Reiki with Ashley


Reiki is a healing modality that originated in Japan.  The word Reiki translates to Universal Life Energy. 

Rei means Universal, and Ki means life force energy.

Our bodies have energy channels / meridian pathways commonly treated in Chinese medicine and Yogic traditions.  Often, this energy can become off balance, stuck and disturbed due to life stressors or medical conditions.  A Reiki session and treatment helps to facilitate relaxation and restoration of proper energy flows through these vital channels in us all.  In a whole host of scenarios throughout life, individuals find Reiki helpful for handling stressful times and / or as a complement to other treatments.

How you might feel:

During and after a session, a Reiki session recipient typically feels more at ease and in more of a relaxed state, although specific experiences vary.  

How a distance Reiki session works:

A virtual distance Reiki session is done via video or phone call, and entails me accessing and sending energy to you, all with positive healing and balancing intentions.  The session may consist of some talking and some silence depending on the session.  Distance Reiki healing is truly equivalently impactful as in-person Reiki healing.  The MindBodyGreen website explains it nicely indicating:

“Distance Reiki works according to an ancient principle called the Hermetic Law of

Similarity, which holds that we are all connected, as we are all made of energy

and part of a larger whole. Invoking this law during a distance Reiki session allows

the practitioner to link up to the energy field of the recipient.”



I came into embracing Reiki slowly myself.  For much of my life, I did not appreciate or understand how it worked, and honestly doubted it.  However, upon receiving Reiki myself for a series of sessions for mood & chronic pain issues and, surprisingly being quite positively affected by it, I shifted my perspective.  I experienced benefits from Reiki of releasing some of my emotional burdens, minimizing my chronic pain, and allowing me to feel more overall relaxation and happiness.  I am grateful for this personal shift in my exposure to and beneficial experience with Reiki.  This is what ultimately led me to train to become a Reiki Master and to be able to share the gift of Reiki with others.  I look forward to meeting and working with you on your journey of healing. 

I am located in the state of Maryland in the USA, and practice out of my home studio.
