Maureen has been an empath since she was a child. She also experienced little miracles that left no doubt in her mind that a Benevolent Force was always with her! In her 20’s she went into a bliss state that lasted for days. During that time she also found a Course In Miracles, her studies and the Teachings continue to influence her life today. In her late 30’s she was lead to a worldwide Yoga organization, Guru, meditation and Sanskrit chanting. During meditation she begin having psychic visions of Angels, Ascended Master and other Beings of Light. She first experienced Reiki in the late 90’s, looking for alternative pain relief from a serious tendon accident that required surgery and 6 months of rehab. ‘Although I didn’t really feel much during those early sessions, something about the Reiki keep me coming back. About 9 months after the initial treatments I went to a Reiki clinic and settled in for a session. I had a complete out of body experience; I went into a deeply powerful and peaceful meditative state, the treatment stayed with me for days, it was an incredible feeling.’
The road has most definitely been winding and Maureen’s experiences include a challenging childhood and wild-child past! Her real-life experiences, compassion and sense of humor make her genuine and relate-able to most people. Since taking her Reiki Level 1 class in 2001, the Reiki Path has become the spiritual platform supporting every aspect of her life. Ever growing and changing, she continues on her own journey of healing an awakening. Each of us have our own Path up the mountain but they ultimately lead to the same peak, together we climb!
After becoming a Reiki Practitioner in 2001 and since massage was a natural platform from which to give Reiki treatments, Maureen went to massage school! She started her private practice in October 2003. Joti Reiki developed out of a desire to specialize in client focused, heart-centered, therapeutic and medical Reiki for people and animals! She welcomes people from all walks of life, everyone from first timers to the well-seasoned client. From the moment you are greeted, her goal is to make you feel comfortable, answer all your questions and meet your treatment goals. Maureen is a continuous seeker and student in her own life, hopefully growing and changing as she walks her Path. She considers herself a companion and friend who supports the ultimate Teacher within YOU and is grateful and honored to be walking this Path with you!
