Episode #2: How to get your Energy Back and Boost Immunity during #Lockdown2020: REMOTE REIKI

How can you get your energy back and boost your immunity during the Covid19 #lockdown? Remote Reiki.

In the same situation as many health and wellbeing practitioners, I have had to close the physical doors to my practice due to the Corona Virus Pandemic. Luckily though I can still provide most of my services remotely, and it is really important to me to be able to do this at this time, more than any other – the world needs healing!

In this podcast I cover the basics of how and why Remote Reiki works, and more importantly I interview a client of mine who has been working with me remotely for more than 2 years, since she moved interstate.
