Usui Reiki Master/Practitioner, Karuna Reiki Practitioner
Dolly is from Albany, New York, originally having grown up on Long Island. She feels blessed by the opportunities to not only live in Asheville but to enjoy the deep sense of community offered at Asheville Community Yoga. Following long careers as a real estate appraiser, then another in service helping the elderly and disabled, Dolly discovered her true path as a Reiki Master and practitioner. She has studied and practiced in the Usui tradition. Additionally, Dolly has studied Karuna, Komyo and Shamanic Reiki, all of which enhance the depth and scope of her healing sessions.
Reiki as an energy practice was re-established by M. Usui in the early 1920’s. Reiki is the energy of the Universe. It balances the energy system in the body by clearing blockages which interfere with the body’s natural ability to heal. Healing may occur in one or several planes: physical, emotional, even spiritual. Although gentle, this healing can be profound. A client typically experiences a deep sense of relaxation and stress relief when Reiki is provided by a trained practitioner.
Reiki: Tuesdays from 2:30-7:30pm
A session typically entails laying comfortably and fully clothed on a massage table. Blankets and pillows offer support, as needed. Accommodation can be made for an individual who may not find a massage table suitable. Dolly is respectful of any personal space concerns expressed by her client. Typically, her hands are placed lightly on the client’s body or hover above areas in need of healing. Each person is unique and a combination of techniques may be appropriate and most effective. Communication between client and practitioner is always important.
It is with a deep sense of gratitude and wish for peace, love and light that Dolly offers her sessions.
