Business name: Open Hands Reiki
Products and/or services: From owner Maureen Rivelle, RN, RMT: “I am providing Reiki sessions to clients on a one-on-one basis in my comfortable Edmonds office, as well as Reiki classes so people can become Reiki practitioners themselves at whichever
level interests them. Reiki is a Japanese technique for relaxation that promotes deep healing at all levels of our beings — physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. It’s done through touch or in the aura around the client. A gentle, soothing energy flows from the hands to the client, releasing tension and fostering overall well-being.
How long in business: Since January 2014
Unique/interesting features about the business: “My RN licensure makes my work and my perspective unique in that I come from a medical background and am now doing Reiki energy work for deep healing. I find the melding of the two worlds comes very naturally to me and is helpful for clients, as well. I’ve been practicing Reiki on myself, family and friends since 2007 and I now have the opportunity to bring my passion to the rest of my community.
Some unique aspects of Reiki are:
• Reiki is one of the easiest healing methods to practice and can be learned in one 8 hour class.
• Reiki is not a belief system in itself and is practiced by people of different religions and faiths
all over the world.
• Reiki is spiritually led life force energy, so the practitioner doesn’t need to know the problems
of the client before a session.
• The client does not have to believe in Reiki for it to work.”
