about Reiki. It seemed to be everywhere; online, in random conversations, and among friends. I decided to reach out to a friend who was a practitioner to learn more and researched the various lineages (as there are several) and landed on Usui Reiki.
I found a practitioner who is one of about a dozen in the world who is licensed and trained in person for my Usui Reiki I & II certification. Six months later, I went on to train with that same practitioner for my Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master. Six months after that, and during Covid lockdowns, I obtained my Karuna Holy Fire Reiki Master Certification, the highest level I can go below being licensed.
Discovering energy medicine has been a game-changer for me. As an empath, it helped me to understand not only my emotional energy but also make sense of my childhood from an energetic standpoint. Energy medicine has helped me to learn tools and techniques for strengthening and protecting my energetic body. And more importantly, teach me how to tune into my emotional, energetic body.
Learning energy medicine has brought me great peace and also joy in sharing what I’ve learned. It has also been the perfect companion to the grief work I do with clients.
