It’s all about the universe.

If you’re like me and believe things like “everything happens for a reason,” you’ll probably be interested in learning more about Reiki and energy healing, some of the lesser-known gems of the wellness lifestyle. I’ve never experienced it myself, but I have two very good friends whose mothers are Reiki masters, so I’ve been curiously attuned to it.

Speaking of attuning, I had a brief conversation yesterday with my Reiki Master Angela, who I’m meeting today. She explained that in order to access the Reiki (Universal Life Force) energy, one must be trained in the Reiki attunement process, which involves a “ceremony of spirit.”

Angela practices her healing at Vada Spa in New York City’s West Village, where I’ll be having my Reiki session today. According to her personal website,, she describes Reiki as a Japanese healing technique that utilizes deep relaxation to calm the mind, reduce stress, relax the mind and ease the spirit. The “divine life-force” energy is brought to you through light touch over your clothes.

Reiki works by “channeling the appropriate frequency into the body to bring the damaged area(s) back to a harmonious state of being.” Angela prefaced she’d be asking me questions about my goals, concerns, my emotional and physical fatigue, any life crises I’m going through or decisions I need to make.
