Hi, I'm Melissa


Hey there, I’m Melissa.

I am a Usui / Holy Fire® Karuna® Reiki Master/Teacher, a shamanic energy healing practitioner, and energy medicine practitioner.

I am passionate about the power of holistic healing because when all else failed, it helped me overcome the obstacles in life that left me both stressed and depressed. That's why I'm confident that Reiki and energy healing will help you too.

If you're new to Reiki, Shamanic Healing, and Energy Medicine, I want to personally invite you to book an individual session with me to learn more about how holistic healing can help you heal your internal and external pain and embrace your individual gifts.

Over 20 years ago, I was working two jobs, commuting 2 hours every day, and raising a family. In short, I was stressed and depressed. I wanted to find a way to deal with that, so I searched online for holistic healing modalities. I found Reiki, or it found me.

I had never heard of it but found someone nearby who offered it. I had never felt so relaxed and so peaceful in my life. I knew I wanted to learn how to do this myself by the second session. It took me nearly seven years to finish all the levels and become a Reiki Master/Teacher...not because it takes that long, but because I needed that time to decide whether it was something I wanted to pursue professionally. I also started learning and practicing Eden Energy Medicine and self-learning about many other energy modalities.

Still, I struggled with a deep sense of disconnection, depression, and loneliness in a world of 7 billion people. I was searching for something to make me feel whole; I just couldn't figure out what. For me, it came down to three fundamental issues: (1) no community of like-minded, supportive people, (2) no spiritual connection with divinity, and (3) no sense of my purpose in life or how I could be of service. After searching, I finally realized that I was looking externally for answers that could only be found internally.

Since then, I have turned to a shamanic meditation practice of communion with the Divine and within. I co-created the Holistic Wellness Fair, healing circles, and other events to facilitate networking, awareness, and support within and of the local holistic community. This journey of growth and exploration can be challenging, but it is much more enjoyable since finding my passion and purpose. I am honored to help you on your own journey.
