The Art of Reiki

What is Reiki?  Reiki is a Japanese healing technique...a non-invasive "laying on of hands"  for relaxation and stress reduction that promotes healing through balancing the system.  

I like to think of it as feng shui for the body.

A year ago, renowned cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz ranked Reiki #1 among his Ultimate Alternative Medicine Secrets, revealing he often incorporated it into his open heart surgeries.  "Reiki is one of my favorites, we've been using it for years in the Oz family, and we swear by it."

A dear friend of mine said she felt like she was getting the best massage ever...from the inside out.

The founder, Dr. Usui's philosophy was

Just for today do not anger.
Just for today do not worry.
Just for today honor your parents, grandparents and all those before them.
Earn your living with an open heart.
Always be grateful for everything.

A Reiki Master of five years, I can perform this service for you at my home, your home, workplace or remotely. Sessions are $35 for one half hour and $60 for a full hour.*

Do you have an important presentation, audition or deadline looming?  Then a tune-up may be just the thing for you.

Christianne Tisdale has an amazing gift, and a Reiki session with her is an extraordinary experience. I felt an incredible sense of calm and peace come over me during the session -- had one of the best night's sleep I've had in ages that night -- and woke up the next morning minus aches and pains I'd had for ages and feeling a very deep sense of calm. If you've had Reiki, you will really appreciate sessions with Christianne. And if you've never had Reiki, it's a wonderful introduction that will make you into a huge fan of this bodywork practice and of this extraordinary practitioner. ~Will Schwalbe

Tiz's touch is spot on - an educational healing experience!  ~Christa Justus

As a licensed reflexologist and as someone trained in physical and energy work, Tiz is who I go to when I need reiki either in person or remotely. I not only trust her as an accomplished practitioner, but I trust her as an empathic and compassionate friend whose main spiritual goal is to heighten the aura of others. She has helped me numerous times, most recently through a very troublesome first trimester. I am absolutely convinced that the immediate improvement both in my and my baby's health were a direct result of Tiz's expert remote reiki work. Christianne is the real deal and I am forever grateful to her for being so generous with her gifts. ~Donna Lynne Champlin
