Kind Words

I have offered Reiki to many people since I began practicing in 2013. This is what people have to say about their Reiki experiences…

Reiki for cancer support. In 2017, I began offering Reiki at Olcott Center for Cancer Education in Bloomington. 61% of patients who received Reiki report decreased pain, and 78% report decreased stress levels following their session.*

“Really felt this deeply, in an emotional way. Becky was really nice and peaceful and thoughtful.”

“Becky has wonderful energy and her Reiki work felt intuitive, loving and gentle.”

“[My Reiki session] made my back feel less painful and my head feels better… made me calmer throughout my body.”

“Very gentle–healing energy–lovely.”


“Wonderful experience.”

“Very relaxing, very comforting.”

“So relaxed, so comfortable.”

Reiki promotes healing on all levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I have worked with a wide variety people, addressing a number of concerns.

“Becky’s work is both subtle and precise. Her Reiki treatments flow over me like warm healing liquid gently saturating my body and psyche, pooling into and penetrating those areas that require deeper work. Sometimes the sessions will bring my attention to something heretofore unnoticed but now poised for attention in the weeks ahead. Becky’s work has been helpful to me on so many levels.”

“My first several Reiki sessions with Becky were remote — and since I had never received Reiki before, I didn’t know what to expect and was skeptical that I would experience anything from nearly 1000 miles away. Each session brought alive sensations and healing grace that were truly transformative. The first series of remote Reiki sessions were after a traumatic miscarriage, and Reiki brought me a peace I hadn’t been able to find … I received more Reiki early on in a subsequent pregnancy, and I was fortunate enough to have a hands on session with Becky more recently, thick into my third trimester. The moment she laid her hands on me, I felt a restfulness in my body, and the baby, normally active at that time in the evening, immediately nestled into a comfortable position. I discovered places in my body that I had been neglecting, and that need my attention to stay healthy. I felt the energy pulsing through my body, my nerves alive while my mind found peace. I am so grateful for Becky’s willingness to share Reiki and her unique gifts.”

“When I have had long distance Reiki sessions with Becky, I have immediately felt her presence and the Reiki flow through my body. During sessions I experience a deep sense of relaxation and restoration. Afterward, I have often found my emotional state of being uplifted. My children have also received remote sessions from Becky for physical ailments, and I’ve noticed they recovered much quicker than expected. A healing Reiki session from Becky is a wonderful gift to give yourself.”

“I had a severe back sprain due to disc compression that had me mostly confined to my home for a couple of months. I was very limited in mobility, strength, and was in that full-body back pain that, while not excruciating, is all-encompassing . Becky visited several times for Reiki. Her kind and calm presence alone was a relief during a time of great frustration, fear and anxiety. I was afraid to have too much touch and manipulation, and the Reiki sessions were so non-invasive I was able to relax during them. Afterwards I felt a notable change in pain level, mobility. More important, I felt less fearful and anxious and more hopeful about my progress. It’s as if I got a larger perspective on the current crisis. I strongly believe that my mental/emotional state was directly connected to that pain level, which improved after receiving Reiki.”

“When I found myself in a difficult emotional passageway Becky offered to do Reiki work with me, and I accepted.  I did not know what to expect or what I might experience. What I found with her was a sort of loving, assisted meditation, in which I focused on my stressed body and psyche with my own breath while simultaneously opening to a strong energy which flowed through both Becky and myself. I experienced phases of intense energy movement in my body, which in my case has helped loosen physical tension, and periods of a more general well being.  I sensed moments of difficulty when the energy flow encountered a blockage. Sometimes beautiful imagery came into my mind.  But most fundamentally, a bodily understanding of shared vitality and loving kindness. If you are interested in working with this kind of path I feel that Becky is a genuine guide and partner.”

“Our son was diagnosed with a rare disease shortly after birth. We decided to enhance his medical treatments with regular Reiki sessions over an eight month period to help regulate his sleep cycles and mitigate the side effects of his invasive medical treatments. Becky was wonderful! She provided distant and hands-on sessions tailored to our son’s individual needs, and really helped support my husband and I during a very difficult time. We saw such a big change in our son’s energy when he received Reiki – he was more relaxed and seemed much more comfortable. Our son has made a huge recovery in his health and we believe Becky’s Reiki practice was a big part of his successful care. Thank you Becky!”
