Jayleen Hayden has always had deep connections with the people she meets. From a young age, she noticed that she was especially adept at reading and even feeling others' emotions, a skill that she attributes to her sensitivity to personal energies. This innate ability aids her during the reiki sessions she performs, which treat the energetic blockages traditional medicine doesn't address. By using her energy to shift and balance her client's energy, Jayleen's hands-on therapy can help relieve the symptoms of stress, anxiety, or chronic pain while also healing the underlying energetic causes of these conditions. Customers can call on Jayleen for in-person reiki sessions, long-distance reiki, and animal reiki for stressed or anxious pets. In addition to reiki, Jayleen performs tarot-card readings for her clients to help answer their questions or give them insight into what to expect in the coming year, including what hot-dog carts to avoid.
