The inception of Inner Focus Holistic Healing materialized shortly after experiencing my first Reiki Session as a client over seventeen years ago. The experience for me was life-changing. I had gone to see Reiki Master David Pilz, formerly located in Chilliwack BC -- just outside of Vancouver. There, I experienced a Reiki Treatment for the first time. David said my energy seemed low and offered to help me with this problem. My energy was indeed low and I felt like I had been dragged through the mud. I was very willing to see what he could do for me.
I climbed up on his healing table and laid down as instructed. I had no idea of what was about to happen but I felt very relaxed and at ease and was willing to receive this Reiki Healing. The next hour flew by as if it were only ten minutes. It was the most incredible experience of my life.
To try and put into words what I experienced during my very first Reiki Treatment is not possible because I experienced it at so many different levels. To make a long story short, this was the beginning of a major change in my life. From that day forward, I began a new journey. A journey which began in the year 2000 and has brought me here to today. To Inner Focus.
I studied Reiki Level I, II and III under Usui Reiki Master David Pilz and went on to study Reiki Master Level IV under the guidance of Usui Reiki Master Rick Rivard of Threshold Resources. I also studied Therapeutic Touch with the BCTTN and attended regular Therapeutic Touch Training Sessions for a number of years. I continually participate in Vancouver Reiki Exchanges and Reiki Shares on a monthly basis.
I volunteered my Therapeutic Touch services at an Extended Care Home every Tuesday morning for a year and a half until the home was closed down. Working with the elderly was very rewarding and I continually learned with every session.
I continue to patiently await the opportunity to volunteer my Reiki and Therapeutic Touch services to the Palliative Care Ward at Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver BC.
