"I am proud to be a Reiki Master training others in northwest Ohio and one of the practitioners bringing CCT - Crystalline Consciousness Technique, Rosen Method and the Seven Gateways here. They are in every way revolutionary modalities for all sorts of health challenges, as well as selfgrowth, inner work and spiritual development.
Reiki is a beautiful modality that feels personal and loving and can bring such peace. It as well as the innovative Crystalline Consciousness Technique (CCT) is changing the world. Both give us tools and resources unforeseen just a few years ago"
