    Andrea Kartika Deierlein's middle name literally means, the one who brings the light. Little did she know as a child that that would be her passion and full time practice. Andrea is a Reiki Practitioner in White Plains, New York. She has extensive training with some of the best teachers in the world and uses her practice to help facilitate healing within her patients. When the body calms down from the sometimes constant state of fight or flight, we allow healing to begin. Andrea also hosts an array of guided meditation events in the area.

    Michael A., Yonkers, N.Y.

    "Being in a Reiki session has given me a chance to take time to get my mind off of work and people that make me anxious. Nowadays people do not take the time for themselves in order to let go of stress. I have been stressed so much because of school assignments. When I am in a Reiki session, I let go and think about how nature takes me to a peaceful place. Andrea's soothing voice along with her music playlist take you deep into a calm, peaceful and quiet space. I look forward to attending more Reiki and Mindfulness sessions at the Yonkers Crestwood Branch Library."
