Red Leaf Wellness offers Reiki services in Edmonton, Alberta. Reiki is a Japanese form of alternative medicine also known as energy healing that employs the use of a technique called “palm healing” or “hands-on healing”. It is based on the idea that universal energy can be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient as a means to encourage emotional or physical healing.
Reiki is also a form of guided meditation that can promote a state of relaxation as well as physical, mental and emotional balance. Other benefits of Reiki include the release of tension from the body, immune system support, improved focus and better sleep.
Please take a look at the Reiki services we have available:
During a Reiki session, a safe and nurturing space promotes a receptive atmosphere to help clients connect with their healing process.
When you seek Reiki treatment, you lie comfortably on a massage bed with a blanket to maximize comfort.
Our Reiki practitioner will place their hands gently on or over your body, focusing on the body’s chakras and meridians. They will act as a conduit and allow the healing life force energy to flow through their hands.
When this Reiki energy is drawn into your body, it eases out any physical or emotional blocks that prevent the movement of higher vibrational energy from flowing freely through your body.
Not only is our practitioner drawing energy into your body, but the experience is also allowing you to connect with your innate ability to heal.
Reiki With Crystal Healing
Reiki can be used in conjunction with healing crystals to increase the healing nature of this service.
Crystals emit an energetic frequency that is among the highest vibrational frequencies on Earth. Our universe runs on the law of attraction, which means that similar frequencies are drawn to each other.
In the presence of an extremely high vibrational being, such as a crystal, your energetic state will shift to match that of the crystal.
When we combine crystal therapy with Reiki, we place seven different crystals over each of your chakras, allowing them to emit their high, healing vibes throughout your body and the treatment room.
More About Chakras
The term chakra is a Sanskrit word that means “disk” or “wheel” and refers to the energy centers in your body. You have seven chakras in your body and each spinning wheel of energy corresponds to certain nerve bundles and major organs.
The seven chakras run along your spine, starting at the base of the spine and extending to the crown of your head.
Chakras function best when they are open and balanced. If your chakras become blocked, you may experience physical or emotional symptoms related to the blocked chakra.
Reiki is a technique used to leverage universal energy into unblocking and balancing your chakras.

Shannon has a background in Psychology, is certified in Holistic Nutrition, has completed her level III Reiki training, and is on her way to becoming a Registered Massage Therapist as well. She uses this combination to form a multi-disciplinary approach to help her clients achieve holistic health, with an emphasis on mental health.
Mental Health is becoming increasingly important to prioritize as stress levels and mental health concerns continue to rise. Having struggled with her own mental health in the past, she has experienced this firsthand and continues to explore and learn new ways to practice self-care. This has led to a passion for helping people in supporting their mental health, ADHD, nervous system, gut, and hormone regulation.
Shannon believes that pain and other bodily symptoms, whether it be physical or mental, has a root cause and she uses this as a guide when treating her clients. With that in mind, she found a passion in nutrition and fell in love with Reiki. She believes that it is a powerful healing practice that is beneficial to everyone, always.
Shannon’s ultimate goal is to draw from her personal experience as well as her education to offer support and make a positive impact in the wellbeing of others. By cutting through the noise of what works and what doesn’t, she is able to provide her clients with effective tools and resources to help them help themselves more efficiently, whether that be through Reiki, Nutrition, or a combination of both.
In her nutrition practice, Shannon’s plans are tailored to each client as an individual. She understands that a cookie-cutter approach to nutrition is not realistic or effective for many people, especially those with mental health concerns.
Shannon’s priority is providing a safe space for you so that you can fully relax and let go. This means your time with her will be free of judgment, and full of kindness and support. Shannon genuinely looks forward to meeting you, and to learning from each other in her sessions with you.
