Coming soon in St. Paul: I have been providing these services in Colorado for years, but I recently moved to St. Paul and am working with the City of St. Paul to obtain any required licenses. 
Reiki is a gentle practice that supports relaxation and helps bring balance to the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Each of us has electro-magnetic fields and subtle energies that can come out of balance as a result of stress, illness, or simply from everyday life. Each of us also has an innate ability to heal and return to balance. Reiki is a special method of supporting that innate healing ability.

Reiki can have a profound effect on the recipient’s sense of well-being. Reiki is extremely relaxing. After a session, many recipients report a great sense of calmness and balance. This relaxation response has powerful effects of its own. Studies have shown that Reiki can benefit people who are tense, stressed, anxious, or fatigued. Studies also have shown that Reiki can help people manage chronic or acute pain. Reiki supports the well-being of persons undergoing other medical procedures, including treatment for cancer. 

During a Reiki session, the practitioner's hands may rest lightly on the recipient or they may be in the area around the recipient. The recipient remains clothed, and no pressure or manipulation is involved. For those who prefer, an entire session can be done without touch. 

Reiki works in harmony with conventional medical care. It can be used as a complementary therapy alongside Western medical treatments. Reiki is not a substitute for medical treatment under the care of a licensed physician, but will not interfere with that care.

Susan is a Reiki Master Teacher, as is her husband, Jon Bernhardt. They each provide Reiki sessions, and also can jointly give Reiki for a more powerful session. They also hold Reiki training classes, from Reiki I through the Master Teacher level. They both have volunteered as Reiki providers with Lifespark Cancer Resources, a non-profit organization that provides Reiki treatments free of charge to people with cancer and their caregivers. To find out more about Reiki and their Reiki classes, please visit
