Reiki and Energy Healing

As I have mentioned before, this is one of my favourite reasons to blog. I love sharing information about ways to improve our health and connecting people to people.

One of the biggest perks of my job is the opportunity that I personally get is to gain knowledge from experienced professionals about what they do and how it helps improve people’s lives.  I use this “Meet and Learn” section of my little blog universe to educate and connect. I will periodically introduce you to a practitioner or practice that you may not know much about.  The goal is for you to learn what options for healing are available to you.  With Reiki, I have found that clients, family and friends are sometimes familiar with the word, but have no insight into what it actually is. I was like that too. Furthermore, I find that with energy-based healing modalities, people are often a bit skeptical about what these people do. I am not into “woo woo” mysticism. I consider myself very grounded, and if anything, more science based than not. In my opinion, with Reiki and other energy based practices, you will come across practitioners with depth of experience and talent, and those that do not have either. Today, I want to introduce you to Alyssa Zobary. I have known Alyssa for many years. We became friends through our children, and long before I was a practicing nutritionist. We were friends. She was not my Reiki master or anything. However, I want to share an experience I personally had with her that was quite unique.

It was 2006, and I was scheduled to have a fairly serious surgical procedure. I had young kids, and Alyssa knew how incredibly nervous I was to have this operation. She knew the date and time of my operation. I remember heading into pre-op that morning, with my husband by my side. I was a wreck.  As the clock struck 11:00 am, suddenly this incredible sense of calm came over me. To be honest, the contrast from one minute to the next was quite bizarre. I remember remarking about that to my husband. All went well. As I recovered, I received a call or visit from Alyssa. She told me that she had done some reiki on me from afar. She was sending me specific energy at exactly the time that I felt that calm sweep over me. I know this sounds “woo woo” and I said I am not.

There was just no way that anyone could have known exactly how I felt going into that surgery, or how dramatically my nerves calmed in that pre-op room. I was fascinated, and I still am.

I have since had an opportunity to experience a Reiki session in Alyssa’s office. It was calming, rejuvenating and the after effects were amazing. I liken the experience to the similar way that certain types of physical exercise make me feel.

Allow me to introduce you to Alyssa Zobary, (Usui Reiki Master).

p9270085-copyWith a background in Biodynamic Massage and Psychotherapy, Alyssa became a Reiki practitioner 18 years ago. Over those 18 years she has also learned and worked with Shamanic healing, Chakra Balancing, and Essential Oils. Alyssa works intuitively and finds working with the combination of all of the modalities helps bring unique and individual session experiences to her clients.


Rei Ki is a light-touch energy-based healing modality. It works as a support mechanism for the body, helping to re-establish a normal energy flow of ki (life force energy) throughout the body system, which in turn can enhance and accelerate the body’s innate healing ability.

Rei Ki is an ancient healing art which channels universal life energy through the hands of the practitioner into the body of the receiver. We are all born with this universal life energy, but as we go through life we become less open and the flow through our bodies becomes less free. It is through the art of Rei Ki that the energy can once again begin to flow more freely through the body and help create self-healing.

Rei Ki is a wonderful tool to help one develop conscious awareness, spiritual growth and change.

Rei Ki helps to: revitalize and balance the body on all levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual; release pain and stress thus promoting a deep state of relaxation; release fear, allowing one to step through old thought patterns; and enhances creativity.

Rei Ki also helps to rebalance the chakras and helps to release old energy patterns, helping one to develop a more holistic perception of life.


Reiki is extremely effective in helping quicken the healing process through relaxation, stress release, lifting of withheld emotions and energy blocks. Reiki supports other therapeutic treatments, such as naturopathic medicine, massage, reflexology, acupressure, acupuncture, chiropractic treatment, breath therapy, lymph drainage, psychotherapy etc. Reiki is a wonderful tool to help one develop conscious awareness, spiritual growth and change. Reiki can promote relaxation and reduce pain as a result of acute or chronic illnesses.  It can also help patients have an easier time waking up or recovering from anesthesia and surgical trauma. Reiki can help with the treatment of depression and anxiety. Reiki is simple and produces measurable results. Reiki transcends the man-made divisions of religion, economics, location, gender, and race and does not conflict with any religious or meditative practices. Reiki does not conflict with allopathic medicine.

Bring a new, positive energy into your home or office space.

The practice of house blessings (also referred to as house clearings) is an ancient tradition that invites positive energy into your home. Your home is an extension of your body and spirit. As you give to your home, you give to yourself.

As you might have experienced, your space reflects and affects your inner life. If you bless your home and lavish it with love, it becomes a gracious holder of your dreams. During a house blessing, you imbue the space with love, harmony, health, happiness, and prosperity.

Blessing your house or office is akin to energizing it with positive intentions. You can do a house blessing before you move into a new space or when you want to bless a space you already inhabit in a new, purposeful way.

For example, you may do a house blessing when a new spouse moves in or a baby comes into your life, after renovations, or after you clear clutter and want to invite fresh energy into your home. You can also do it for your business if you are moving into a new office space or feel you need to boost the energy in your existing space.
