Are you suffering from anxiety and pain? Struggling with stress?
Looking for support and relief during times of crisis and overwhelm?
Or simply a different approach to make you feel better and keep you sane?
Through hands-on treatments, the application of mindfulness practices and consistent support,
my clients feel lighter and experience more clarity. Their stress levels and feelings of overwhelm decrease - and their outlook on life improves. So that they can be more balanced, focused, and at peace, which in turn, makes life (and all its challenges) easier to deal with and sets the foundation for personal (even professional) success.
I know first-hand how debilitating and all-consuming stress, overwhelm, and anxiety, can feel and be. This gnawing sense of everything is too much can be like living hell. But you are not alone. You can feel less tense and invite more peace and joy into your life. And the best part? The solutions are already within you.
You can learn how to get out of your head and tune into your body (in only 9 minutes!).

what to expect
Rooted in the belief that to heal means to make whole,
Reiki practice addresses body, mind, and spirit.
Reiki is a system of natural healing from Japan that is based on mindfulness practices and light touch. Sessions help promote relaxation, stimulate the body's innate healing response, and support personal development.
Reiki 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:
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.
Benefits of Reiki sessions and training:
My mission statement: To present, practice, and teach Reiki as a safe and credible healing modality that promotes relaxation, mindfulness, well-being, and resilience.

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 state of being, a way of life, a way of well-being that I am committed to share with others. Would you like to find out more? How about we have a little chat?
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

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.
