Reiki (pronounced Ray-kee) is a Japanese technique of healing touch that promotes holistic healing for the mind, body, and spirit. Reiki is a powerful energy healing modality that is both gentle and incredibly effective for restoring optimal health.
How Does Reiki Work?
The Reiki practitioner gently places her hands on or above the client’s body and channels healing energy to remove energy blocks and restore balance in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual components of your being. Reiki energy intuitively works on the level that needs healing the most.
- Our bodies are made up of Qi, or life force energy.
- Life force energy runs through energy centers and pathways in the body called Meridians and chakras.
- Qi also flows outside and the around the body within the aura.
- Reiki facilitates the movement of Qi to maintain a healthy flow of energy.
- Reiki energy flows through the Reiki practitioners hands to the client.
What Can Reiki Heal?
Reiki aids in healing and alleviating a wide spectrum of heath issues. Adding Reiki to your healing regime will improve the results of any medical treatment and reduce negative side effects of chemotherapy, medications, and surgery.
Reiki, in addition to professional mental health services, facilitates profound healing for emotional trauma. Using Reiki will help ease the emotional upheaval often caused by major life changes such as birth/death of a loved one, loss or gain of employment, relocation, marriage/divorce or break ups, diagnosis or re-occurance of cancer or disease.
- Chronic pain
- Migraines, sinusitis
- Arthritis, back pain
- Sports injuries, sprains, breaks

- Side effects of chemotherapy
- Morning sickness
Emotional and Spiritual Issues:*
- Anxiety, depression
- End of life care and transition

*Please note: chronic illnesses, extreme or repeated traumas, anxiety distorders and the like, often require on-going sessions over a period of time to establish a full clearing.
Anna uses a unique, integrative approach to energy healing that draws from a multitude of various healing modalities and techniques that include Reiki, Integrated Energy Therapy®, Tuning Fork Therapy, Aromatherapy, Crystal Therapy, Polarity Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Emei Qigong and Donna Eden Energy Medicine.
What can I expect from a Reiki Session?
Each Reiki appointment lasts for 90 minutes.
Anna takes time to get to know you and learn more about your reasons for seeking Reiki therapy. Next, a 60 minute Reiki treatment, including 5 minutes of grounding, takes place. Lastly, Anna spends 15-20 minutes to discuss your healing experience and provides a detailed assessment. In addition, energy exercises are suggested to help you maintain and achieve a healthy, balanced state of being.
Reiki is preformed while the client is fully clothed on a massage table. Anna will lightly place her hands on or above the client’s body to facilitate the flow of Reiki life-force energy. Based the client’s level of comfort, Anna will incorporate various healing techniques throughout the session.
What will I feel during a Reiki treatment?
Every person has a unique experience during a Reiki treatment. Most clients report feeling extremely relaxed, at peace, and safe.
It is common for individuals to experience a range of emotions as stored negative energy is healed and released from the body and aura; this may include giggling or crying.
Physically, clients will feel ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ energy from Anna’s hands. As the body relaxes and shifts back into its natural state of health and vitality it is common for recipients to experience muscle twiching, involuntary muscle jerks or tingling sensations.
Often, clients will enter a dream-like state and report seeing loved ones, animals or having journeys to new or familiar places.
What can I expect after a Reiki treatment?
Reiki healing continues AFTER the session is complete. As your vibrational level rises, energetic shifts may continue to be experienced the following days, weeks or months. Anna welcomes any calls or questions after your session.
When a client participates in their healing process with intention and conscious change, Reiki treatments will facilitate profound levels of healing.
Please note: chronic illnesses, extreme or repeated traumas, anxiety distorders and the like, often require on-going sessions over a period of time to establish a full clearing.

Anna is one of the most gifted healers I’ve worked with! I have had personal sessions with her that were transforming and I am now certified by her for Reiki level II. Anna is truly amazing! Thank you so very much!
– Lisa, Los Angeles, CA
I was in desperate need to find help for my sciatica, which is no joy ride. I experienced Reiki for the first time with Anna. Thanks to her, I now fully realize the benefits and power of this healing treatment. Anna’s approach and personalization always put me at ease and made me feel relaxed. I’ve been thrilled with the results in both my pain relief and spiritual uplifting. Her expertise in energy healing shows. It’s amazing to see how quickly she can be in tune with your body and other aspects of your life.

