Our Story

 

 

 

 

 

Our journey began in the Summer of 2013. We were doubles partners at a local tennis club, and our friendship began to grow both on and off the courts.  As we travelled together to tennis competitions on the East coast and across the country to California, that bond deepened.  We realized we had a special connection and knew we were ready for the next chapter in our lives.

In October 2015 we decided to pursue our interest in Reiki.  Our first Reiki class inspired us beyond words. We were in awe and forever humbled by the experience. It became quite clear to us; we wanted more and there was no looking back. We began by receiving family and friends into our homes for Reiki sessions. Each session convinced us further of our true calling. By May 2016 we completed our Master certification in Usui Holy Fire Reiki with Myra Partyka. This enlightening experience with Myra deeply moved and guided us to share this special gift of Reiki. Our dream of a wellness center was beginning to take shape.  All the signs were there. We could see the Light! In August 2016 that special place was discovered.  

We are humbled and privileged to share our journey with you! Please join us at:
