About Rachel Carey
I've been a Master-Level Reiki practitioner & teacher since 2007. Through my efforts in building my practice, as well as extensive volunteer work at places like UCSD Medical Center (Bannister Family House) & various charitable events, I have had the honor & pleasure of working with hundreds of people at every age & stage of life, and with many different conditions.
I've worked with everyone from newborn infants to people who were transitioning into death, as well as with animals that weren't responding to their vet-recommended healing protocols or were having "behavioral problems" at home. I've also conducted house healings where a child who was afraid to be alone in his room was finally comfortable enough to play and sleep there. In all of those encounters, I have been awed by the power of Reiki to bring healing to any situation.
My first experience with Reikii was several years ago. I had severe laryngitis that lasted about 4 months, and ENT's (Ear Nose Throat specialists) couldn't figure out what was wrong. At a friend's suggestion, I tried Reiki, and after only one session, the laryngitis was gone.
Several years later, I had severe pain from whiplash injuries resulting from an auto accident. I'm usually very optimistic, grounded, & resourceful, but navigating that experience was beyond my coping skills. After only one Reiki session, I was restored to my emotional center, which enabled me to cope with the pain and begin to heal.
I was so impressed that I decided to learn Reiki and began doing daily treatments on my neck for pain. Little did I know that Reiki was working to heal my thyroid too. I'd had hypothyroidism (low thyroid function) for ten years and was taking synthroid (thyroid hormone replacement medication) daily. I am now medication free - after being told I'd be on it for the rest of my life. Multiple tests have confirmed that my thyroid is healed. Life brings amazing gifts in unexpected packages!
Some ask about Reiki Lineage (who taught you, who taught your teacher's teacher, and back...). I was trained in Usui Shiki Ryoho*, but I have no distinct lineage. I respect the concerns of those who question pedigree, but I feel that, ultimately, all of our lineages stem back to Mikao Usui, as he was the person who re-introduced Reiki to the modern world.
After learning Reiki, I was later called to spend a year taking intuitive energy healing classes that were based in the teachings & techniques of the Berkeley Psychic Institute. I also took classes in animal communication, shamanism and emotional wisdom as I've continued to grow and learn.
I've found that Reiki exponentially amplifies the power of the techniques I learned in those classes, and it can also be easily incorporated into many healing techniques.
Reiki is the core and foundation of my practice, but I also use the other intuitive healing techniques that I know or am called to use when in session, including any intuitive guidance I receive which may be specific to you and your healing.
I will also ask my guides for any information that will help you on your path. Then, I will share that information with you at the end of the session. Please know that I set the intention to only see or know what you are ready and/or willing to share. I will not actively search for problems or secrets.
*Usui Shiki Ryoho means "Usui Method of Healing". Micao Usui is credited with rediscovering Reiki and then teaching it to others.
PLEASE NOTE (for sessions & classes at my home):
1. I have two wonderful cats, so if you are allergic, please take whatever you need to better manage your allergy.
2. I do not have a waiting room in my home. If you have family or friends visiting in town, please either leave them at home or drop them off to do shopping, etc. Sessions only last about 60-90 minutes, and it will better serve you if we can focus upon you alone.
3. If you are booking a session for a young child, please allow yourself time to stay with your child. I can put an extra chair into the treatment room for this purpose.
4. If you have small children & wish to take a class, please arrange for child care rather than bringing them with you. It will better serve you.
5. If you are booking a class for a young child, please make arrangements so that you may attend with your child. You may either both participate in the class (and pay for 2 participants), or stay to supervise & support your child (and pay only for your child's class).
