How She Works

What to know  or expect from Kim
She works mostly Online through Zoom or Distance Reiki via Crystal Healing Grids with Reiki.  There will be some classes or courses that will be a combination of In-person and Online. 
You will receive a new client intake form to send ahead of time. At times Kim gets intuitive messages from a variety of Reiki, guides, or beings that often work with her. Let her know if you want this information. At the end of the journey, it is common for her to help you with a phrase or to have you pick an oracle card that has wisdom for you in the coming days or weeks.  She will schedule a brief follow-up call for 3-7 days after your appointment. Reiki best helps with 3 or more sessions for a specific condition. Packages are available.

Reiki works no matter the situation

The picture to the right of this description is full of variety and color, which describes how Kim works to let Reiki flow in the journeys. No two Reiki Journeys are the same. Each Reiki Journey is individual to you and your needs.
- If you need stress relief for you and your animal companion she offers a Reiki session for the both of you.
- If you want relaxation, Kim works with you as Reiki flows through her to help you release and relax. 
- If you have a specific health concern; she can work with you with different techniques of Reiki to help the body do its job which is to heal. Reiki complements western medicine.
- If you are seeking to attain a specific life goal the Reiki Journey can be focused to release and heal any blocks, and often provides steps or wisdom to attain the goal.
- If you are moving through a life transition then Kim offers a Resilience Reiki Coaching Program to help you create your next steps with confidence. 
- If you have a 'call' to serve others in a way that is healing or know that you want to serve others by being a Reiki Practitioner for people or animals, Kim offers all levels of Reiki training. See classes and events.
