Reiki Testimonials

“I have been a client of Maria’s since 2009. I request Reiki whenever I feel I need support in healing or to overcome a block. As an advanced practitioner, Maria is a master at directing my energy flow to allow me to be at my best. I am so grateful Maria offers herself as a conduit to this healing modality.” - Marie D. 

"Shinpiden class with Maria was a beautiful experience. I trained in western Reiki but felt there was more to learn about this wonderful energy system. Maria took time to work with me one on one, teaching me what I needed to transition to the Usui Reiki Ryoho lineage. Maria was patient, flexible, compassionate, and demonstrated an incredible energy level during the 3 days of classes. After completing training, Maria continues to lovingly support my Reiki journey as I practice ‘being’ Reiki. My
gratitude for this opportunity is boundless." - Robin S.

"I was introduced to Maria, and Reiki, in 2017 when I was in a hard place emotionally and physically. My 4-year-old had just received an official diagnosis of severe ADHD and a sensory processing disorder, and I had just given birth to my second son a year prior. Additionally, I was having significant pain in my lower back that would later be diagnosed as ankylosing spondylitis. Reiki (and Maria!) has been and continues to be a blessing to my life and a balm to my physical body. I have felt the intense pain in my back and hips that I had previously resigned myself to suffering through every day completely dissipate for months at a time. Experiencing the renewal of my body's own ability to manage pain and heal from within with the help of Maria and her practice has been life-affirming! Under her instruction, I have been able to slowly incorporate meditation into my daily life and now actively understand that renewal, calm, and connection are literally just a breath away no matter where I am, or how my day is going. I can't imagine life without Reiki and I feel so blessed to be able to continue in this practice with such a kind and immensely knowledgeable practitioner to guide me." - J.H. 

"I was diagnosed with depression in the winter of 2018.  I’ve done a lot of healing on my own during my life, but the “bigger” issues would always get pushed down because I was afraid to face them and let them heal.  I fully believe this is what made me sick.  I started therapy in January.  I made a little progress. I looked into several forms of energy healing to use along with therapy and found Maria.  Things began to shift for me immediately.  Since I started Reiki treatments with her in May of 2018, my depression has subsided and I have found my joy again.  I feel the Reiki (and Maria) were the key factors in my recovery.  Things fell into place for me in a way they never had before. I took a leap of faith with Maria and it paid off in ways I couldn’t have imagined.  She is on my gratitude list every day!" - B.K.

"A friend suggested Maria’s work to me during a period I felt under siege by adversarial energy and intense stress. Under Maria’s capable hands, and in the quality of loving presence she infuses, I have felt my nervous system calm, and peace return to my body and spirit. I also sent a friend to her who has a major health challenge; he referred to her as “The Great Maria,” after a session with her. I believe in the principles of Reiki, and found them enacted by Maria as a practitioner." Gratefully,  - Mary Pierce Brosmer, Founder of Women Writing for (a) Change

"After being diagnosed with cancer I had major surgery to remove a tumor and was treated with Chemotherapy and with Radiation. In an effort to avoid a recurrence and to heal from the negative effects treatment had on me I was researching methods to optimize my bodies own abilities to heal itself. The Cancer Support Community introduced me to Reiki and I have been receiving three times per month since. I connected with Maria while she was volunteering in a Reiki Share program @ CSC. Thanks to Maria I am a believer in “life force energy” and how keeping it high with Reiki will help me to be healthier. Also since working with Maria I am more content and more capable of living in the moment. I am grateful to have met Maria and have access to her talent and dedication as a Reiki Master." - Greg

"Maria is a force for goodness in our community! I receive weekly Reiki treatments from her to help maintain my sense of balance and well being. I feel GREAT when I finish a session with her!

Maria rocks!" - Debbie

"From the moment I met Maria, I felt her calm and loving energy. She brings warmth and peacefulness to all she does. I can be a bit high-strung, so Reiki treatments with Maria are a wonderful way to bring me back to center and reduce anxiety.

"A Reiki treatment helps ones self by allowing the person to find tranquility. In the calm you begin to find the answer to your problem. Reiki seems to me a joint effort between the Reiki Master and client onto what ails the person. Although the heat created from the hands seems other worldly the peace that melted away my anxiety and angst became the real miracle." - Mike 

“Maria has a lovely, peaceful energy that is a joy to be near. I loved her Reiki Level One class and now give Reiki to myself and my family on a regular basis. It has brought a new level of calm and peace into our life and it has helped me to manage my challenges with insomnia.”   – Bari 

"In my experience, it is most beneficial to partner with one who can assist in opening energy channels to allow the flow necessary for stimulating our mind, body, and spirit's power to heal. Maria has been my healing partner for years, I leave every session in awe of her powerful ability to channel Reiki and I am so grateful to be on the receiving end." - Tammy 

“I just wanted to let you know I had a HUGE breakthrough after our Reiki treatment a few weeks ago. And that I've been wearing that crocheted Reiki heart necklace you made for me last year 24 hours a day while I'm up here in Milwaukee. So much love to you and your important work. Namaste!!!   - April 

"So happy for you Maria! Having attended your Reiki II class, I've already received many blessings from your work. Can't wait to learn and receive more from you." – Lisa 

“Before meeting Maria, I didn't know anything about Reiki.  She both helped me understand the art of Reiki and, through treatments, worked with me to manage my stress and anxiety.  She gave me Reiki in some of my most difficult times—during an MRI and during the births of both of my children.  Her treatments and instruction have changed the way I think about healing energy and human connectedness.  Because of her practice I am a better, happier, more enlightened person.”  -Tamara
