Kelly became a certified Reiki Master Teacher over a four year period, completing Level I, II, Master Level, and Master Teacher Level in Usui Reiki-do at the Reiki-do Natural Healing Center in Tecumseh, Ontario. In 2013 she became a certified Karuna Reiki® Master Teacher.
Kelly grew up in the southern-most town in Canada, Kingsville, Ontario. In 2009, she completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the nearby University of Windsor in the collaborative program with St. Clair College. Currently, Kelly works as a full-time Registered Nurse on the radiation oncology / hematology unit at The Ottawa Hospital General Campus. During her undergrad years, she discovered the benefits of the healing modality called Reiki. Reiki helped her facilitate a more balanced lifestyle and decrease stress.
Her Reiki journey began in late August 2006. Kelly's best friend had discovered the Reiki-Do Natural Healing Center, a place where Reiki treatments were offered by two Reiki Master Teachers. She raved about her first experience getting Reiki and encouraged Kelly to give it a try.
Kelly's first experience as a client was a back treatment, as she had been having pain in her lower back. At the time, she was also seeing a chiropractor and taking anti-inflammatory medication. They informed her that Reiki works with all other forms of health care and enhances their effects as well. Kelly was a bit skeptical, but kept an open mind. After the treatment, her back pain was gone, and after a few more back treatments it stayed that way!
She began receiving regular treatments and discovered an immense interest in energy healing. After experiencing its benefits she decided to take Reiki courses. Kelly is now a Reiki Master Teacher in Usui Reiki-do and Karuna Reiki®
Kelly really enjoys practicing Reiki. Most importantly, she does it for herself everyday because she feels it is a good way to heal the strains put on her body and mind from daily life. Reiki has helped Kelly to be more creative, more balanced, more relaxed, and more aware of the world around her.
She enjoys giving Reiki to anyone who expresses an interest in Reiki and asks for her help. Kelly has received wonderful results with all the people she has worked on. That kind of validation encouraged her to continue walking on this path and start practicing Reiki publicly. Kelly is thrilled to be able to help people in so many ways!
