"My experience with Debbie as an energy practitioner has been such a blessing in my life. I look forward to every session and it brings such peace and comfort to me. There is not one part of my life that hasn't benefitted from Reiki. My health, my home, my son, my thoughts and feelings, even my dogs!!!" –Nikki L., Leesburg VA



I was introduced to Reiki, a form of energy medicine, by my radiation oncologist during my treatment for breast cancer.

I had never heard of it…but thought if my doctor was recommending it, then who was I to argue?  At that point, I was willing to try anything that would enhance my traditional medical treatment.  FULL DISCLOSURE…I thought it was a little weird.  I just didn’t get it…and the woman snoring next to me at a group “session” certainly didn’t help.

Fast forward and here I am…a certified practitioner and teacher of several energy healing modalities.

So what IS energy “medicine”?  And why do I think it’s so fantastic?

Think about this…our bodies are made of energy.  Every cell, every fiber, every breath we take requires and projects energy. I believe (as do my fellow energy practitioners) that all energy emanates from Source (God, the Universe, Great Spirit). While not affiliated with religion necessarily, energy therapy is by definition a highly spiritual practice.  By connecting to Spirit, we can direct divine energy in a conscious way to achieve healing on a physical, emotional, mental, and/or spiritual level.

As a Reiki Master-Teacher, I have studied and practiced this modality for years.  I have seen amazing and marvelous changes in both myself and my clients.

It is a safe, gentle, non-invasive way to encourage your body’s relaxation response to kick in and thereby “jump start” your own healing process.  (You even get cozy under a blanket with all your clothes on!)  And even more lovely...we can work "long distance" -- because YES the energy flows that way, too!

Chakras are energy centers within the body.  We have over 88,000 chakras in our bodies, but we generally work with seven main chakras.  When these are in balance, we feel and perform better (think about a car that has tires out of alignment…feel that wobble?).  When our energy is flowing within our bodies in a strong, smooth fashion, we feel like we can handle anything!

Our energy field (sometimes called an aura) surrounds our body and contains an imprint of our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual condition.  A clear, smooth aura can be key in helping us feel balanced and healthy.

And let’s talk about rocks and stones – commonly known as crystals.  More than just beautiful to look at, these treasures are powerful cleansers and activators of our energy centers.

In my healing practice, I combine Reiki with chakra balancing, auric cleansing, and crystal therapy. It’s a powerful combination … and one I’m passionate about.

Debbie is an an amazing Reiki practitioner. When I met her, I was completely new to energy work. To be honest, I was a bit skeptical, too. That doubt dissipated within the first five minutes of our first session. Debbie puts you at ease right away. She is very talented. As she works, she takes the time to explain all steps of the process. Debbie is able to hear my angels and relay messages that they may have for me. I credit Debbie with helping me to finally start to beat my chronic clinical depression. I have tried every treatment there is for depression, but nothing worked until I started working with Debbie. She is truly a life saver. It is a privilege to be Debbie Schaffer's client.
