what to expect
"i have had an incredible transformation journey with andrea." - Tyler s.
Reiki relaxes us like nothing else - even the remote transmissions.
Rooted in the belief that to heal means to make whole,
Reiki (Universal Life Force Energy) treats body, mind & spirit.
Reiki helps us reset - to be more aligned with life and our true selves.
YOU CAN feel less tense, more balanced - even joyful
no matter what life throws at you.
Reiki sessions are NOT the magical waving of hands with crystals placed on your body.
It's a real transmission of energy - through light touch, breath work and sometimes even sound.
Sessions ALWAYS take place with the recipient fully clothed, lying down in a comfortable position.
During in-person-sessions, there is no pressure, manipulation or massage, sensitive and intimate areas 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.
My clients report sleeping better, feeling lighter, more at ease and at peace -
and... LIKE THEMSELVES AGAIN.
They feel calm and more focused,
which makes life and all its challenges easier to deal with and so much more pleasant.
Their anxiety, stress levels and sense of overwhelm decrease - and their outlook on life improves.
WE'LL FIND THAT SPACE FOR YOU TOO. LET'S RESET YOUR ENERGY.
Some days the pain was just too much...
I, too, woke very morning with the destructive effects of stress. Sickening overwhelm. Body debilitating anxiety.
I was smiling - living in my own hell striving to be girl everyone wanted to be.
Working with A list movie stars, writing speeches for the Consul General... and yes - my picture was even up on the Times Square NASDAQ building!
2015 MY LIFE RESET - in the most unexpected of places.
The first day as a student embarking on a Reiki course in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Up to that time I admit - I considered Reiki a waste of dollars and time.
Today, I (and my clients) can confirm in my most compelling of voices. IT. IS. NOT.
After years living with a chronically inflamed esophagus and grinding my teeth to the point of breaking,
making cups of coffee at 4:00 in the morning deprived of sleep,
my doctor declared me "super healthy" after a recent physical.
Message me here to see how I can help you in the next weeks, months, or even years
(yes, some of my clients have been with me for years ).
My Reiki journey
I am not how most people envision a Reiki Master.
Actually, I prefer to call myself a Reiki practitioner & teacher.
Mastery takes a lifetime to achieve - and I continue to work with several mentors and teachers on this path. I was trained in the two main traditions of Reiki practice, Usui Shiki Ryoho and Usui Reiki Ryoho, and I practice Reiki without any add-ons, bells and whistles (and daily on myself).
I am a graduate teacher of the International House of Reiki - and committed to present, practice and teach Reiki in a practical, authentic and pure way. Check out my profile on their website.
My Reiki Milestones
My Reiki training:
Kartika is my Indonesian name... and means "The one who brings the light."
I'm German-Indonesian... to explain the Asian look with the German accent.
Born and raised in Munich, Germany, in the seventies.
German precision is ingrained in me... working for the German government for 9 years trained me well. I even wrote speeches for the Consul General and had my picture on the Times Square NASDAQ building.
Before Reiki I didn't know how to deal with stress and anxiety: I suffered from a chronically inflamed esophagus and grinded my teeth to the point of breaking.
My brother is one of my favorite people in the whole world.
I check energy forecasts like others check the weather...
.... I even post about this sometimes on social media... follow me on FB & IG...
ASKING FOR HELP is one of the best lessons I learned.
In my 20s I used to interview celebrities when I wrote for a German newspaper. Bruce Willis was intimidating. Vin Diesel wanted to take me to lunch.
I overcame my driving anxiety in my late 30s.
As a kid I was terrified of dogs. Recently I helped a therapist write a book on Overcoming the Fear of Dogs
My first encounter with Reiki was not positive... I thought it was woo-woo
Thank Goodness for my teacher Frans Stiene (with me in the picture) who helps me understand, practice and teach Reiki as close to its Japanese roots as possible.
Also a big THANK YOU to Priya Tuli, who in Jakarta, Indonesia, was the first Reiki practitioner to show me that Reiki REALLY WORKS!
It took several sessions, but once my body could recover from all the tension and pain, my mind became clearer, and I realized that for most of my life I had been working against myself, instead of with myself.
Today: Reiki keeps me SANE!
