"I was lost, but am on my way to being found. Joan
and her gift of Reiki have done more for me in a short period of
time, than years of therapy ever did. Through Reiki with Joan, I
am learning self-love, freedom and the power of me, within me.
Joan's support, paired with Reiki healing, and its ability to
connect on the deepest of levels, is a blessing beyond anything
words could ever convey. I will forever be grateful! Truly a
Long distance Reiki sessions with Joan have been a great and
wonderful experience. Not only have I been feeling more energetic
but I feel more positive. I have had back pain, migraines as well
as stress issues which amazingly Joan picked up automatically
without me telling her. Since our sessions I have had no back
pain and my migraines have subsided by an enormous amount. I wake
every morning feeling fresh and new. I would recommend Reiki with
Joan to everyone; she truly has an amazing gift. Iím so blessed
to have met her, no Dr could help me in the way that Joan has.
Thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart,
ďMy experience with Joan was beyond words! She is gentle, loving,
tuned-in and highly intuitive. Her words of wisdom soften my heavy
heart during a particularly challenging time. I left our session
with an overwhelming sense of peace and well-being. I would highly
recommend this gifted, natural healer to anyone in need!Ē

Reiki has really improved the way I relate to my students and my
teaching. I have more patience in the classroom and feel more
accepting of their behavior which also has improved. Students
will call out a greeting across campus when they use to ignore me
even if there was eye contact. Students come up to me and give me
hugs. People come into my classroom and tell me that it feels
welcoming. I look forward to each day and I know that they feel
I have not told my students about Reiki but I know they are
feeling the compassion that I feel. It has made my life and
relationships richer and more meaningful. It has truly changed my

To me, the motivation for doing something comes from the results
you get. Iím a skeptic at heart, which is why I was anxious to
experience the effects of the Reiki treatments, just to prove to
myself that there was some benefit to it.
The level of stress that I was under is what sent me to Joan
Darlene. Iíve done some research and found that stress can affect
every inch of your body. Each time you become stressed out, your
body produces large amounts of Cortical, a steroid hormone that
makes your body create excess oil; this will clog pores and glands
and lead to blemish issues. Stress hormones will suppress the
immune system, elevate blood pressure and dangerously raises the
activity of the limbic system of the brain, the emotional center.
Sound like a basket case? I was.
After my first visit, my energy level had improved. I slept deeper
and my creative ability was restored. I had been suffering from
writerís block for weeks. I experienced a feeling of well being
that lasted for days.
A flare up of my right thumb joint sent me to Joan a second time.
It was red, swollen and I could barely move it without
excruciating pain. I couldnít open anything and typing was out of
the question. I was beginning to believe that arthritis had
claimed it and I would just have to live with it. The day after my
treatment, the pain was gone!
You donít have to believe me, just try it for yourself. If it
doesnít help you, then stop. But if you donít try it, youíll never
know what you are missing.

My experience with Joan as my Reiki teacher has been life
changing. She has taught me how to relax while treating a client,
and to even keep my sense of humor. I tend to take everything too
serious and want my sessions-every one of them- to be perfect.
Perfect in my mind isn't always what our Higher Power has in mind.
Healing energy is Joan's heart's desire; passing this knowledge on
to others is her passion. Her insight is inspirational and a
reminder to all that: "The more we acknowledge and honor our
intuition, the more we will be able to receive."

I woke up a few weeks ago with a very painful cramp in my left
hip. I could feel the knot down very deep. The pain was so bad, I
could not sleep the rest of the night. I was limping the next
morning and my husband was encouraging me to make a doctor's
appointment. I called Joan and asked if she could take a look at
my leg. I only told her it was my left leg and explained nothing
more. Joan energetically "scanned" my leg, and told me there was a
knot in my left hip. She began working on my hip and at first it
was a little painful as I could feel the knot begin to dissipate.
After a few minutes, Joan told me the knot was gone! I got up and
walked around and ALL the pain was gone. I was not limping
anymore! Thanks a million Joan!
In June of 2009, our dog, Rascal, my adorable little Shitzu,
became very ill. We took him to the vet and they did not expect
him to live. The vet said he had swallowed something that he would
not be able to pass. They sent us home with no hope. He was so
lethargic he could not walk on his own. At the time, he was only 1
years old. The thought of losing my baby was more than I could
take. I called Joan and she knew the urgency of the situation. She
re-arranged her schedule and came right over to our house. Rascal
was lying lifeless on the floor. His eyes did not look like he was
completely there with us. Joan worked on Rascal with her Reiki.
After the first session, Rascal was able to sit up by himself but
could not walk. Joan told us Rascal needed one more session. She
came back the next day and to our complete amazement, after the
session, Rascal was walking around! I could not believe it! Within
a couple of days, Rascal was running and playing again! Joan truly
saved my baby! There are no words that can explain my gratitude!

After the birth of my son I battled severe anxiety, hormonal
imbalances, and what I know now to be depression. Although I
considered myself 'happy', I was scared of living and breathing in
the moment. Being a very introverted and prideful person, I was
never able to trust anyone enough to truly express my feelings,
emotions, and disappointments. In retrospect, I now know that all
of my anxiety and fears stemmed from never acknowledging and
'releasing' all the things in my life that I never had dealt with.
I was a bottomless pit of unresolved issues that finally bottomed
out. Thus, fear began to rule my life. Drugs and prescription
medication were not an option for me in my mind, and although I
try to prescribe to a healthy lifestyle, I still suffered greatly.
That is until I met Joan. Reiki changed my life truly and
honestly. After some weeks of intense therapy, I can finally say
that I am free.. For me, reiki was amazing journey of spirituality
and self-love. Fear no longer controls my life. I am so grateful
for Joan's healing gifts and what they have done for me and my
