Erika Boudreau-Barbee

Reiki Master

Erika started practicing Reiki in 2013, completing her Reiki Master certification from The International Center for Reiki Training in 2015. Reiki has influenced her visual art and performance practice by creating The Pain Project, a series dedicated to honoring physical pain by expressing pain as impression paintings and dance.

 

By giving pain an identity, we can begin healing. A session may include byosen scanning, aura clearing, and/or traditional Usui/Tibetan hand positioning. Reiki is used to promote relaxation and healing of the physical body and the spiritual, and is a wonderful accompaniment to other Eastern and Western medicines. 



Available Wednesday-Saturday
