About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I have studied and experimented with Reiki extensively because I felt that I had to know it inside and out in order to utilize it fully for the service of my clients. If you do something as important as bringing health and well being to other human beings, I feel it is your duty to be up on the very latest information on whatever technique/s you use. I continue to do ongoing studies of other healing modalities and to open myself even more to Spirit.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I am a people person. I love talking to people and helping them to understand what it is that they are struggling with, then help them to come up with viable solutions to make their lives better, and to get to a place where they can fully be who they are meant to be. I find it very rewarding to help someone see how much they needed a rest, how tense they were before they came in for a session, and how relaxed they can be after a session. Or to empower someone to help themselves or their loved one by connecting them to Reiki in Reiki Classes so that they can self-treat when they need it, treat their child or partner,o r send distant Reiki to an ailing relative or friend that they cannot physically be there for. It takes away that awful feeling of futility, that helplessness of "I can't do anything" and empowers you because YOU CAN make a difference, a tangible difference, by sending them Reiki or joining a Distant Healing Group to send Reiki to situations like the horrific natural disasters in Japan or our environment.

    After 4 separate Emotion Code sessions with Patty Penner, my adopted cat has been freed from 31 trapped, negative emotions, one Heart Wall and one Hidden Heart Wall. He is friendlier, cuddlier, sleeps through the night, enjoys or ignores sounds that previously bothered him and is learning how to purr. Thank you Patty for doing Emotion Code work on animals. It is amazing what a pet owner can learn and your ability to heal an animal physically and emotionally is a blessing. Heidi Waddell, Verona, WI

    Patty is an amazing Reiki healer. I saw her regularly for several months and felt like she helped decreased my stress levels and increased my feelings of peace. I'm starting to see her again now and have no doubt I'll have similar results.

    Patty provides a safe and nurturing environment. She is extremely knowledgeable , attentive and I always feel light and relaxed after a session. She is well-versed in Reiki and knows a great deal about healing energy. The added tools she sometimes incorporates have made the experience even more incredible!

    Thank you for your lovely review Nancy. I feel an educated client is a more relaxed and receptive client, so I do like to explain a lot about what Reiki is and what to expect from a session beforehand. I am also a Crystal Healer, and try to bring some of that wisdom into the mix, if I am so guided.

    I have been seeing Patty and joining in her Reiki shares, I am a Master Reiki Practitioner. I am also a Reflexologist, we share information and treat each other. Patty is very good at her profession and an excellent teacher. I would definitely refer people to her for Reiki and definitely for classes ! She is straight forward and very real, follow her advice and you will see a difference in your health.

    Thanks for wonderful review Melba. Same goes for what you do as a Reflexologist. I refer people to you also, very knowledgeable about her profession and very sensitive to peoples needs. Also very intuitive about what is going on so with someone so the client gets the bigger picture. Love those hot stones between the toes followed by that hot towel - just divine!


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First the client contacts me about availability and maybe to clarify some questions about my services. When they come in for their appointment they are required to fill out a "Permission To Treat" form, and then we go over why they came to see. This helps me to help them decide what kind of service that I do would best fit their needs, based on what is going on with them physically, emotionally and spiritually. Then I perform the service/s and afterwards we talk about their experience during the service and what guidance I may have received for them during the service, or where they were taking in the most energy or the least, where there were blockages and releases, etc. After that we discuss further treatment options.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am continually learning more and more ways to use Reiki as well as taking classes in other healing modalities that compliment Reiki like Crystal Healing and Healing Touch. I am certified to Level One in Crystal Healing in two lineages and have taken extensive training in other forms of Crystal Healing to further my skills. I am also a Karuna Reiki® Master Teacher and offer Karuna Reiki® classes in addition to Usu Reiki classes. I am also a Level I Healing Touch student (you do not become a practitioner in this modality for years and there are 5 levels). I believe one should never stop learning - there is so much to learn and I find it all exciting and fascinating! I recently became an Emotion Code Practitioner as well. Additionally, I am an Intuitive Life/Career Coach and Grief Coach.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
I charge by the hour ($45), not by the session type or whatever add on's we decide together would best fit your issues at each session. A typical session is 2 hours minimum, and I don't count the first 15 minutes of talking at the front end of the session. Reiki Classes: Level I - $225.00, Level II- $325.00 and IIIa (Master Practitioner Level IIIb) - $425.00. Reiki Master Teacher internship program is $1,500.00. Karuna Reiki® is $400 for each level of training (there are two - I & II together and II and IV together) Practitioner Level and Master Level) Reiki sessions can also be paid for in packages (hourly)..
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I believe you are called to do this kind of work. For me it was a natural progression from T'ai Chi instructor to Reiki Practitioner. Both utilize energy, some say the same kind of energy (universal life force energy). My journey as a healer began when my T'ai Chi instructor told me I was "doing healing work" when I took over her T'ai chi classes when she retired. T'ai chi is a form of ancient Chinese medicine, as is Qigong and Acupuncture. This got me thinking about the fact that I was in essence a healer and then Reiki just sort of popped out at me. Someone in my T'ai chi class was Reiki and gave me a session. I just had a "knowing" that I had to learn it, and after I took several classes, had that same knowing (needed to teach it), just like the knowing I had with wanting to teach T'ai Chi. T'ai Chi helped me to recover my health and sanity after a long protracted illness that nothing and no one couldn't heal.
What types of customers have you worked with?
My main focus two fold - performing Reiki /Crystal Healing/Healing Touch sessions for my clients, some of which choose to take classes and become Reiki as a way to empower themselves and take their healing into their own hands. Teaching Reiki classes is the other part of my focus. I connect others to the Divine Energy that is Reiki so that they can channel it for themselves and others for the benefit of all. It is not unusual for a Reiki session with me to last for two, three, even four hours This is unusual and particular to me. I also spend a lot of time just talking with my clients. People just naturally open up to me and talk. I am a good listener and have good, sound information that can help them because I have experienced so much in my own life in the way of illnesses (both physical and emotional) and trauma. So many people just need someone to listen to their story. It is said to be very very healing to just be able to tell your story to a third party, someone who has no involvement with your family or the other people in your life.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Call and talk to any practitioner.you are interested in seeing first. I highly advise you to make an appointment to meet them and see if you feel you that they are a good match. Not everyone is going to be a good fit for you, their belief systems and philosophies may defer greatly from yours. If they have testimonials, read them. Have other people seen them and made comments about how much their work helped them? Look over their websites carefully. How long have they been in practice and how much other training do they have? Also find out if they do any community service, or if they are willing to work with peoples financial situations such as offering sliding scale fees (I do).
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That it is just as relaxing and stress reducing as getting a massage, if not more so. More than not, my clients fall into a very deep sleep while receiving Reiki which we call "Reiki Slumber". We know that deeper healing takes place when our client can allow themselves to go deep like this as it activates your bodies own natural ability to heal - you have a natural healing process in your body that can only be activated when you are at rest (completely calm, relaxed and at rest). Reiki gives you the opportunity to rest so that your natural healing process can kick in and enhances it. It also gets your ego out of way. Some people have even told me it's better than a massage because it doesn't hurt! One of the main benefits of Reiki is it's stress reducing abilities but it also brings the body, mind and energy field into balance, and opens, clears and balance all the chakras. There is nothing "woo woo" about this work. It is very calming, and soothing and can relieve pain, help you sleep better and so much more.
