Reiki is a form of energy healing wherein the practitioner directs a gentle healing energy into the client to promote relaxation and well-being. The Reiki healing system was developed in Japan by Mikao Usui in the early 1900s. The word Reiki translates loosely as “universal spiritual energy.”

Reiki reduces stress and increases calmness, creating mental and emotional balance and engaging the body’s own healing abilities for physical renewal. Benefits may include a sense of deep relaxation, reduced pain, improved sleep, mental clarity, and emotional stability. Reiki treatment is a wonderful adjunct for any other kind of healing because it works holistically to bring harmony to mind and body.

During a Reiki treatment, the client relaxes while seated or laying down fully clothed. The practitioner’s hands are placed on or near the client in several locations along the head and body. If the client prefers not to be touched directly, she may say so.

I am a certified Reiki Master/Teacher and have done an extended apprenticeship at the Master level. I studied Reiki and received my attunements (the ability to channel Reiki energy) from Adam Miramon. The Intuitive Reiki approach incorporates a variety of techniques, including assessment and balancing of the chakras, the body’s metaphysical energy centers.

  • A full Reiki treatment covers the whole body and lasts approximately an hour. It includes a discussion of any particular issues you are experiencing and can be tailored to address your specific concerns. A full Reiki treatment costs $50 in person, $30 remotely.
  • A Reiki and Tarot party is a fun way to try something new! In a group setting I offer Reiki mini-treatments which last five to ten minutes per person. Participants could choose a Reiki mini-treatment or a Tarot mini-reading. Parties cost $50 per hour.
  • I teach Intutive Reiki classes for participants to learn to use Reiki energy for healing themselves and others.

Please contact me at literatahurley@gmail.com to book a Reiki session or arrange classes.


Please note: Reiki and shamanic healing are forms of complementary medicine and should be used in combination with conventional medical care. Do not delay seeking care from a licensed medical professional or disregard the advice of a licensed medical professional.

All my in-person services include travel to central Ohio locations within an hour of Columbus. For remote healings no direct interaction is necessary, but I can videoconference via Skype, Google chat, or FaceTime if desired.
