Several years ago, I had been ill for over a year with no relief from western medicine. I began looking into a more holistic approach to healing. Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and diet really helped. I dived into research on how acupuncture worked and became drawn into learning more about energy healing. Little did I know that my desire to understand would lead me to my calling. My name is Joyce Magner, and I am a Certified Reiki Master Teacher.
After helping me with my illness, Jennifer at Indigo Dragon Center suggested that I develop this part of me that was budding. I recognized that I had empathic abilities and was looking for a way to help myself and others.
A friend of Indigo Dragon was hosting a Reiki One training. I decided to go for it! I knew it would be an excellent way to help keep me grounded and benefit my overall wellbeing.
I signed up for the training which I knew was a little out of my comfort zone. And honestly, it was the best thing that I could have done for myself. I learned the history, the benefits, and how to treat myself and others during that first training. At that time, I had no idea what the future held for me and that I would now be a Reiki Practitioner at Indigo Dragon Center. I feel blessed to be able to work with people of all ages, men, women, and children. I personally witness how Reiki has helped people physically, mentally and spiritually.
For instance, I had one lovely lady come for a treatment that was experiencing the inability to sleep, anxiety, intense pain in the neck and back and she was feeling defeated. During the treatment, I was able to lead her through a short breathing exercise to help her relax. As I worked to clear her chakras and move any stagnant energy, she was able to experience pain relief before the treatment was over. She contacted me a few days later to share that she was experiencing the best sleep in a long time and she was still pain-free and was not experiencing any anxiety.
I am so excited to share Reiki with others that I am offering a Reiki Level 1 Training on October 6th and 7th. This is a simple Japanese healing technique that I will be teaching in a relaxed, stress-free setting with ample time for hands-on learning. You will leave understanding the history of Reiki, the concept of energy healing and the ability to give self-treatments as well as treating others and much more with this hands-on learning experience.
