Nothing surprising, I'm sure. It all comes down to kindness, compassion, love, and respect.

What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!

Reiki is a spiritual practice for me, and I come to it with a religious background. Before moving into my current professional Reiki practice, I was a parish minister for 40 years. Reiki was an important part of my ministry, both practicing and teaching the practice. I deeply love the Reiki practice experience, and sharing Reiki gives me great joy!

Customer Reviews

My dog was not feeling well. I believed there are other avenues I can try to assist my dog to getting better, so I decided to aid her with reiki treatments. My dog was so weak my vet said there isn’t much they can do for her. She just wouldn’t eat and play anymore. In my heart I felt this isn’t her time there must be another way I can help my dog. I heard of reiki . In my search I reached out to Lindsay. Wow!! What a wonderful surprise to see my dog go through such an amazing transformation. Lindsay spent a week with her and after each session Lindsay would sent me feedback on what was done and how things went. After each session my dog slept a lot, which is common however after the second session she showed signs of getting stronger. It was such a joy to see her going for her food and asking to go outside. My dog is such a happy strong vibrant girl now it looks like there was nothing wrong with her to begin with. Thank you Lindsay for your wonderful reiki work and your love for helping parents in need like myself.
I strongly recommend Lindsay to parents who are looking to benefit from reiki treatments. Lindsay’s wonderful reiki work brought my dog back to existence and I could not be more happier. Thank you Lindsay .
