Gina Dinkey Reiki Healer
Wednesdays 7:15 pm Community Reiki with Crystals
Moving to the area three years ago and making the break from my yoga studio, created a void. Visiting the Rail Trail is my way to get some peace and fresh air, but then I remembered a Reiki intro I went to many years ago. Being in a constant state of stress, I knew it was the right time to do something for myself, so I trained as a Reiki practitioner. This training takes sight, sound and smell to a whole new level and awakens the daily grind. I am very thankful to all that I have met in this welcoming community and want to share this healing with others.
