Introduction: Hey everyone, I'm Mel! My passion for healing through transformation, shadow work and energy work has led me to become a certified Reiki Master, in the Usui practice. I offer reiki sessions to people who are looking for an opportunity to deepen their connection to themselves, so that they may more fully step into the embodiment of their most authentic, loving self. The Japanese word "reiki" translates to "universal life energy," and the premise of this healing art is to bring about more healing, wholeness and peace to the world. Reiki healing addresses energetic imbalances within an individual's mind, body, and spirit, so to bring about more harmony in all areas of life. As a queer, non binary healing practitioner, I strive to create a safe space for individuals from all backgrounds. I deeply believe in true equity, justice, and liberation for all, and feel that space to heal from traumas, especially state sanctioned violence and oppression, are incredibly vital at this time. I am currently only offering distance Reiki sessions. Because reiki healing operates in the energetic field, distance session are just as effective as healing sessions in person. An hour long session consists of: *10 minute phone call discussing any issues you are currently dealing with and want to focus on *30-40 minute reiki healing session *10-20 minute follow up conversation discussing what came up during the session. I will share any intuitive insights and suggestions I received during the reiki session.

Alchemy Healing was very attentive to my personal needs throughout our session. In conversation, they gave me space to voice any and all anxieties/thoughts/emotions. I found this activity particularly helpful because it allowed me to focus my intentions prior to the healing work. This allowed me to become an active participant in the practice. Alchemy Healing was gentle, patient, and compassionate. 10/10

I did a couple sessions with Mel and they were both great! I'd never worked with Reiki before, but Mel put any doubts I had to rest. Not only were the sessions themselves cathartic and refreshing, but Mel also relayed quite a bit of useful info to me after she finished regarding specific issues I was dealing with. Highly recommend! 😄

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I am currently offering reiki distance sessions at $70/hour, but am more than happy to offer sliding scale pricing ($33-70). Feel free to send me a message if you're interested in sliding scale, and we'll make it work!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    For new clients, I offer a 20 minute complimentary phone call to discuss their intentions for our work together, and any questions. While I am more than happy to listen to and understand client's emotional background, I do not need extensive psychological/personal background to conduct Reiki sessions or receive intuitive insights.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been certified in levels 1, 2, 3, and Master & Teacher training in the Usui Reiki practice. My inclination for transformative work has led to me working with oracle decks, herbs, and the wisdom of the spiritual realms, and these tools help me to interpret and relay any supportive messages to individuals receiving Reiki.
