I first studied Reiki in 1993, but my introduction to Energy Healing work came several years earlier when I was at university studying for my nursing degree. It was there that I learned of nursing theorist Martha Rogers and The Science of Universal Human Beings.
Learning of Therapeutic Touch as practiced by adherents to Rogers' theory led ultimately to my taking a course in Reiki in 1993 and later obtaining the Master-Teacher level. To this day, I still refer students to the basics of Rogers' Science of Universal Human Beings when discussing the hows and whys of Energy Healing.
Today, I practice Energy Healing through Reiki, but my work is very much focused on intuitive healing. When I received training as an shamanic healer, this added a new dimension to the healing work I am able to provide.
