Prior to my session with Meghan, I had little knowledge about Reiki and its effects. When I briefly shared with Meghan the pains I had been having and how it has been effecting my spirits she recommended a session. During the session itself, I felt an immediate calmness take over me and it was quite refreshing for a change. The deeper I got into my session the more in tune I was with breathing. When I started reading Meghan’s notes and recommendations to me from our session, it was amazing how she knew the exact areas where I had been having the most stress and pain. Meghan was so knowledgeable, insightful and directly in tune with what I had been going through these last few weeks and what I needed to do in the up coming weeks to continue the healing process. I absolutely would have another session with Meghan and would recommend others to do the same. I’ve had minimal to no pain thus far since the session and my mind and spirits are slowly starting to feel at ease again. Thank You Meghan. – Yvonne G.
