A Personal Message from Christina:

 

 

Hi, my name is Christina. I am a Birth Doula and Reiki Master Teacher. I am the owner of Scared Hands, LLC. My offerings for the network include:  

Reiki Healing, Crystal Reiki, and Birth Doula services.

Prior to being introduced to Reiki I worked in the accounting field for over 8 years. In 2016, I graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Science. Being the first of my mother’s children to have obtained a college degree, made this one of my greatest accomplishments. After graduation I thought I had my life mapped out for me. My goal was to secure a Human Resource Management position and be set. I was working at a company doing partial payroll and HR duties, so I just knew I had this in the bag. Yet, GOD had other plans for me.

After working at a corporation for 4 years I decided to leave and look for work elsewhere. I thought changing jobs was going to help fill a void I had. Ultimately it did not change a thing. I suffered from depression and anxiety off and on for several years. I was longing to feel complete. On the outside I had it all; great job, loving and supportive husband, beautiful kids, but deep down I was miserable and lost.

In 2018 I came across an article on mental health that had a section on energy healing. I had no idea what this was, but it caught my attention. I started getting regular Reiki sessions that same year and it changed my life drastically. My healing journey changed my whole life for the better. In 2019, I became Reiki level 1 & 2 attuned and began practicing on myself and family. In 2020, I became a Reiki Master Teacher and opened my own energy healing business. Soon after learning Reiki I became a Certified Birth Doula, I enjoy working with pregnant women and/or those wanting to conceive. Practicing both modalities has allowed me to share the gift of healing with so many others. I now get to use my past experiences to help others on their own journey. I have helped numerous clients overcome depression, anxiety, even heal from past traumas. I have helped clients learn to love who they truly are.

 

 This is my purpose, and it is so healing and fulfilling for me. I no longer feel a void, as this works has brought me fulfillment. It is my deepest desire to help the community become healthy, joyful, and complete. 

I hope to share this joy with many of you.

Love,

Chris

Sessions with Christina:

A session is usually 35 to 60 minutes long.  At your first session, I will describe the session and give you the opportunity to ask questions, discuss any particular problems or issues you are experiencing and what you are hoping to achieve from your session.  For the actual session, you will rest comfortably on a massage table or chair with your shoes removed (for In-Person Sessions).  Unlike massage therapy, no articles of clothing are removed and you are always fully clothed; loose, comfortable clothing is suggested.  During the session, I will move through specific standard Reiki hand positions beginning at the crown and proceeding down to your feet.  You may experience a warming sensation or a tingling during the session or nothing at all but deep relaxation. 

 

The session is very pleasant, relaxing and invigorating. 

During a Crystal Reiki session, intuitively chosen crystals are used in a variety of ways such as placing crystals directly on the body to balance chakras, crystal selenite wands may be used to clear and direct energy.
