Whether you’re looking for a therapeutic massage or reiki service, Vanesa provides a variety of styles to suit your needs for pain relief and stress management.

Usui Reiki Level 1 Practitioner

After gaining experience as a registered massage therapist, Vanesa felt there was something missing in her practice. As a massage therapist, she can help her clients address and manage physical pain.

However, her university background in Psychology and English Literature helped her to realize that there are various factors that contribute to pain, including that of emotions and energy blockages.

She began to research about how she can expand her skill set and help her clients unlock more aspects of the source of their pains.

She discovered Reiki a few years ago with a friend, but it wasn’t until she received her mentorship with Christine Gosse, Usui Reiki Master, at Lavender Lane Wellness Centre, that it finally clicked for her.

Vanesa immediately signed up for the Reiki practitioner course and fell in love with the eye opening benefits of Reiki and how it can help propel her clients’ self-healing journeys even further.
