About reiki and how i help my clients
Reiki is a system of natural healing from Japan that is based on mindfulness practices and light touch. Reiki sessions help promote relaxation, stimulate the body's innate healing response, and support personal development. For greater benefit, recipients are encouraged to become active participants in their own healing journey. Rooted in the belief that to heal means to make whole, Reiki addresses body, mind and spirit.

Reiki practice helps us become and be more aligned with the flow of life and our nature.
A natural, non-invasive healing practice, Reiki sessions stimulate the body's relaxation and self-healing responses through the light touch of the practitioner’s hands. In addition to improving overall health and well-being, people turn to Reiki when coping with life’s stresses as well as for support during health and emotional challenges and medical treatments.
Recipients and practitioners have reported:
A more positive outlook.
Better ability to deal with anxiety and stress.

Reiki sessions always take place with the recipient fully clothed on a massage table. There is no pressure, manipulation or massage, and sensitive and intimate areas of the body are never touched. Please note that Reiki is no substitute for conventional medical or psychological care. There are no claims or guarantees of healing or curing disease.

Hello. I am Andrea Kartika Deierlein.
For many years, I was one of those walking zombies on Metro North going into the City at 8 a.m., returning 12 or more hours later. I was exhausted, drained, and nasty. To get through the days of my job in German government relations I fueled myself with caffeine and sugar. To deal with the physical pain of all this tension and stress, I popped pain killers like candy. No wonder that I couldn’t sleep and developed a chronically inflamed esophagus, grinding my teeth until some of them broke. During that time one of my colleagues offered to share Reiki with me at our lunch break. To be honest, I didn't think much of it and didn't feel anything.
Then I moved to Jakarta, Indonesia, where I have always wanted to live. But despite the change of scenery and lifestyle, I was still so much in my head that I continued to repeat my same patterns of perfectionism and pushing myself too hard in my job as Director of Marketing & Communications. Thanks to a friend, I began to join a meditation group and was re-introduced to Reiki. I signed up for a session and experienced the relaxation and relief I desperately needed. It took several sessions, but once my body could recover from all the tension and pain, my mind became clearer, and I realized that all this time I had been working against myself, instead of with myself.
When I took my first Reiki class in 2015, a switch turned in my head. For the first time in my life, somebody gave me permission to be kind to myself. I am now realizing every day that (self) compassion is more important than functioning and impressing with achievements. Reiki has been my lifesaver, what keeps me sane and well every day. My doctor even declared me “super healthy” after my recent physical. Reiki is a way of well-being that I am committed to share with others. Curious how Reiki can help you, too?
My Reiki Training
My official title is Reiki Master. But since I believe that it takes a lifetime to achieve mastery, I prefer to call myself a Reiki practitioner & teacher. I was trained in the two main traditions of Reiki practice, Usui Shiki Ryoho and Usui Reiki Ryoho, and practice Reiki without any add-ons, bells and whistles. Committed to present, practice and teach Reiki in a practical, authentic and pure way, I am a graduate teacher of the International House of Reiki and continue to work with several mentors and teachers. Check out my profile on the International House of Reiki website here.
Here you can find a description of my services. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
Individual Reiki Sessions
What to expect during a Reiki session.
Sessions range from 60 to 90 minutes. You are laying fully clothed on a massage table. I will place my hands lightly on or near your body on your head and shoulders, torso, legs and feet. The position sequence and duration varies based on your needs. Book your session now.
Many of my clients are learning to practice Reiki on themselves.
In addition to group trainings, I also teach Reiki self-care one-on-one for those who want to take their self-healing into their own hands. You will learn the basic hand positions for treating yourself and meditation exercises for focus. Send me an email for more information.
Meditation. Mindfulness. Reiki.
I am an experienced facilitator for meditation and mindfulness workshops as well as introductory Reiki programs in public and corporate settings. Send me an email so we can explore this option for your group or company.
