A Chat with Bodywork for Healing
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I am “grounded” from my time serving in the US Military. Although I know that science can’t yet explain why Reiki works, I’ve seen too many people benefit from reduced pain or a peaceful mind to say it doesn’t have an impact. My personal Reiki practice includes mediation and qigong. I am Christian.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I broke both my arms in massage school and had pins sticking out of one arm. I didn’t take any pain medication, but used Reiki and other bodywork to help me heal. I did full body massages after 9 weeks and handstands after 6 months. I was 40 at the time, and decided there must be something to Reiki.
What do you love most about your job?
I love to help people feel better in their bodies, and know the experience of a “quiet mind.” When we feel better, our quality of life improves. Our perception becomes our reality. When we feel good mentally and physically, we can make better decisions about our actions, words, and how we live.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
I’ve seen some amazing physical improvements, but those are unique to each individual. I often get feedback about sleeping well and being able to deal better with others (kids, co-workers). One person says she feels like she just returned from vacation after a Reiki treatment.
