Heather Andrew

Level 2 Reiki Practitioner

Heather Andrew

From a young age, I always knew I wanted to help people. I was very empathic and sensitive to the energy and emotions of others. My introduction to Reiki started when I was a teenager. At that time, my family dog was diagnosed with incurable cancer. Surgical intervention and cancer treatment was not an option, and the medication only did so much to ease her pain. My mom went in search of more options to help improve my dog’s quality of life, and bring her comfort before she died. My mom discovered Reiki and we saw noticeable improvements in my dog’s energy levels and pain after she received Reiki treatments. My dog eventually passed away from her illness, but Reiki was a tremendous comfort to our family because we knew it helped our beloved dog to feel more comfortable are cared for at the end of her life. I realized that if Reiki could have such a profound impact on my dog, it could also bring incredible comfort and healing to people too.

 

I decided to take my Level 1 Reiki training, and ten years later, I took my Level 2 training as well. I have noticed that Reiki has helped me be even more attuned to the energy and emotions of others, and to be more regulated and in control of my own energy. I have been able to use Reiki to help loved ones who are experiencing physical and emotional pain. Interestingly, I often find that other people with heightened energy sensitivity are drawn to me, even before knowing that I am an energy worker.