My experience with Anna came through my husband. He was experiencing various health issues and I saw his symptoms alleviated first hand. I was experiencing debilitating shoulder pain, which I was told by my physician was virtually untreatable. I had never tried Reiki before, but seeing the amazing results for my husband I was open to trying it. The moment I met Anna I was instantly at ease. Her energy was peaceful and positive. What I experienced in my session was not just an alleviation of my physical pain, but an alleviation of my emotional pain as well. That session and sessions since can only be described as Healing experiences. I would encourage anyone who is searching for physical and emotional peace and calm to book a session with her. The experience will be transcendent.
– Crystal, Rancho Cucamonga, CA
Having battled with depression and anxiety for years, I decided to look into an alternative healing method, Reiki. Not knowing what to expect, Anna took time to educate me on the healing method. Per my request, Anna verbalized all the prayers and described the process throughout the session, allowing me to fully open my heart and mind. Her gentle and loving disposition created a safe environment, which helped me face the source of my grief. This experience was unlike any I’ve ever had through therapy, prayer or meditation. Thank you, Anna! You’ve made a believer out of me.
– Vanessa, San Francisco, CA
Anna is amazing! I have arrived to sessions stressed, frazzled and left calm and at peace. Anna’s intuition guides her to where you accumulate stress. I have had chronic hip pain and she was able to figure out the root cause of the pain. Anna is professional, and attentive. I have also had the opportunity to take her Reiki I and II class. The classes are small and thorough, in which she is generous with time. Thank you, Anna!
– Elia, Los Angeles, CA
I have been getting reiki treatments for many years from other practitioners. I decided to try Anna because she was so close to my home. I LOVE the way I feel when I walk in. She talks to you beforehand about your healing and I just felt the peace, love and compassion radiating from Anna. I instantly felt safe and taken care of. She is extremely intuitive and knew exactly what was going on with any imbalances in my body and even sends me home with “homework” and exercises I can do at home to stay balanced. She is truly gifted at what she does. I feel SO peaceful when I leave and I’m so grateful to have found Anna at Reiki Restore. Thank you, thank you, thank you Anna!!!
– Tina, Los Angeles, CA
I can’t say enough good things about Anna; she has completely changed my life. I’ve been an energy junkie for about a year and a half. I’ve received Reiki from multiple practitioners and Anna is hands down my favorite. My body, mind and spirit have never experienced greater peace than when I’m on her table. I know she’s human and all, but I have yet to detect a scrap of EGO in her! She has a feminine (not girly) and timeless (not old) presence about her – love, humility, kindness and compassion just pour out from her smile, her eyes, and most of all her magical Reiki hands!
Speaking of Reiki hands, I had the opportunity to take her Reiki class today. In usual Anna-style, she went above and beyond my expectations. I can’t wait to get a table and start giving my husband Reiki. I am so grateful for her incredible class and I recommend it to everyone! She’s an amazing teacher and healer. She’s a born nurturer and it comes through in both her Reiki treatments and her Reiki classes. She makes a pretty mean coffee cake too.
Oh, she also incorporates Chi-Gong, crystals, Essential Oils, Sound Therapy and her spot-on intuition. She gives me things to work on at home in between sessions and the results have been awesome. I’m so grateful for Anna and the work she does.
– Nicki, Los Angeles, CA
After my first Reiki treatment I am a full believer in its calming and positive effects. It was a truly awakening experience to feel some type of connectedness within my body that I haven’t felt since I was a child. I’m pretty excited to incorporate my new-found love of Reiki in my future endeavors. Thanks Anna!
– Eric, San Jose, CA
I was looking for something to help with negative, angry feelings at work that were clouding far too much of my life.I found Anna through an online search and sought her Reiki expertise. Sessions are relaxing – yet energizing. Anna has given me not only the tools to deal with these problems but methods to dispel these feelings. As I continue with Reiki sessions, I find it easier to let go of the negativity and anger and focus on positive things that make me happy. It does take work on my part too, but Anna’s guidance is key. Highly, happily recommended.
– Elisabeth, Los Angeles, CA
Anna is amazing – she is so gentle and uses aromatherapy! I went to her for my allergies (which are always horrible in the Spring). I’m trying to use natural remedies as much as I can – and so far Reiki and the netti pot have been working surprisingly well. I couldn’t believe that my sinus headache was gone at the end of the session, and I had so much energy! I definitely recommend seeing Anna – Your body will thank you for it.
– Sarah, Burbank, CA
My energy level has been low for some time and I decided to get some Reiki treatment to help balance my energy centers. Anna was very helpful and understanding when we discussed how I had been feeling and what was going on in my life. I can say that my energy level has been increased tremendously and I have been sleeping much better. I’m getting clearer on how I had been allowing my emotions to dictate how I feel and thanks to Anna and her Reiki techniques I’m finally on a path to well-being. I plan to include Reiki treatments from time to time.
– Margaret, Los Angeles, CA
I came to Anna for low energy and also had a cold. Her treatment was amazing. I felt relaxed and energized at the same time and my cold symptoms were gone the next day!

Anna is an intuitive empath who has always sought to alleviate the suffering of other people and animals. Anna is a certified Usui Tibetan Reiki Master/Teacher, who is passionately devoted to energy healing for people and horses. In addition to Reiki, Anna is certified in Integrated Energy Therapy ® and Tuning Fork Therapy. Her unique and integrative approach to energy healing also draws from Polarity Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Aromatherapy, Emei Qigong, Sound Therapy, and Donna Eden Energy Medicine.
Anna’s formal introduction to energy healing came while she was completing her Master’s Degree in International Development and Social Change at Clark University in 2009. She began practicing a form of Chinese moving meditation called Emei Qigong and using qigong healing techniques on family and friends. When Anna’s mother was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma (bone marrow disease) she learned Reiki and gave her treatments to reduce the negative side effects associated with chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. Reiki reduces nausea, neuropathy, pain, and emotional distress that often accompany chemotherapy.
An Iowa native, Anna studied Usui Tibetan Reiki with two Reiki Teachers in Iowa, Mary Nicol, MD and MaryAnn Lindsley. Nicol and Lindsley have over 13 years of healing experience in hospitals, clinics and their private practice. The fine-tuned skills and techniques passed down to Anna from Nicol and Lindsley are invaluable. Not only do they provide results for Reiki recipients but they are also taught during Reiki courses offered by Anna. She expresses deep gratitude and appreciation for the ability to provide and teach Reiki healing to others.
Prior to her work in energy healing, Anna spent time working, traveling and studying around the globe. Anna’s participation in international development efforts are evident through her travel and work in India, China, El Salvador, and Peru where she researched and addressed issues such as child and sex trafficking, living conditions of incarcerated women, the impact of tourism on local communities, and taught English.
