  • Root Medicine | Acupuncture & Women's Wellness

    2956 Central St. Evanston, IL. 60201 United States (map)

“My clients often tell me I have a “gift” for channeling healing energy. I’m here to tell you, anyone who’s been attuned to Reiki can channel life force energy to enhance the body’s own healing mechanisms and improve quality of life on physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

You are no exception.

Attendees of this one-day class will learn the history, philosophy and protocols of working with Reiki, and be attuned to this incredible energy. Reiki is an excellent means of self care, and is being incorporated into hospital treatment plans across the country as medical and non-medical personnel have come to recognize its ability to reduce stress and expedite healing.

Additionally, thanks to modern technology, scientific data now corroborates mountains of anecdotal evidence.

Is Reiki a gift? Yes!

Is it limited to a select few? No!

Everyone should be doing everything they can to heal themselves and the planet right now. Reiki is ideal for:
Parents of children
Loving spouses
Children of aging parents
Caring friends
Massage therapists & LCSWs (earn 6 CE hours!)
Compassionate citizens
Anyone searching for more meaning in life

This first step is nothing short of a life-changing adventure. Still not sure? Watch this video, then we'll see you in class!”

Cost: $150. Text, class materials, Reiki session, fun, and a special gift are included.
Class size is limited to 8, so register early.

To register, call 773.771.3404 or email

Should you need to cancel up to two weeks prior to class, refunds will be given by crediting your form of payment. Less than two weeks prior to class, monetary refunds will not be given, rather attendance in a subsequent class will be offered.

Additionally, thanks to modern technology, scientific data now corroborates mountains of anecdotal evidence.

Is Reiki a gift? Yes!

Is it limited to a select few? No!

Everyone should be doing everything they can to heal themselves and the planet right now. Reiki is ideal for:
Parents of children
Loving spouses
Children of aging parents
Caring friends
Massage therapists & LCSWs (earn 6 CE hours!)
Compassionate citizens
Anyone searching for more meaning in life

This first step is nothing short of a life-changing adventure. Still not sure? Watch this video, then we'll see you in class!”

Cost: $150. Text, class materials, Reiki session, fun, and a special gift are included.
Class size is limited to 8, so register early.
