I was introduced to Reiki by a friend. I had been having trouble with a frozen shoulder that was refusing to budge, even after months of physical therapy and other western treatments. After my first Reiki treatment, I could move my shoulder several inches higher than previously measured. I continued with the Reiki treatments and my shoulder continued to improve. I didn't know how or why Reiki worked, but I was convinced it did.
A few years after my introduction to Reiki, I decided to learn how to do this remarkable therapy and found my teacher. This was in 2008. I opened my Reiki practice in November 2009.
Prior to this my primary business was fiber art, specifically paper sculptures and contemporary baskets.
And, prior to my art career, I spent 15 years as a nurse. I worked primarily in labor and delivery, and also was a member of a nursing research group, with several published articles.
I am a member of the Vermont Reiki Association. Please see their webpage for additional information: Vermont Reiki Association
