Kimberly Miller Nadwairski

Artist, Reiki Master, Holistic & Mindful Living Advocate

Several years ago, I took some time to immerse myself in energy work and became attuned, Reiki Level
3 Usui lineage, which lead me on a path that has influenced all of my decisions and practices since.
Employing all the puzzle pieces, that I have learned over the years, work for me, and setting an intention
for “mindful living”, has been an incredibly positive and highly effective experience for me. I use my
new habits to keep my vibe high rather than the old patterns keeping me in a loop of “wanting
something else” or feeling “not enough.”
Before, I felt lost and hopeless about my talents, my relationships, my coping abilities, and my body was
hurting. I was living negatively. I had to learn how to live positively. It is an ongoing process.
I feel it is my calling to help others who are in that same place. To navigate all the powerful tools that
are available and to help bring their own lives and bodies (Ki/Chi) into balance with the universal energy
(Rei/Ray) is powerful, vital and real.

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.
