Hello, my name is Kimberly Miller Nadwairski and my passion is helping people connect with their most healthy selves. To help YOU connect with your peace, truth and power.
 I am a Reiki Master in the Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage, and have been studying an practicing since 2015.
I am also an animal lover, nature lover and an artist. I love to make wire wrapped crystal pendants to share the healing power of crystals with the world.
When I was drawn to Reiki it was because I was feeling lost in the world. Invisible. I was aware of my talents but I felt disconnected from my purpose. I knew there had to be “something more”, and the more I learned about the energetic bodies that we all are, and the inherent connection that we all have with our Creator, with our surroundings, with each other and with our own physical bodies, the more I wanted to share the knowledge and all the many, truly helpful, practices that were working for me. 
A Reiki session is a blend of healing and balancing the physical body, mind and soul at the energetic level, while you comfortable relax (fully clothed) and allow the healing in. Reiki is a sort of meditation for the recipient and you will only be asked to BREATHE.
In a Reiki session I often use the amazing energetic qualities of crystals to assist in balancing the Chakras which will unlock the process of the body’s power to heal itself. I will share pertinent information with the recipient of Reiki to further help them find the path to their greatest balance and optimal health. Reiki isn’t a quick fix magic session, it is a doorway to our true selves and our greatest and highest good.
The Reiki sessions are quite relaxing. All you need to do is be open to receive and allow me to guide the loving, healing light of Creator to you, with intuitive hands. 
Everyone is unique and has their own challenges to learn to navigate. And so, more than one session is highly recommended to really learn how to change patterns and pain, into peace and healthy balance.           
You can expect an energy shift in your body mind and spirit from a Reiki session. You can expect to be relaxed and comfortable. You may experience all sorts of different feelings both physical and emotional. Some people see colors or images arise. Some have a fleeting memory or thought. Some people don’t experience very much and are just so relaxed they fall asleep. It’s ALL GOOD! You simply note what you experience, and they rest will fall into place. 
In a comfortable private room, you will be lying on your back, fully clothed for about 45 minutes. Before and after your session there is a few minutes to fill out the intake form and discuss things you’d like to change in your life, or physical being…things you’re are struggling with, or things that you are looking forward too.
Soft soothing music will play, and you will feel gentle touch of my hands on the feet, under the knees, hips, stomach, upper chest, hands, shoulders and forehead and sides of the head.
Very often I use small crystal stones placed at the chakra location on the body to help clear, and balance the energy there.
You may express your feelings, or say out loud what you are noticing, or ask a question if you are moved to. But in general, the session is quiet to allow us both to notice what we notice.
Tuning in, quieting the mind, breathing are all important parts of Reiki.
You need not believe in the energetic exchange for it to be effective but is very helpful for you to have a heart of ALLOWING the healing to happen. You may not even experience anything noticeable, but most clients do notice things and certainly leave the session with a feeling of well being and rejuvenation.
I look forward to helping you achieve your highest and greatest good!

Cheryl Benanti

Cheryl Benanti is a Reiki Master and owner of Reiki Will Travel LLC, a mobile business traveling to home and business's for private sessions and special events. 
Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is a gentle 'hands-on' relaxation and healing technique. Reiki is administered through a soft touch while sitting or lying down – fully clothed. It is a holistic therapy that removes blocks to the flow of energy in your body and facilitates balance and support on many levels. When the energy flow in your body is restored and/or balanced, you are more likely to feel relaxed and your body’s natural healing abilities are utilized.
Reiki can be used to complement or enhance your current medical plan or simply provide the opportunity for deep relaxation. Reiki also promotes psychological healing, including release of anger, fear, worry, sadness and other unhealthy feelings, and replaces them with self-worth, tranquility. It can increase confidence, ease chronic pain. Reiki can also lessen anxiety and tension, decrease fatigue, strengthen the immune system, reduce the effects of stress and provide a sense of well being and peace. The client may feel warmth, coolness, gentle tingling and/or a deep sense of relaxation. Reiki balances the energies of the body and works on physical, emotional and spiritual levels.
