Ashley first began her journey with Reiki energy healing after she was diagnosed with chronic vertigo in the winter of 2014. After months of numerous tests, doctor appointments, and testing out different prescription medicine, Ashley was still unable to find relief from her dizzy spells. That’s when her Mom suggested she try getting a Reiki treatment. With nothing to lose, Ashley went to a local practitioner and was astounded at how much relief she had after just one treatment. Pleased with her results, Ashley went on to study the practice of Reiki in order to be able to give herself self-sessions to help keep her vertigo symptoms at bay. She then decided to continue her education and become a practitioner in order to educate and treat others with the magic of Reiki.
Call or text Ashley directly at 203-313-4403 to schedule.
