I first came to Reiki in the 90's I working in a gem and mineral store where I fell in love with working with the healing power of gems and minerals . I met a wonderful Reiki Master who I received treatments with for a year. During my first treatment I realized I had a familiar feeling of the hands on healing. It reminded me of how I used to heal myself when I was a child using my hands to help my body settle and rebalance. After all the other forms of energy work I had tried I realized I wanted to be trained in this amazing system of healing.
During the course of a year I did my Reiki Training the later half I was pregnant during my attunments with Reiki. This helped me so much in my pregnancy and in my labor . I had a greater understanding of the relationship with myself and my body. I started to offer sessions and went onto creating a Reiki Clinic that served the public. I ran the Reiki Clinic in Portland at Leapin Lizards for 10 years. It was a very profound time in my life watching people transform and heal themselves and seeing the service of the Reiki Clinic help build the Reiki community in Maine. It is the longest running clinic to have ran in Maine that served the public and Reiki Practioners.
I was one of the lucky few to be apart of the beginning of Reiki being offering at Maine Medical Center in Portland. I was a Reiki volunteer on call for a year serving the different wards and pre-op surgery offering Reiki to patients. I started the first Reiki Clinic serving those with Cancer at the Cancer Community Center in South Portland where I ran the Reiki Clinic for a year.
Since 2001 I have been teaching Reiki Classes & Training Certification attuning many wonderful clients. Through out my career of being a
Reiki Master Teacher I have given over 3,000 Reiki treatments. I held a the first Reiki Conference in Maine in 2011 which had an array of Reiki Masters lecture and present. I enjoy sharing my love for the practice and have lectured at University of Southern Maine in the Holistic Health Department.
My new studio is in the heart of Portland in the State Theater building.It is a healing space where I have on going monthly Reiki Certification Classes. Level One and Level Two are offered and Master Training is offered one -on one.
My journey with Reiki has changed my life in profound ways and I'm still on the path of having the work show me a greater sense of purpose and service. Many Blessings Mary
