Platonic Touch Therapy
“I am feeling wonderful; I woke up feeling relaxed and energized for my seminar. Yesterday, I would only answer questions that I felt obliged to answer and was uninterested in speaking with the other attendees outside of ‘yes’ or ‘no’ responses. However TODAY, I’ve been engaging with other people at the seminar and actually INITIATING conversations with a light-heartedness that was not there before our session.”
“Thanks for renewing my belief in humanity.”
“That did not feel like a first session. I’m still in shock about how fast time flew and how good that felt. Thank you for a life-affirming experience. You made me feel very at home and for that I appreciate you. Still happily surprised to feel so organically connected with you.”
“I noticed how present and connected I felt around people... I just want to thank you again for the work you do. Really, truly. Thank you."
Reiki Energy Healing
"I went to HumanKind Wellness a couple of weeks ago for a Reiki session, and I’ll definitely be going back for more sessions in the near future.
To start, Rachael is truly a gem. (I’d go as far as calling her an earth healer.) She exudes a positive, warm energy that puts you at ease instantly. She’s the type of person you want to be around even after a seriously awful day.
We started the appointment discussing my reasons for booking a Reiki session. Through some tears, I explained that I’ve been struggling with high functioning depression and anxiety for years. After deciding that SSRIs are not for me, I was looking for sustainable ways to find equilibrium—in addition to the usual recommendations of therapy, diet, sleep and exercise. Let’s be honest: therapy has its limits and it’s hard to sleep consistently, eat healthfully and exercise regularly when you’re parenting a (super lovely but highly unpredictable) toddler and dealing with all of life’s usual stressors in your mid-30s. It was clear from the first ten minutes alone that Rachael understood my needs and that I was in good hands.
The session itself was in comfortable, candlelit room with soothing music in the background. I opted for the light touch Reiki (versus touch-less). Having never experienced Reiki before, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. During the session, I felt very relaxed with some noteworthy vibrations over my forehead and throat. I was honestly shocked at how relaxed I felt considering this wasn’t a massage. (For those of you new to Reiki: these vibrations were startling at first, but I later found them energizing.)
At the end of the session, I stood up and feeling much lighter and simply just...better. (A far cry from the state I was in at the beginning of the session.) My session with Rachael had helped clear some space in my mind and I was feeling much less rundown and fatigued because of it.
I can’t really explain the science behind Reiki. But, even as a true believer in modern medicine, I also believe that some people in this world are healers. I truly believe that Rachael is one of those people." ~N. Warren
"My first Reiki session with Rachael was truly a gift. I came to her after completing a series of immunotherapy treatments for my lymphoma, and it could not have been a better way to refresh and renew my energy. I felt so cared for during my session and experienced a much-needed sense of release.
As a practitioner, Rachael is exceptional. She is so professional, and though I was relatively new to Reiki, I felt completely at ease in her care. She talked me through each step of the session and was respectful and gentle throughout. Rachael's dedication to her work and her belief in the power of healing through human connection shine through in her care of her clients.
I left my session feeling calm, supported, and confident in my body's ability to continue the healing process. I am so grateful to Rachael for this experience, and I will absolutely be back." ~H. Hens-Piazza
"I recently had a 1 hour Reiki session with Rachael. I’ve been going through anxiety and depression for the last two years so I went in with a skeptic mind but also a desperate hope for the session to help. I was bowled over by the effect the healing energy had on me. Within 10 mins I felt the energy trickle down my heart area and go all the way to the soles of my feet. The skeptic in me was now silent. Reiki works. It felt like a dark mucky cloud of stress and anxiety just cleared up from my mind during that one hour. I felt this light, giggly energy well up in my heart, I felt light and free and happy - something I hadn’t felt in over a year. By the end, my mind state had dramatically changed for the better and I could think clearly about some big life decisions.
Rachael conducted the session with such professionalism. She took the time to patiently answer my questions and concerns. The place was set up with the perfect aromatic candles and soothing music. Most of all, she radiates genuine care and compassion. I am so glad to have had this experience. I strongly recommend her!" ~V. Jain
