A friend referred me to the Reiki School and Clinic. I felt stuck in a rut and was looking for a way to get “unstuck”. I work in corporate America and was a little apprehensive about the school and the people who taught there. Would I fit in? Would I be the “square old guy”? And what was reiki anyway? My experience could not have been better. The teachers and staff were so welcoming and caring that I felt comfortable right away. My classmates were all different ages and came from all different walks of life. There were just as many men as women and the age range was from early twenties to early sixties. The instructor (Kim) presented the information in a way that encouraged the students to experience reiki in their own unique way. My life has truly changed for the better and I am definitely “unstuck”. Whether you want to study reiki or receive a treatment, I would highly recommend the Reiki School and Clinic. You won’t be disappointed.
Student sessions are a great way to get acquainted to Reiki or supplement your other ways of self care while being gentle on the wallet!
Michael Murphy is the Best Massage Therapist I have ever received a massage from. I was in desperate need for a massage, even my angel cards told me to get one, I kid you not! I was lucky enough to get a free massage during a Penn Medicine conference on 9/21/12. I had no idea that I would be able to breathe so much better! I needed some serious work done on my back and I knew I would need some elbow pressure and he was absolutely perfect! He had the perfect touch between massage and reiki. I felt like I was high (in a great way of course) and at perfect peace for the rest of day and the following day! I felt like I was getting more air in my lungs. The experience made me wonder was I breathing wrong all of this time!? LOL! Was I not getting full function of my lungs before? It was just
A-MA-ZING! A trip to heaven in one 15 minute session! I can't even imagine how my body would react from a half hour or an hour session! I definitely want one! >:D I kid you not, Michael is AWESOME! I think Archangel Michael had something to do with this. He sent me his namesake! Thank you both! >:D #SOGRATEFUL!
A little slice of heaven right here on earth! – Reiki with Michael Murphy is like a slice of heaven right here on earth. I had a series of 3 sessions with him to help me deal with a variety of issues—stress, burnout, serious asthma problems, thyroiditis, and anemia. In looking back, I see those sessions as a key element in my recovery from all of those issues. During each session, it was like he was looking at a map of my mind/body/spirit continuum, and was sending Reiki energy to all the “dark” and “energy-needing” places. At the end of each session my system felt rewired in the best possible way. Michael’s caring manner, ability to listen, understanding, and gentleness made the sessions a joy to experience. The money I paid for the sessions ($60.00 per session) was nothing compared with what I got out of them—health, healing, rejuvenation, abundance, and lots of energy!
Massage/CranioSacral Therapy with Erik – As a RM/MT myself, I know a great massage therapist when I come across one. I know how important it is to take care of yourself and get bodywork done. I also know how good it feels and how healing it is. As a 7 month pregnant woman, I LOVED getting a pregnancy massage from Erik. I'd had one other pregnancy massage at another location with a different therapist, and it was substandard to say the least. Erik far exceeded my expecations. I left the table feeling like I'd had a regular massage, not a fluffy pregnancy massage, I was new and relaxed and the tension of all of the extra weight was lifted. When I went for Cranio Sacral Therapy, I walked in feeling tired and worn out. I left the table feeling like a new person. I felt like I could do anything (physically and emotionally). I know good bodywork, and Erik is fantastic!!.
I've got to get in a few more sessions before baby comes. All of you pregnant mamas, PLEASE treat yourself to many of his massages! Those of you who aren't expecting.... you NEED to go to him. There are some things in life you shouldn't miss out on! This is one of them!
super relaxing Head Massage! – I have been receiving Indian Head Massages from Erik Everts now for well over a year, and they just keep on getting better and better!! The Indian Head Massage is an ancient modality used in traditional Indian medicine, and finally we are benefitting form its magic now here in the states. It addresses the key areas where most of our computer using society suffers: the upper back and neck, down into each arm and each finger, the forearm massage (my personal favorite--who would have thought that this part of the body could make u melt if u massage it?) and of course, the scalp and whole rotation of the head. It is very transporting and totally relaxing. I often see colors when i get one. Its also a perfect intro massage for people that are sceeved about taking their clothes off--its seated and clothed. I really appreciate Erik's knowledge about the service--it certainly adds to the experience--because, I assure you, you have never experienced any other massage quite like this one!
Ayurvedic Head Massage. The benefit of focused body and energy work. – I received an amazing ayurvedic head massage from Erik Everts at the Reiki School. The treatment is focused on the neck, face, scalp, arms, hands, upper back, and shoulders, with a chakra balancing chaser. My upper body is regularly stiff and tight, and I get headaches.This treatment was extremely relaxing and rejuvenating. All of my physical stress collects in my shoulders, and I usually look like an urban sherpa with too many bags hanging from my body, so I am often looking to massage for relief. I had no idea how good it was going to feel to have the muscles under my scalp massaged. Ok, getting your hair washed before it gets cut feels good?not even close! The same was true with the muscles in my face.
The positive effects of the treatment went well beyond the physical. I have had reiki (at the school?awesome!), shiatsu, and other forms of energy work. I don?t understand the how or why of it all, but I am the type that does not need to know what is happening to benefit from it. The ayurvedic head massage works to balance the chakras and energy flows.
And, if all of that was not enough, the treatments are given out of one of the most calming, relaxing, nurturing places on the planet?the Reiki School!
expectations exceeded – Laurie far exceeded my expectations as a Reiki practitioner. She made me feel very comfortable during my first session, when I knew practically nothing about how it worked or what I might feel. After receiving more sessions I learned of the joy that teaching Reiki brings to her life. I have never met someone so dedicated to practicing and spreading goodwill through therapy. Laurie is truly an expert -- paved by her passion in this sacred practice.
Recommended with Enthusiasm! – My experience with the Reiki School has been outstanding. I find their foundress, Kim, to be a creative, engaging, and dynamic person, as well as an inspiring leader. Michael Murphy is a fine human being, and specializes in offering safe and healing massage and reiki. I have experienced his work myself to great advantage. And I have spoken to many others who have received his work, each greatly benefitting from his skill and his care. Michael works on a great diversity of people, and knows wisely how to best treat them. I highly recommend him without reserve.
Michael Murphy- truly gifted massage and Reiki practitioner – Michael Murphy is the best massage therapist and Reiki practitioner I have ever worked with! I myself am a Reiki Master and Holistic Health Practitioner. As a result of my profession I have had many gifted people work on me. I have been receiving massages for 20 years. Michael is singular. A session with him is pure bliss. He is dedicated to the ideals of Reiki and the healing of the body. As a Reiki Master, Michael is also an excellent teacher. He is my Reiki Master. On a personal note, his energy is fabulous and fun.
