"Even though the body appears to be material, it is not. In the deeper reality, your body is a field of energy, transformation and intelligence."

– Deepak Chopra

Palliative and End-of-Life Reiki

In addition to being an End-of-Life Doula, I am a certified Usui Reiki Master Teacher, with additional training in energy work at the end of life. I use a combination of Reiki and other intuitive methods in my energy work for those receiving palliative and hospice care and their caregivers.

Reiki is gaining popularity as a way to support those in the process of dying. It involves using a light touch to transfer energy from one person to another, helping promote relaxation and create a sense of peace and well-being. Reiki has been shown to have numerous positive effects, ranging from physical pain relief to increased mental clarity and improved mood, and it can be beneficial for both the dying person and their caregivers to use this healing technique as part of end-of-life care.

Reiki can help relieve physical discomfort in the dying person by reducing pain and other sensations associated with the transition into death. In addition, it can also help reduce anxiety and depression by providing comfort and relaxation during a difficult time. Caregivers may experience similar benefits as they use Reiki to connect with the dying person on a deeper level while providing emotional support.

Reiki can be performed at any stage of the dying process. My sessions are tailored to each person and their specific needs, and are available at home or in facility. $75/session (includes travel within Monadnock Region)

If you would like more information about my palliative/end-of-life or caregiver Reiki services, please don’t hesitate to contact me.


Reiki is an energetic healing art with its roots in Japan. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word Rei, which means “universal life,” and Ki, which means “energy.” Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage, nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work. Learn more: https://iarp.org/learn-about-reiki/

Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone can connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen their energy and help others. It is believed that a person’s ki or energy should be strong and free-flowing. When this is true, a person’s body and mind are in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked, it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.
